About Me

hi there & welcome to my crazy little corner of the blog world! i'm Julianna, a second year student at UCLA. i'm currently studying Physiological Science, and i have a huge passion for anything health/fitness related.


i started this blog almost three years ago after reading other healthy living blogs for quite a few years. i had no idea what i was getting into at the time, but all i can say is that this blog is one of the best things that has ever happened to me, for many reasons. but above all, this blog has helped me to find... me.

you can read more about my fitness background here, but long story short, i love running, CrossFit, and trying new things. i'm also training to become a group fitness instructor and should be certified and teaching by the end of this school year if all goes well!


i also really love food and have been interested in nutrition since the beginning of high school. i don't follow a particular 'style' of eating, and pretty much just listen to my body and eat whatever i feel like. i love healthy food so most of the time this works out in a nice balance (and leaves plenty of room for pizza and froyo, two very important food groups).

a few other things about me: i'm a crazy cat lady, a coffee addict, and a Bay Area native. i often have crazy dance parties in my kitchen, and i think naps are highly underrated. i'm known to have at least three jars of nut butter open at all times, and i've seen every single episode of Seinfeld. i love country music, obstacle course mud runs, writing for Daily Bruin Mojo, and wearing dresses (so i don't have to wear pants). and my name rhymes with banana, in case you couldn't tell by my blog title.

i hope you enjoy following along as i find my way through this sweet blessing called life! i love to hear from readers, so feel free to email me (juliannabananna at gmail dot com), leave a comment, or find me on one of the many social networks out there. thank you so much for stopping by!

  5. Just dropped by and I have to say I just LOVE the name of your blog! People always call me "Saranna Banana," but the problem is "Saranna" only rhymes with "Banana" when it's pronounced wrong! So kind of the opposite of your trick for telling people how to pronounce your name.

    I'll definitely be stopping by to read more! Glad I found your blog! :)
