We're now one week into the Lenten Season, aka the 40 days and nights before Easter. I decided to give up Coke. Or possibly dark sodas in general, I still haven't decided (but at the moment it is all dark sodas).
This lack of caffeine in my life is reminding me of a time before I knew of my medical problems - also known as he time when I took WAY too many naps to be healthy. Now I've given up Coke for Lent before. However, I was in school and had neighbors, homework, and going to class to distract me from wanting to curl up in bed anywhere from 2:30 to 5 pm. Now I'm unemployed (yes, I have freelance projects to work on but I did some of that today already) and don't have a puppy to take care of like I thought I would to distract me from realizing I need some caffeine to perk me up. It also is not helpful that the weekend after Lent started I went to a wedding, went to a party, lost an hour of sleep thanks to day-lights savings time, and saw Lady Gaga Monday night (which obviously all adds up to less sleep).
I don't mean to sound all complain-y, but wow. Giving up coke three years ago was not this hard. However, Lent is about Sacrifice, so I will push forward. Seven and a half days down, 32 and a half left? I can do this!
What did you give up for Lent?
