I made it!

Lent is over today and I have made it (some days barely) without sweets and sugar (except for fruit and my morning cereal) for 40 days!!!!
I have to say this was way harder than last year’s only giving up chocolate. This year was chocolate plus everything else: ice cream, cake, cup-cakes, brownies, cookies, candy, and tons of other things I use to eat and now I have already forgotten about. But Tuesday afternoon, after work I am planing to go to MAKE MY CAKE 103 Central Park North, 212-932-0833 for a slice of rich red velvet cake with cream cheese icing! Oh, I can almost taste it!

Ok, I have NOT made it. I still have one more week of Lent to go… I guess that slice of cake will just have to wait until after Easter… : ( Was this an April Fool’s Day prank? Not funny!

  8. Wow you have some willpower! I tried to give up diet coke once, I made it about an hour. The swearing and cussing started…and they made me drink it or else!

  17. Technically, yes, it’s on St. Nicks… both avenues cross on 116th street, and “Make My Cake” is on the north-west corner. Either Adam Powell or St Nick will get you there 🙂
