I was doing SOOOOOO good. I've resisted pound cake, and bakery donuts, and Junior mints (in just this week alone). All while completing a class and taking two assessments! Planning a class reunion! And helping to Spring Clean our classroom. Normally, I would be a sugar madhouse right now. But I had abstained from sweets.

Only to be done in by a two, count em', two Lemon heads!!!!

Noooooo, how could I let this happen? My first Lent was going so well.

Perhaps my first "backslide" was when I bought the boys candy for their classes (to celebrate St. Patty's day). And somehow, they all ended up with a few left over and brought them home to me!

Of course Lent would be the one time them bring candy back.

So, after dinner, the OFFENDING SWEETS were sitting on the counter when they caught me eye.

...and before I knew it I had wolfed two deliciously satisfying Lemonheads down.

The Horror!!!

And to add insult to injury, I wasn't even conscious of the fact that I was breaking Lent until a full Glee episode later. I'm back on the wagon...smh

Abstaining is getting more and more difficult, especially since "my spirit is willing, but my flesh is weak".....
