Things to give up for Lent and life

  • The Fear:

Some people say that this one is easier said than done, but it is possible. The fear is a self-inflicted pain that none of us need in our lives. Nothing that you did last night is the end of the world; it will pass in 48 hours and never be spoken of again. Breathe and in the wise words of Elsa from Frozen: let it go.


  • “Fat Nights” with the girloz:

These are fun, but not for your hips. Next time get low fat yoghurts, crackers and hummus or pistachios to accompany your gossiping and moaning. You’ll feel a lot better for it.


  • Always blaming the other woman:

If you have ever been unfortunate enough to have an overlap between your boyfriend (or crush) and another girl, please, for the love of God, know where to place the blame. He is responsible for the overlap. She owes you nothing, it was his fault. Remember that and learn to love your ladies.


  • Binge watching Netflix:

Many a brave soul has lost their life before this cruel mistress. You can literally spend your entire day watching Suits and not even realise it. This is a colossal waste of your valuable time. Watch two episodes in a row so it feels like a movie, then get off the couch.


  • Gym clothes outside of the gym:

This one doesn’t even need to be justified. Stop it. We know and you know that you are just shopping and are neither on your way to the gym nor are you just finished in the gym. You ain’t fooling nobody.


  • Tea and Biscuits:

Here’s a little secret: it is actually possibly to consume a warm beverage without having a couple biscuits with it. Simple as.
