Muscles and bones and muscles and bones. Must learn all the things!!!!! I’m nervous about my personal trainer written exam for next week. Pretty nervous indeed. But heck, all I can do is study my butt off. This morning I had a treadmill date with my friend Dani. She’s been through the certification process so she was easing my anxiety about the exam. I’m feeling a bit better now.
Speaking of gym dates, it is so good for accountability to schedule workouts with friends. On Monday I went to a Body Flow class by myself but aside that I’m all scheduled up. Working out with someone else always pushes me to do more than I would if I was alone. Today Dani and I walked over 5k on the treadmill and just chatted away. LOVED it .
Somehow bananas came up in the conversation today. We both professed our love for nanners.
At least once a week I meet someone that isn’t eating bananas anymore. Yeah yeah yeah I get that fruit has sugar in it etc etc. But people c’mon. It’s not a chocolate bar. Can we put things into perspective here. Here – here’s a list of all the awesome things bananas do (care of Food Matters).
Bananas are one of my go to foods. I eat about two bananas a day. There’s smoothies and protein pancakes and just chomping down on one straight from the peel.
Am I making sense here / getting this across? Seriously, let’s not cut “real” food out of our diet. Let’s concentrate on cutting processed food from our diet. Let me spin off of Michael Pollan’s advice – EAT REAL FOOD, NOT TOO MUCH. That’s it. Bananas, bananas, bananas. (The only problem I have with bananas is that I can’t grow them myself).
Cause let me tell you something, if I’m not filling my hungry gut with someone as simple as a banana, I’ll grab me some chips.
Okay banana rant over.
