Another protein and low carb breakfast idea

Another protein and low carb breakfast idea.

Scrambled eggs with spinach, avocado and tomatoes. You could leave a 12 hours interval before you eat your breakfast,  after your last meal the eve before.  This gives your digestion a chance to rest. 16-18 hours is an optimum gap if you're on a weight loss journey. On 2 consecutive days for the best result.

Spinach, avocado and tomatoes are all good slow release carbs eaten together with the protein of the eggs.  Tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene which has been linked to many health benefits including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They also contain Vit C and Vit K.

Modified side plank exercise

Modified side plank exercise.

This is an easier version of the plank. 
This is a good alternative plank strengthening exercise, especially after a knee injury as there is no pressure or strain on the knees holding in this position when the core or glutes and hamstrings are still weak.

Pilates hover exercise

Pilates hover exercise.

This exercise can be the precurser to a plank. It engages the glutes, core, and deep abdominals.  The back has to be straight and the head aligned. It's harder than it looks to keep the back in line and shoulders down and not curve the back upwards when raising and holding the hover position.

2nd exercise following on from hip flexor stretch using the foam roller

2nd exercise following on from hip flexor stretch using the foam roller.

Basic table top toe taps to engage the core,  glutes and lower abdominals.
Using the foam roller in this position can help stop the hip flexors coming into action too when the core is still weak.

Good morning Monday

Good morning Monday.

Body positive.

Look in the mirror and love all of what you see.  The best bits and those bits you dont like so much.  No one's perfect. Don't believe everything you see on others' social media. 
Be the best version of yourself you can be.

Basic mat pilates rehab with a band for glutes, core and hamstrings strengthening

Basic mat pilates rehab with a band for glutes, core and hamstrings strengthening.

Lie on your side 
Tie the band into a loop on one end and attach it around your foot.
Pull taut.
Lengthen through the top hip.
Draw your leg in 
Then back and straight
 and bring it back with control.
The better the leg position when straightened in line with the body and slightly back, the more you will feel the effect in your glutes of this exercise.
