Chicago Day 1

We left for Chicago yesterday with some good friends from our gym. Good thing= they might stop me from eating the whole city. Bad thing=they introduced me to the best popcorn in the world.
Honestly I would tackle someone for a bag of this stuff. It's that good. You're welcome.
We walked all around downtown, checked out Millenium Park, and met up with a friend for some drinks. Dinner was super healthy and low calorie.
But don't worry. We didn't eat much. 
Good thing our friends' body bugs said we walked over 6 miles. That burned it off. Or at least convinced me that I don't care about my healthy diet for a weekend, which in all honesty can be hard to do. My favorite reminder is: one bad meal isn't going to make you fat, just like one healthy one won't make you skinny. I know I can splurge on vacation and go back to my healthy lifestyle on Monday, so I let it go, eat the pizza/popcorn/everything in sight and enjoy it. Life is short. Eat good food. 

Here are some pics from around the city.

That is not my thumb in there. I was not using one hand due to that popcorn.
