Emile and I rarely go out for dinner as of late. We are on a loose budget and we are working hard to make April as Fit as possible. In general, those two things do not mesh well with dining out. After work today, Emile and I met up at the Summit Center for a run. I had already done two – TWO! – bouts of exercise that day for a total of 1 hour and 40 minutes, plus working around the house (painting and sanding, etc). So, then on top of that I went running for 3k.
My shins hurt, I was tired and I simply could not face going home to have a vegetable stir fry with riced cauliflower and meatless crispy tenders. Emile said he would make it, but I wasn’t buying. I wanted to go out for dinner and I had the calories to spare!
I suggested we head to 3 Guys and a Stove. Emile agreed as he hadn’t been there in years. Off we went – but he turned left when he should have turned right. Turns out what I say out loud and what I am thinking are two different things. So, we ended up at Tall Trees instead – because that is what I said – even if it wasn’t what I was thinking.
It was no sacrifice – believe me.
April 20th, 2012 Extra-Ordinary: Some else made me a perfect Filet Mignon with delightfully cooked vegetables. Presumably they even washed up.
