Endermology

Endermology.

When legs feel and look heavy,  Endermology can help their appearance whilst you are on your weightloss regime and body transformation journey. 
Yes those are my legs...and this treatment helps me a lot.

It's a roller which is used over your body (whilst you wear a special body stocking). The action of the machine helps lymphatic drainage ( in fact cancer treatment patients have this treatment too to help their lymph drainage) 
It helps reduce cellulite, skin elasticity, skin tone and skin quality. 
A couple of sessions a week over a few months and then an occasional maintenance one definitely makes a difference.

National old headshot week.

Me from what seems a 100 years ago! 
We don't appreciate how we looked when we were young until we are older.

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.
