I can't believe how well I did yesterday. It would have been so easy to just chuck the whole thing until Monday when life slowed down. I am very, very nervous on freeways, particularly I75. I wasn't driving, but it doesn't matter. The traffic weaving in and out of lanes and merging and the myriad of other things to watch for give me a huge headache. I am proud of how I did yesterday. Now today I get the exercise back on track. I am getting ready to head out the door. It's sunny and beautiful out!

It was beautiful out. A bit chilly with a wind coming from the east.
The Easter candy has been out on display since Valentine's day ended. I am a sucker for packaging and was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't have any without going overboard. Chocolate is one of my "must have" foods. The sugar free stuff is good - but way too expensive for a semi-retired person (plus I gave it up for Lent). The real stuff is very hard to limit. Anna gave me some Hershey Cacao reserve bars yesterday. They're pretty good, but they do have sugar in them so I have to be careful. They are dark chocolate so for some reason they don't set off cravings. I decided to make an old favorite that I had forgotten about - chocolate peanut butter cups. I made them in some pretty Easter muffin papers. Ahhhhhh! Life is good.
