40 Days and 40 Nights

Let me just get this out there right now: I am a bad Catholic. Matter fact, I might even be a better Buddhist, but I digress. However, if you’re a “good” Catholic you are probably giving up a vice today in acknowledgment of Lent to which I say bravo my child of the Lord, bravo. But if you’re giving up a bad habit like smoking cigarettes … why not just make Lent 365 days a year then? Just sayin.

Anyway, like I said I’m not a good Catholic so I will be giving up … NOTHING! Well, maybe meat on Fridays … or maybe not. I gave up rice one time and as a Filipina I believe that should 1) be a sin in itself, and 2) give me a free pass to heaven. All I know is if I do give up something, it will be for the same reason I got my college diploma. To prove to myself that I can accomplish something if I really put my mind to it.

Coincidentally, today marks the first day of me attempting to minimize eating out and maximize my paycheck. I went grocery shopping Monday but got busy and didn’t get a chance to prepare food until last night. So as inspired by my girl Tee, I will be chronicling my meals until I get the results I want or get lazy of blogging them – whichever comes first lol. Sometimes it helps to see proof. Hopefully, this combined with starting my new gym membership that forces me to go 3x a week, my body will be so bangin that I wanna fuck myself!

So I didn’t buy these. But I’ve never seen them before. And I’m kinda salivating at the thought.


I was in such a rush shopping, I didn’t realize my fucking cart was full. Surprisingly, I only spent $95 and that’s on food that should last me about 2 weeks! I guess healthy food is cheap ‘cuz nobody wants to fucking eat it. Even if I ate out only on the weekends, I’d still save at least $100 if I stick to this.
