Day 31

Happy Ash Wednesday! I need to find out what time mass is tonight, I really don't want to miss it. My husband isn't Catholic so I'm wondering if I should drag him along with me. I really don't want to go alone. It seems like no one from Seattle is Catholic. Out of all my friends, I have one that is Catholic. This is my best friend and she happens to be from the East Coast.
Moving on, I really want to start working out again at the gym. I walk my dog a lot but I feel like that's not enough. I know I will feel MUCH better once I start. Maybe I can go tonight after church. I haven't decided what to give up for Lent. I'm thinking about candy and sweets because that's something I love.
Last night I did pretty well until I found my Valentine's chocolate and took comfort in eating half the box.
Today should be intresting, my boss wants to talk to me again. It's usually a big cry fest. =(
My plan for today~
B- Oatmeal & Coffee - 250
S- Gold Fish - 150
S- Apple - 100
L- Sweet Potato/Veggie Burger - 280
D- Leftover Ziti & Bread w/ wine ~ gosh I'm a drunk


  1. Yes it really BOOSTS my self confidence! LOL NOT! I am a total magnet for weirdos too... my friends always laugh and tell me "someone WOULD say that to you!"
    YES get back in that gym! When you are there... remember I am going thru the same torture!
    Good luck w/ your boss =)

  2. Yep I will be dying also. I am thinking about taking up running outside more when the weather gets warmer and less rainy!

  3. About the Catholic thing, I'm not Catholic either. Paul is, so I go with him to masses and what not. We went to the noon mass today at his parents' church.

    I lived in Indianapolis, Indiana til I was 12, and wasn't really pushed to go to church. I ended up moving to PA and was baptized in a Methodist Church and am considered Methodist.

    I'm trying to convert to Catholicism though, so hopefully that goes over well. =).

    Is your DH non-religious or is he a different religion?

  4. DH is pretty muzch non-religious. I don't push Catholicism on him and was pretty shocked he wanted to go to church. Question for you~ Did you receive ashes? I'm not sure if he should or not?

  5. Yes I did. All Christians (or Non for that matter) are able to receive ashes. The only thing he isn't "allowed" to do is receive communion..which I have not either. Sorry if it's a little late.

  6. P.S. It's very understandable..I'm not what is considered as a "bible thump" either. I didn't push my religion on Paul either, he didn't either, but I just figured it would mean more to him (and his full-blood catholic parents) to convert to a practicing catholic. =)

    Although, maybe you can help me with this...We were going to a church in Dingmans Ferry (where we live), the priest (whom we were going to ask to marry us..then changed after a series of unfortunate events..and his deacon insulting me and other people from Dingmans)...the priest told us that he was able to travel to other venues to marry us...however, after being insulted by the deacon of his church, we decided to talk to the priest from Paul's old church, and he said that they are not allowed to marry anyone outside of a church venue...

    Is this true? Were you married by a Catholic priest, or was it in a church?
    We were a little confused after hearing two different statements, and we are definitely willing to change our plans to get married in that church (it's gorgeous). I was just curious if you knew anything about it, or if you could help me out a little bit.

    Anything would be greatly appreciated. =)

  8. Kind of dissapointed that I miss mass...think it's the first year I haven't gone...I remember going when we lived on 128th street and getting a hot coffee when we asked for iced on the hottest day of the year HAHA. Yup can't wait to start working out again too! My goal is to lose 15-18 pounds by June a little over 3 months if I start FRESH on monday.

  9. Good question! We weren't married by a Catholic priest. I think you must promise to raise your children Catholic. The non-catholic doesn't partake in the sacraments, but your marriage is valid, in the eyes of the church...

    I would talk to Paul's priest... and if he's "stuffy" talk to one who is a bit more liberal.

  10. I'm ready to start fresh too. My mom grabbed some extra ashes if you want some later. LYB!
