Oh, the new things that I learn every day. It seems like every day the rules change about bananas, apples, chocolate, and the list can go on and on. I’m sick of it! I remember a time that eating bananas were said to be suitable for the digestive system and a great source of potassium. ￼In 2002 I was on the road to regaining my pre-baby body back, and I worked out like a mad woman as well as having a strict diet. Bananas were my go-to source for muscle recovery and helped me stay full for a lengthy amount of time during and after my workout. I was able to go from 175 pounds to 155 and I felt amazing. No muscle cramping, no headaches, my energy level was high and I felt amazing internally as well as externally.
I remember how excited I was when I read that 1 banana is sufficient enough to sustain a 90-minute workout. Because before I learned that I was eating an apple and that did nothing for me. I would feel light headed halfway through my workout and feel like quitting. Let’s face it what are we accomplishing if we are too weak and hungry to complete a workout. Nutrition is everything and without it working out is a waste of time.
Now lets fast forward to 2019. I have read an endless amount of articles stating that bananas are a leading factor in causing belly fat, and they are 25% sugar. They should never be eaten alone but coupled with bacon or oatmeal and black coffee. So here I am thinking I do not have time for all that. I personally need something quick and easy to get me out the door in a timely manner. I workout first thing in the morning so that I can get home, shower and start writing and visiting my clients. I NEED A QUICK ROUTINE and these articles are ruining my life!!!!
So I decided to shut out all the noise and do what works best for my body and that’s eating bananas twice a day. Either I blend them in smoothies or eat’em as I’m walking out the door. I’m doing what works for me and eating everything in moderation without rules and I couldn’t be happier.
Focusing on the benefits and nothing else. Here are a few.
- Bananas Contain Nutrients That Moderate Blood Sugar Levels
- May Improve Digestive Health
- May aid weight loss
- Contains powerful antioxidants
- Helps you feel more full
- Improves insulin sensitivity
- Improves kidney health

I woke up today feeling like Bruce Lee! I am ready to power kick and jab my way through life. I have been idle for too long, and I am taking back control today. You see I have the tendency to over think situations, and I do it until I talk myself right out of a good idea. I have literally done that ever since I had children.

Let me start off by saying I have been married for 18 almost 19 years. Therefore I’ve been out of the dating world for quite some time. But I do have a large number of single friends, and I read a lot about how extremely hard it is to date. My single girlfriends are telling me that they’re having a difficult time finding a man worth wild. My first question to them is how do you view yourself? The second question is, are you approachable?
Let’s Figure This Out Continue reading “Sis Trust Me You Can Find A Man”
Have you ever just woke up grumpy and you knew that you needed to avoid everyone and just stay home? Oh, that’s SO me today. I think I overtrained yesterday and today I’m sore, cranky and just waiting for somebody to say the wrong thing. Everything someone says to me I snap and I can’t help it. I feel pressure in my head and like a dark cloud over me. I try so hard to remain positive, but some days, I fail.
Is it okay to be stuck in your zone? How about if it’s a positive zone? I have to admit that this is who I am. I rarely make plans because I dislike stepping out of my norm unless it involves traveling. Now that’s a different story altogether. If plans include making money and or seeing the world, other than that I am good to be left alone.
All we want is to be seen and heard. You may not agree with everything we are saying and that’s okay just acknowledge that fact that we are here. Some so many ladies will go through their entire life and not know what it’s like to be listened to. As well as being left to wonder if they are being seen or looked over. Yeah, you have said the L word but what does that mean without putting actions behind it.
On Sunday morning I woke up washed my face, brushed my teeth, threw on some workout clothes, attempted to comb my hair and gave up really quickly, grabbed my cycle shoes and ran out the door. You see If I am working out early in the weekend then I need to stay focused and run out the door or, I will start folding laundry, putting dishes away, and start running my mouth talking a mile a minute ton, my husband. Which, he hears every other word if that. Continue reading “I Cheated The Whole Day”
How many times have you heard someone say that stress can kill you? I have heard that too many times and I’ve lost count. I was always thought that it was dumbest expression and even to this day I don’t like saying it. I know I don’t like repeating it because it was always stated without an educated explanation. However, over the years, I have dedicated my life to helping people lose weight and in some cases gain weight. Throughout both journeys trials and tribulations will come and you have to learn how to properly handle each one in order to live well. Continue reading “The Best Revenge Is Living Well”
