Well, my Nine Day contest definitely isn't for Lent, but it sure is for a greater sense of self empowerment.
At least that is what I'm telling myself after the first 24 hours of abstinence.
I am a self-confessed 2x/day-er. Morning and night.
What's wrong with that?
But last night as I put my friend The Blue Dolphin (whom you may refer to as BOB in your life) away somewhere so I wouldn't be reminded of him in the days to come, I thought this little experimental contest with The Photographer is exactly in line with my goals....to achieve control over things that I choose to control. Eating, exercising, self-gratification, it is all one in the same!
Even though The Photographer got cutesy on me, sending over a shirtless photo of himself to "push me over the edge," while razzing me that I couldn't last 24 hours, I held out!
It's in the bag. I got this.
