…is this Thursday (8/3/18). It’s aim being to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. I have already shared with you the impression that the stories about the sacrifices of the suffragettes and the dedicated men who supported these ladies in their fight for equality has had on me. There is more work to do in terms of equalism (the equal rights for everyone irrespective of gender, sexuality, religion, politics etc.). The first part of creating equality is an awakening to our own unconscious acceptance of and contribution to inequality – often our own. It’s worth noting more carefully our own on language and actions in addition to that of those whom have influence i.e. parents, peers, employers, managers, educators and so on.
When I attuned my ears and thoughts along these lines it was quite surprising, even shocking! By resisting ‘non equal’ thoughts and actions we can contribute to a balanced and equal society …… wouldn’t that be fantastic.

I applaud and celebrate the amazing talented, dedicated and world/life changing, even in seemingly small ways, Women (and Men) I have met over the years. Those who have helped me and challenged me, who have lifted me, informed, educated and supported me. I hope to have the same influence on other women and for them to influence more that I do, to more than I do and so we continue the great work of the suffragettes until equality in all aspects of life is achieved and maintained.

Happy International Women’s Day ladies, take a bow – the 8th March is your day x

 

Now the snow has gone!
After only 4 ladies making it to Barre Fit on Wednesday and by the tone of the weather forecasts and messages from class members telling me they didn’t want to risk coming out in the snow, I cancelled Thursday and Friday night’s classes (the irony of cancelling Ski Fit because of snow wasn’t lost on me!)
The majority of my brave one to one clients made it to training safely, well done to them.

Thankfully all classes are back up and running (oh my gosh cabin fever doesn’t do that feeling of being house bound justice) – I cant wait to see you all, we have some catching up to do, don’t we.

 

Remember our new Classes
Barre Fit on Wednesdays 7.30pm (new barres and new exercises)
and
Ski, Skate and Core Fit on Friday 6.30pm

Bread!
I haven’t eaten bread for I don’t know how long and I’ve got used to life, bread free!
I know some folks love a slice of bread with eggs or dunked in soup, if that’s you then take a look at this recipe, I haven’t made it yet, let me know how you get on!

Ingredients
3 large eggs
120g fat cream cheese
50g whey Protein, Im going to try pea protein
25g psyllium husk
⅛ tsp fine sea/pink Himalayan salt
2 tsp baking powder (sifted)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Sprinkle of coconut flour
Tsp coconut oil

Instructions
1. Pre-heat oven to 140ºC fan (160ºC static).
2. Place dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk until well blended, NO lumps.
3. In a separate bowl, soften cream cheese using a hand whisk and add eggs one at a time, whisking in between each.
4. Combine dry and wet ingredients, whisking to amalgamate really well, and finally, incorporate the vinegar.
5. Let the mixture rest for a couple of minutes, until it thickens and becomes quite gooey (add a little more psyllium if too runny – it should stick to your spoon, rather than slide off it)
6. Smear a little coconut oil over the base and sides of a loaf tin (20cm x 11cm x 7cm height / 17cm x 8cm at the base), then pour the mixture and level it.
7. Bake for 35 minutes or until brown on top and an inserted skewer comes out clean.
8. Allow the loaf to cool, then dust with coconut flour to mimic the farmhouse look (optional).

Notes
It is imperative that you sift the baking powder and whisk the dry ingredients until no little lumps exist.
Once the loaf is completely cool, you can transfer it to a sealed plastic container and it will keep for 3-4 days at room temperature.
Re-heating isn’t necessary, as the loaf tastes and feels like ordinary sandwich bread, but toasting makes it exceptional.

(To avoid stodgy bread that has a purple tinge and smells odd, choose psyllium husk powder that is very fine and light in colour (sometimes called ‘blonde’ psyllium’. As psyllium is a natural, unadulterated product, batches can differ and give variable results.)

I must have been having a massage with Helen, on a monthly basis for over 10 years now.  I really value this time.  Helen will advise me if there is a small problem with my back or legs, and give me the right exercises to do , to correct the problem.  Helen has helped me before and after 2 uni-compartmental knee replacement operations.  I am 73 years old and thankfully feel fit.  I swim twice a week, enjoy pilates and a hydrofit class.  Helen  has been a major help in keeping me flexible, fit and healthy, and I recommend her most highly.
