    Wow, well done! So p,eased you’ve been able to keep going. The extra fitness will really help your muscles support your joints.

    I’ve managed to lose nearly a stone during lockdown but the pain in my hip is now so bad that it’s really limiting and I’m finding I can’t do even most basic moves on my Gentle Pilates class and will have to drop out when it restarts. 😢 . Even being on hands and knees is too painful. However, I get into some pretty odd positions when gardening so I call that my workout session!. 🙂🌹🐝
