I was looking through my Boy Scout Makahiki Book and found a coupon for a Free Whopper with Purchase of a Sandwich Value Meal. We decided to go to Burger King and get it just for fun since we hadn't gone fast food in quite awhile. Art said he could use the calories since he's been training for the Honolulu Marathon again.
It was quite tasty and we enjoyed it. However, as we were leaving the place I happened to notice a big poster listing all the calories, fat, etc. in each item being sold. The Whopper had 660 calories. The medium fries had 400 calories. I don't remember what the unsweetened ice tea had. Probably not much, I would think.
Art said running a mile would burn 100 calories. Since he's probably run 10 miles he's OK. Let's see. I walked a couple blocks. Sigh... Not good.
Wait... wait... I did clean two bathrooms yesterday. I wonder how many calories that burned.
Sigh... I guess it's going to be another good long while before we do fast food again!
