This Is What Happens To Your Body When You ExerciseArticle by Dr Mercola
One of the key health benefits of exercise is that it helps normalize your glucose, insulin, and leptin levels by optimizing insulin/leptin receptor sensitivity. This is perhaps the most important factor for optimizing your overall health and preventing chronic disease.

But exercise affects your body in countless other ways as well — both directly and indirectly. Here, however, even the most unexpected side effects are almost universally beneficial. For example, as illustrated in the article, side effects of exercise include but are not limited to:
· Improved sexual function
· Changes in gene expression
· Clearer skin
· Improved mood
· Improved sleep

I’ve added some more of this Article on the Articles Page on my website and the rest is on:

I saw this advert the other day for recipes that included yoghurt. There are lots of recipes adding natural yoghurt to cakes in place of oil or butter making them moist, delicious and a little bit lighter. Click on great ideas for our coffee morning!

I love beetroot and see that there are lots of healthy and fun facts and recipes using beetroot at

Something to think about
“Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace” (Marianne Williamson)

“A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking because her trust is not in the branch but on it’s own wings. Always believe in yourself”. (anonymous)

Keep going. Each step might get harder but don’t stop. The view is beautiful at the top.

I’d personally like to recommend Alwin Robinson’s High Energy Academy course. You can listen to one of his free webinars (almost an hour in length) on how to reduce stress and have more energy at You can register and submit your email address to access lots of free training.

    Just a bit of feedback, really enjoyed your class yesterday (25/9/13), some quite hard work but good. This morning, happy not to have any achy muscles, but noticing my posture feels noticeably different, shoulders back and back straight without even trying! In fact, if I try to change to bad posture there’s resistance, so keep it up, we’ll all end up taller! See you tonight, KT
