In the past I have not taken Lent seriously. I made commitments to myself but never pubilicized them so that if I failed no one would know. This year I am taking it more seriously. And I am putting it out their so that I will be held accountable. (Hint, hint all my friends!!!) However, I do want to be realistic so my goals are reasonable for me and will lead me to a healthier lifestyle.

So this year I am giving up:
1. Sodas...I am allowing myself 1 per day and that is it.
2. Sleeping in. I am getting up during the week before my husband leaves for work. On Saturday I will get up before 8am. Sunday's I already get up early to get ready for church. (This little bit of extra time will give me time for my morning devotions.)

I am committing to:
1. Walk at least 10 minutes per day.
2. Eat at least 1 fruit per day.

I just want to say that I made these decisions over the last couple of days and wouldn't you know it...it is raining today. I will have to find someway and somewhere to walk those 10 minutes.

Please help hold me accountable!!!
