last night, we took a walk.
san antonio is not a very "walkable" city
...especially not where we live...
but we live across the street (practically)
from a Cracker Barrel
so we braved it and hit the pavement
an excellent choice, it was.
we had an interesting discussion about how walking to/from restaurants
makes you think about how much you're eating
because it's incredibly unpleasant to walk home after stuffing yourself to the gills
(believe me. i know. i did this more than once in Chicago.)
so i had to pump the brakes on my Country Fried Steak
with mashed potatoes
and broccoli and cheese casserole
and turnip greens
and bring some home in a doggy bag.
is the walkability of a city inversely proportional to its rate of obesity?
for more reasons than one?
