Move 2 Lose – Julie
How the weather has changed this week and yes you may feel like you don’t want to turn out, but you know as soon as you get moving you will get warm and be happy at the end of the class that you turned up.
With only a few weeks left before I break up for Christmas please make the most of the classes and attend as many as you can.
Wow RED & Black everywhere,
 thank you so much
(words I can never say enough times)
What an amazing bunch of ladies and yes I managed to say quiet for a whole
 2 minutes !!

 

Do you write a list?
Planning meals, how do you plan your weekly meals?
 if the answer is
 “I don’t”
what do you do, open the fridge and hope a home made lasagne will jump out, open the freezer and grab 6 fish fingers and a few frozen chips (um lovely) or make a sandwich!
It has been proven that making a list and shopping for the correct ingredients will help you to eat a healthy well balanced meal.
 Note: I did not say…… help you lose weight!
Firstly think about what you are eating, how much and when, 3 important factors to you loosing weight.
So go on ……. It’s Sunday, grab a pen and paper and start writing:
Monday…. Chicken Curry
Vegetarian… veg curry
Tuesday….. Salmon, new potatoes and green beans
Vegetarian … Omelet, new potatoes and veg
Wednesday…. Home made shepherds pie, a little mash and loads of veg.
Vegetarian..use quorn
Thursday ….. Sausage – mash and beans
Vegetarian..  Stuffed peppers or mushrooms
Friday….. Vegetable Moussaka, bought or home made
Saturday… (treat night) Steak and home made sweet potato chips, salad
Vegetarian…. Pasta with roasted veg
Sunday…… ROAST….vegetarian fish or meat free
……. now buy the low fat ingredients, cook as low fat and healthy as you can, BUT remember portion sizes……. and enjoy your week.
Word of the week: SOUP
Traditionally, soups are classified into two main groups: clear soups and thick soups. The established French classifications of clear soups are bouillon and consommé. Thick soups are classified depending upon the type of thickening agent used: purées are vegetable soups thickened with starch; bisques are made from puréed shellfish or vegetables thickened with cream; cream soups may be thickened with béchamel sauce; and veloutés are thickened with eggsbutter, and cream. Other ingredients commonly used to thicken soups and broths include egg,rice, lentilsflour, and grains; many popular soups also include carrots and potatoes.
Soups are similar to stews, and in some cases there may not be a clear distinction between the two; however, soups generally have more liquid than stews.
The shops used to have a shelf with a few tins of tomato, chicken and maybe a broth or two but nowadays the choice is huge. Read the labels please as many are high in salt and some of the low fat brands will just not fill you up…..

I’m COLD
Should You Exercise When You Have a Cold?
It’s usually safe to do it as long as you listen to your body. You’ll need to watch out for certain risky situations.
Physical activity increases your heart rate, but so can some cold medicines. A combo of exercise and decongestants can cause your heart to pump very hard. You may become short of breath and have trouble breathing.
If you have asthma and a cold, make sure you talk with your doctor before you exercise. It may cause you to cough and wheeze more and make you short of breath.
When your cold comes with a fever, exercise could stress your body even more. So wait a few days to get back to your regular exercise program.
Also be careful about working out too hard when you have a cold. It can make you feel worse and slow down your recovery.
How do you feel about winter months and the cold weather?
  1. Change your mind’s thought. Winter isn’t just about cold weather, it’s about warm food, stews, soups, jacket potatoes, and yes dumplings!!
  2. Go out and WALK, (especially if you had dumplings) no better way to feel the cold air than a brisk walk.
  3. Christmas shopping trips to town !!!  Don’t leave these days until December, start now, walk into town if you can and bus home with your bags rather than a £5 car park fee!
  4. Get creative at home. Knitting, puzzles,read,cook,and just how many poppies did Janet knit?
  5. Sort out your address book (email and book) for your christmas card list.
  6. Set a big goal-and some little goals. Too late in the year for a big goal? then what do you want to weigh on Christmas day ? will staying away from class help
  7. Get busy….. cold days at home, don’t put the heating on – put the radio on and Move 2 Lose.
