Lent Sacrifices

It's almost that time of year ... Lent is rapidly approaching with Fat Tuesday on March 8.  What will I give up for Lent this year?  Last year, I didn't give up anything.  I felt (wrongly so in Jesus' eyes, I imagine) that I had already given up so much at that point considering Urban Cowbaby's pre-1 year old personality, his sleeping issues, and my inability to consume dairy products as a result of Urban Cowbaby's dairy intolerance...now, looking back, it doesn't seem like I had given up so much after all.  This year, I resolve to do better and make some sacrifices.  Typically, I give up 1 external thing and 1 internal thing and I plan to do the same this year.  I never reveal my internal thing but I'm happy to reveal my external sacrifice - if only I could decide what it is going to be. 
The list of options include:
- Starbucks
- TV
- 30 min. a day designated for some type of exercise
I thought of a few others but they were lame so this is my official list to choose from.  I think the exercise one would be the most difficult for me.  I guess I'll let you know in about a week.  :-)

You should do the exercise one, b/c you were just saying how you were exhausted & maybe it'll give you more energy?
