1. No excuses. Watch the video. Figure it out. Something to GIVE UP. Something to START DOING.

2. Add a COMMENT with your NAME, YOUR SACRIFICE, and YOUR ADDITION. So I can pray for you.

3. TELL A FRIEND. Join the INSPIRACY! Find someone to hold you accountable.

As a way to make a statement about our generation, and how selfless we CAN be, I want 100 of us to join the Lent Challenge. Let's Go.

Yeah...I'm giving up cheese. This is tough since I think cheese is supposed to go on everything. Cheese eggs, cheese in your grits, cheeseburger, tacos, cheese on my spaghetti and chili, cheese & crackers, pizza, macaroni & cheese, you want me to keep going? Therefore, in giving up cheese, I'm also not eating a lot of other foods that I don't think I taste good without cheese. LOL. I haven't done Lent in years, but if I can go without cheese for 46 days...I can do ANYTHING!!! :-)

Drinking - everything except the occasional glass of wine...for real...occasional!

Addition: Prayer 3 times per day, Yoga EVERY morning, Reading daily devotion "Pursuit of His Presence" every day.

I seriously need prayer...the first day was a struggle. Love you all, and I'm praying for you all.

Alright, here we go.

For lent this year, I'm giving up Facebook and Twitter for everyday except Saturday (even deleted them from my phone!). I don't write on them a ton but I'm on them ALL THE TIME...for no reason most times. I do, however love to share links to news, music, videos, etc. so not getting to do so is already tough (and this is just the first day!). Plus, I'm only allowing an hour on Sat.

What am I picking up. Writing. I love writing and have made a commitment to becoming better, but have done little about it. So, I'll be writing something (even if it's only a couple of lines) everyday during lent.

Praying for everyone!
