Happy New You!

Traditionally New Year is the time for resolutions so it is the perfect time to share some health and fitness advice. The Herald are also featuring a month of health features so I will be linking to them throughout January.

My first bit of advice is never carry a live rooted Xmas tree through the house whilst wearing a fleecy dressing gown, I think it has taken me 3 days to remove the pine needles from my clothing and my flesh!

Onto some serious fitnss advice that is particularly apt for us pole dancers but will also be helpful to people who do jobs such as data input, conditions such as repetetive strain are common amongst these professions and simple wrist exercises can help avoid such conditions. Check out this link for a series of wrist exercises. Thanks to Annie Norris from Pure Pole for the link.

Now this time of year usually involves most of us whinging that we have eaten too much over Xmas so it is a great opportunity to think about weight management. I prefer to use the term weight management as opposed to dieting as I don't want any connection with some of the awful fad diets that are lurking about. My husband Sid has compiled a great web page looking at all aspects of weight management, click here to see the page. You can also click on the picture above left for a link to the nutrition frenzy website. Don't forget the blog of dieter Ellie Hudson for fun dieting advice!

As part of my start to 2009 I have done something that, for me, is quite an unusual form of exercise: Housework! I have spent the last few days cleaning both the Plymouth studio and my house. I hope you like the following pictures of Plymouth studio looking ready for its opening tomorrow. I have some fab new session plans for my students although they may not find them as enjoyable as me:Well more news from me very soon,

Stay Healthy,
