    Afternoon snacks (especially (European) Mars bars). And limiting myself to 3 servings of coffee (latte with breakfast, 2 espressi at work).

    The grinding sound the espresso machine in the kitchen here at work makes essentially the sirens song at this point.

    You don't have to necessarily have to give up something for Lent.

    What I'm doing for Lent:

    Daily Morning and Evening Prayers.

    At least one hour of Eucharistic Adoration a week.

    Fasting during daylight.

    Rosary once a week.

    Continuous Novena devotions.

    Observe the no meat Fridays tradition.

    No Soda and Fastfood.

    Volunteering at the Homeless Shelter.


    This doesn't apply on Sundays(mini-Easter)

    Being Confirmed in to the Catholic Church this Easter so I'm making this Lent significant. [face_peace]

    The idea of giving up meat and eating fish needs to be reconsidered. It was once the purpose of that you were giving up a luxury item and eating something austere. Decent fish starts at 12.99 a pound. I bought beef for 2.50 last week.

    I don't think I'm doing it this year. I usually try and then fail, so this time I'm just gonna go on with my life and try to be a little more intentional/thoughtful about things.

    politics and religion. a friend suggested that i should give up lovin' too, but i countered that since one needs to get lovin' to be able to give it up.

    maybe i should give up "not getting any lovin'"...

    They have the Eucharist out on the alter and people come and sit in the presence of Jesus. Most people pray, students sometimes do homework. I hadn't heard of it until 6 years ago so I think it is a newer (to laypeople) form of prayer and service. Some places only do it during lent.

    I'm giving up soda.
