I thought I’d send you a link to Real Foods’ Jan/Feb Newsletter (you know how I love Real Foods, have shopped there for about 28/30 years). Anyway, loads of info on here and 10% discount too – enjoy.
Regular resistance training helps to stave off osteoporosis by building and maintaining strong bones. Try Wednesday’s 9.30 am Body Conditioning Resistance class.
This smart smoothie is rich in vitamin A and fibre and has a spicy kick to rev up your metabolism.
It’ll also help maintain your blood sugar levels…
Blend: 3 apples cored, 3 carrots, ¼ tsp ground cinnamon, 150ml almond or soya milk, a pinch of cayenne pepper – enjoy.
(ps I make my own almond milk, it’s so easy + sugar free).
Chillies contain a compound called capsaicin which helps to speed up metabolism long after you finish your meal.
Something to think about…

Did you know?
Small change can make a big difference – start by eating more vegetables and some fruit.
You can achieve your goals – you know you can.
Exercising at least 3 times a week boosts the function of brain cells, lowering the risks of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia (Women’s Fitness)
Working out in the morning has been shown to boost productivity all day – see you on Wednesday & Friday 9.30 classes?
Lower back pain can be caused by tight hamstrings pulling the back of the pelvis down – stretch out your hamstrings.
Compound exercises require several muscle groups to work together – think squats (legs, gluts) and bicep curls. Compound exercises are tougher so they’ll tone muscle and burn more calories.
You’ll maybe have noticed that I sometimes like to wear Skins leggings. According to their website www.skins.net say they improve power, endurance, recovery and reduce the risk of injury and are scientifically proven Engineered Gradient Compression clothing. This scientific innovation improves blood circulation getting more oxygen to your muscles, helping you shape, tone and sculpt your body.
“thanks so much for your email, really kind of you, … ‘Feel the burn’! At least it’s a rewarding sort of pain!
So I’ll definitely be back. It was a great class and just what I need to ‘kick-start’ me into getting back into shape … a really good balance of exercises that made me feel I’d worked hard without being defeated”.
