Its important to stay flexible as you grow older.
.
Not necessarily as flexible as myself as I have hyper-mobility which is not a good thing so I have to be careful to not over-stretch.
Especially as I had a hip resurface ( like Andy Murray) a few years ago.
.
However exercising, stretching and moving every day, even if its just a 20 min dog walk will make a difference to your body, how you feel and also your mental health.

Punching my way into the weekend

Punching my way into the weekend.

And in case you're wondering why the trainer called me Bella? He was talking to my daughter Bella who was training with me! .

Healthy low carb and protein post workout breakfast

Healthy low carb and protein post workout breakfast.

Scrambled eggs with organic butter, wilted spinach, and smashed avocado on seeded multigrain  toast. A nutritious breakfast to keep you feeling fuller longer with less blood sugar highs and lows. 
12 hours since last meal and this 1st meal of the day to help digestion.
I start the day with warm lemon water and then a small swig of Kefir with a liquid multi-vitamin mixed in with it.  All fermented foods help to promote good gut health.

Morning PT HIIT workout

Morning PT HIIT workout. 
Monday morning training with a mix of boxing, agility and core exercises.

As you can see from the video clip I'm not the best in fast side to side movements due to past injury restrictions and an element of caution!
(hip resurface and torn glute med 3 years ago,  and injured knee ligaments this March) 
However at 63 I am grateful to be fit and able to do everything I want to do from pilates and dance classes to horse riding,and paddleboarding. .
