The song is "Best friend's ass"
 by Paris Hilton.

Love love love it

So much more fun, joyful and inspiring to watch than Instagram posts of those perfect filtered bodies, glutes and squats.

My wardrobe is eclectic and comprised of clothes bought randomly over many years

My wardrobe is eclectic and comprised of clothes bought randomly over many years.
.
How I chose to wear the mix of clothes each day depends on my mood.
Sometimes it's a baby pink day. 
It's whatever makes me feel good.
.
The moment I look at my choice of outfit and put it on, if it doesn't fill me with joy, then it's off with it straight away and a different outfit chosen. 
It doesn't have to be expensive, designer or even special.

But each outfit always has to flatter and fit my body shape and colouring.
Make me feel good the moment I put it on.
And 
Most importantly...
Love what I see in the mirror as a whole
with no judgement or critique of my body.
.
No one is perfect.
Imperfections are what make me and you unique and special.
.
Next week is mental health week 
And I will be discussing positive body image
In three public speaking engagements.

Reformer Pilates

Often an exercise needs subtle postural tweaks or alignments to be performed correctly and effectively. .
Small corrections can make all the difference to feeling the right muscles engaging and working properly.
.
It's very easy to often think you're doing an exercise as it should be done, but in fact be cheating yourself as a slightly incorrect stance or body placement won't be using the specific targeted muscle or set of muscles for the movement. .
Here I'm trying to keep the back straight, hips square, core engaged, abs and glutes switched on, and the knee tracking correctly over the ankle and foot on the standing leg.

Feeling good

Feeling good... three days ago to Bank Holiday Monday beach walk.
.
Wearing my favourite pair of limited edition embroidered @zara jeans ( past season) 
Cashmere sweater @marksandspencer ( past season) .
Walking 20 minutes every day at a brisk pace helps keep a healthy heart and the circulation moving and the digestion working. Exercise, especially outdoors, also helps release that 'happy-feeling-good' hormone seratonin.
.
Try to have some 'me time' every day and do something that brings joy and happiness into your life. .

Good morning

Good morning. Good Friday 
.
My happy place by the sea with dogs @misslucy_lou and family for Easter weekend.
.
This picture was taken by my daughter on our morning dog walk after 4 days of the 5 day Prolon intermittent fast-mimicking 1000 calorie a day diet plan. My daughter commented I was looking significantly slimmer. I don't know how much weight I've lost as I prefer to not weigh as I don't believe obsessing with weight or calories is a healthy mindset.
.
The scientifically researched mix of vitamin supplements together with the packeted vegan soups, nut and cocoa bars and fresh olives were actually really tasty and quite easy to manage for 5 days without feeling faint or too hungry or deprived. I do like my food.  .
Prolon do caution no exercise during this period, however I did have a yoga class and dog walks and was fine. .
Intermittent fasting is how I live day to day always leaving 12 hours after my last meal to my first of the following day. And when I can, 2 consecutive days a week, leaving 16-18 hours overnight ( an early supper, no breakfast, late lunch) . Not difficult. .
So these 5 days mimicked this way of eating but with reduced calorific intake. Much the same as the Michael Mosely 1000 cal a day eating plan for helping to reverse type 2 diabetes.
.
Happy Easter everyone.
I'm now looking forward to family Easter weekend with proper meals which are still healthy and also a bite or two or three of a dark chocolate Easter egg.

Testing core strength

Testing core strength.
Think it's part of Pilates "Teasers".

Trying to sit up as tall as possible whilst keeping the back as straight as possible too.

It's hard
