Double Corn Bread Muffins

Because I drag my butt to the gym very early in the morning, sometimes I find myself dillydallying and being inefficient (i.e. taking an excessive amount of time to stretch, playing around on my ipod, people watching, etc). I’ve found it to be helpful to print workouts from fitsugar (or other online sources) because sometimes when it’s too early for my brain to function properly, it helps to be told exactly what to do!

Here was my elliptical workout for this morning before my spin class (sometimes I left weights before spin, but I find that the elliptical helps warmup my legs before class):

Also, I’ve come to the realization that I sweat more than the average person during physical exercise. It can be 50 degrees outside, and I will still burn up in shorts and a tank when running. For those of you who are like me and perspire a lot when working out, remember it is even more crucial for us to remain hydrated before, during, and after our workout. When too much sweat flushes out of the body, the lost nutrients must get restored in order for muscles to function correctly and for your body to function properly.

Stretching at home after the gym….feeling goood!
Can you tell that I got too excited to wait till they cooled?
Eat them at home with a cup of coffee or take them to-go in a mini zip-lock bag!
My GINORMOUS cup of coffee (only half full) 😉
If you have plenty of extra that you’d like to save, you can freeze them in a ziplock bag or plastic container. When ready to eat, reheat them in the microwave for ~45 seconds-1 minute.
