Ash Wednesday

Today marks the beginning of Lent. In childhood, I would spend weeks getting ready for Lent, thinking of what I would give up for my Lenten sacrifice. One Lent, I gave up candy. Another, Amy and I gave up TV together. As I got older, I became less disciplined about this.

This year, I've decided to give up my non-fitness. Before Andie was born, I wanted to really try become a runner. So, I'm dedicating 15 minutes every morning to exercising, with the hopes of being fit enough to start running by Easter.

What are you sacrificing for Lent?

I'm giving up lifing my child (and everything else over 10 pounds). Yay for surgery!
