This is a great blog from my friend blogger Elegant Ageless Beauty. This is a little bit about her:
My blog is mainly going to be aimed at us more “mature” ladies who love make up and skin care, those of us who always like to look good no matter what age we are. I, myself am now in my 54th year! I am a Grandmother to 4 beautiful grandchildren, who call me Cakey Nanny! ( I make cakes!! lol)

Did you know that your feet may hold the key to health? It’s difficult to believe it, but pressing a particular spot on this part of your body can relieve your toothache, stop your back ache or even calm the itch of eczema.
Experts claim that a person’s feet are like the roots of a tree: the state of your feet influences the rest of your body.

Fitness League Festival – Royal Albert Hall.
Fitness League presents an exercise, movement and dance festival featuring classes, workshops and other activities centred around health and wellbeing throughout the Hall.
There will be masterclasses, the final of ‘Strictly Walking’, and a show in which Fitness League performers will demonstrate their energy, enthusiasm, skill and artistry. Throughout the day there will also be tours of the Royal Albert Hall, talks, workshops, pamper areas and music; plenty to keep everyone entertained!
Fitness League, a well-established nationwide exercise network, is a founder partner of the Exercise Movement and Dance Partnership. Its teachers throughout the UK deliver classes teaching Bagot Stack, designed to improve posture and well-being through central control (core stability) and rhythmic exercise to music, releasing the body’s potential for good health. This event will be a celebration of the 85th anniversary of the Fitness League.
Finally a post about the dinners, which I must admit have been truly scrumptious! They are varied – Italian, Indian, Vietnamese and Vegetarian, which you can add a mixed salad or vegetables to. They are measured portions and a little over 350 calories each and there was only one I wasn’t keen on and that we the Spaghetti Carbonara. You can choose the meals when you place your order, so you can add more of those you like and none of the ones that you didn’t.
I also persuaded a colleague to join me in the 28 day diet and she also concurs with the Spaghetti Carbonara but loved the curries in particular, Korma was our favourite.
So far the last month, I have eaten well, had a varied diet of different tastes from around the world, saved myself a whole lot of money in the process and lost half a stone to boot! Would I recommend….you bet!

Well I am well into my third week now and I must say this is amazing value for money above anything else. The 28 day programme includes Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners and Snacks at just over £120 so just £4.28 per day. It has saved me a fortune but more importantly the meals are fantastic and I have lost 4lbs so far (nearly 2kgs).
Not all of the lunches are to my taste – Mushroom Soup for example is not my favourite – but the Tomato, Pea & Ham and Ham and Sweetcorn Chowder are really tasty. As is the Oxtail and Curried Parsnip.
Would I recommend it….you bet I would! Healty eating plan and weight loss programme!

Following the usual Christmas over-eating and weight gain, I am ready to take action. So after much research I signed up for Diet Chef calorie counted and portion controlled meals delivered to your home. With a choice of breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners, all for less than 1,200 calories per day.
I was so excited when my box was delivered to the office although the packaging didn’t make the meals look appetising. However the food is pre-cooked sous vide, which means it is fresh and doesn’t need refrigerating or freezing. The vacuum pack retains the goodness.
So far a muesli bar breakfast, carrot and coriander soup lunch, popcorn snack and macaroni cheese dinner have been eaten and much appreciated. Delicious and tasty. Admittedly the pasta was far from al dente but I love it that way, soft and easy to eat! In addition you can eat fruit, vegetables and/or salad.
Will keep you up-to-date with my progress…..start weight is an embarrassing 11st 2lbs, yikes!

The brilliant thing about soups is you can change them as you want – something hearty for an evening meal, a vegetable soup to use kitchen leftovers, or a slow cooked broth packed with beans and barley, for a complete meal that will warm you up in an instant. We’ve got one of each for you…
Soups are low in fat, filling and full of fibre and vitamins, essential for a healthy diet! For some FAB recipes follow the link below:

Most of us know we should include fibre in our diet, but as a nation we simply don’t eat enough of it.
Despite its many health benefits, which include reduced risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers, our average daily intake of fibre is just 18g – a third lower than the recommended 25g.
Under proposals from the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (who advise the Government), this target is likely to rise to 30g.
The trend for avoiding carbohydrates isn’t helping, says dietitian Sioned Quirke, a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association.
‘I see lots of people cutting down on carbohydrate foods, such as wholemeal bread and pasta, in an attempt to lose weight, but they jeopardise their health and increase their risk of constipation and bowel conditions such as diverticulitis (where the gut wall weakens) if they don’t eat other fibre sources,’ she said.
