A regime morning @grayshottspa

A regime morning @grayshottspa . 
Breaking the 5:2 fast with breakfast of spiced cured salmon with avocado and butter bean houmous ( no coffee)! Yummy and super healthy with omega 3 and good fats.

A swim in the indoor pool, a plunge in the very cold but invigorating icy plunge pool after a steam room. All fitted in befire a 16 minute  hydrotherapy bath with Epsom salts which are great for magnesium, detoxification and relaxation.

Lunch is a buternut, chilli and lime soup followed by cold salmon with green baby pea shoots, a walnut dip and a designer swoosh of pureed beetroot. Accompanied with a rainbow mix of vegetables for vits ACE and zinc with their health giving benefits as antioxidants.

Of course digestive bitters and sauerkraut to start to get those digestive juices working for good gut health and a few soaked mixed nuts (and some olives) for their good fats.

So as you can see a Grayshott regime is by no means a starvation diet and there is still a 2 course dinner later after a pilates class.

No grains, no sugar, no milk, 
but simply protein, healthy fats,  vegetables,, fibre, nuts and fermented foods all helping the body to become its optimum best with a healthy functioning gut.

So after a ‘fast” yesterday of no breakfast, a substantial lunch, then bone broth for dinner

So after a 'fast'' yesterday of no breakfast, a substantial lunch, then bone broth for dinner... Today is back to 3 full meals around exercise, treatments and relaxation.
Creamy scrambled eggs with button mushrooms and chives for brekky after a brisk early morning walk on the heath.
Mid morning liver detox  is a warm castor oil pack placed over the liver area (the 2nd of these treatments) 
Lunch (I'm stuffed now)! Is lentil and roasted tomato soup and then Thai Green Curry with a side of mixed vegetables (various greens vegs and onions)
Nap time next and then maybe a yoga class or a swim with possible energising very speedy immersion in the icy plunge pool.

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!

Studio reformer Pilates This seated “froggy plie” exercise is to help core stability, hip flexors, all leg muscles

Studio reformer Pilates 
This seated "froggy plie" exercise is to help core stability, hip flexors, all leg muscles. The important bit is is to try and keep the back straight, tummy muscles engaged and the plie movements as smooth as possible. Its more difficult than it looks.

Back in the pilates studio This exercise engages core, helps spinal mobility, hip flexors, balance, gluteals and flexibility

It is much harder than it looks as it also requires the reformer to be held out and stay in place and still whilst bending over and twisting
