Hi & welcome to this week’s newsletter:
Once again, apologies for having to cancel all of last week’s classes. I know I’d said in last week’s newsletter (which was typed up & scheduled to go out ie when I thought I’d be ok/better by the Tuesday). I was still so choked with the cold and then on Thursday, felt even worse because I somehow had gastro-enteritis on top of the cold & a blinding headache! It was the worst ever and ...
Last Tuesday and Thursday, I had to go with a change of plan and instead of waiting until 6.30pm and doing live online Zoom classes along with you, I recorded each class earlier in the day and my intention is to do the same again this week.
Last week, I sent out an email to those who’d previously joined our live Zoom classes saying that if you intended to log in and join us on either evening, I would send the ...
What’s important to a healthy lifestyle for you?
We can brainstorm words like: nutrition, rest, exercise, fresh air, relaxation, meditation, stress-reduction & sleep.
What other words would you say are important? (let me know as I’ll have missed out a lot here).
Let’s talk about some of these but first: sleep! (not literally, I’m not hypnotizing you, we’re just gonna talk about sleep, ha 🤪):
I’ve recently read reports & heard from interviews that if you wear blue light eliminating glasses in the ...
Thanks sooo much to everyone who have joined our new indoor covered classes at Thistle Padel Court last Wed & Fri at 10am.

This week’s news:
Thanks sooo much to everyone who have joined our outdoor classes over the last 10 weeks when we were ...
Firstly, I’m sorry that I felt I had to cancel last Tuesday’s and Wednesday morning’s classes because of all the rain we had before those classes. I felt that I had to give you as much notice as possible as to whether classes were going ahead or not as I know some of you come to classes straight from work and some travel a bit of a distance to get there too.
It was just typical though that at 6.15pm on ...
This week’s news:
You’ll see from the classes timetable above on the Classes page of my website, we’re still outdoors this week at Paties Road Recreation Grounds for our Wed & Fri morning & Tue & Thurs evening classes.
Because of the new Government restrictions, we’ll still be outdoors next week at least too.
There’s no indoor exercise at the moment.
The Scottish Government website says that we can only exercise as a group outdoors and in a group of up to 30 people.
This week’s BIG news/newsletter:
We were very lucky with all our outdoor classes last week.
Tuesday was really lovely weather-wise, sunny and a great class & numbers.
Wednesday – well, according to the weather forecast, and depending on which weather app, I looked at, I was thinking of cancelling before we even started 😢
but I went with the best looking weather option on the Met Office app and emailed everyone saying the class was ON, yay 😁 just as well.
Lucky for us, it ...
I signed up to another online course and have been watching and listening to the daily videos about Alzheimer’s Disease prevention.
Did you know that the risk more than doubles in developing Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) in people who have type 2 diabetes or are insulin resistant?
and that women are more likely to develop AD in comparison to men.
Men do get AD as well but the ratio is 2:1 in women v men 😞.
Being overweight significantly increases the risk for AD too.
After last Thursday’s Government announcements re social distancing, self isolating and new rules on socialising, there seemed to have been some confusion as to what we can/can’t do from this week.
Confusion about how many people we can meet from x number of households etc and IF we could continue to exercise outdoors.
I’ve found out from various sources that WE CAN CONTINUE TO EXERCISE OUTDOORS, yessss! 👍
I got an email from my fitness governing body (and copied and pasted their guidelines to you ...
