Lenten Sacrifice: An Update

I originally thought to give up pop during the week for Lent but I changed my mind. Starting last week, I decided to give up pop in its entirety- well, almost. I like juice and I love water but when I'm eating a meal I need to have something else. So, I am allowing myself Ginger Ale. I gave up all other forms of pop- Diet Coke (which I usually have 2-3 cans of per day), Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, etc.



It's not the most difficult thing in the world to give up but I do drink a lot of pop. So, it does remind me of the reason for Lent during those times when I want to have a Diet Coke, etc. I'm going to try and limit my Ginger Ale to one can per day this week, but we'll see how it goes. I will definitely attempt a week of just water (I did it without food, why not?).
