Our bodies change as we grow older

Our bodies change as we grow older.
Don't compare yourself to others. 
Or even to how you used to be.
Be yourself.
Be proud of how you are now.
No one is perfect.
Embrace your flaws. They are what make you 'you'.
Love what you see in the mirror.
Don't filter your photos.
Be real.
Be you.

“You look good for your age”

"You look good for your age" .
But what does age 64 look like?....
.
In the newspaper today the headline is "1 in 3 Britons admit they are guilty of ageism"

Maybe it's more how you feel about yourself....
.
This morning's swim in the sea made me feel good... both mentally and physically.

Thank you for all hundreds of likes for my last post

Thank you for all hundreds of likes for my last post.
I was not expecting so many.
.
If you saw this last bikini body post of mine please could you comment on the following: 
Did you like because..
I'm an older woman body-confident enough to wear a bikini?
Because I don't filter -what I post is the reality?
Because there were boobs!?
Because I looked ok?
Informative nutrition and lifestyle eating tips?
Because as a woman yourself I hopefully am inspiring you to be confident and not care what others say 
.
Please let me know your thoughts as I will adjust my posts accordingly.
.
Btw, This is my first home cooked lunch continuing on the same protein and good complex carbs eating regime.
Chicken breast pan sauteed in coconut oil.
Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.
.

What was my mother thinking? 
As we are having a heatwave I thought I'd post a childhood seaside photo of me Tb to Summer maybe 1960. 
This is me on the beach in the Isle of Wight (Sandown I think) . 
Not convinced about my mother's choice of my swimwear outfit! Sharks fin swim cap and an interesting style bikini bottom. .

On the Isle of Wight beach at Colwell Bay today with my first attempt at paddleboarding

On the Isle of Wight beach at Colwell Bay today with my first attempt at paddleboarding.
I've used a filter as I loved how it made the photo look more tropical but it was really hot and sunny with an amazing blue sky.
