To paraphrase my husband, everybody starts out their blogging adventure with all these great ideas about what to write, and then they end up saying what they had for breakfast.
Well I say, “why wait?” – I’m going to tell you about my new favorite breakfast NOW! Well, not so new: a friend of mine turned me onto this delicious, nutritious (?) Overnight, No-Cook, Refrigerator Oatmeal a couple months ago and I’ve been hooked every since. Although I’m not vegan, I’m not that crazy about milk, so I veganize the recipe by substituting soy yogurt for the greek yogurt , and I use soymilk instead of regular milk. AND since I recently made cranberry-applesauce, I’m using that in place of the jam for now. I don’t add fruit – it’s a mouthfeel thing, I think – but I’m sure that would be tasty. The basic recipe is extremely adaptable; I pretty much follow the Raspberry Vanilla one with some variations. Play w/the add-ins! Enjoy.
Swim: I made it through 3500 yds of masters practice last night. Got out a little early. I’m hoping my shoulder can tolerate shorter workouts more often, better than longer practices less often.
Bike: Wimp that I am, it’s getting too cold for me to ride outdoors, so I’m planning to go to at least a couple spin classes every week. If that fails, I guess I could get on my trainer…

Run: I actually ran yesterday! I might even do it again someday.
