I know, I know…that as early as now, everyone is preparing for the summer. And it is fast approaching. I like summer season not because of the heat. It is because of the interesting and exciting activities we can do such outing, camping, fishing, vacationing, and swimming in the pool or at the beach.
It is undeniable that we are trying to keep up with acquiring a beach body. Yes. I am one of those ladies who is hoping to build toned muscles and sexy body for the summer. Besides a regular exercise, a balanced diet is very important if we want to achieve the beach body goal. They said that too much carbohydrates in our meal is not advisable. In addition, sugar levels should be taken into consideration so it will stay normal. Eating lots of sweets is not good either. But if we eat in moderation like a low carb chocolate, for example, we might be able to control our diet.
Eating healthy is very important if people are always on-the-go. And summer season is getting closer that everyone is anxious to go on vacation to the beach or likely on a cruise. Wherever we may go to celebrate the summer season, healthy eating should be kept in mind.
One day, while I was waiting for a ride to work, a group of children came to me and asked if I would like to buy a chocolate. Of course, I interrogated them a little. I learned that they are selling chocolate fundraisers to help them gather funds for their Science group project in school.
Although I really wanted to buy more chocolates so the kids will go home and sell a few left for the day, I thought my budget won’t be enough. So I just bought couple. Chocolate fundraisers can help achieve simple goals those kids have. Rather than playing all day on a weekend, those kids have taken responsibility of accomplishing their school project with teamwork.
I have a sweet tooth. I cannot imagine myself leaving a restaurant after a big meal without ordering a chocolate dessert. Yes I love chocolates. My husband gives me a box of chocolate on special occasion always. I remember when we were on vacation in Oklahoma and stayed in a very nice hotel, I ate all the chocolate bars (three bars in the fridge). That was scary because I could have either an upset stomach or toothache, or both.
There was a time I collected chocolates. I had a special compartment in our refrigerator where I put my chocolates in different sizes, packs, and labels. Wherever I go, I’d buy a chocolate of different kind whenever there’s a chance. However, I am never a fan of the dark chocolate. Some say it has health benefits. Well, maybe I have to start liking it now. And I have to limit my sugar intake including the chocolates.
