So, Blogger isn't letting me upload pictures. I understand if you never want to come back. I prefer blogs with pictures (I guess I'm simple minded). I'll upload them tomorrow.

Anyways, I made Black bean Burgers for dinner last night and I loved them!! I didn't think I was going to like them that much, but I could have eaten then entire batch. Here's the recipe:

1 can black beans (reserve some liquid), 1 onion, 2 cloves garlic, 1T taco seasoning, 1 egg, 1/2 C bread crumbs, 1/2 C corn, 2 T oil (for cooking).

Combine everything except corn and beans. Mix well. Add beans and corn. Mash until still chunky. If it's too dry, add some of reserved liquid. Let mixture set in fridge for few minutes. Shape into patties and let set in fridge for 15 minutes. Heat large pan over med. high heat and cook patties for about 5 minutes on each side. The burgers will be brown on the outsides.

I added cheese and a little ketchup on the buns. These were prefect!! I can't wait for leftovers tonight!

This morning, I headed to the gym for the last time during this week. I'm taking a couple days off because I have 13 miles on the schedule for Saturday am and I want some fresh legs. Because of the days off, I ran sprints for 4 miles (instead of the normal 3.5). It felt good, but I'm tired. I can't wait to "sleep in" tomorrow.

After the sprints, I headed to the weight section and lifted with my arms and legs and also completed a 20 minute cor workout. All in all, today was a prefect workout. I got nice and sweaty and am tired afterwards. I know I didn't leave any energy to be taken left behind.

Is anyone else having trouble with Blogger today?


  1. Blogger did that to me last week! Only lasted a day though so I hope you're back to posting pics soon.

  2. Those burgers sound delish! I'm totally going to try them :) I haven't tried to upload any pics today, but I have noticed a few other people I follow have mentioned trouble uploading pics. Hopefully they'll figure it out soon!!

  3. I have had trouble with Blogger and uploading photos sporadically lately - so annoying!

  4. I have that problem every now and again too, helps if you switch to edit HTML, instead of "compose" there is a little tab on the upper right of the text screen. I switch over, add my pictures and then go back to compose.

  5. blogger is driving everyone nuts. That recipe looks super easy!! Thanks for posting it : )

  6. Me + Not Blogging = No Trouble! Yay!

    Hope this was helpful.
