Day 4 Lenten Update

Breakfast: Three scrambled eggs, a bowl of Trix, a bottle of juice that promised two servings of fruit, and a big glass of water.

My stomach feels like it could explode. Something I'll wish I had later on today.

But you know, aside from the hunger pangs, abstaining from food and drink all day isn't so horrible. It's not as if I'm in pain or anything. But I do write to you to inform you that I cheated last night. No, I didn't eat or drink before sundown, that'd be too obvious. But I didn't pack a lunch to have later that night, and resorted to the vending machine.

I was starving, so I grabbed the 1.25 hamburger, and went to town. On a Friday.

Cheater!

I know what I did wasn't a sin, as Mark Hart explained to me on his Web site.  I completely forgot about it being Friday, and by the time I realized it, I was about to take my first bite. Should I have put the hamburger down? I rationalized that I should eat the burger, as I had already spent money on it, and letting food go to waste is a huge pet peeve of mine.

So I finished down that burger and side of chips (bacon, no less. I'm a mess) and went back to work.

Hopefully today won't include any mistakes, accidental or not.
