Hi, guys! Happy Friday!
I haven’t done one of these I Bet You Didn’t Know posts in awhile now, so I figured it was about time for another one. That’s said, here are some things that I bet you didn’t know!
Half of all American adults have worked in a restaurant at some point in their lives (National Geographic, May 2014). Doesn’t that seem like a lot? I waitressed all through college, so I spent my fair share of time working in restaurants, but that number definitely surprised me.
A banana is technically a berry, but a strawberry is not. Whoa. Mind blown.
The first cassette tape that I ever owned was Tiffany’s self-titled album, and the first CD that I owned was Blind Melon’s self-titled album. A group of us at CrossFit was talking about our first album purchases the other day, so I thought it would be fun to share this random piece of info on CNC. Plus, I just really love hearing what people’s first albums were!
I am absolutely obsessed with Rainbow sandals. They’re the most comfortable flip flops ever and they go with just about every outfit, so they’re low-maintenance and pretty much the only shoe I wear all summer long. My current pair has been loved to death, so I am really hoping Mal buys me some new ones for my birthday. (I keep dropping hints about how worn out and gross my old ones are. I hope he catches on!)
Not all saturated fat is bad for you! Some of it is even good for you. Side note: I actually heard a segment with Michael Pollan on NPR yesterday after I wrote this post, and he said just two out of hundreds of studies linked saturated fat to heart disease. Eat your bacon!
You don‘t you need to do hours and hours of cardio to lose weight. Check out this podcast with Abel James. His thoughts on the exercise component of losing weight and having a great body are really interesting. Basically, he says you need to get your diet in order, utilize high-intensity intervals in your training, and NOT spend hours working out.
