Loved Ice skating at the Isle of Wight rink before it closed down over a year ago

Loved Ice skating at the Isle of Wight rink before it closed down over a year ago. This is one of my efforts from then and before my weightloss journey too.
Lots of open air Christmas rinks open now.
Will post my recent effort at the Natiral History Museum later today.
Its great exercise for core stability and glutes. 
Also a sense of achievement the longer one stays upright!

In the Pilates studio

In the Pilates studio.

Lunges with your weight on an unstable base.
This helps all the muscles and core engage from your balancing foot ankle and leg to your core and glutes and tum.

However...on another level
It has just been suggested to me by my hip surgeon that anyone like me who has had a hip re-surface surgery procedure and has metal on metal in their hip -this could be having adverse effects as the flexion movement on the weight bearing leg can cause the metal on metal to rub more than usual.
Metal on metal hip replacements and resurfaces can cause metal ions (cobalt and chromium) to leak into the blood stream and give metal ion readings in the blood above normal levels. This could  cause future health issues.

Back in the Pilates Reformer studio One leg in table top, the other doing straight leg raises to the highest point that stretches the ham strings too

Back in the Pilates Reformer studio

One leg in table top, the other doing straight leg raises to the highest point that stretches the ham strings too. All the time keeping the hips stable, core engaged and spine in neutral-not flat to the reformer.
