If you happen to belong to The Edge Fitness Center in Medina, you might have a good reason to work out tomorrow: to burn off the calories from the free Chipotle’s burrito you’ll have for dinner tonight.
Under a special arrangement between the fitness center and the Chipotle’s located almost directly in front of it, the Edge members need only show their membership card to score a free burrito, bowl, tacos or salad when they buy one today (Jan. 25). The offer is valid all day, but only at the Medina Chipotle’s location.
I think my husband and I will indulge in a burrito or burrito bowl tonight for dinner. Who knows what the kids are having…? Considering the sizes of these burritos, I think we could easily have enough to share — if they’re nice to me.
On the Chipotle website (www.chipotle.com), you can tally the calories and other nutritional information for each segment of your dinner (beans are 120 calories, rice is 130 calories, sour cream is 120 calories…). All of that confirms my choice of a carnitas burrito bowl (add 290 calories if you want that tortilla), which is essentially a salad — a really really really good salad.
Do you know how many minutes I have to do on the elliptical machine to burn 290 calories? I don’t want a tortilla that bad.
