Halloween Scares

Welcome to 5.14,

Darkness. It's impossible to see. You stumble helplessly in the shadows. Your palms are sweaty and slipping off the walls as you trust body parts aimlessly towards where you think you could find a light and end your fall into the fathomless pit of despair- darkness. The room feels bigger than it did before, filled only by the melodic sound of you breathing. You try to calm yourself but the sounds become more rapid and intensified. You're panicking and you do not know why. Images start to flash and whirl; memories of horror films and stories you have heard. You know they are fake but believe they are real. At last the light is located and you grasp at it instinctively, it is on and all fear is revoked. The sack of sweets are laying on the table. Carefully you prise your hand in size, removing a mars bar slowly before cautiously unwrapping it... a few minutes later: all plans of dieting and commitments are broken! Back to square one!

Sorry about the introduction, I know what you are thinking: " Thought this was a fitness blog", well it is, I just thought I would do something a bit different and vary it up a bit. The message of this post is from a topic that I have not really touched on before and that is bad diets.

We all like chocolate, ice cream and other sweet treats, but that is exactly what they should be: TREATS. They should not make up more than 10% of any healthy diet, even if you are trying to put on size this is not a good way to go about it, this is simple as they are full of calories (energy) and when we have too much energy we have to store it (fat). 

A bad diet/nutrition is likely to damage your physical health and mental ability, to be short, bad dieting can help with increasing stress, tiredness and your ability work/ concentrate, in addition it can contribute to the development of other health problems including:
  • obesity
  • dental issues
  • increased blood pressure
  • increased cholesterol
  • heart disease and stroke
  • type-2 diabetes
  • osteoporosis
  • certain types of cancer
  • depression
  • eating disorders (bulimia, anorexia, obesity)
Moreover, who wants to be over weight? I know we do not want to admit it, but it is human nature to judge people on first impressions and if you look over weight you are automatically associated with laziness, lack of care and greediness- this is seen as unattractive, even if this is untrue.

So I beg of all you people, that are working hard towards a goal and making real progress, not to let it slip tonight. Do not give in to temptation, you will feel so disappointed afterwards- believe someone who knows.

Thanks for reading, hope this helps, please read again, do all the normal stuff and any following is returned- work hard and peace!


p.s happy halloween
