Okay, now that my traffic rant is over - I'll move on to my next random thought, which is Paleo Banana Bread that rocked my face off. It was the best ever AND flour free, with hardly any fat and no sugar (well there was syrup in there).

Basically, you use almond flour instead of baking flour, and you use some coconut oil instead of regular oil ( but i used some yogurt, some coconut oil), and then i used real maple syrup (thanks Mikey) instead of the honey that the recipe calls for. And I threw in a couple of splenda packets and some crushed walnuts...SO good. It's gluten free and low fat. Almond flour is cheap here and is easy to find, which is a little strange but great - so I've been using it a lot.
Next topic - My work out today.
I woke up at 5 to the sound of a car alarm going off - and couldn't fall back asleep. So, I called Sergio since it was around 9pm for him and it's a treat for him for us to talk at his night time (and a treat for me as well of course). After we talked, I got up, made some coffee and decided to go to the gym. I did a really tough work out on the Total Arc machine (kind of like an elliptical) - the effort ranges from 0-100% resistance. Basically I did the following:
0-3 min - 40% medium incline
4-5 - 70% (quick pace)
5-6 - 60% (quick pace)
6-7 - 50% (quick pace)
7-8 - 40% (medium pace)
8-9 - 35% (slow pace)
Repeat like 8 times.
Then I did a 500m challenge on the row machine. I'm trying to get a time of 2:15 or better - it's tough.
Okay, that's if for today. I'm something good for you coming tomorrow!!
