Looking at these muffins, I’m utterly craving one again. They’re that good. Just look at the name description! You can’t title something “to die for” if it’s just mediocre. They’ve got to knock your socks off, wipe you off your feet, and make you speechless at the same time.

Have I convinced you to make these blueberry muffins yet?

No? Okay, I’ll keep going.

Look at the rise on these muffin tops! The golden color around the rim! The bright blueberry color ever so slightly bleeding through the muffin liner!

The crumb topping. You guys, THE CRUMB TOPPING.

Great– now my stomach’s growling. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

I’ve recently discovered the magic of YouTube workout videos. It’s so much easier to maintain a workout schedule when you can do it anywhere at your convenience. Plus, there are thousands to choose from. Don’t like a certain trainer? Change it.

I’ve been partial to PopSugarTVFit and BeFit. It may not be much, but it’s certainly enough for me to feel it in my glutes. My DB does Insanity and at first, I thought I’d give it a go before I tried anything else.

It was bad news bears within the first five minutes. I only lasted seven minutes into the warm up before I was lying on the floor with the wind knocked out of me. How in the world do people do Insanity? It’s not only impossible but definitely unsafe… Well, for people that haven’t worked out in ten years, anyways.

I think I’ll stick to my kitchen workouts. Lifting 25 pound bags of flour and sugar is my kind of workout. These blueberry muffins areĀ from AllRecipes.
