Knock on wood...went over in calories two nights in a row...do okay until late at night, then binge. Grrr.

Will tack those day I go over to the end of the challenge, and go beyond the end of it by however many days.

So far so good for me. I have been in my calorie range all but 1 day in the last week.

I guess the holiday-themed challenges seem to work for me - Catholic guilt dies hard!

3 of the last 4 days, I ate within my calorie range. Trying to get a jumpstart on this Advent challenge since the November one didn't go so well. emoticon

Well, after 36 hours, I freakin blew it! Pigged out on kettle chips and snickers after the gym. Hopefully it will be out of my system by the time the challenge really starts!

Alcohol seems to be my other big dieting downfall this time of year with all the holiday parties and such. I usually stick with wine anyway, it seems like the best option if you are trying to behave yourself.

Good ones! I need to come up with some specific goals. Will try to do that by Saturday.

The good news is, though, that since posting this thread, I *have* stayed on track with my calories. Granted, that's only 1 day, but that's better than I've done in months!

Okay, I'll bite. One of my big issues is this time of year my workplace gets overloaded with a ton of chocolate. I'm not especially tempted by other types of candy, but I do love chocolate. So I feel like I need to make an extra strong effort to combat the temptation to go astray the next few weeks.

My goals will be:

- Go to the gym 4 days a week.
- Limit myself to one piece of chocolate a day
- Keep my kitchen free of unhealthy food.
- Limit alcohol consumption to 2 days a week and alternate drinks with water.

Taking a cue from the success of 2007's Lenten Challenge (sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_
thread.asp?imboard=828&isboard=0&impar
ent=5008951
), I'd like to propose an Advent Challenge for the Month of December.

Advent technically starts on December 2nd, but we can consider it early for our purposes, beginning December 1 and lasting through the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6. That should hopefully get us through Christmas Day and New Year overeating, and put us well on our way to our 2008 goals.

Unlike past challenges, I'm not going to bother posting daily challenges.

Instead, try to come up with a few dedicated goals for yourself, determine the frequency (if cooking, working out, etc) and post them, then follow through by checking in.

Though this is a challenge associated with a Christian holiday, rest-assured that it is non-religious in nature and is open to everyone, Christian, atheist, and otherwise!
