Lemon and ginger in hot water to start the day.

If you're adding Manuka or raw honey, make sure the water is warm,  not boiling or too hot as it changes the healing properties of the raw honey.
Ginger is great to help reduce inflammation and lemon is a blood purifier, cleanser and can strengthen the immune system.

Sometimes when you fancy an instant homemade curry

Sometimes when you fancy an instant homemade curry.

Found this packet curry soup in the Health food shop which had all natural ingredients, no additives wheat or sugar and was properly delicious. 
I simply added boiled water to the powder. 
It had turmeric, cumin and chiĺli, all excellent anti-inflammatory spices and great for health and weight loss.
To make the soup more of a substantial supper I added some cauliflower, broccoli and spinach and cashew nuts.

Fast day today

Fast day today.

This doesnt mean starvation however as it's all about leaving a space of time between last meal and next and also reducing the amount of food in a day as in 5:2 diet.

This is bone broth boiled for over 12 hours with chopped carrots, parsley and courgettes.

Lunch today is in the following post.

Good gut health is important for your whole health and wellbeing

Good gut health is important for your whole health and wellbeing.

A healthy gut supports your immune system, your body's response to stress and how your body responds to the food you eat.

Fermented foods such as Sauerkraut eaten before a meal help trigger the digestive processes. As do digestive bitters or a tablespoon of organic raw apple cider vinegar.
This can also help acid reflux problems.

Lunges with your weight on an unstable base.
This helps all the muscles and core engage from your balancing foot ankle and leg to your core and glutes and tum.

However...on another level
It has just been suggested to me by my hip surgeon that anyone like me who has had a hip re-surface surgery procedure and has metal on metal in their hip -this could be having adverse effects as the flexion movement on the weight bearing leg can cause the metal on metal to rub more than usual.
Metal on metal hip replacements and resurfaces can cause metal ions (cobalt and chromium) to leak into the blood stream and give metal ion readings in the blood above normal levels. This could  cause future health issues.

20 secs plank hold
Today's fitness. 
Tryig to keep body line as straight as possible, engaging core and glutes. Can't hold for long as lack of strength in damaged shoulder rotator cuff which is still being treeated by physio to strengthen surrounding support muscles. Its taking a long time.

Morning training with some cross squats for core strength, stability and glutes

More difficult than it looks when done correctly. So I'm looking very serious and still slightly wobbly.
Dog @misslucy_lou not looking too impressed by my efforts either.
