Uh, I did the math wrong. Still, 83.5% success rate. To make amends, I'm going to stay in my calorie goal for the week following easter sunday. Whatsmore, I think I'm finding it's harder and harder for me to go over without feeling terribly guilty (I also am not able to let myself "forget" to put on sparkpeople either!) so hopefully I will stick with this for the longhaul.

So how did everyone end up?

The no alcohol, I stuck with just fine.

As far as calories, I went over 7 times (usually by 150 cal. or less) between Feb 19 (a few days before Ash Weds) and today (Easter.)

So for that, I will stay in my calories every single day between today and next sunday to make "amends" for going over. Still, 7 times out of about 75 days, isn't too bad. That's, what, like a 90% success rate? :)

So far, so good! Been at or below my calorie goals every single day of Lent (funny to see all the red spikes throught February taper off!), and not a drop to drink since Jan. 25.

I haven't even had a sip of coffee. The caffeine headache was AWFUL for the first two days, but now I'm passed that and doing fine.

how's everyone doing?

on the candy front I seem to be doing OK. Of course, "candy" doesn't include chocolate or ice cream...so really...

anyways, there you have it.

Way to go! And yes, if you TELL PEOPLE what you're doing, they usually like to be considerate of that. :) I am on the low range of my calories today, and that's taking into account having a "snack" of green tea and splenda. Of course I'd like some cookies or granola bar instead, but since I didn't do the gym today, I don't want to be on the high end of my range.

This is my 2nd day in a row that I've not gone over (WAY OVER) in my calories, which I've done almost every day of the month. It's almost like starting over. Hope I can keep at it!

Tell your roommate to help you! If you get your roomie on board, then she won't be shoving temptation in your face.

Unless they are a mean roomie and want to torment you...LOL! Hope not!

I did great today. Passed the dessert table twice and my roommate considered us getting brownies covered in peanut butter. I said "nahhh" but I'm sure it will get harder next time. I would completely avoid that entire section if it weren't for the coffee.

It is over on Easter Sunday. That is why we get Easter baskets! :)

My mom always gives me girlscout cookies - I'm gonna ask her for boxes of those 100-calorie packs instead.

The caf dessert table. Filled with all kinds of cookies, brownies, blondies, cakes, and pies. I'm going to give up mindlessly grabbing anything from there to eat as I walk out of the caf.

I'm in! I'm giving up alcohol (I actually started this on Jan. 25 and intended it just to be till the end of February, but I've decided to give it up for Lent.)

My Mom also always made us "do something" in addition to "giving up" something, so my "do something" will be to stay in my calorie range every single day of Lent. This will be rough because I've really slacked off through most of February.

Oh, that's a great idea!!! What should I give up? Hmmm.....*puts hand on heart* I will not drink coffee for 40 days.

I guess I'd better stock up on aspirin for the cold-turkey phase. LOL!!
