So I have this tendency, now and again, to get lunch from someplace (usually Panera), and then after I'm done eating, I'll look up the calories and fat content on their website for the items I just shoved down my gullet.
MOST of the time, I look before I go.
But there are days, here and there, where I head out without a specific agenda. Today is such a beautiful day, I left the office to enjoy it a bit, and to go check out the sale at JC Penney, since we need some linens and bed coverings and things, and saw that it was just as awesome as I expected it to be. And then when I was done there, I thought about lunch.
Get a salad at the grocery store? Nah...not in the mood to deal with the salad bar today.
Mini-pizza from Schlotskys? Nah...no reason. Just, no.
And then I thought, "OOH! Panera! Totally in the mood for them to make a salad for me." And went there.
They do have the calories for a lot of their items actually printed on the menu board now, I noticed. That was interesting. But I didn't notice it until I'd already begun ordering. So I looked up my calories just now, and I made a decent choice, really. (If I hadn't also eaten the hunk of bread that I chose as my side item. ::slaps back of own hand::)
Anyway, why do I do that? I guess I know now that I should take a walk this afternoon to help burn a few extra calories, right? ::sigh::
