the ice cream diet

Michael is genuis. Last night he came up with the best “diet” plan I’ve ever come across and you get to eat ice cream. So, what’s the catch? The catch is you have to work for your dessert! He decided it would be really fun to map out our house (the brown dot below) and some of our favorite ice cream shops in San Francisco. He assumed that one scoop of ice cream  = 180 calories and calculated how many scoops you can get per round trip biking, or walking. We’ve actually walked to Swensen’s Ice Cream before because it was one of our favorite places to treat ourselves when we were in Russian Hill. How I adore Swiss Orange Chip! We’ve biked across the city for meatballs at Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack but never for ice cream. If you read my last post, you may have seen my declaration of love for ice cream too. Now that we have this handy little map, our ice cream excursions will be a little less of a guilty pleasure and lot more rewarding. I kind of love his seemingly pointless graphic fun, thanks love!
