When you get up at 6

When you get up at 6.00am in the morning for a 7am Pilates reformer class...... .
.
.
Upper body strength exercises have always been the most difficult ones for me.  Improvement is slowly happening and pikes, planks and a variety of shoulder girdle and arm exercises are becoming less of a struggle the longer I persevere.
.
Using core, glutes, lower abs and in fact all body to support and control. .

The Summer wardrobe is finally having an airing this week

The Summer wardrobe is finally having an airing this week.
.
Summer has arrived in London at the same time as my busiest fun week of the year.
.
It makes a change to wear real clothes instead of daily fitness kit lycra which everyone walks around London in, even if they're not going to the gym.
.
Girls night out with Marcia McCabe at my cousin Russ Kane's pre-Edinburgh festival warm up gig at the Albany pub, London. .
Wearing halter neck silk top and limited edition customised jeans from Zara ( summer 2018) and vintage denim jacket.
.
I can remember a newspaoer article a while ago saying at what age are you too old to wear jeans? .
I say never too old.

My old body feels and moves so much better when I do a minimum of 1 Pilates class a week

My old body feels and moves so much better when I do a minimum of 1 Pilates class a week. .
3 classes would be optimum but when both work and social life is busy, it's difficult to fit everything in and motivation to get up at 6am for a 7am class is less strong after a few consecutive nights out and just a glass or two of rose. ......
.
Reformer Pilates Scissors exercise using only one strap at a time for core stability, abs and hip flexors.
.
Making sure that the hips stay still, back stays in neutral and lower abs and glutes remain switched on. .

Difficult to know what to wear when the weather changes from hot and muggy to cold and rain and you’re sitting outside the restaurant for dinner

The way forward seems to be mixing Summer and Winter wardrobes.

Been off grid for a week as I dropped my phone and the screen broke even with all bumpers and protection

£220 later for Samsung S9+ screen/whole frame replacement ( and that was one of the cheaper quotes) I'm now catching up.
.
So...
Never too old to love a live music gig..
Especially when it's a mother and daughter girls night out. Fleetwood Mac at Wembley.
