Pilates exercise for core stability and switching off over-active hip flexors

Pilates exercise for core stability and switching off over-active hip flexors. .
I can do this anywhere as it simply needs a theraband and 2 slightly deflated balls-one for under my bottom and the other for between my calves. .

Its the weekend and sometimes you just have to!

However I only kept the bun on the burger for the purposes of this photo 
And then.... I removed it.
.
.
If I'm going to have a carb treat with yummy thrice-cooked chips
then I would never have a 2nd loading of carbs with the burger bun. .
One portion of simple carbs (not the healthier option of complex carbs) is plenty!  Simple carbs such as bread, pastries, cakes, pasta etc give a sugar spike to your blood sugar levels giving you an energy high and then a rapid low.
.
.
So here we have a yummy healthy home-made beefburger, ( minus bun) gherkin, slice of cheese, bacon, fried onions, salad, and home-cooked fries. 
Thank you @hungrybear.tk delish! .

Healthy breakfasts dont need to be boring and can be attractively plated and colourful

Healthy breakfasts dont need to be boring and can be attractively plated and colourful. .
Organic scrambled eggs, organic streaky bacon, smashed avocado with chillis, wilted spinach, roasted sweet potato. .
If you make each plate of food appealing, it can help you regulate portion control and also create each meal to be a more sensory total experience. Always eat and focus on what you're eating rather than watching TV or reading. It's not good to eat on the move. The brain won't register you have eaten and you will remain hungry.
.
Eating with mindfulness can help remind the brain to send a timely message to the stomach when you are actually full.  This will stop you binge eating or over-eating and help you to to maintain an optimum healthy weight.

Not a fashion statement but a Universal Contour Wrap treatment

Not a fashion statement but a Universal Contour Wrap treatment. .
Bandaged up like a mummy with detoxifying clay impregnated bandages.
Then wrapped in a heated blanket wearing the stylish vinyl space age silver suit for 45 minutes whilst the 'magic' takes effect.
.
The treatment guarantees a collective inch loss of 6" that can last a couple of days.
Apparently no bathing or showering that same day so the effects of the wrap stay.
.
However as we all know all treatments can vary in their effectiveness and most treatments need a course of at least 3 or 4 treatments to be most effective.
.
However this is a quick fix and can help if you want to look and feel your best for a special occasion. 
You obviously need to also be eating sensibly and drink lots of water that same day. . .
.
@xreetsx thank you for the treatment and lovely head massage too.

If you take on the challenges that life offers you, they can take you to exciting places

If you take on the challenges that life offers you, they can take you to exciting places.
.
When life offers you an opportunity outside your comfort zone seize it with both hands and go for it.
.
I have just done this. .
Many of my age would not. I'm 64.  They would say " You're brave, I wouldn't do this, but well done." .
Watch this space. .
I am going to be part of an exciting campaign that is something I would never have considered doing a few years ago. .
I'm braver now and I have to walk the walk and talk the talk if I am going to inspire and bang on about positive body image, confidence and being yourself whatever age, shape or size you are with no filters. .
Be bold. Be brave. Be you.
