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

HYPOXI L250 Machine Woman

Let me start by admitting that I have not exercised since 2006. I am talking about walking no more than 3 blocks (excluding my visits to the USA because I like to walk around when I am there) and not purposely doing something to break a sweat. The thought of exercise makes me cringe but my ever growing thighs/ass/stomach are continually weighing on my mind. When I recently went to wear a dress I bought during Cyber Monday last year and it didn’t even do up (a dress that was actually a little too big just months earlier) I knew I had to do something about it. The opportunity was presented to me to try out HYPOXI and today I want to tell you all about my experiences so far.

It is recommended you do a course of HYPOXI which is 12 sessions. I have now completed 5 sessions and will be doing my 6th session today. Today is weigh-in day and I am very nervous. There are weigh-in days at session 1, 6 and 12. I have no idea if I have successfully managed to shed a centimetre or a kilo as yet but that is why I wanted to write this post before I found out. Why? Because I don’t think I need the weigh-in to tell me what has changed. Let me explain …

NOTE: Despite being offered to try this treatment I never agreed/promised to write about HYPOXI. I am sharing my experience because I think it will be of interest to you, as I do with all my blog posts. Please read about my editorial policies if you are in doubt. Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
