Our Sunday night in a nutshell:
Apple fritter bread!
As a big-time fan of apple fritters, the bread called to me and I set out to make it last night. I had no idea how labor-intensive this recipe was until I started.
It was a big pain in the butt to make, but tasted delicious in the end. (If you decide to make it, I had to add nearly an extra 1/2 cup of flour to the bread dough to get it to form into a ball. I also used four large apples instead of six which seemed like plenty.)
On our drive to the gym this morning, I really wasn’t in the mood to work out, but after 20 minutes on the elliptical, my exercise mojo started kicking in and I ended up starting the day with a decent workout.
Ryan and I both use the elliptical warm up trick all the time. When we’re sleepy and not fully awake, mindlessly pedaling away on the elliptical for 10 to 20 minutes wakes us up and gets our blood flowing. I have a hard time arriving at the gym and kicking my butt right away, so easing into a workout is ideal.
Today’s workout included 20 minutes on the elliptical followed by a leg workout that included the following exercises:
I knew my breakfast would include a slice of apple fritter bread, but I tried to amp it up a bit with something higher in protein.
