There's no rules really, but it would be really great if you can do at least one the following after you've posted your link:
  •  Drop by the other health blogs and say hi! If you’re an early bird, then pop back later over the weekend to see who else has joined.
  •  Follow BTBS on social media (see right for various different links!)

Lynne Robinson's Pilates for Life - The Handbook of Adaptable Pilates Workouts

Pilates For Life by Linda Robinson & Carmela Trappa
Pilates For Life by Linda Robinson 
& Carmela Trappa
Pilates for Life is a great workout handbook for anyone over the age of 40, or for anyone who is looking to start Pilates but requires an adapted workout to accommodate an injury or disability. 

As Lynne says, it's never too early or late to start looking after your mind or body. While we can't slow down the ageing process (which begins in our mid 20s!), a healthy lifestyle will go a long way to help slow it down. Which, with the average life expectancy increasing, becomes even more important! By age 40, our bones begin to lose density and muscle tissue weakens. At this point, we need to adapt our workouts with our future health in mind - focusing on exercises that will improve our flexibility, posture, balance, mobility, stamina and bone strength. Pilates is great for all of these things and can easily be adapted for all ages and abilities, as Lynne demonstrates in the book.

August Health and Fitness Buys

Beyond The Bathroom Scale's August Health & Fitness Buys
August can be a busy time of year, whether you're rushing around getting the kids ready to go back to school, attending weddings, or having a late summer holiday. As we all know, our health can slide by the end of summer if we don't make enough time to eat properly and get the nutrition we need. 

This month I've been munching on high protein snacks such as beautifully seasoned hard boiled eggs and foods rich in fatty acids (Chia seeds and coconut oil!) and I've relaxed using essential oils!
