HEALTH and LIFESTYLE
Did you know that…
I thought Id ask you to bring a small or medium sized pumpkin on Wednesday to our resistance training workout which we can use (instead of hand weights) as a weight in our 9.30am class. We’ve used pumpkins before and thought we’d use them again as part of our pre-Halloween celebrations. Bring any squash, any size and you can carve it later and use it to make a lovely stew or soup. In the past, we’ve also worked out in our Halloween clothing ie orange top, spidery tights or leggings, witches hat, a bat or 2 here and there …… spooky.
I love Real Foods and have been shopping there for years (probably 30). They have shops at 37 Broughton St and 8 Brougham St, Tollcross and I love their organic, veggie, vegan, Fairtrade selections.
You can also order online and they have lots of info and recipes including Christmas baking recipes too – just a thought, prepare early!

October is Lupus Awareness Month. Find out more at http://www.lupusuk.org.uk/
Its also National Cholesterol Month too. Info at http://heartuk.org.uk/health-and-high-cholesterol and there’s also a tab with info about cholesterol and diet.
A Polish study suggests that drinking several cups of green tea with a meal may help to cut the calories absorbed from bread and potatoes.
Lack of sleep, especially as we age, has been linked to obesity, heart disease and diabetes in research published by Surrey University. If you find it difficult to get 7 or 8 hours sleep a night, try these tips:
Go to bed and get up at a regular time.
Eat your evening meal at least 2 hours before you go to bed.
Avoid caffeine or caffeinated drinks for 4 to 6 hours before going to bed.
Don’t take naps after 3pm – they may boost brain power but late afternoon naps make it harder to fall asleep at night.
Leave your mobile phone or tablet downstairs or in another room.
Something to think about:
Including this week, we have 7 weeks of classes to get into shape for our LBDs, to get fit and strong to carry all the shopping and presents and to look amazing for our events, parties, lunches and dinners.
So no time like the present, come to classes this week and for the next 6 to get yourself ready for the season.
In our December Fitness Pilates classes, we’ll incorporate some stretching and relaxing with the lights off and we’ll light our tea lights and enjoy the candle-lit atmosphere to help us relax, unwind and de-stress.
All that in good time though.
We also have to think about our pre-Christmas Fitness Lunch soon too and get booked up.
Dates to consider for the majority to be able to join us are: Monday 7, Friday 11 or Monday 14 December and only 6 weeks away. I guess that a Friday will be really busy and will get booked up very soon but I’m happy to go with the majority. Where to go??? Any suggestions? Get back to me thanks.
Eat protein at every meal to stop blood sugar spiking.
