3 Things I Am Giving Up

While I am not super religious. I thought it would be awesome to give something up for Lent this year. I mean it is only 40 days and they say once you do something for 21 it becomes a habit. 

I started thinking what I wanted to give up this year. Immediately came up going out to eat. This includes all friend's lunches and dinners when I get lazy. If I ain't cooking it - I ain't eating it for 40 days. Also, I think this will help save some money in the bank too. 

So I went to sleep on that Tuesday night and woke up Wednesday and thought maybe I will give up a few more things for lent. 

I want to say goodbye to soda. It is only 40 days and I feel like if I do it for this than I can kick the habit for good. 

Than I started to think what other addictions do I have that I could kick for 40 days.. you guessed it. Starbucks! I will no longer be getting Starbucks either. Just think how much money am I going to save over the next 40 days kicking these small 3 things? 

So even though I am not religious and I want to make it a habit but I need some pushing, I will be giving up 

Going Out To Eat 

for the next 40 days!

Are you giving anything up for Lent?


  1. oooh, the going out to eat thing would be hard, ha! You will feel a lot better if you quit the soda!

  2. Good for you! I gave up soda one year and felt amazing!

  3. My husband and I have been off soda for over a year ... its amazing the effects and the new experiences you get to have. For example, I absolutely love authentic Thai Iced Tea, something I never would have tried had I still been stuck on soda. Good luck, and stay strong!!!

  4. I am not sure why blogger or bloglovin doesn't tell me when you've posted. I thought you weren't blogging anymore. What the? Ugh, I feel like I've missed out on so much!! Miss you!

    I am not really giving up anything for Lent but I am trying to do more of things. I posted a blog about Radiating Love for the next 40 days. I think it's a pretty good idea! :) GOOD LUCK!
