Are bananas healthy? A resounding yes!

Since it’s a known fact around my office that I love bananas (so much so that I’ve been called “banana-man”—I dig it), I get asked a lot, “why are bananas healthy?” In short, the benefits of bananas are bountiful. Bananas are an excellent source of energy as well as a reliable source of such vitamins and minerals as potassium and manganese.

Exploring the banana’s nutrition profile will give you greater insights into how much just one banana a day can benefit your health.

Transferring my website from WordPress.com to WordPress.org

wordpress-1810632_1280

Hello!

I’ve decided to take my blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org using Bluehost as my registrar host. While I enjoyed the easy setup wordpress.com offers, their professional and business packages cost too much. Moving my domain to Bluehost and using the open source version of wordpress.org gives me greater customizability and tracking features, allowing me greater control over how I use my website at a much cheaper price.

It’s serious! Taking my blog from the easy-to-host version of wordpress.com to wordpress.org opens up so many doors—I can easily track user information without having to pay additional fees to add widgets and track my SEO scores using Google Analytics. Now I have complete control over of my website.

Taking a look back on 2017 and making plans for 2018

ashley-knedler-75600Shortcomings and Triumphs

In 2017, I overcame a lot of challenges. I moved out, I traveled to Europe, and I made incredible strides in my writing ability—but these were not accomplished without having faced a few challenges. I made a lot of mistakes in 2017 as I’ve made in the past before that, but that’s not to say I haven’t done many things right. Those mistakes have taught me to look forward and continue pushing on. Having learned from my faults, I’ve made adjustments to my previous goals and set a new 12 for this upcoming year.

Last year, I made a few bad investments and I hurt my knee in April running 10 miles on the treadmill, automatically disqualifying me from two of my goals: run a half marathon and a regular marathon. I exacerbated the injury playing basketball and was sidelined for a long time. I was seeing results, but then reinjured the knee in October playing tug-of-war at a work event. I’m receiving physical therapy for my injury, which is good, but I need to be careful and nurse my knee until I’m able to start running again.

Making it up as I go

Short post for my readers! I want to gain 20 pounds by the end of 2018. I currently weigh 165 at 6’0. Today, I ate significantly well even though I didn’t plan my meals—there are a few areas where I can improve, but for the most part, I did very well, having finished my day with 3654 calories.
