Age 64 and body confident enough to still wear a bikini

Age 64 and body confident enough to still wear a bikini.
.
Whatever your bodyshape or size be confident in how you are naturally with no Insta filters.
.
Don't let people fat shame, body shame or make you feel bad about your body. .
We are all unique in our personalities, appearance and bodyshapes and that's what makes you special.
.
So although I had a 6lb weightloss after 7 nights @grayshottspa on the Health Regime it should not be about actual weight loss but more importantly about visceral body fat ( the fat that collects internally around your vital organs) which can lead to diabetes, heart disease and more.
.
So for an ongoing healthy lifestyle diet try to leave out:
Sugar 
Simple carbs ( all "white" foods such as bread, pastries, cakes, flour, potatoes, rice, pasta ) that turn into sugar
Fruits high in sugar ( grapes, bananas)
Fruit juices ( high in sugar even if fresh) 
Processed meats
Unhealthy processed cooking oils ( rapeseed, sunflower etc) 
Grains if you're sensitive to them
Milk
Low fat foods ( full fat best as our bodies need fat to feel fuller longer and to function well- especially the brain) .
.
Eat mainly :
( if you can)
Protein- organic eggs, poultry, grass fed beef, lamb, pork
Oily fish such as wild or organic salmon, herring, mackerel, tuna, sardines ( for Omega3) 
Organic leafy and colourful vegs, and a few root vegs.
Nuts and seeds ( non salted)
And full fat yoghurts ( Greek) and unpasteurised cheeses ( not if you're pregnant) 
And
Fermented foods such as Sauerkraut and Kefir. 
Good first press extra virgin Olive oil and coconut oil and good butter.
.
If you are Vegan or Vegetarian then obviously there is no meat or dairy but do check if your foods or dairy alternatives have high sugar content.

Last day Day #7 @grayshottspa

Last day
Day @grayshottspa .
First day in the gym with personal trainer John.
You will see my efforts in future posts...
A mix of HIIT and strengthening exercises particularly for the quads.
The glutes and hamstrings and core and are working well together from my pilates fitness..
.
And...
.
What was it that French man Jann Moix wrote today about women over 50 being too old to love? And that women in their 20s are the only ones worth dating.
Well I'm 64 and still going strong so he's talking a load of old tosh.

Pilates exercise for core stability and switching off over-active hip flexors

Pilates exercise for core stability and switching off over-active hip flexors. .
I can do this anywhere as it simply needs a theraband and 2 slightly deflated balls-one for under my bottom and the other for between my calves. .
