So this blog is not only a diary of my day to day activities but also a journal for my cooking... or my need for massive HELP with cooking. I found this recipe for an amazing sounding smoothie that calls for frozen bananas... So stop reading right there and ask yourself, would YOU know what do if you needed to freeze bananas?? Well, apparently it is not as easy as it sounds. I went to the store and bought extra bananas and popped them into the freezer. In the back - far far back - of my mind I thought, "I wonder how to cut these once they freeze, but I am sure there is a way". Well, 24 hours after putting the bananas in the freezer I called B into the kitchen to tell me what I did wrong... what do you think...
The bunch on the top came out of the freezer. The pretty yellow one has a home in the bowl on the counter. B couldn't stop laugh at how nasty the frozen ones looked. And I had to admit as they began to thaw they only got nastier! Oh well, B's mom came over tonight and I showed her, needless to say I got a crash course in freezing bananas, and now well, I am a pro!
My workout tonight was great! I logged 3 miles on the treadmill at a speedier pace than I have done in a while. So I was very happy with it. My goal for this coming week is to run a minimum of 2 miles every morning before work. I accomplished this goal my first week of my workout routine, but last week allowed myself to sleep in a bit.
I have to keep reminding myself, that getting and staying in shape is a marathon not a sprint, so if I flub up a couple of times, I just need to remind myself that it is okay, I am only human. But not to give in or give up. One day at a time, and occasionally, maybe even one hour at a time. It can be done.
