lent ideas

every year i wish i was more intentional about observing lent. i usually have this conviction a week or so after lent starts, and due to my self-diagnosed ocd, i can't find it in myself to start partway through. so here it is, fat tuesday, and i've remembered to remember lent. now my problem is, what do i do with lent? does anyone out there have any thoughts? are you giving something up? do you have daily lent readings? help me please!

i'm giving up candy, mostly since i've gotten in the bad habit of eating a fair bit of it at work. but, i also like the idea of doing daily readings. i don't have any great suggestions for what to read, though. maybe pick a gospel?
