    well peeps, lent is starting on wednesday. hope im not annoying anyone by mentioning it, as it is a religious topic. but was just wondering if anyone had any plans about what they intended to do or not do over Lent? As im Catholic (but an incredibly bad one) i had thought that i would attend Mass every Sunday over Lent, but i would only be doing it to keep my mum happy, but maybe thats not such a bad thing? Im also going to refrain from any chinese food or KFC food over Lent, my two main weaknesses! although i havent had a chinese since at least 2 weeks before christmas, have started to go off them a bit. sorry im waffling a bit here.....:rolleyes:

    For the last few years I've given up chocolate for Lent and more recently crisps too.
    The first year I did it I carried a big bar of Dairy Milk with me for the whole time!

    That's not such a good one then. I don't drink so there's not much point me saying that!
    I can't really think of anything else I could give up!

    would u think of taking something on, rather than giving something up? like taking on 2 exercise classes a week?

    I already do 5 classes a week and just about to add running to that as well to train for the London 10k in July!
    I'll have to get my thinking cap on!
    I suppose I could aim to keep my house tidy and de-clutter a little bit every day?!
    That would be a BIG challenge! :eek:

    I won't! It's something I've really got to do though, you know, out with the old blah blah blah! Time to move on me thinks and now (or in a few days anyway!) is as good a time as any!
    I'm 30 at Easter so the perfect way to say goodbye to my twenties!
