HEALTHY EATING HABITS
In my sport soccer is all about fitness and you must be strong so in my sport you will have to eat healthy so that your bones have to be strong and not get easily injured when you playing a game.As a sport person you maintain your health issues so that you must not get so often tired easily before maybe ten minutes.So as my knowledge you will have to eat fruits every time when you going to the match field and other things you will have to eat papa,paste and all the protein and for you to keep your shape you must eat meat.

healthy eating habits

Before going to the ground i had eat two slice of bed.There when it's first half our coach gave as one fruit that is banana.When you play soccer you must have theer breaks that two is for water break and one is for halt time.Banana is a healthy fruit for soccer players because banana is not having too mush water.During the water break you must drink a energyrade that will gave you a power so each and ereverytime you going to play soccer you must have a fruit.If don't have it then u must drink water not to much water because you will fill the pain in your stomach and that thing will keep you out of the game.It is so important to eat healthy food before play your sport.

Healthy Eating Habits

Good eating habits

Good eating habits are really good in such a way that you can even know what you will be eating or what would you need to eat when you are a sportsman/sportswomen .When you are on a daily diet you eat certain type of food e.g you can not eat bread or any sugar while playing sports .In this way you can live a healthy life and you can live longer.

Bad Eating Habits

Bad eating habits are bad because they can tempt you to eat sweets &chocolates a lot than eating healthy green food. They are sometimes good for our bodies because when you are injured and you are at the hospital they give you to much of energy which can give you the ability to do some work. Junk food is nice because it can give you too much energy than just being weak and when you are getting ready for sports match or practice

GOOD EATING HABITS AND BAD EATING HABITS

Good food gives you the long and healthy life. but my good food that I think gets me going is fruit every day. As they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

VEGETABLES and MIKE is one thing I can’t go to sleep with out. Because it keeps my blood fresh and helps me think. Vega and milk helps a lot when you are a rugby player. MIKE helps our bones to grown and be strong while the Vega helps our blood to flow and helps with our thinking.

8. The Health and fitnness Project a Blog by Terri

The health and fitness project



In the second term of school, we started a health and fitness project, during which we teach the learners how to keep fit and healthy by playing sport. The schools participating in the project are Ntaba Maria PS, Good Shepard PS, C.M Vellem HPS, Seventh Day Adventist School, Archie Mbolekwa SS and Khuhliso Daniel SS.

During the first week, we discussed team sports and eating habits in the awarenet forum. Some examples:

  • What is your favourite sport?
  • What training do you do to keep fit in this sport?
  • How many times a week do you train for your sport?

Sompani from Ntaba Maria PS said: “Netball it is my favourite sport, because it helps me to keep my joints strong and well working. We do our netball sessions with our netball coach at school and we train four times a week.”

Fatyi Sisipho from Archie Mbolekwa SS answered: “I do few of some fitness training just like boxing, because you need to have strength when u are ruby player. Rugby is my favourite sport. I train twice a week.”


We also put the theory in action and played some soccer and netball, which are the two sporting codes that the learners really enjoy participating in. We trained to build up some fitness for the awarenet Health and Fitness Day on Youth Day. Two soccer balls were donated by Albany Sports from Grahamstown. The sporting activities happened on the school grounds. Photos were taken during the playing of the different sporting Codes.

Finally, motivational talks were also given about keeping motivated in sport and how to become the best you want to become in sport. Ntaba Maria PS learners had the opportunity to listen to Rooi Rikhotso talking about how to keep motivated in sport while still focusing on academics, not to get involved in wrong doings and wrong friends. Rooi is a top runner from Grahamstown (originally from Limpopo) and works as a security guard. The learners enjoyed Rooi’s talk and found him very inspirational.

Seventh Day Adventist School and Good Shepard PS had the opportunity to listen to Thandoxolo Royi talking about his sport, Karate. Thandoxolo is a Grade 10 pupil at Nombulelo Secondary School and also an active awarenet student. He is very good in Karate, working towards his Black Belt in the next few years. The learners found him very inspiring as gave a very good insight to the world of Karate. They even had the opportunity to learn a few karate moves as he demonstrated them.

Chris Tobela motivated C.M Vellem HPS with his Soccer Coaching skills giving them advice how to achieve in Soccer. Chris works at Albany Sports and is a soccer coach for the ladies soccer team called African Connections. They thoroughly enjoyed hes talk. Blogs were written about all the motivational talks.

The new few weeks we will keep training and also learn about good nutrition until the awarenet Health and Fitness Day. During this day, we will have soccer tournament and the learners can compete for Mr. and Miss Fitness. Additionally, there will be a Karate demonstration by Thando and the Joza Karate Club. The project has been a great success so far and the learners are enjoying playing sport and learning about Health and Fitness.

10. The awarenet health and fitness day a blog by Lukas

Each year VSA works together with the learners on the topic “health and fitness” including a culmination at the end of the term. During the awarenet sessions we either played soccer, dodgeball or frisbee or we worked on blogs and forum questions. This year the health & fitness day was celebrated on the 12th of June. Learners from five different schools participted in the event. In the beginning after having a little snack the karateka of the Joza Karate Club put their skills on stage and amazed everyone with different Katas and training fights. Afterwards the Mr. and Mrs. Fitness were determined within a sports-procedure consisting of pushups, crunches and star jumps. Zezuthu Fikani of the S.D.A School and Thanduxolo Rooi of Nombulelo P.S. won that competition. In the end the schools participated in a soccer tournament which was dominated by the Grade 9 learners of C.M. Vellem.
Overall it was an awesome day and we would like to thank the learners who showed up despite being in exam stress.

Also, we would like to thank the sponsors who facilitated this event namely Run/Walk for Life which sponsored R500 and water bottles, Albany business Machines which donated pads as well as Madhatters-Cake which donated a lovly cake.

Looking forward to hosting the next Health & Fitness project next year!
