This one is to strengthen the quadraceps to help support the knee joint and stop the hip flexors doing all the work. .
Hip flexors can take over if the quadraceps are weak, especially after hip resurfacing surgery.

With Dr Michael Mosley

With Dr Michael Mosley.
Creator and author of the 5:2 diet and brand The Fast 800.
How to combine rapid weight loss and intermittent fasting for long term health.
.
Here I am at his talk, Q&A and launch of his new book and diet regime for good gut health and reduction of both external fat/weight and internal visceral fat surrounding the organs. This can reverse Type 2 Diabetes and many other lifestyle illnesses.
.
This style of eating with intermittent fasting is similar to how I live and eat, and teach my clients to eat. .
I personally choose to have a 12 hour fast overnight into the following day with 2 days a week of 16/18 hours overnight fasting. 
I dont restrict my own calories unless it's after Christmas or after lots of partying or entertaining. 
I do like my food and I like to enjoy life. .
It's a very easy regime to follow and continue as a lifestyle choice -NOT a faddy diet.
.
It works! 
Apparently Hugh Jackman and Aiden Turner both follow this healthy eating plan too

It's important to always stretch before any exercise.
.
.
But check with your personal trainer that you're stretching correctly as this pose is slightly exaggerated for the purposes of this pic. The more you can bring your hip forward and align the knees the better the stretch.

Back in day

Back in day.....
Circa 1970s
Wearing Kenzo.
.

It's a shame that our younger selves don't appreciate or realise how good we look at the time and beat ourselves up wanting to be an improved version. Slimmer, curvier, longer legs, bigger boobs etc etc.
.
Love yourself and love what you see in the mirror as you are now.
Accept your imperfections. They are what make you unique. .
Be confident in who you are. 
Confidence is sexy.

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.

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.
