My home-cooked meat-free veggie Bank Holiday weekend cooked breakfast

My home-cooked meat-free veggie Bank Holiday weekend cooked breakfast.

Eggs from the local farm shop chickens, seeded wholemeal bread from the Island Bakery with rather a generous spread of organic butter, wilted spinach, beef tomato slices, avocado and mushrooms.

I always eat breakfast or brunch straight after working out, or doing any fitness or exercise.  Healthy mix of carbs and protein and good fats. .

2 more of my age 50plus ladies Styled by me for the @lookfabforever TV commercial. "Act the age you feel" is the look on the left and
"No olds barred" on the right.
When you reach age 50 and beyond don't become invisible by dressing to fade into the background.
Be bold with colour and design but always dress to flatter your bodyshape.

Another protein and low carb breakfast idea

Another protein and low carb breakfast idea.

Scrambled eggs with spinach, avocado and tomatoes. You could leave a 12 hours interval before you eat your breakfast,  after your last meal the eve before.  This gives your digestion a chance to rest. 16-18 hours is an optimum gap if you're on a weight loss journey. On 2 consecutive days for the best result.

Spinach, avocado and tomatoes are all good slow release carbs eaten together with the protein of the eggs.  Tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene which has been linked to many health benefits including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They also contain Vit C and Vit K.

Modified side plank exercise

Modified side plank exercise.

This is an easier version of the plank. 
This is a good alternative plank strengthening exercise, especially after a knee injury as there is no pressure or strain on the knees holding in this position when the core or glutes and hamstrings are still weak.

Pilates hover exercise

Pilates hover exercise.

This exercise can be the precurser to a plank. It engages the glutes, core, and deep abdominals.  The back has to be straight and the head aligned. It's harder than it looks to keep the back in line and shoulders down and not curve the back upwards when raising and holding the hover position.

Good morning Monday.

Body positive.

Look in the mirror and love all of what you see.  The best bits and those bits you dont like so much.  No one's perfect. Don't believe everything you see on others' social media. 
Be the best version of yourself you can be.

Healthy low carb and protein fishy lunch by the sea

Healthy low carb and protein fishy lunch by the sea.

Prawns and smoked salmon on a bed of leaves with cucumber,  olives, tomatoes and avocado.
A light dressing of creme fraiche and herbs. 
Smoked salmon and prawns are both goods ources of Omega 3 fatty acids and unsaturated fat. Unsaturated fats can help improve your blood cholesterol levels when you eat them in place of saturated orctrans fats. Omega 3 can reduce inflammation and reduce risk of heart disease.

It's important to find time for yourself- even 5 minutes- however busy you are with your work, your family, your chores, your day to day life. 
If you don't look after you who else is going to? .
