I Know a Guy

After the gym Michael and I went to Five Guy’s for lunch! He’s been really good on his diet again this week and since Wednesday he’s been talking about wanting to go to Five Guy’s for lunch on his “Binge Day.” I am not on the diet really anymore, but I am eating a lot of the same foods as Michael (just with added carbs).  I went happily because not only was I famished after my great workout, I was kinda craving a burger too.

Did you know that they post the calorie information on the menu? I just love it when places do that! Michael got the super duper bacon cheeseburger. I got the Little Cheeseburger (still 550 calories but way less than the other option). I got ketchup, mustard, lettuce, grilled onion and relish on it. It was orgasmically good.

It’s been a long time since I had a burger. In fact, I think it might be all the way to March when we were on vacation in Arizona and went to In-n-Out (now that place ruled).

Did you also know that the fries at Five Guy’s are more calories than the burger I got? Now that’s crazy! We skip the fries there. Honestly, they aren’t really needed.

It hit the spot. After lunch Michael and I frantically tried to plant everything I bought before the rain arrived. I bought several jalapeno plants, one sweet orange pepper plant, rosemary, two different kinds of tomato plants, romaine lettuce and some flowers. I consulted a website to find out what things can be planted together and what vegetables should NOT be planted near each other. Good to know this stuff!

Man it was back-breaking work in the yard. Not only did we plant all the veggies, I planted a bunch of flowers in pots on the deck, we pulled weeds and then I started hacking down the huge blackberry bushes that are sprouting up everywhere. There were humongous ones growing inside our Rhody tree. I was drenched in sweat by the time I was done with that task. Who needs a gym when you have a huge yard? Sheesh!

The goal for the next sunny weekend is to plant the following: spinach, onions, cucumber, broccoli, zucchini, thyme, basil, oregano and strawberries for me!

Saturday night’s “Binge Dinner” is homemade pizza again. Check back soon for a post on how to make the perfect pizza!
