When I was a kid, i didn't care for lent. my dad always seemed to push me to give stuff up, it became a chore.
Now that i am older i am looking at it as more of a learning experience. A time to be more mindful of what i have in my life and in my actions. This year i am going to give up some of my bad bad habits.
1)No eating in the car while running errands. For some reason when i do errands i crave sugar. I am almost never hungry, but yet i want a snack.
2) mindless eating at work. this is a tough one, but i already started to practice this one so i will be ready for it. so for 40 days no buying junk foods from the vending machines - no buying or bringing pop at work. also no getting danishes from the vender.
3) no snacking after 10pm on weeknights. my plan for succeeding at this is to pack my lunch earlier, and brush my teeth right away after showering.
These 3 items may not seem like big sacrifices, but they will take consistent vigilance and mindfullness.
