Fruit/Wi and Tai Chi

……the weekend
can be harder for me food wise, especially with GM working in the afternoon/evenings…..it was so hot last night and I felt at a loose end [you know…unravelling lol]
I did munch on a lot of fresh fruit, which is better than processed junk foods….. but I was still turning to the fruit for something to do!! interesting?!?!??!?
…….in reflection I should have sat down at the computer and typed up my blog  😉

I started a local Tai Chi class on Friday night with my sugar policewoman and another lovely lady Lisa……it was great, had always been interested in the  exercise style, but I had never “got around to it” . The instructor was great and I found it quite relaxing, looking forward to a regular internal and external workout!!

Gentle exercise (as found in Tai Chi):

  • Produces a refreshed, greater mental focus
  • Creates better sleep patterns
  • Boosts the body immune system
  • Protects joints and bones
  • Creates good body posture and skeletal integration
  • Promotes muscle fitness
  • Stimulates body endorphins production

I miss my daily swimming when we lived in the big bad city, and haven’t replaced it with anything!!!  bad bad girl, tho in saying that have dragged out the Wi from storage and set it up in the lounge, as it weighs you too with a graph etc, to track your weight and body mass index, as well as using the step board for exercises, and now that I have it out I will start-up an exercise program for myself using its many applications like yoga/strength training/balance games/stepping etc

    That’s brilliant! Better being bet to good use than stuck in a cupboard somewhere.
    Yep perhaps if you get the munchies cut up some carrots, celery and some hummus dip (if you like that, that is) or a low fat cottage cheese or something and blog away, tell us about some other things if you wish, your childhood, your life and nibble happily away knowing that you are being a good girl by serving the blogging community (me) lol and eating well at the same time 🙂 well done on the Tai Chi also 🙂 xx

    Sorry Had to do it re: Grain Waves ….yukkkkk

    For those of you who are weight conscious, if we look at kilojoule content per 40g serve there is not much difference between Grain Waves, Potato and Corn Chips. So if you are trying to lose weight, you’re best off sticking to the popcorn – you can have 7 cups of homemade popcorn for the same kilojoules as a 40g packet of Grain Waves.

    SUGAR POLICE : )
