Michelle, our fearless leader for the 12 Month Challenge, has proposed a 40 Day Challenge for the Lenten season.
As a Catholic, I'm familiar with the Lenten season and all that it means. So I decided to sacrifice two things for Lent. One is related to health/diet, and the other is personal.
So for Lent, I'm giving up:
1. Distracted eating. For me, this means eating while watching TV, using the computer or reading a book/magazine. All meals will be eaten at an actual table whenever possible, and I will be fully conscious of my food. Mindless munching on the sofa or at my desk will be eliminated from my life for 40 days.
2. Swearing. I know it's not very ladylike. And, unfortunately, it's one of my worst habits. So I'm giving up all cursing and swearing. No "damn," "shit," "hell," or any other words that would make my mother sigh and roll her eyes.
Those are my Lenten sacrifices. Hopefully, they'll both turn into lifelong habits.
