Our Lady of Lent : What are you giving up?

Click to Mix and Solve
Morning All,
I am inspired by the emails that I am receiving from y’all telling me what you are giving up and/or adding to your lives during Lent (the 40-day liturgical season that begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes at the Great Vigil of Easter), thus, the above Our Lady of Lent!
Some are giving up …
… adding WALKING to their lives;
… another is honoring herself by giving up “beating myself up for not living according to the rules, whims, and strictures of others-especially when it comes to what I should eat.”
Catholic or not, how might you use this period of time to explore how you might live a healthier lifestyle. Please comment below … how might you live a healthier lifestyle???
AND … Here is a F*R*E*E LINK to Our Lady of Lent: the jigsaw postcard!!! Send to your friends. Soooo much FUN!!! (Thanks! Our Lady!!)

    I am giving up over eating of the sweets and I am adding walking to my day I am also giving up getting up in the middle of the night and going to eat some of the left overs from dinner so far i have be able to do this i am really going to try to keep it going until the end of lent and if i can do it that long I might as well keep doing it.

    I have given up watching TV unless I am exercising. This is a biggie for me as I turn on the set as soon as I get in the kitchen. I have found that I am substituting the computer for my TV, so I have to be on the look out for this. I certainly am getting a lot more enjoyment from music though.

  • Rita

    I gave up all sweets and it really is a sacrifice as the churches in my little town have a lenten service every Wed. and have a light lunch and have the best looking desserts, but I have the will power to pass them up. hope to lose a few pounds

    I have given up potato chips. It’s easier for me to practice portion control with other types of snacks (e.g. tortilla chips) than potato chips which are delicious and less filling for the calories….
    I am also walking more (and praying the rosary when I go for a walk.)
    You don’t have to be Catholic to pray the rosary, by the way. I’m Lutheran but love Mary… and psychic medium John Edward has a book called “Practical Praying” that encourages anyone to pray the rosary and he talks about his friend and fellow psychic who was Jewish who prayed the rosary to get centered….

    I gave up make-up and excessive jewerly. I was finding self worth in things and appearances. God made me how I am if he love’s me just as I am, so should I. I find I have a lot more time in the morning. I get to work on time. If my eyes get weepy, I don’t have to worry about the make up running. I feel natural and not fake. I don’t have a man to impress and I’m older now and can’t keep up with the younger girls in the office no matter how hard I try. This has been liberating in knowing I don’t have to. Make-up and wrinkle cream is way too expensive anyway. I have been noticing the beauty in other things as well. I suppose it might equal the feelings that some women must have had when the bra burning was a fad of the 60’s. I’m a person not a painted face!!
