|I think I outdid myself...

It's become a standard, once a week run. See's Candy, for dessert... Chipotle's for a mission-style burrito that's incredibly good. (Usually I get two... they re-heat well.) Then Carpinito's (eating the burrito on the way), for veggies for salad. |
But this time, oh my.
I did go a little higher on the candy than normal, because I hoped to reduce how many pieces I ate at a time, and in return, reward myself with more pieces total. 2-3 candies a night for a few nights is better than a single night of five or six, with an increased yearning for more the next day.
And I did only get two burritos, so no problem there.
But Carpinito's? Yi.
Lettuce was 3 heads for $2. I got romaine, red leaf, and bibb.
Cucumbers. Red onion. Red pepper. Carrots. Radishes.
You have to understand, I eat large mixing bowls full of salad in a day, but I still might not eat this before I leave for Oregon on Friday. These heads of lettuce are huge (well, except for the bibb), and I didn't quite realize how much of the other veggie's I'd gotten.
(Oh, and raspberries and blackberries. They're in season now.)
Add that to two days in a row of 1200 calorie workouts on the ellipticals at the gym, and you know, I don't think having a small candy surplus is going to do anything bad to my health. (Plus I took my bike out for a test ride today, half an hour.)
(Oh: The workouts were Thursday and Friday... bicycling was today, just in case someone thought I burned 1200 calories on an elliptical and then rode a bike for half an hour.)
And tonight... Dr. Who. I happened upon the DVDs for Genesis of the Daleks. I never got into Dr. Who when I had a chance, so it's time for me to dig in a bit more, and I figure, what better way to do it than with one of the classics from when I first heard about the show?
