40 days and 40 nights.

When I was in college I gave up bagels for lent. This was VERY difficult, seeing that I was a senior, and at least 4 out of 7 days a week I was hungover...and the only cure to my hangovers was an everything bagel with herb cream cheese accompanied by a Milky Way Latte, both from River Road Coffeehouse (and I wondered why I gained the freshman 15 AGAIN as a senior...)! While I didn't think I would make it more than a week with this Lenten semi-fast, I succeeded the entire 40 days and 40 nights! Not only did I make it from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday without eating bagels, but I nearly stopped eating them all together!

Now if that would only happen with my Lenten sacrafice this year...Ice Cream. It is the bane of my existence. And I have given it up both last year and this year....not so successful in the post-Easter time period, but I am hoping that it will stick a bit more this year! Wish me luck!
