These Shoes Were Made for...

[beach snapshot from august 30th, 2010, chicago, il]

toning. I was talking to my friend, Julia on the phone about my Easy Spirit Anti-Gravity shoes. I bought them because they looked so comfy, with a thick sole. I thought they would make a nice addition to my ridiculously large sneaker collection. They are indeed, very comfortable and they give me about an extra inch of height. She asked me if they really work - if they shape up your legs the way they are advertised to. I responded, "Gosh. I don't know. I didn't buy them for that reason. My legs are plenty toned, I don't need them to be any more toned." (Side effects of my past lives involved with tennis, tae kwon do and the gym.) The next day as I thought about her question, I looked down at my legs. I was quite astonished to discover that these stupid shoes had made my leg muscles a little bigger! I love the shoes. If you are looking for that extra work out for your legs, these are the shoes for you. If you don't want or need any more muscle on your legs, beware!

Mom's Old Recipe MEXICAN Restaurant

I have a thing for chile relleno. I am often disappointed, but not on this night! Mom's Old Recipe Mexican Restaurant 5760 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago delivered a chile relleno that was insanely decadent and delicious. The sauces were absolutely addictive, though I'm guessing, not low cal... I just have to figure out how many miles I have to run before I go back...

What I Read This Summer: BETH LISICK

I read Beth Lisick's hilarious books, Everybody Into the Pool and Helping Me Help Myself. I found myself wanting to read more. I'd like to put my pre-order in now, Ms. Lisick. Write on, Beth!
