Chilling with @missmollysmusings After a Qi Gong class

Chilling with @missmollysmusings 
After a Qi Gong class.
.
Qi Gong is a centurires-old Chinese mind-body spirit practice that can improve mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement and breathing.
.
I like to vary the types of exercise I do, from the meditative to the body-aligning and strengthening to the aerobic. .

Every so often we need to take time out away from social media

Our Instagram posts show the glossy, happy sides of our lives. Even with no filters on our photos, we still carefully edit what we put out into the public domain. .

I only want to inspire and motivate with positive messages and images. 
Showing how to be age proud at 65 years old, have body confidence, live a healthy and active lifestyle, have good mental health and that it's never too late to try anything new.

Age 64.
.
Its important to stay flexible as you grow older.
.
Not necessarily as flexible as myself as I have hyper-mobility which is not a good thing so I have to be careful to not over-stretch.
Especially as I had a hip resurface ( like Andy Murray) a few years ago.
.
However exercising, stretching and moving every day, even if its just a 20 min dog walk will make a difference to your body, how you feel and also your mental health.

It’s never too late

It's never too late...
.
To take up paddleboarding.
.
This was the first day after the whole of this Summer that we took out the paddle board.
.
Very wobbly in spite of core strengthening pilates classes twice a week throughout the Summer and a 121 boxing session each week.
.
Maybe it was the volume of food consumed over the last few weeks 
Or
@misslucy_lou pacing up and down the board. .

Pilates reformer fitness Thursday

Pilates reformer fitness Thursday.
.
This particular exercise is so much harder than it looks.
.
It depends on a strong glute med, good turn out from the hip and core stability, .
I found it hard to do as I had a left hip resurface op a few years ago ( the same op as @andymurray has just had) and also tore the glute med subsequently.
.
So the mechanics of how my left hip works, together with the hip flexors and glutes are not as they were before. Also at the age of 64 the body is slightly more worn now! .
But with hard work its possible to aspire to be the best you can be.

#tbfriday This time last year! Looking forward to skating again @natural_history_museum skating rink London

This time last year!

It's such fun and a good cardio, core and glute workout. You need to use your core together with your glutes for balance, strength and to keep upright.
.
I do look quite serious but I'm properly concentrating on not only trying not to fall over myself but also on not knocking over any small children or even adults skating around holding onto their penguins for support.
.
Have a good Friday! What are you doing that's out of your comfort zone this weekend? .
