It’s Lent, time to give up things

I’m not religious. I went to Christian schools, but the concept of Lent was always a mystery to me and I hadn’t even heard about it until I moved to the UK. I do like the concept of it tho, if only to try out some new habits.

Now Lent is normally about giving up something for 40-something days. This years Lent will end at 2 April and I had a long and hard think about what I wanted to give up, but also to reflect to myself and make things better for myself in the end.

So for Lent 2015 I’m giving up the following:

Restarting the diet: I’m on day 3 now and it feels like I’m mentally ready to do it now. Considering that Lent will give me at least 40 days to keep on track, I can only see myself pushing for 100 days eventually (my ultimate goal).

– Feeling guilty about doing absolutely nothing: I am not the kind of person who can just do ‘nothing’ and be ‘unproductive’, but after some chats on twitter I realized that it’s not making me happier and it is all about my body and mind recovering in some down time.

Spending money on new games when I still have to finish my old ones: I think this is very self explanatory

Giving up bacon would be incredibly hard.

Giving up bacon would be the ultimate lent challenge.

 Are you giving up anything on Lent?
