Marching on

The month of March is upon us, obviously!  The first two months were fairly pleasant, weather wise. The whole nation was embraced by this really cool to the point of being cold climate. My kind of weather, perfect, really!

Appropriate weather to stay in bed a bit longer in the mornings all tucked in with many pillows and kumot (light blanket). I've been catching up on my long list of movies to watch, rekindling my passion and also updating my other blog where I get to put on my 'movie critic' hat. This reminds me why I started a blog in the first place .. to fuel my love for the art of cinema and sharpen my writing skills, kuno.

Being a practicing Catholic, the first day of March marked the start of the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday. So yesterday, D and I heard mass and 'got crossed'. Lent is a time of profound reflection and fervent prayers to atone for our sins. It is also a time for sacrifices which can take the form of fasting and abstinence (abstain from eating meat on Lenten Fridays).  Ever since I was born, our family has followed this tradition so surely I will adhere and conform. Besides it (not eating meat) can do good for one's health regimen. 

Speaking of diet, I'm glad to announce that I have managed to stick to my exercise routine of working out 5 days a week. Yet I am not obsessed to the point that I weigh myself constantly. In fact, I have no idea what my current weight is but I feel lighter,  more energetic and it helps brighten my disposition ... so I'm marching on. =)
