Good morning, everyone. I was expecting a frost this morning but we seem to have escaped it. However, it is exceedingly cold with a very keen breeze coming off the field over the road. I am very thankful for my warm home and a day when I don't have to go out much.
I enjoyed yesterday's early morning shop. My list was short, mostly fruit and veg, and wandering round the shops early morning is quite a pleasure at the moment. Oddly, very little actually tempts me, but it's nice to see what's there and, maybe, get ideas.
I was, however, tempted by the fact that Aldi has their usual snowman loo paper in and, as it tends to sell very quickly, I got some as I do every year when I can.
Then I came home, put it all away and settled down in front of the PC for my first ever Goldster session which was about emotional eating. I though it was good, well presented and informative although I don't think I learned anything new except that in the wider scheme of things I'm really doing quite well. I don't go off track all that often nowadays.
Then it was all change and off to Lindsey's for my hour of personal training which I really did enjoy. I'm not terribly fond of the exercise cycle but I do enjoy the cross trainer and I love the weight and stretching elements. I always leave feeling energised and happy. More than worth every single penny.
After such a busy morning, I was able to rest in the afternoon. I caught half of another Goldster session which I wasn't so impressed with, mainly because it was a cooking demo and the lady showed very poor kitchen hygiene which rather put me off.
There's three things in the diary today.
Firstly I will be popping over to Chris' home for our weekly coffee and chat.
Then Beth has the afternoon off work so is popping round after lunch for more coffee.
Finally, I'd like to watch two Goldsters sessions (making the most of my month's free trial), one being a 'life coach and well being' session and the other entitled 'how to move to age well'.
Of the latter, I have missed the first session but, if this one is helpful, I will try to attend the others too. A lot depends on the presenter really.
Here's what's on offer:
25 Nov 2021 - How to move to age well
2 Dec 2021 - The importance of sleep
9 Dec 2021 - How to stay engaged
16 Dec 2021 - Creating an age-well environment
23 Dec 2021 - How to age well at Christmas
I know Eileen does but does anyone else use these online sessions (not necessarily Goldster, any ones)? What do you think of them?
