chocolate-covered cherries

I felt like having oatmeal this morning.

I should have photographed it BEFORE I mixed it all up, but I hadn’t been planning on blogging about it until Andrew urged me to.  So, instead of being pretty, it looks like brown mush.  But it was good!

I used instant oats (I know, I know, not my favorite, but I have a bag of them here in the hotel and I want to use them up!), half a banana, a few frozen cherries, 1 tbsp chocolate chips, 1/2 tbsp flaxseed meal, slivered almonds and a splash of milk.

I knew I was going to swim today, so I wanted something that would fill me up, and I just wasn’t in the mood for a smoothie and toast.

For my first time back in the pool, I did a simple “build” workout: a 100, 200, 300, 400 and then a 500-yd swim.  That adds up to 1,500 yds, which is just shy of a 1-mile swim.  I took it nice and slowly; it took about a half-hour.  It was nice to be back in the pool; there is just something about putting on goggles and blocking out the rest of the world for awhile.  I feel good and am looking forward to future pool workouts.

Happy Monday everyone!
