So Lent officially ended yesterday, which means chocolate was back on the menu! After church as the band was packing up the equipment, the bass player, Eric, asked if I wanted Starbucks. I almost said, “No, I gave up chocolate for Lent,” when I suddenly remembered that Lent was over.
“Yes, a small hot chocolate please.”
A few minutes later I sucked it down – it was delish. Then I enjoyed a couple pieces of chocolate from the Easter Bunny. And now this morning I have another cup of hot cocoa sitting at my desk.
But the best of all? My friend Ace sent me a package a couple weeks ago that was to remain closed until after Easter. Well, I opened it this morning and it is a Twix Bar – limited edition Dark Chocolate version. Mmmmm….dark chocolate.
Of course, here’s where the real “getting fit and losing weight” begins. The past forty days have been dead-easy because chocolate has not been allowed. Now I really have to work at it.
