Good morning Monday

Good morning Monday.
Here's to a great week.
.
I'm wearing:
Zara dress (this season £19)!
And 
Debenhams Jacket (2018)
John Lewis Valentino Rockstud look-alike shoes (2018)
Whole outfit under £100 
.
Btw...
To all who look at others' Instaposts wishing that your life is as glamorous, colourful, fun, full of socialising and excitement - 
Most people's are not, Including my own. .
I'm not out every night, nor am I at the gym everyday. .
My posts are simply the parts of my life that I hope are interesting.
.
I hope to inspire with lifestyle tips of fashion, style, fitness, nutrition, health and beauty as a 64 year old woman with no filters or editing to show that you can be active, fit and enjoy life to the full whatever age you are. .

My wardrobe is eclectic and comprised of clothes bought randomly over many years

My wardrobe is eclectic and comprised of clothes bought randomly over many years.
.
How I chose to wear the mix of clothes each day depends on my mood.
Sometimes it's a baby pink day. 
It's whatever makes me feel good.
.
The moment I look at my choice of outfit and put it on, if it doesn't fill me with joy, then it's off with it straight away and a different outfit chosen. 
It doesn't have to be expensive, designer or even special.

But each outfit always has to flatter and fit my body shape and colouring.
Make me feel good the moment I put it on.
And 
Most importantly...
Love what I see in the mirror as a whole
with no judgement or critique of my body.
.
No one is perfect.
Imperfections are what make me and you unique and special.
.
Next week is mental health week 
And I will be discussing positive body image
In three public speaking engagements.

Reformer Pilates

Reformer Pilates.

Often an exercise needs subtle postural tweaks or alignments to be performed correctly and effectively. .
Small corrections can make all the difference to feeling the right muscles engaging and working properly.
.
It's very easy to often think you're doing an exercise as it should be done, but in fact be cheating yourself as a slightly incorrect stance or body placement won't be using the specific targeted muscle or set of muscles for the movement. .
Here I'm trying to keep the back straight, hips square, core engaged, abs and glutes switched on, and the knee tracking correctly over the ankle and foot on the standing leg.
