Black Bean Brown Rice Burgers

Saturdays used to be my 'go hard' days and I can't seem to get a workout in at all on weekends. I also stopped working out as soon as I get home after work so I'll be getting back into that.

I started a part time course in January so I'm in class once a week and I've been making the mistake of not working out on Wednesday and then I end up missing Thursday as well since class is…
