Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the time in the Catholic Church when you give up something or do something for Lent.
I look forward to Lent because for some reason I seem to stick to whatever I say I'm going to do. Of course I do have a few loop holes. I can still eat donuts and only have to do what ever I picked for 6 out of 7 days. The fact that I know it will end at some point makes it easier and I do pick up some good habits. One year I gave up red meat. To this day I still eat less. Another year I gave up smoking, still don't smoke.
This year I'm giving up all snacks except cereal or fruit while watching TV (that is my worst time for mindless eating), I'll read my bible more and will floss more often.
That sounds like a good start
