Confidence.
Shows in your body language, however you feel inside.
.
How you stand.
How you walk.
How you hold your head.
Make all the difference to how others perceive you.

Pilates reformer fitness Thursday

Pilates reformer fitness Thursday.
.
This particular exercise is so much harder than it looks.
.
It depends on a strong glute med, good turn out from the hip and core stability, .
I found it hard to do as I had a left hip resurface op a few years ago ( the same op as @andymurray has just had) and also tore the glute med subsequently.
.
So the mechanics of how my left hip works, together with the hip flexors and glutes are not as they were before. Also at the age of 64 the body is slightly more worn now! .
But with hard work its possible to aspire to be the best you can be.

Eat Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Queen

Eat Breakfast like a King, 
Lunch like a Queen. 
Dinner like a Pauper.

My breakfast here was eaten late morning and was a 2 organic egg omelette with spinach and Gruyere cheese (a brand made with raw cow's milk for gut health).
.
Nutritional science helping our bodies function best evolves all the times with new findings. .
Breakfast doesn't have to be 1st thing in the morning but at least 12 hours after your last meal of the day. This could mean that if you ate last at 8pm then your breakfast is anytime from 8am again.  If you are following an intermittent 16/18 fasting regime (2 consecutive days a week), then your breakfast would be around midday to 2pm. .
Then your subsequent 2 or 3 meals can  be squeezed into an 8 hour window. .
