In Fitness..... If first you don’t succeed... try, try again! Fitness is a battle of wills more than anything else. In order to get on the fit track once and for all, one needs to work on their mindset- a workout of wills so to speak! The right mindset is essential to accomplish any task or goal in life. If I am going to get fit for summer, a wedding or to get healthy and feel good about myself, then I have to be determined in my own mind that it is something I can and will achieve. Human nature tends to dictate to us that if at first I don’t succeed then I need to simply stop. Getting fit or losing weight is not an easy task. It takes determination and time. Fight that mental battle first and see yourself really seeing those results!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if chocolate and heart health went hand in hand. These delicious craving-worthy morsels have in recent times received a bad rap- when watching what Biggest Loser contestants need to steer clear from in many of their weigh offs, it is only natural that people get a little confused when hearing that this may in fact be untrue! Now this is where we get down to the nitty gritty cold hard truth behind chocolate. It is true, that if people only ate pure cocoa, then there might be true health benefits. The problem is that most people eat processed chocolate bars containing sugar, corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, dairy cream not to mention other “baddies” contained in some of those tasty fillings. Some of those added ingredients can clog up arteries and create havoc to your waistline. So in essence, dark ¬chocolate that is primarily cocoa based is good for the ticker... however I would try to steer clear from the other varieties..... If you can!
