Found my perfect spot at home to do more ‘live’ chats

Found my perfect spot at home to do more 'live' chats.
.
Will do another chat , Q&A towards the end of the week with Nesse
@nesseinlondon (Fitness/nutrition/sarcasm) 
in advance of our joint class on Monday. .
The class will be aimed at all ages young and old- she is young and I am old. 
.
Whilst Nesse instructs and demos, I will be sharing the class with her onscreen as her pupil - adapting some of the exercises for those who are older or less fit. .
We will also be focussing on re-aligning our posture and spinal mobility from so many hours spent sitting in front of screens.
.
Nesse is a great instructor and irreverant and funny with her chat 
Hope you can join us.
The next class is 10am Monday morning.
Please do let us know if there's another time of the day you would prefer. 
Maybe evening - 6pm - better for you? .
The website to book in for the next zoom class is at:

Small steps

Small steps.
.
When life is tough don't give up.
It's easy in January to make all those unrealistic  resolutions and set yourself up to fail.
.
So start your journey with small steps.
A step by step change of thinking.
.
It could be that you want to:
Change your life.
Become fitter, healthier.
It could be anything........
.
Start each day when you wake up to be grateful for 3 things in your life. That way the day will begin  on a positive note.
.
Remove any negativity and replace with positivity and the possibilities of what you can achieve with each of those small steps.
.
Be the master of your own destiny.

When you get up at 6

When you get up at 6.00am in the morning for a 7am Pilates reformer class...... .
.
.
Upper body strength exercises have always been the most difficult ones for me.  Improvement is slowly happening and pikes, planks and a variety of shoulder girdle and arm exercises are becoming less of a struggle the longer I persevere.
.
Using core, glutes, lower abs and in fact all body to support and control. .
