Training today Its all about the core

Training today
Its all about the core.

This exercise helps improve core stability. It's important to try to keep the hips equally aligned, the back in line with the leg and arm and not wobble!  Head and neck should also be aligned with the back not looking up or down. Mine I've noticed is slightly too raised.

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.

Quick healthy homecooking

Quick healthy homecooking. When you're time-poor and wanting to keep on your healthy eating protein and low carb regime, an all-in-one tray bake is the way forward. Chicken thighs, cauliflower, carrots , red onions, butternut squash, garlic.. With a little coconut butter. Yummy! The broccoli was boiled for a few minutes as an additional green vegetable.

Core and leg toning workout at barre class

Core and leg toning workout at barre class.
Working the glutes, the inner thighs, the outer thighs, calves in plie position.

Working in plie and on the toes adds extra difficulty and effort to retain stability. It's important to hold the core and to keep the upper body as straight and pulled up as much as possible.

From my garden to dinner table

From my garden to dinner table.
Home grown artichokes and rhubarb.

Artichokes are a versatile food, and although some would consider them a vegetable, they are a thistle! 
For nutritional purposes, they are primarily consumed due their associated benefits of protecting against various forms of cancer, bolstering immune system strength, lowering cholesterol, and protect against diseases such as diabetes, artherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke. Artichokes have also long been famous for detoxifying the body and improving the health of the liver, and aiding in digestive issues like indigestion, constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and diarrhea. Furthermore, this miraculous little thistle can reduce blood pressure, eliminate hangovers, and stimulate urination.

How to cook?
Trim each of the pointy edges off the leaves.
Test if boiled long enough and tender by seeing if a leaf can be pulled off easily.

Serve with melted butter or olive oil, salt,pepper and lemon juice.
The heart is the best part once you have pulled off and eaten all the leaves. Be careful to remove the prickly hairs protecting the heart section before eating.

The rhubarb can be roasted with no water for about 10mins and served with full fat greek yoghurt and a teaspoon of honey.
