Thanks for all your comments and emails. To answer a few of the questions…Diana’s Bananas available in the ice-cream freezer at Publix-they actually say “Banana Babies” on the box…stuffed mushroom recipe I got by watching a video on the net, just google “hippy gourmet makes stuffed mushrooms”…when are Silver Sneakers classes coming to Tamarac Fitness Center? I thought they would have started already, but apparently there hasn’t been enough demand for classes-if you are a member, feel free to ask Ron. If you are not and have the benefit as part of your medicare plan, call Ron at 954 726 1070. I do (and have for the past 30 years) have senior friendly classes Monday and Wednesday mornings at 8:30. As for Silver Sneakers specific classes, they are ongoing at facilities all across the country. You can learn more via the link on this site. You can check out my SS classes at Bally in Coral Springs-see my schedule page for days and times…As for the question about my certification, it is through AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America) which requires renewal every 2 years via continuing education as well as keeping CPR current. My Pilates training is through Polestar Pilates, with special thanks to Gil Roberts of One-on-One Pilates in Fresno, CA. If you are ever his way, check out his place and tell him Bonni sent you…Regarding my personal training schedule, I am booked solid at this time but will have some temporary availability through the summer months so we can discuss some options…And finally, to answer the question about vegan cookbooks, as much as I love Alicia Silverstone’s new book The Kind Diet, its definitely not my favorite cookbook. I LOVE How it all Vegan which is part of series by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. It is very, very simplistic and user friendly. At this point, however, simply googling just about anything you want to cook or bake (or anything at all in the whole world) seems to be the way I go. What in the world did I do before google? I never, ever have to wonder anymore!
Keep the comments and emails coming. I will continue to answer the more personal questions, personally!
Don’t forget to flip your calendars and welcome in the merry month of May. May is meditation month. Sometimes you have to get outside to get inside. Other times you just have to get inside your self, to get out of your own way. More about that as the month continues. For now, try to close your eyes for just a moment and focus on the rhythm of your breathing. Don’t try to change it, or judge it, just focus on it. The meditation process has begun.
