A couple of weeks ago I finished my HYPOXI program. If you haven’t caught up on the action so far, you can read about my first experience, how it changed my eating and lifestyle habits, the struggles I faced midway through, and the booster I needed. If you have read all those then you are up to date and the following will make sense to you … I hope.

So when we last spoke I was having serious struggles dropping a single bit of weight. I could feel I was slimmer, I thought I looked a little slimmer and clothes I couldn’t do up before were now doing up, so surely I had to have lost some weight. I think the final results speak for themselves.

In total I did 19 sessions of L250 and 12 sessions of HDC. The “end” measurements were taken at the beginning of my 19th session so these results are excluding any weight loss I have had from the final session onwards.  Continue Reading

Fluid retention. Those are two words I know all too well. For someone who is usually classed by medical folk as dehydrated, it is amazing how much fluid I retain. So after my first weigh-in after using the HYPOXI L250, and we noticed the results were not looking good, it was suggested I consider using their HypoxiDermology (HDC) machine which, among other things, helps to fight the water retention.

The HypoxiDermology treatment is used prior to a session on the L250 or other HYPOXI machines, and some of the benefits include accelerating the results of other HYPOXI treatments, detoxing toxins in the body, improved skin texture and reduction in cellulite. Prior to starting HYPOXI I didn’t care too much about my cellulite because until I got rid of the fat I had no plans to get in a swimsuit, BUT I was aware of how poor my skin texture was. After 13 sessions of HDC (used prior to the L250) I am ready to share my findings and review of the HDC.  Continue Reading

HYPOXI L250 Machine

Last month I started a course of HYPOXI to help me lose some weight and tone up the fat. I introduced you to the L250 Fitness Trainer and since that time I have undergone two weigh-ins and commenced treatment on another machine, the HDC. I am only a few sessions away from finishing up but before I do I wanted to give you a midway rundown of my progress. It has had ups and downs, twists and turns, and nothing went as planned.

If you didn’t catch my Vegan blog post I do recommend reading it because I tell you how HYPOXI played a huge role in getting my health and body into shape. Ok, it isn’t completely in shape yet but if it wasn’t for HYPOXI I probably never would have realised just how bad I was. So let me continue from where I left off in my previous HYPOXI postContinue Reading

Professional beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries shares her personal blogger burnout story and experience

This article is Part 1 of a three-part series about my personal experience with Blogger Burnout – My Demise + My Recovery + My Future

I started The Plastic Diaries in 2008, became a full-time blogger in 2010 and vanished from the blogging universe in 2015. Where did I go? Why? What happened to me? These are questions that have been asked of me during my 18+ month disappearance. The short answer was blogger burnout – a rarely spoken of condition that is fast becoming a serious concern amongst the influencer industry. Have you ever followed a blogger and notice that one day they have just disappeared? Their blog stopped posting new content, their social media went untouched – it happens often. In my almost 9 years of blogging I have lost count of the bloggers that have come and gone, most of which I have no idea why or where they went.

Upon my return to blogging at the end of last year I’ve put off explaining what exactly occurred in my life. I confided in a few select friends and trusted individuals about my story but I’ve brushed over it with the wider community by saying the cause was “personal stuff”. I don’t believe bloggers owe anyone an explanation when they disappear but I know that when my favourites have gone AWOL I’ve missed them and been concerned for their wellbeing. I didn’t want to be another blogger who vanished without a trace and leave you wondering. I also believe Continue Reading
