Week beginning 8 May

I hope you are having a lovely long weekend with maybe a Coronation Lunch or Street Party.

While working on my allotment yesterday I was listening to the radio. Dr Chris van Tulleken was talking about Ultra Processed Food (UPF) and the impact it is having on the nation’s health especially for young people.  BBC Radio 4 – Saturday Live, Chris van Tulleken, Frieda Hughes, Gary Andrews, Alex Jones
This is what happens when he switches his diet: (152) UK doctor switches to 80% ULTRA-processed food diet for 30 days  BBC – YouTube
and how the nation’s diet has changed:
(152) The shocking transformation of the UK household diet since 1980  BBC – YouTube

Stick to your healthy food –  avoid those packages with long ingredients lists!

Spring Bank Holiday and 60th birthday.
There are no classes on the following dates:
Monday bank holiday
Monday 29 May
60th birthday evening off Thursday 18 May
There will be no evening classes as it is my 60th birthday Thursday 18 May (and no Saturday 20 May Nordic Walk.)

Road works around Prospect House 
I have been notified that there will be road works from the Tuesday 25th April from the start of Balcarres Road to Broad Square. This will done in 100 meter sections so allow a little bit more time to get to class.

Pilates on Zoom Tuesdays 7pm (apart from first Tuesday of the month)
Trying to fit exercise into our day can be challenging especially if you are working full time. I know for some people a Zoom Pilates class might be a lot more convenient. Every Tuesday except first Tuesday of the Month. Classes can be booked on Gymcatch.
