Where my family comes from, Mardi Gras is a big, big deal. Fat Tuesday, the day before lent, is a day of epic indulgence. It is a day when folks get together and splurge on food, drinks and fun…
And while I have only participated in the festivities a few times in my life, I always used this day as an excuse to eat in excess until last year. Now it’s just another day – a day in which I will eat responsibly and exercise. My plan is to indulge in a 5k or a 10k. Why not? 😉
In spite of my lack of willingness to indulge in food and drinks, I couldn’t let this day go unnoticed. It is, indeed, a part of my heritage. And I always smile at the thought of my mom catching beads and stuffed animals and other fun things at the parades. =0)
Do you celebrate Mardi Gras? Is there anything special about this Tuesday for you? How do you plan on making this day a success for yourself?
I plan on making today an incredible day! Laissez Le Bon Temps Roulet
