Happy Valentines Day

WEll I hope everyone has a Happy Valentines Day. Another one of those days that seems to be put square in the way of anyone attempting to discard fat and get healthy.

But it is chocolate you say. Well there are conflicting reports on the healthiness of chocolate. I tend to think that a little dark chocolate a day isn't going to hurt you and may actually help you due to the flavanoids in it.

Like I said Dark chocolate. Not milk chocolate, white chocolate, or any of the others. In fact if I had to hazard a guess the chocolate that is actually healthy for you is the Baker's Chocolate that is unsweetened. Actually I like it but it tends to be too bitter for most folks.

So if your going to have chocolate this valentines, make it dark chocolate and only eat one piece. Then tomorrow do an extra 10 minutes on cardio or lift an extra set on the weights ;)

Don't go feeling sorry for yourself if you find yourself alone this Valentine's Day like I do and go burying yourself in a box of chocolates and a tub of ice cream. Get out there and exercise instead. Go to the gym. The endorphin release from the exercise will make you feel better, there are other single people at the gym with out a partner, and you might just meet someone.

As they say "take a chance, do a dance". Speaking of dancing, did you know that dancing was a good cardio workout? It is fun besides.

Till next time,
