I'm trying to think of some "suffering" I could do.

Some call it penance ~ suffering is good to tho :-)

This year my plan is to eat meat no more than once a day and none at all for sure on Fridays - I LOVE meat! I will pray the short way of the cross every day from my Pieta booklet and meditate on Christ's passion and suffering for my own particular "theme" this lent. No music on the radio and whatever other little pleasures I usually indulge myself in, I will try to remember to give up - at first for lent and hopefully for good - For God.
