I feel like I have been advertising giveaways a lot in my blogs lately. But when your favorite blogs that you follow like it’s your job have giveaways how can you not? On a side note-blog reading would be the most fabulous job. You could get one of those desk treadmills and get your exercise in while blogging.
Jaimie@FoodinRealLifeis having a cook book giveaway. A lot of the recipes are made from similar ingredients and using similar methods. It seems so easy and for people who are afraid of change and need to follow a routine (like me.) While you’re there check out her blog because you’ll begin to follow it like it’s your job too!
Since this is the distance swimmer “bonus practice,” of the week it is a little shorter. By bonus, I mean distance swimmers have to do an extra practice on top of everyone else so this is our practice of extra yards.

Today marks the first day in a good old while that I did not have pancakes for breakfast. Pancakes have always been my staple food and not having them makes me extremely uncomfortable. Breaking out of that is a big step for me. Which sounds pretty silly when I type it all out.
I had made up my mind yesterday that I wasn’t going to have pancakes, waffles, or French toast for breakfast today. Today I am pleased to announce that I stuck to a rather simple breakfast and made 3 overeasy eggs, ½ cup egg whites, toast and grilled tomato. I normally have about 400 calories for breakfast of pancakes so I tried to have roughly the same amount. This really made me forget how much I do love eggs. I didn’t know where to start there was so much food on the plate for 400 calories.
When I lived in England, grilled tomato was included in any breakfast and I absolutely love it. If you have never tried it, I highly recommend it. So get your George foreman and grill up some tomatoes.
Here is the second pool workout of the day:

As you can see-I’m alive and well and didn’t have pancakes.
What did you have for breakfast today?
