    we did 3 winter's without heating down in the deep south whilst we were building our last house. hot water bottles. decent clothes. hot showers. i would put the fire under the bath outside and heat it up and jump in. well after taking the fire out from under the bath or i would burn my ass. i also used to take the kids to the beach on still nights and make a fire. that was the nicest bit. just us and the waves in the darkness with a big warm fire. we'd run around and play lots to keep warm. ah.. sigh.. those were the days LOL

    Good ideas there seas. I've just been writing my next 6 months worth of health topics for our newsletters, and one of the topics was 'winter wise' and another 'keeping warm and active in winter', so maybe its time to take some of my own advice. Things like eating lots of soups and stews and drinking warm drinks, snuggling on the sofa with a SO under a blankie, putting on clothes straight out of the drier, tai chi, stretches, wheat bags - all can be done without using the heating. Still I'll look like the bad mum if I keep sending the kids to school in shorts and jandals!

    If you read his book, he says NOT to do the handstand pushups or the bridging until you are on the 6th progression of the other 4 exercises.... so wise move on your part! lol
