Have any of you given up anything for Lent? Or giving up anything for a given amount of time to strengthen your mind?  I have given up gluten and dairy for 30 days to lose some weight and get myself a little healthier. But NFL quarterback Cam Newton is going a little further.

This calendar year he is giving up something every month to strengthen his mind.  He gave up fantasy sports leagues for January, and he went vegan for February.  But what did he give up for March??  Click HERE for the video to find out.  He sat down with James Corden of the Late Late Show on CBS.

If you ask me…this is just a bit extreme.  But I suppose if he thinks it makes him mentally stronger…more power to him!
