HEALTH and LIFESTYLE
Did you know that…
Key benefits of improved Alignment –
*The impact of gravity on your spine and joints will be reduced every day, whether you are moving or at rest.
*The risk of strain or injury is lessened with good alignment, particularly with more challenging and dynamic exercises.
*Improvements in your posture, how you carry yourself, and how you move every day result from awareness of body alignment.

I love www.kriscarr.com, bought her Crazy Sexy cookbook, love reading her blogs and thought I’d pass on this blog to you about prioritising and getting stuff / less done. I thought it was really helpful and useful as I’ve always got a million things to do ‘on my list’. This can be very frustrating and overwhelming and sometimes, I feel that I never get anything done, it can all be too much and sometimes, you just don’t know where to start (maybe it’s just me? You’re probably super organised and accomplish a lot and if so, I wish I was). You’ll see that Kris also mentions Headspace which I mentioned to you in a recent Fitness Newsletter. Here’s the blog, see what you think
Oh, there are also loads of healthy recipe ideas on Kris’ website too.
Complementary Fitness Video –
I’ve organising all my youtube videos under appropriate Playlists now and this one’s on the ‘Resistance Training Workouts’ Playlist
http://youtu.be/DWU7fvrtIiQ Resistance Training with Weights
Just to let you know that the other Playlists are called: Fitness Pilates/Yoga, Warm Ups and Stretches, and Fitness Salsa (only 1 video so far). There are also 1 or 2 videos under the Insanity Playlist (when Nicola recently taught Insanity) and Complementary Fitness (a couple of general videos). Let me know what you think and …. do more exercise training with me.
Something to think about:

I made some Cashew Bliss Balls (which I adapted from David Wolfe’s Cacao bliss balls recipe) at the weekend and thought I’d share this easy recipe with you – they’re sooo delicious and good for you too.
Blend together in a food processor:
1½ cups cashew nuts (I pre-soaked them for 8 hours/overnight, rinsed & drained them 1st to release the enzyme inhibitors and easier to digest),
9 Medjool (or ‘ordinary’) dates (if dried, soak for at least ½ an hour so easier to blend),
2T (tablespoons) dark tahini (sesame paste),
1T honey, 3T cacao powder + 1½ tsp vanilla extract
Once everything is ground down, mixed and blended together, I rolled mixture into walnut sized balls (or larger) then coated them with desiccated coconut. You could roll some in shelled hemp seeds. Depending on size, this mixture makes about 14 or 15 cashew balls to enjoy with your morning coffee/herbal tea or after your workout.
Diary Date/News of a Brand NEW CLASS starting 6.35pm CORE COMBAT from Thursday 3 September in Dreghorn Loan Hall. I hope that you’ll join this fun Core Combat workout then. The more, the merrier.
Let’s workout to great music, work off some steam with jabs, punches, shuffles+ kicks.
