Lent Starts Today?

   So I definitely forgot Lent starts today. I rarely give up anything for lent and when I do, I usually don't follow through with it. Recently, I've started trying to eat healthier and stuff and am working on trying to not drink as much soda. About a month (give or take) ago, I started going back to only drinking soda when I ate out. But I'm also going to start limiting my tea intake as well. Anyways, I figure I might as well just give up soda completely for lent.
   Starting today until Lent ends on April 2nd (April 2nd right? I don't know, I Googled it.), I will not drink any soda at all.
   Are you giving up anything for lent this year?
