This Weekend: Five Guys Burgers & Fries

Yesterday we decided to try out the new Five Guys restaurant in Leeds. I've never been before but I'm now fully converted! I opted for a cheeseburger with fried onions and I think it might be the best burger I've ever eaten. I learnt from their website that there are no freezers on any Five Guys premises and they use fresh meat every day, which must be what contributes to the amazing taste. Burger heaven. It is quite pricey but definitely worth it, and all the burgers come in 'little' size too which is a cheaper option. Plus, the whole range of toppings is free and you can add as many as you want.

This week has been quite a good one all round! I've managed to find lots of time for reading, scheduled 6 whole blog posts, had a really positive one-to-one meeting with my supervisor at work, and went to see The Imitation Game with my mum and sister. I'm a massive history nerd so I love anything like that, and it was really interesting to learn about Alan Turing and his work breaking the Enigma code during WW2. I recommend it!

I've also started a monthly membership with a local leisure centre to use the pool. It's costing me £17 a month to go as often as I like, and I'm hoping to go around 2-3 times a week. Good value, and I love swimming so I think I'll get a lot out of it! One of my goals for this year is to keep to an exercise routine alongside trying to eat healthier. In the past I've put a lot of pressure on myself to eat only certain things, restricted myself too much and ended up making myself pretty miserable, so this year I've decided to just try and make sensible choices about food during the week and not beat myself up about it at weekends. I'm hoping that doing this along with swimming regularly will help me to finally see some change in how I feel about myself.

Hope you've all had a good week! Until next time, I'll leave you with this article about the best, worst, and weirdest life lessons to be learned from Disney movies... Just one of the things I read on the web this week!


  1. I hope you watched this video before going to Five Guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcJFdCmN98s

    Haha :) x

  2. I've still not tried Five Guys but everyone who has GUSHES about it so I'll need to add it to my 'to be eaten' list!

    I'm happy to hear you had a good week - I love when the week draws to a close and you feel so positive about it. I'm especially impressed you managed to schedule six whole blog posts!

    I'd also like to start eating better and exercising more - I'm yet to find a class near me that I'm interested in, but I bought tickets to my first roller disco today, so maybe this will be my next hobby?!



Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I read and appreciate every single one!
