So when I brought up the idea of giving up soda for Lent to Robb he laughed and said I can’t give up soda for Lent because we don’t celebrate it. I said okay I will give it up for Lint. We have a lot of that. So I have a question for you all, is it wrong to give something up for Lent if you don’t understand or celebrate the religious reasons that surround it? I hope no one is offended by my trying to better myself with this.
In my quest to obtain my #7daychip I have been trying to up my water intake. I figure perhaps the best way to up my water intake is to get rid of the other things that I drink. Mainly my diet soda. I am not giving it up for good. I like the bubbles too much. I also am not swapping it for regular soda, I cannot stomach the taste of it.
So I am about to embark on a VERY difficult journey for me. I know my headaches will go on for longer than they should because I will not be able to reach for a soda to ease them. I know my standing order at Trivia night will have to be halted as I wont be downing Diet Coke’s one after another. I am looking at this as a chance for my body to perhaps detox, maybe? We shall see what I can do. This is not a punishment but a gift to my body.
So there we have it! I am about to try something I have not done before. Will you be giving anything up for Lent? or in the case of our non-traditional house Lint?
