Let me share with you the burger that kicked off my weekend. I took myself on a date for Portland's Burger Week.  Restaurants all over the city were offering their ridiculous burgers for only 5 dollars, so I had to partake. 



This burger featured 3 buns, a fried egg, and 3 patties.  I didn't even attempt to eat two of the buns and it was still huge. This monstrosity can be found at a place called Tilt, up in the industrial part of north Portland. Gawd, it was fabulous.   



Because of said burger I had to workout a lot this weekend. Okay, I didn't have to but I wanted to. Luckily, Saturday wasn't too hot (it was a little humid by Oregonian standards though), so I took myself on a 45 min. run, which sadly, is one of my long runs. Anything over 30 mins and I get bored. Trying to work through that though. 


Also, do you ever have those weekends where you do a lot of fun stuff, but then don't really document it. I guess it's not really a bad thing at all...Means you were actually enjoying yourself. Anyway, I had one of those weekends. #badblogger #whatever. Got to see a few different college friends that were home from out of state and it was lovely, but I have no photographic proof, minus this coffee from my coffee date with my old college roomie at Stumptown (I don't know what makes their coffee so fabulous, but it was the best soy latte I have had in maybe ever. Magic beans obviously.)

Lastly, did I commit to doing a 60 day Paelo challenge with my friend Anne?! I think I might have. Good thing most of the food in my house already is. Had this strange concoction last night.  Sweet Potato, Apple, Chicken, and green hot sauce, with a splash of honey and cinnamon. Sounds weird, tasted good... Where is Jessi when I need her, going to have to get creative with my meals. 

Overall my weekend was low key and my shenanigans were on point. Now I must attempt to get out of my food coma and get to work.... ugh.

Cheers!

I want a burger right now!

Good luck on the Paleo diet...I have a friend who has been doing it for years now. She has a blog that has some good recipes - http://sleeploveeat.com/. I don't think she has posted for a while but there are still some good ones on there.

Happy Monday!

That burger is monsterous! And you are better than I am... I get bored with runs after about 15 minutes, I can't stand it because I know I can go further, it's just soooo boring haha.

That burger looks like a magical creation of God. And I'm not even a huge burger fan! But, I want it. And I want it now.

You'll have to keep us all posted on your Paleo exploits! I'm super interested... but fear my Greek in-laws would hate if they couldn't "fatten up" their daughter-in-law. That's what they do, y'know.
