Please Note that Dreghorn Loan Hall is not now available for our 9.30am classes on Wednesday 19 or Fri 21 February because there will be repairs done on the ceiling that week during the day. I’m trying to make alternative arrangements so that we can keep our classes going on those 2 mornings and will let you know asap. Please let me know if you can / can’t come to these 2 classes for hall letting purposes, thanks.
This does not affect our classes on Thurs 20 Feb, they’re on in Dreghorn Loan Hall as usual – I’ve been assured evening classes won’t be affected that week.
Something to think about
If you do one thing this week……boost your energy with these foods!
Nuts: Cashews, almonds, and hazelnuts are high in magnesium, which plays a key role in converting sugar to energy. They’re also filled with fibre to keep your blood sugar levels even and protein to stave off hunger. Keep a bag of mixed nuts or trail mix in your purse or desk drawer to stay energetic all day.
Lentils: Lentils and other legumes — like chickpeas or kidney beans — stabilize blood glucose levels and can help prevent a mid afternoon crash.
Kale: Kale really is a superfood. High in vitamins and minerals, kale is a great energy booster and key source of calcium.
Ginger Tea: Forget coffee and grab a tea. Ginger infused tea is filled with antioxidants and nutrients that can give you an afternoon boost.
Bananas: Rich in potassium and B vitamins, bananas help slow down digestion and can keep blood sugar levels stable. (Green People UK)
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream – C S Lewis
Life is better when you’re laughing.
If you’re thinking of training to run, you can pre-register for a 5k run on Sunday 8 June from Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston. Find out more and register at www.colormerad.co.uk
Thoughts are an important part of your inner wisdom and they are very powerful. A thought held long enough and repeated often enough becomes a belief. A belief then becomes your biology – Dr Christine Northrup
Your body can stand almost anything. It’s your mind that you have to convince (Healthy Living Tips)
It doesn’t really matter who you used to be – it matters who you’ve become.

To see a mass of snowdrops on a roadside bank or in a woodland is a magical moment. To find out where you can see them near where you live, go to the website below – The Scottish Snowdrop Festival – 1 February to 16 March 2014.
