Pintester Movement: Bananrama

Smiley I am a fan of the Pintester. I happen to think she is very funny and helps people to not being afraid of making mistakes, since she makes so many herself.  She is doing another round of the Pintester Movement.

She wants people try out pins.  Before she just had us pick out random pins and test them.  I tested coffee hair removal (Fail), ice cream bread (pretty good), and pumpkin muffins (hmm, pumpkiny).  This time she wants us to pick out pins she has tried before and try them ourselves.  I picked two easy two ingredient healthy food pins.

I tried banana pancakes.  Which is really a banana omelet, 2013-07-03 11.38.33I don’t know why they insisted on calling it a pancake, maybe to make it seem more appealing (heh).  The 2 ingredients for these are a banana and 2 eggs.  Although, I also added in cinnamon and vanilla.  They were not bad.  The first time I ever ran into a similar mixture was in a cookbook about how to sneak fruits and veggies into your kids foods.  This was used as a mixture for french toast.  I have to say I like it better for french toast then as a stand alone thing.  Still it was ok.

The next one I tried was for 2 ingredient cookies plus mix-ins.  These called for 2 bananas, 1 cup of oatmeal, and whatever else you have on 2013-07-03 11.36.06 - Copyhand.  I added craisins and coconut flakes.  These are actually really good and easy to make.  I liked them better than the banana omelets.  These actually seem more like cookies to me.  They are definitely worth a try, unless you are staying away from carbs in which case go for the banana omelet.

Another pin I have in the past that I got from the Pintester was 1 2013-07-03 13.51.21ingredient ice cream.  Which is really cold smashed bananas.  When I was a kid I always liked getting the frozen chocolate bananas and these remind me of them, just minus the chocolate.  Although, you could always try to make your own chocolate version, maybe using chocolate syrup.  I haven’t made these lately because I don’t have a food processor or blender right now.  They are a nice cold healthy treat for a hot day.

Fit Fat Ballet: The End and Going Forward

Welp, I have finished Prevention Magazine’s Ballet Boot Camp. I feel like I made progress to becoming

fitter even if I didn’t lose any weight. I have still been doing walking and swimming. Sadly, the other day I while walking I wound up getting a combo of heat and fat rash. One of my friends shared an interesting on how to prevent it. Rub some deodorant on the spots where it is prone to happen. I shall try this next time I go walking after my rash has healed and I’ll let you know if it works.

One thing I really liked about the ballet boot camp was the working out plan which laid out a solid plan for alternating work outs with cardio. I think that it is a plan which I will keep even if I am doing other toning exercises. One I am planning on doing is one from the magazine Cosmopolitan which I just started randomly getting. Also, I have been working on the healthy eating idea and hope to share that with you in a couple of days.

Let me know if you have any ideas about plans I should try next.

Sometimes a banana is just a banana.

 

Fit Fat Ballet Day 15

I really do like this workout and feel like my flexibility has improved even though I still wobble.  I dislike the

sballet-swimwimming exercise.  It looks and feels silly.  I occasionally have to squeeze my workouts into work, and that one would be the one I would be most embarrassed to be seen doing.  It calls for 2 minutes of it.  I usually do a minute of it before switching to another ab workout.  I am looking forward to doing different workouts as sustaining one work out is a bit boring after the first two weeks.  I am still working out to Digster’s dance workout mix on Spotify, although I may make my own mix soon.

Also I would just like to say hello and thank you to my new followers.

One thing I have been planning on doing is to test out some healthy recipes.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to share that project with you soon.

If the chance to workout was a snake, you’d be dead.
