Zen and the art of menopause maintenance

I Duff, have been practising yoga once a week for a couple of years now. To be honest I didn't really get the whole yoga vibe.

Sharkey and Duffs road to fitness …..

Our lives in fitness !
Our diets however were much the same, we sustained ourselves on a rich diet of coffee ,Diet Coke, wine, Marlborough lights and the occasional slice of toast. This was a common diet for our generation, especially hairdressers.
This nutritious combination kept the weight down, along with a long list of mad and sometimes completely bonkers diet fads.
The Cambridge diet
The cabbage diet
The egg diet
The diet where you can only eat foods that begin with b in the dark diet 🤔
We would try anything and everything in the pursuit of emaciation.
Now when you hit 40 strange things start to happen to your body especially if like me (Duff) you have a late baby.
Things start to drop and they begin to drop quickly!! Now don't get me wrong after having all my kids I hit the gym with Sharkey to shift the 4 stone of excess baby weight ( and yes we enjoyed every mouthful thanks)but then Janet would carry on and I would not.
At 40 I knew it was a case of use it or lose it!
Lose muscle tone
Lose definition
lose your boobs to your waistline and your arse to your knees 😳


A little introduction to Sharkey & Duff…

This is our journey, we wanted to share our experiences, ideas and interests. With the help of some friends and experts, hopefully we can navigate ourselves through these wonder years and come out feeling and looking fierce. In the interests of science and for your entertainment. We are willing to try anything and everything out there, that to staves off middle age, wrinkles and a life in elasticated pants and comfortable shoes. Our main aim to grow old disgracefully but well preserved.
