    Sigh.

    I hate coffee but I know you adore it…so I voted for you to give up sugar for Lent. As I can handle drinking iced tea with no sugar and assume “coffee, black with no sugar” may be acceptable? Or you could give up men that is a form of sugar. Sorta.

    I voted for giving up sugar, but that is so hard. I agree it’s like kicking a crack habit. I’ve never used crack, but sugar is another story.

      My migraines went away when I cut out gluten. I had MISERABLE migraines — severe and often. No gluten means no migraines. June should give up gluten for lent.

    I’m with the do something extra crowd. I’m going to do the forty bags of trash or items to donate. Each day take a bag and fill it with either trash to throw away OR fill it with items to donate.

    No. Don’t put trash and donations in the same bag, smart alecks.

      Ooo – I’ve done this several years for Lent. It’s very powerful. I found this to be easy peasy for the first three weeks, and much harder toward the end.
      Pro Tip: each day you get to decide how big the bag is – some days a giant garbage sack, some days a lunch sack. It’s all good!

      I do the 40 bags in 40 days every year. The first year was hard to keep at it, but now I look forward to it. I just packed up 15 boxes of books to sell, so I’m a few days ahead of myself. Next I’ve set my sights on my sewing room…

    Well, definitely don’t give up blogging! Give up something that doesn’t affect the rest of us, will ya’? Geeeeez, June. 🙂 heehee
    What about giving up fast food? Sacrificing trips through the drive-thru will save you calories AND money AND time. Boom!

    Do NOT give up blogging. Giving up cofffee or sugar will make you crabby. So, give up men. I think the suggestion to give up stupid people! A person at work today said they were going to give up giving a f*ck.

    I chose sugar because we should all get off the sugarland express. That stuff is bad for you. I know it and I still succumb to it’s sweet siren call. National Geographic says it triggers the same area of the brain for pleasure and addiction as crack and heroin.

    My Lenten practice is to give up some of my food budget and use it to make little brown bags of goodies for the homeless. It’s easy for me to do without a bit and just throw a bunch of leftovers in a pot and call it soup. I even ask my dental hygienest to save me a bunch of toothpaste samples to throw in the bags.

    It has been eons since I ever really and truly gave up something for Lent! I think just getting older means you must give up a LOT of stuff so giving up anything for Lent would be redundant!

    As my friend Kimberley says, you can always take something on for Lent, like brushing your teeth more often or eating raw carrots instead of Cheetos to accompany your lunch.

    Sugar is bad for you. Coffee is good for you. Men are good or bad, depending on the man. Blogging is GOOD FOR US.

    So that was an easy choice.

    I find it funny that the Catholic Lenten sacrifice has become so trendy.

    Aren’t you already feeling like your life is better when you acknowledge that your experiences have sort of put the “meh” in men? So giving them up would sort of be like me giving up kale smoothies?

    Vending machine food. Is Lenten sacrifice multi-denominational? I guess I thought it was just a Catholic thing but I went to church when it was still in Latin so I missed a lot. Unless I was with my dad’s people, and it was all in Greek. Helpful.

      Yes, very multi-denominational. I’ve gone to church in at least four different — Presbyterian, Episcopal, Disciples of Christ, evangelical student group — and they all recommend it.

      Methodist here and we observe Lent. Our Pastor encouraged us to not only give up something, but to add something, such as time in prayer.
      June, maybe you can give up sugar and add the Tracy Chapman workout.
