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. .

Good morning

Good morning. Good Friday 
.
My happy place by the sea with dogs @misslucy_lou and family for Easter weekend.
.
This picture was taken by my daughter on our morning dog walk after 4 days of the 5 day Prolon intermittent fast-mimicking 1000 calorie a day diet plan. My daughter commented I was looking significantly slimmer. I don't know how much weight I've lost as I prefer to not weigh as I don't believe obsessing with weight or calories is a healthy mindset.
.
The scientifically researched mix of vitamin supplements together with the packeted vegan soups, nut and cocoa bars and fresh olives were actually really tasty and quite easy to manage for 5 days without feeling faint or too hungry or deprived. I do like my food.  .
Prolon do caution no exercise during this period, however I did have a yoga class and dog walks and was fine. .
Intermittent fasting is how I live day to day always leaving 12 hours after my last meal to my first of the following day. And when I can, 2 consecutive days a week, leaving 16-18 hours overnight ( an early supper, no breakfast, late lunch) . Not difficult. .
So these 5 days mimicked this way of eating but with reduced calorific intake. Much the same as the Michael Mosely 1000 cal a day eating plan for helping to reverse type 2 diabetes.
.
Happy Easter everyone.
I'm now looking forward to family Easter weekend with proper meals which are still healthy and also a bite or two or three of a dark chocolate Easter egg.

Mother and daughter reformer Pilates

Mother and daughter reformer Pilates.
She's the one further away obvs

This exercise is for the lower abs, core, glutes and also arms. .
To raise the intensity of the exercise the legs can be scissored lower just as my daughter is doing.
