Ok, so thats not entirely true. There were multiple occasions when my parents forced me to eat hot dogs, bologna, and chic nuggets. It was against my will though. But, while i have not been entirely meat free since '83, the Chicago Diner has! My BFF and i went to the new Logan Square location last night, as its just a hop skip and a jump away from both of our apartments.
I indulged in the vegan reuben with sweet potato fries, and was not disappointed. (It was a little messy though - luckily i was there with a very understanding date.
On our walk home (ok, lies. we were walking to a bar to keep drinking) We encountered a homeless gentleman who asked for our leftovers, so of course we obliged. In the end, it worked out well, because i totally would have broken into that takeaway box at the bar - it's just how i roll. So, the universe is doing a good job of stopping me from over eating when i'm not running enough to justify it. Thank you, universe! It's actually the 30 year anniversary of the Chicago Diner, so they are having sweet giveaways all month - I highly recommend you check it out! And call me if you do, as i am right around the corner.
Why am still talking about food, and not talking about running? Stretching is going well, but even if i wanted to run, my neighborhood is an obstacle course of 2 inches of ice covered in 7 inches of snow. The city does not make it safe or easy to run in the winter. I also have MY FIRST DAY OF WORK TODAY. Needless to say, i have been up since 5am choosing an outfit. Where is loop looks when you need her??
Either way, i promise to run soon. As soon as time, biology, and mother nature stop horse-whipping me.
Hopefully i will have an interesting post for you tomorrow. I'm trying people! (Lies - I'm not.)
