Hey there friends! How’s your day going so far?
I woke up this morning in a great mood because I am finally getting my hair done today! Woo! My roots are out.of.control.
I waited a bit longer to make an appointment due to the fact that I had to find a new hair stylist. The girl who has been highlighting my hair for the past 2 years just moved.
Gah, so even though I’m excited for my appointment—I’m also nervous. Ah well, it’s just hair, right? Right.
I was feeling like something different for breakfast this morning. So, I whipped up a Luther burger. Just a nice little beef burger topped with a fried egg and bacon and sandwiched between two Krispy Kreme donuts.
Oh my gosh, yeah right! Did you believe me? Is your jaw on the floor?
The reason I introduced this 1500 calorie artery-clogging fat bomb will become clear in a second.
Who is watching the new season of the Biggest Loser? I am! I haven’t watched the first episode yet because I prefer to wait until it’s on demand. <—you know, for the whole no commercials thang! So no spoilers, please.
While I may not agree with everything I see on the show, I still think that it’s inspiring overall. With the obesity rates still on the rise, we need all the motivation and inspiration we can get! In my opinion, seeing that it is possible to lose such a huge amount of weight is one of the most important aspects of the show.
I have to imagine that having 100+ lbs. to lose is extremely daunting and may seem impossible. I mean just having 10-20 lbs. to lose is difficult enough! So in that aspect, Biggest Loser offers hope and stories of success. Which will hopefully serve as the necessary catalyst to get those watching started on the path to health.
The Luther Burger was showcased in the aforementioned article on obesity. In my completely unprofessional opinion, foods like that should be illegal. Banned. Never invented. Ever.
If you want to see more foods similar to (or worse than) the Luther Burger, check out this website. While the name is a bit callous for my liking, the idea is right. It showcases other crazy calorie bomb food combos. Like this pulled pork donut burger. Imagine how crappy you would feel after eating that! Or is that just me?
Moving on, again.
My actual pre-workout breakfast was an iced coffee + a toasted Arnold sandwich thin slathered with almond butter and sliced bananas. Much better, eh?
Well now that I’ve filled my quota for random posts of the day, I’m off to squeeze in a workout!
Discussion: Do you watch Biggest Loser? What do you like/not like about the show?
What do you think about the Luther Burger? Am I being too harsh by saying that it should be illegal?
Just out of curiosity (and completely unrelated—because I’m random like that)—what’s your hair routine? Highlights, full-color, au naturel? I get partial highlights + lowlights in the winter months and just highlights in the summer months.
