I ate a freaking banana!

For those of you who know me well, you know I don’t eat fruit (other than berries). Never got into it despite the desperate attempts of my mom and nursery school teachers. It was a hard no…up until this week. I’m trying hard with a new change in jobs to get new habits formed and eating right is part of it. Here is how I did it.

Note: Not the ACTUAL banana that was consumed.
  1. Purchase the banana. Believe it or not, they are usually in the basket NEXT to the cookies and cupcakes. I never noticed this before.
  2. Purchase an effective chaser.  I chose iced green tea.  It is potent enough to wipe even the sweetest of banana taste from your mouth.
  3. Sit near something that smells like you would eat it.  I did this part by accident but I think its what got me through it.   I sat in between a Mexican Restaurant and a movie theater.  Every few minutes I could smell cheesy beans or buttery popcorn.   When I smelled those smells, my tummy rumbled, I closed my eyes, and I took a bite of banana.

I would say it took about 25 minutes for me to get through eating the banana.   It took another minute to find a garbage can for the peel.  Will I do it again?  Its hard to say at this point.  Stranger things have happened.  Earlier this week instead of eating the chips and cookie in my free lunch from Wordcamp – I ate the apple!  WHO AM I?!
