After such a short month before, March seemed to last fooorever! But I am actually fairly pleased with my spending. I really think if I spent any money on shopping for myself it would have changed the outcome a lot. So hoorah for Lent’s discipline. Also, my tax refund really helped boost my savings and paying off debt. I doubt I will see that much of a networth jump for the rest of the year.

- Workout three times a week – FAIL: I had an average about 2.5 workouts per week. Eh.
