Crab and courgette spaghetti with chilli and rocket

Crab and courgette spaghetti with chilli and rocket.

Crabmeat with spiralized or courgette strips with spaghetti, olive oil, lemon juice and chillies and rocket leaves.

Mixing spaghetti with courgettes and leaves helps the dish become more nutritionally balanced and to last longer as fuel for  your body.

Courgettes and leaves are healthy low carb foods and crab is protein. Less heathy processed white flour foods such as pasta are carbs which are processed by the body turning quickly into sugar. 
When pasta is only eaten in a small quantity and mixed with healthy options it helps slow down the blood sugar high and low caused by high glycaemic food such as pasta and other refined white flour foods.

What to wear when it’s Winter yesterday and Summer today? Pasty white legs? Winter body? Summer clothes not yet fully unpacked? Is it cold? Is it hot? Is it sunny or pouring with rain? Could the answer be an ankle length dress, biker jacket and trainers?

Me from what seems a 100 years ago! 
We don't appreciate how we looked when we were young until we are older.

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.

2nd exercise following on from hip flexor stretch using the foam roller

2nd exercise following on from hip flexor stretch using the foam roller.

Basic table top toe taps to engage the core,  glutes and lower abdominals.
Using the foam roller in this position can help stop the hip flexors coming into action too when the core is still weak.

Today's physio pilates rehab exercise.
Simple and so effective.
Sometimes when getting back to full strength less can be more.
A few repetitions correctly executed before your muscles tire again can be more efficient than loads of repetitions incorrectly done. .
