It’s a scorcher and pool yoga has been rescheduled to tomorrow and I refuse to walk/run today. I did three miles yesterday, but I swear it’s hotter today and I’m just not in the mood. Had a quick work trip to Mt. Pleasant this morning and since I have been back home I have been unmotivated and in a funk and it needs to go away. Maybe I will motivate myself to do a circuit, read as very doubtful but it sounds good. Called roomie on the way home for a suggestion or any idea on what to have for dinner, and I got, “Whatever you fix will be great.” That sounds like a compliment, but when I ask for help, which I seldom do, I need an idea, not a round-about compliment which is only designed for you not to offer any ideas or make a suggestion. We both had the salad from yesterday’s blog for lunch so that is gone and the refrigerator is bare of any more leftovers. Ugh.
I am going to my best friends Mom’s house Friday evening to pick the best blueberries in Lexington County. Mrs. Wilma can grow the biggest and sweetest blueberries I have ever seen. Last year I put five gallons in the freezer and that does not count the gallon I ate while picking. By Saturday morning a making of our favorite Blueberry Muffins, recipe below, will be made.
Well I have talked myself into doing a circuit, but I’m still in a funk and really don’t want to do it. (This is a true life reality show.) One reason I sort of talked myself into it is I have a new WDW Radio podcast I can’t wait to hear; oh and it is good for me physically and mentally. Newsflash so would rather be in Disney right now!
[Update: I did exercise; 20 jumping jacks, 20 squats, 10 push-ups (weakling), 20 mountain climbers, 20 sit-ups, 10 leg lifts, 20 high knee lifts, times 4. I do feel better, only a semi-funk now.]
These are hands-down our favorite blueberry muffins. They are actually very healthy, unlike the big muffins offered in most coffee stores. This recipe is from Uprising, the Whole Grain Bakers’ Book.
¼ cup wheat bran
¼ cup wheat germ
2 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
¾ Tab. baking soda
¾ tsp salt
1/3 cup powdered milk
Combine these ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
1/3 cup canola or safflower oil
2/3 cup honey
1 1/3 cup water
Mix these with dry ingredients. Fold only enough to moisten.
1 ½ cup fresh blueberries
Fold into batter.
- Spoon into greased muffin pans or sprayed muffin liners.
- Bake 25-35 minutes at 350o until toothpick comes out clean from center.
