Still feeling so tired tonight and I’m really debating about whether to work out or not. I always feel guilty if I skip a day. It’s the obsessive, perfectionist part of my personality. I feel like I have to work out every single day. My typical week involves me working out 5-6 days a week, so I usually do pretty well. My days off usually vary, depending on my mood but I still work out when my body needs it.
Tonight I decided I was in the mood for a bacon cheeseburger. Bacon is one of my favorite foods. If I could get away with eating it every day for every meal, I would. But I don’t think I can afford that much bacon and I don’t think that would be the healthiest thing anyway. Since my headache prevention diet, I discovered a bacon that is nitrate and MSG-free. Honestly, I think it is way tastier than the other stuff.
With my burgers, I usually just throw a heaping dose of onion powder in the meat along with some red pepper to spice it up. I love spicy foods.
Then I just fry the burgers in the pan. One trick I have learned with burgers is not to press them during cooking. That just squeezes out the juicy goodness. So I just let ’em cook a few minutes per side and then they are done. I cooked two of them so that I would have one as leftovers. I love leftovers!
Of course, you can’t forget the cheese . . .
Then I had to fry up some bacon . . . my favorite part. I love the smell of bacon.
I wrapped it up in lettuce like a wrap, low-carb style. With a little mayo, ketchup and mustard, it was good to go. I practically inhaled it and I had to restrain myself from eating the other burger. It was sooo good!
Now I am waiting for my husband to get home from his business trip and still debating the merits of taking today off from exercise or just resting. I am exhausted because I haven’t been sleeping well. I never seem to sleep well when Corey is away. I don’t know if it’s because I stay up too late just because he’s gone or if it’s because I just don’t like sleeping without him. Looking forward to having him home and getting back into our normal routine.
