Top 10 Things to Give Up For Lent, or Forever!

Some of us have a religious upbringing, and at the very least we have learned from the news about sacrificing something for Lent. Now that I have run out of teenagers and livestock, I had to put together a new list.

The principal of sacrifice is to give up something that is meaningful to you, which; reminds you of the atonement. For some it's booze, others it is treats, and some swearing at the TV. You may not have made up your mind, so here are a couple of thoughts.

-1 Tebowing: Though it might make 2012 New Words List for Webster's American English Dictionary, that fad is over. You can now sit on your a$$ in the end field crying like Tom Brady.

-2 Diary Lying: Is that all you ate? Come on! And remember, omission is the same. Log it!

-3 Board Bitching: Posting stupid rants to inflame others on the message boards. GTFU!

-4 Worshipping the Scale: The scale is a false God, I suggest the true religion of the tape measure!

-5 Posting Before Searching in the Message Boards: People, you are not the first one to try losing weight using MFP. Yes, you should eat your exercise calories! No wait, don't! I mean just half of them!

-6 Making Excuses for Overeating: It's your life, how about emptying the junk from the house, buying healthy food for the week, and planning for it too? Going out to eat? Just about every restaurant has a dietary menu. You should bookmark them in your smart phone.

-7 Incomplete Statuses: You know the type, just enough info so people will ask you what's going on? IE: "I can't believe I ate one!" What? Are you allergic to peanuts, is that why you couldn't finish the post? Or, "I am going to kill somebody!" As long as it's you, I guess I won't call 911. "I know somebody who slept with Obama!" Other than, Michele?

-8 Posting Toilet Cleaning as Cardio: There are some things you need to keep to yourself.

-9 Weighing In Every Single Day: Makes you nuts, right?

-10 Paying with Pennies: It makes people mad who are waiting inline behind you!

Thanks for the votes and comments. See you after vacation!

What a great Blog entry!! I love it. I honestly think I'm giving up texting though as it gets me in more trouble than it's worth.

So how many calories does toilet cleaning burn??? Hmmm. ;)

Hey! I totally love paying with pennies! You can use the self checkout at Wal-Mart and drive the line behind you INSANE!!! People are so fun to mess with! =D And seriously... sometimes that's all I've got left at the end of paying the bills... pennies. =) LOVE all your posts. Keep 'em coming.

Dang, as soon as I saw Tebowing, I was going to ask if Bradying was an acceptable substitute, but you beat me to the punch. Great list!

Damn...I was so going to pull an "ommission" on the logging tonight, I have never before but embarrased about my lunch today. I will keep it honest, pull up my big girl panties and take the heat like a grown-up.
