Still keeping supple at age 64

Still keeping supple at age 64.

Not necessarily the most flattering position but hey... at least the body is still mobile, even with the left hip re-surfaced a few years ago and various other injuries.
.
For my fitness regime I try to do Pilates, mat or reformer, 3 times a week. Anything else is in addition or if I can't get to a Pilates class.
.
My Pilates posts aren't always real time so don't believe I am a fitness fanatic and exercising every single day - I'm not! .
If I'm in the Isle of Wight I love to horse ride on the beach.
.
I also do occasional dance classes which can help memory as well as fitness, as  concentration is needed to remember routines.
.
Boxing mixed with HIIT in the gym is great for cardio and fat burning and also concentration as I dont want to be punched on the nose

No make up, no filter selfie

This month's fresh haircut. As we age a good haircut is so important to help flatter, frame and lift the face.
And
This month's improved wrinkly skin texture after 4 sessions so far of BDR facial treatments which are still ongoing once a fortnight to get optimum results. I will show a before and after when I'm further on in the course of treatments.

And in case you're wondering why the trainer called me Bella? He was talking to my daughter Bella who was training with me! .

As with all my Instagram posts I hope to demonstrate that no-one including myself is perfect in real life.
.
But we can all do our best, work towards being our best versions of ourselves ( without edits or Instagram filters), whatever age, bodyshape or size we are.

A French website @aufeminin has written the nicest article about my Instafeed and how, as a 64 year old woman, I’m helping other women to be body confident and happy in their own skin

A French website @aufeminin has written the nicest article about my Instafeed and how, as a 64 year old woman, I'm helping other women to be body confident and happy in their own skin. .
I created my Instagram to inspire and help women of all ages to be body positive and non-judgemental or super-critical of themselves or others. .
And to see what we look like with no filters.. .
No one is perfect. But we can all be the best versions of ourselves wrinkles, warts and all- everything that makes each of us unique.
.
C'est flatteur de recevoir ces critiques. Merci.
And thank you to all my new French followers. .
