Well with my wedding in 130 days and Spring just around the corner the annual Lent tradition came into my head. I’m not Catholic but I do believe you can participate in this tradition if you want. So what am I giving up for lent you ask? I’m giving up many weaknesses and I’m going to try my hardest to live up to my goal. I can’t eat the following for 46 days
Bread (12 grain I will allow)
There you have it and I have made it public knowledge so no turning back. What are you ladies giving up?

I’m not giving something up rather doing more. Go out of my way more for people, be kinder, be charitable.

I’m not Catholic so I don’t really “give up things” for lent but I do try to work on something personally— so this lent i’m going to work on what I consider to be my biggest flaw: my lack of patience!

I think I’m just going to be much more mindful of my spending and continue this after Lent. We just signed the contract to purchase a co-op so the mindful spending has to happen regardless, but Lent will (hopefully) help reinforce it. 🙂

I’m giving up being lazy at the gym. I haven’t gone much since my wedding and it’s time to get back in there again!

I’m not giving anything for lent. I’m going to plan my wedding for lent. I don’t tend to give things up, I’m not Catholic. But I’ve been very lazy with my wedding plans, so my goal is to have barely anything left by the end of lent. That and my wedding is two weeks after Easter.

Holy cow Miss Blondie and JustlikeHeaven. You both are really ambitous. Good luck! Check back at the 20 day mark and let us know how you’re doing.
Just curious- do you count things like Cheese Nips as crackers and a 100-cal pack of oreos as cookies?
I’m giving up TV Monday-Thursday, since those are the nights I am most likely to just sit in front of the TV and not do anything productive. I’m allowing myself to DVR and watch on weekends, but the no TV thing is more to free up some time on weeknights for reflection and other things to better myself/my life/others.

Soda. It may as well be crack because I’m addicted. So sadly I will say goodbye to soda for Lent. I had my last one last night! ::sniff::

I gave up chocolate last year and it was definitely difficult! But that’s the whole point of it ;]
This year, I’m giving up anything fast food related as well as my addiction to sweets. I started a couple of weeks ago… little by little weaning myself off of these things. The fast food was easy, but the sweets- not so much!!!
