Diana's Famous Semi-Round Banana Muffins

Semi-Round Banana Muffins

Ingredients
1 box banana muffin mix
1 very ripe banana
1 Granny Smith apple
1/3 cup walnuts
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon strawberry preserves

Directions
Mix muffins according to box. Blend in smashed banana, chopped apple, cinnamon, and preserves. Bake and eat hot with a cup of tea. Prepare muffin mix according to the box instructions. Blend in smashed banana, chopped apple, nuts, cinnamon, and preserves. Bake according to the box, and eat hot with a cup of tea.

Why Semi-Round?

The muffin mix comes in a box, which is not a Round shape. By adding Round walnuts (they live in a Round shell), Round bananas (slicing makes perfect circles), Round apples, and preserves from the sliced Round strawberry, the muffins become healthier with all the extra Round ingredients.

4 Ways to Win Over Willpower

Sometimes willpower does not cut the cake when trying to keep yourself from eating foods that are high in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats. Most of the time it helps to have some tricks to call upon!

Here are 4 ways to help keep you on track and away from fat pants:

  1. Remove all high fat-foods from your kitchen and workplace. The idea is to make sure these addictive, unhealthy items are not so easily accessible and stuffed into your mouth.
  2. Make a healthy food shopping list and stick to it. This will keep you from being tempted to buy the array of food-like substances sitting not so innocently on the shelves.
  3. Find ways to lower stress. By doing this you can help eliminate this common trigger of overeating and live a longer and more healthful life.
  4. Stay away from all-you-can-eat buffets and dining eateries that promote endless gluttony. This way you have a fighting chance at avoiding the obvious torture of trying, yet likely failing, to turn away a second, third or forth heaping helping of way too much food.

Before Dieting, Ask Yourself…

Why Oprah overeatsWhy am i overweight?

Everybody has there own answer and no answer is better than another. Know that the answer goes beyond your love of any particular food, such as French fries or ice-cream. Instead, dig deep, write it down,  and investigate what it is about your life that feels unsatisfying, such as a relationship, job, or any unfulfilled aspect of your life. Those answers will lead to why you are masking feelings with food.

Why Oprah wants to lose weightWhy do I want to lose weight?

There are many reasons you may want to lose weight, but it’s the long-term ones that will lead to success. Figure out if you want to just fit into a slinky dress for an upcoming event, or if you want to be fit for life because you care about the health of your body and want to enjoy life to the fullest. If you just want a temporary cuter butt, well that is what you will get. Instead, imagine what you want for the big picture of your life. Otherwise, like a yo-yo or bouncy ball, you will forever be in an unsettling cycle of up and down fitness and fatness, rather than being able to enjoy a stable everyday life of health and happiness.

Why Oprah cannot maintain a healthy weightWhy can’t I maintain a healthy weight?

Unveil any sabotaging tricks you might be playing upon yourself that keep you from maintaining a fit body. Likely there are triggers that quietly send you down an overeating path, and if you don’t identify them prior to starting a healthy diet plan, well, you may never fully enjoy endless days of looking and  feeling slim and fit.

Don’t Be Scared, Be diet  Prepared!

Prepare yourself for diet success by finding your own personal answers, and then plaster them in your mind like syrup on pancakes! Post them on your bathroom mirror, tell your family and friends, and feel the freedom from within that comes with accepting your dieting foibles. Allow yourself to be the healthy person who fits easily into your dream-size jeans–and hold onto those thoughts—everyday–as if your life depends upon it–which it does.

Once you are prepared with your answers, start eating healthy and getting the exercise your body deserves! Your every cell will love you for it!

5 Musts-Do’s If You Want Abs

1–Eat less! The truth is–abs happen in the kitchen. The trick is to eat fewer calories. You will then lose body fat, which will reveal the abs you likely already have. So eat smaller portions, and eat as healthy and Round as possible.

2–Do aerobics! This is all to burn fat, to remove it from your abs. Aerobics means any exercise or activity that gets you sweaty, like running, jogging, skating, swimming, and rebounding, jumping–20 to 60 minutes a day–5 or 6 days a week.

3–Eat whole foods! These are natural real foods, rather than processed foods that come in a box or gab. The best way to eat whole foods is to only eat what you prepare. Grocery shop healthfully, and then get in your kitchen–fake foods not allowed!

4–Get a spray tan and a bikini! If you are on a quest for abs, you are likely going to want to show them off–so heads up. A tan will bring out your abs and your muscles in general, all by adding that finishing touch on your fit body. If you do tan it up in a swim suit–take a picture!

5–Stand up straight! Remember to also suck it in. This will lengthen and strengthen your body–especially around your abs. It will give you energy and make you feel in charge of your body. You are likely to feel happier and stronger, so you may need to find something else to complain about in the future.
