Today, Ash Wednesday, is the beginning of Lent. Lent is a time of reflection and prayer, preparing for the Easter celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. I will usually give up one of my vices for the 40 days – a small sacrifice. Since I’ve been trying to eat better and cut down on sugar, I decided that now would be as good a time to give up soda. I’ve already gone a month with very little caffeine, so I’m hoping the excuse of Lent will help me kick the habit.
Day 1 – fasting with only water all day!
