I’m not catholic but I partake in Lent just because lol  I’m giving up being lazy when it comes to going to the gym!  I really want to get in better shape (don’t need to lose any weight just want more muscle :3)

I’m going to go to the gym, and giving up chocolate.  I’m also going to try not to be lazy and just have Pizza on Fridays when we aren’t supposed to eat meat lol

@totheislnds:  Congrats on your big commitment! I’ll be sending you good vibes. I know it will be hard, but you can do it!

We’re not Catholic, although we’re Christians and we believe in the Lenten season of moderation and spiritual discipline. We’re doing the same thing as Steampunk Angel and trying to go to the gym and get back into running. We got into running a couple of years ago, but I got a stress fracture in my foot and we had to stop for a while. We just haven’t found the commitment to make it a regular thing since then, so that’s what we’re working on this season. 🙂

Diet Soda! I guess all soda, really, but I don’t drink regular so I’m not really ‘giving it up’. Hubby is giving up sweet tea.

I’m giving up regular soda. I’m seriously addicted to Dr Pepper and have betwen 1-3 sodas every day. So because I’m a b**** when I give it up totally (so my family tells me) I’m cutting back and only drinking diet Dr Pepper or Dr Pepper 10. It’s going to be sooooo hard!!

Chocolate, mainly, and meat, but since I only recently left 14 years of vegetarianism that one doesn’t really count cuz it’s pretty easy. 🙂

I’m also reading The Screwtape Letters and (since TSL is pretty short) a book on the Hours… last year I started a goal of finishing a religious or spiritual book during Lent and I ended up loving it – it forced me to get through a good book I wouldn’t have probably read otherwise (Thomas Merton’s Seven Storey Mountain) and kept me a lot more mindful than I am by just giving something up!
