Anyone giving something up for lent?

I'm debating between cheese and chocolate - not sure which one would be more difficult!

i am giving up negativity--thoughts, people around me that are negative, negative gossip, negative behaviors--that hinder my success at being healthy and happy.

Fasting is not a great idea if we're eating healthy (pounds will come back with vengance- sends your metabolism plummeting, sugar levels, etc),
BUT I can limit meat intake and BAN all sweets for LENT. eeek! Oooh my I will survive. 40 days isn't so bad, or is it? :-P

I've got a good diet plan going for me right now that's really working so I'm trying to think of something to give up that won't disrupt that too much.

I'm thinking maybe alcohol. I usually have about 3 glasses of wine a week and an occasional White Russian. It's something I would miss but I don't think giving it up would throw me off my groove.

When does Lent start this year?

Lent starts on Wednesday.

I'm not Christian, but I like the idea of Lent. Although this is not for any religious purpose, I am doing a running program for the next 6 weeks so that I can participate in a 5k race on St. Patrick's Day. This is a big feat, as right now I can barely run a mile on a treadmill, let alone 5k outside!

But, the idea that it is for a fixed period of time is helping! I'd imagine that's what gets people through Lent as well.
