Lenten Promises...

I can't believe how time flies. Ash Wednesday and the Lenten season is coming. Now, I don't go to church nearly as much as I should be. I do want to go more often, but I don't want to take the girls...they would either cry or pick up too many germs =). But, I have been trying to figure out what I want to sacrifice and give up. Every year I seem to give up the same thing...soda or coffee or swearing. I can usually give these things up for the season, but always hop back on the train.

This year is different. Giving up caffeine is NOT an option. I already gave up my every day Starbucks when I quit working. I don't get as much sleep as I need, I need caffeine for my own sanity. I guess that would make it a true sacrifice, but man...I am not that good =)

This year I am going to do something...not give something up (except I am thinking about giving up chocolate too). I am going to start working out, 3 days a week. I am nervous about this because actually getting to the gym has been tough for me. Before the pregnancy, I went all the time...but that was a long time ago. I am nervous, but am hoping to succeed.

So wish me luck...
