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 
Soda 
Starbucks 

for the next 40 days!

Are you giving anything up for Lent?

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!!!

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!
