I am giving up Diet Mountain Dew(which is going to be TOUGH since I drink at least 2 a day) and am going to be sure to read my In Conversation with God Devotional daily, and pray the rosary daily.

I have been thinking about this for a few weeks and just cannot decide. I like the idea of complimenting a stranger each day, but I still feel the need to give up something. I have a couple days, I'm sure I'll think of something.

Television, this is going to be a challange but I am hoping to really begin to make better choices on how to spend my time.

I'm not giving up anything, but I'm going to go to daily Mass twice a week (and of course Sunday Mass). My best Lent ever though, was around 7 years ago and I gave up sugar. No sweets, no adding sugar to coffee or anything else...and to this day, I've maintained it. Once in a great while, I'll eat sweets, and I do use honey in tea, but I haven't touched a box of sugar or any other refined sugar in darned near 7 years, except when baking Christmas cookies.

I consider my giving up sugar a miracle, lol.

As much as I hate to.... ugh... I'm going to give up alcohol .. so no more beers for me. Except for the one that I may have Tuesday night, just as a last hurrah until Lent is over


That's right! Fat Tuesday!

I think I may give up weighing myself. Might as well see what can happen in that amount of time. Have my fiancee hide it on me and then after Easter take it out and see what it says.

I am constantly taking my grandaughters to McDonalds! It's not good for me or them. So, that is what I'm giving up. As for the post on where I would use the money? I will give it to St. Judes Hospital for kids with Cancer.

sugar... how the heck I'm going to manage, I have no idea :(
February 11, 2013 7:44 AM
Rather than give something up, I plan to do devotions everyday..something I really need to work on.

I'm going to give up refined sugars/simple carbs but I'd like to try gaining something, too... like maybe learning a new word every day or something :)
