    How long did it take to swim 1500?

    I admire those that swim. I was not able to learn to swim where I grew up, so I’m way behind the curve. I’m hoping to learn when I get back to the states from my overseas work. 🙂 That orange smoothie looks good.

    I am starting to think your obsessed with pb and nut butters. 🙂
    Orange juice and PB? That makes me think orange juice and toothpaste. LOL

      haha – I am! I’m a firm believe that PB goes with everything, including orange juice. 🙂

    Such a cute picture! The idea of orange and peanut butter does sound a tiny bit strange to me… but I bet it gives a little more staying power.

      Have you ever tried dipping orange slices in peanut butter? It’s one of my favorite snacks. Try it!

    That swim makes me want to get back into the pool, and if it wasn’t 20 degrees here I’d be all over it 😉 OJ in smoothies is awesome. I also do OJ with vanilla protein powder and frozen strawberries and raspberries. Fruity and delish!

    Haha 1500 yards would pretty much be the whole workout for me! But I’ve only swam twice in 2 years… And I’ve actually never had nor seen a creamsicle! Sounds good though

    Ha! I cannot count swim laps at all! I try and try, but I end up getting confused every time. It blows my mind when people can report how many laps they swam…I just have to go by how many minutes, because I can’t figure out how many laps I actually swam!

      I learned that it helps to mentally sing the lap numbers, but I agree that it’s a pain to remember them as you flip over and over again.

    I’m surprised you’ve never swam 1500 straight. Much like a run, it’s a great opportunity to zone out and focus on your stroke and breathing. And I’ve never gotten dizzy in the pool…not even sure how that is possible! Maybe it was that orange + PB combo. 🙂 Not going to lie, that sounds like one disgusting combo. But if your palette likes it, I guess go for it?

      I’ve swam 1500 straight in open water, but never in a 25 yard pool. The back and forth and constant flipping was what made me feel slightly dizzy (or maybe I was just bored and ready to be done?). I wouldn’t knock the orange and pb combo until you try it. It was actually a good friend who introduced me to the snack of orange slices dipped in peanut butter and I thought she was a genius the first time I tried it. That was also what made me a believe that peanut butter can really go on anything.

        You were swimming in a 25yd pool? That would make it 60 laps…

      • Meghann
        February 13, 2013

        That would be 60 lengths. A length is from one end of the pool to the other, a lap is when you end up back where you started (i.e. go to one end, flip, and head back to the other side).

    Peanut butter with ANYTHING sounds good. The smoothie sounds awesome, can’t wait to try it.

    Question- do you still use PB2? I started buying mine online (the bulk package was around 10 and has almost 5x as much as the jar) and love how it dissolves into a smoothie. I don’t really ever use it on sandwiches, etc. but in smoothies it’s so good.

    • Meghann

      I use it on occasion. It’s funny, I’m actually not a big fan of adding it to my smoothies, I find the flavor isn’t as strong as regular ole peanut butter. I prefer PB2 with apple slices or drizzled on pancakes.
