I'm currently on Day 11. Been going on runs to keep myself sane and in shape a little bit. Honestly think that since I haven't been eating out that I've actually lost weight during this experience lol. Dat Chipotle diet
With me being sick last week, no beer drinking, and still have yet to eat out in two weeks I’ve already lost 20 pounds lol.

I always thought the salad option from there was pretty healthy. Usually go with a meat, veggies, cheese, pico and guac. Fairly low calorie and carbs. Definitely better than a regular burrito with rice and beans.
Yeah well when I get it I go all out. White rice, black beans, chicken, all salsas, sour cream, cheese, lettuce burrito bowl with chips on the side for maximum dunkage.

It's so so so damn good, but man does it bloat you up lol

Post workout meal: brown rice, extra black beans, double meat, all salsas - double of the corn one, sour cream, cheese, and lettuce haha. No chips though.

If you did not know, you can double I think 3 things for free(minus meat and guac obviously).

As to the thread topic, my brother has a small business and I work for him. We are completely cloud based so we have been working from our respective homes. I don't go out often in the current pandemic because of my mom and dad.

Work out at home, but definitely miss the gym.

Make a costco run once a week and market run once a week. Disinfect everything when I get back from shopping.

Everyday the hospitals acuity goes down. I'm wondering what my acute on chronic CHF/COPDers are doing now , whom usually come in every 2 weeks. Not as many Trauma alerts as people arn't out getting into car wrecks or shooting each other. On a bad note, my Pediatric friends are saying that child abuse is on the rise.

Well damn New Zealand is going into a Nationwide lockdown from midnight tonight, I can't work from home so will be relying on savings and a little handout to get me through.

Gonna be getting a lot of gaming done over the next month!

Wonder how many of the old gyms and restaurants will be left when this settles... can see those markets rocketing when the outbreak ends, but it looks pretty grim right now.

Thanks for the great replies people. Man these are crazy times eh?

Yeah really. I was out for a walk yesterday and discovered a Covid-19 temporary testing station in a car park beside the local doctors office. It was crazy seeing the medics in the full Outbreak style gear taking samples from people. What was more scary was the fact there isn't even 2K people leaving in my town. They must have traced someone back here.

FYI - Washingtonpost.com has made all their coronavirus stories free without a subscription. Normally you'd hit a paywall there pretty quickly, but for this they offer a lot of info for free. In the age of TV network "news" and clickbait, people are still doing actual journalism.

Just read my city had it's first confirmed case yesterday, I'm sure there are more but testing is still so scarce that we really don't have an accurate number of infected. Good news though, I was able to get a 30 roll pack of toilet paper at Ralph's lol
