Shopping for things I don't need. So, obviously I'll pay bills and put gas in the car, but no new clothes, and, since it's not necessary, no buying junk food or alcohol.

I won't be eating after 8pm, unless it's a real meal that I missed because the day went long, or if there is a special event with loved ones. This will cut out the mindless bedtime snacking and give my insides a rest! It makes me cranky if I eat before bed, so this will be an improvement in me for sure. :)

good luck with that!!! Not sure I'm strong enough for that one! O_o

LOL......love it!
Are people giving up things for Lent because of religious beliefs or just giving things up because it seems to be the thing to do? Just curious.

I am trying to get a good goal! I have always loved Lent to set goals and get positively focused. One year I gave up coffee which was terrible tongue but otherwise it has always been a great way to follow through on a goal. Help me come up with ideas, just dont take away my wine or coffee!!

What are you giving up for Lent this year?

ME TOO....OH MY GAWD!!cry sad

Last year I di the "Daniel fast" which pretty much eliminates all processed food and meat...thinking I'll repeat it again this year.

Nothing! I gave up Lent in my teens.
