Three Things Thursday

1) I tried to make a healthy version of chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies.  The healthy version had no added sugar or butter.  The healthy version also did not taste nearly as good.  One of the ingredients was unsweetened almond milk. I bought way more than I needed, so I decided to add it to my fruit smoothies instead of water.  YUM!  So much richer in taste, and theoretically good for me too.  So something good came out of the experiment after all.

2) I've tried out all three of my insoles enough to have an opinion. Here's the short version. The Sole Softec are too hard.  The Sof Sole Airr Orthotics are too soft.  But the Superfeet Berry are just right.  Unfortunately the Superfeet Berry are also ~$40 a pair.

3) I rode my bike for a total of 42.9 miles last week (8.3, 8.1, & 26.5 mi rides).  So far so good.  My foot seems to be okay with it. Planning to ride with Husband tomorrow while we're both off for the Independence Day holiday.  Looks like we should have a nice day for it.


  1. The vanilla and chocolate almond milks are really good too!

    1. I'll try the vanilla. chocolate doesn't sound that good to me. hahahah

  2. Glad your foot is behaving. Mine is too. Actually, my last couple of runs and yoga classes have been 90% pain free. I'm thinking of uncrossing my fingers and toes.

  3. I always complain about how much my insoles cost. Someone pointed out that if they work, how much am I saving in not having to go to the doctor? So I try to justify it that way (although it still hurts when my running shoes hit the $200 mark because of the insoles).
