Pranamat, review and first impression!

Hey guys welcome back to my blog!

I am so excited to share with you another review post. This time I will be reviewing the pranamat eco. Pranamat ECO features dozens of lotus-shaped massage stimulators that put gentle pressure on your problem areas to relieve minor aches and pains. Plus they use 100% natural and eco-friendly materials.

Here is the link to their site

Pranamat

Below is an example of what the mat looks like.

It was nothing like I expected, I was so nervous to lay down the first time, thinking it would hurt but it didn’t at all. It was almost soothing.

I found myself feeling more relaxed.

I normally spend around 15 minutes laying on it and get off toasty warm and red and feeling calm.

The reason I was so interested in trying the pranamat is because of the benefits they could bring.

These being;

– increasing your energy levels

– helping with depression and stress

– acting as a powerful pain killer

– easing muscle spasms, reducing muscle tension, and easing spinal problems

– compensating for lack of physical activity (e.g. plane flights, prolonged travel by car, prolonged work at the computer, illnesses connected with immobility)

– helping to improve metabolism and help to reduce fat and cellulite

After ordering the pranamat it didn’t take long to arrive, and came in perfect condition ready to use. I have now been using the mat 3-4 times a week for the last two weeks and definitely am noticing a difference in my stress levels and overall happiness, I am working more and harder but feel less stressed and more happy.

I honestly was sceptical when I first read about it but I can’t wait to continue using it and seeing even more of the benefits from regular use.

How it works:

The Pranamat uses the principles of acupressure and reflexology, and works on the idea that the tiny lotus spikes stimulate active nerve centres and intensify the local blood flow and lymph circulation.

This then causes the release of endorphins which act as a natural pain killer and happiness hormone that are effective in blocking pain, and producing analgesia and a overall sense of wellbeing.

More information can be found on their website as well.

Review:

What I like about it; I see a real difference in even just one use.

What I don’t like; nothing except you have to be careful getting off cause I grazed my elbow (mainly cause I am clumsy)

Overall thoughts: this mat could be my saving grace, as someone who works a lot and doesn’t get a lot of free time, I find I get quick results and definitely notice more energy and less stress.

I would give it a 9/10

You definitely have to be a patient person to use it but it definitely makes a difference.

Sculpsure; Review, results and where to get it done!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my blog, over the last few months Ive been trialling the Sculpsure sessions at The Gold Coast Medical Precinct in Varsity Lakes. They have been amazing and so helpful sharing all the science behind sculpsure for me.

Here is a little video as well incase you want to know more.

Sculpsure Video

To start off I wanted to share a bit of info about Sculpsure; who its for, how it works and so on!

How It Works and the side effects;

The sessions take 25 minutes per area, there isn’t really any side effects; the main one is after the session for a week your fat is a bit tender and has to be massage regularly.

Info on it;

Minimal absorption in dermis leaves skin’s surface unharmed

Contact Cooling™ enhances patient comfort

Feathering of heat spread provides natural-looking results

Up to 24% fat reduction in multisite trials of over 100 patients

Mild and transient side effects

HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITIES?

There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can be treated during your lunch hour and return to work afterwards.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Most patients start to see results within 6 weeks, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks. I could see mine before 6 weeks and could see it even more after my second session.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

Fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment. The destroyed fat is then processed by the lymphatic system and naturally eliminated from the body. Once the fat leaves the body, it is gone forever!

My Results and Experience;

I was really impressed with my results, I went in not really expecting any results but definitely saw results. The treatment itself takes 25 minutes and is quite uncomfortable, not unbearable but definitely uncomfortable. It goes through hot and cold sensations and at its worst on my stomach it almost felt like bad period pains. Each session and area felt slightly different and was more bearable if i just distracted myself with my phone and didn’t think about the pain. I found talking made the pain worse because I wasn’t fully distracted. Here is my results. On the top left is before my first treatment, bottom left is before the second and the one on the right is before my third treatment.

Costs, Review, others results and similar treatments and costs;

So for each session it costs an average of $700 per session and they recommend 2 or more sessions for the best results.

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my page! or welcome if your new here!

Recently, I was sent an amazing set of goodies from Goddess Nutrition. On their Site they offer supplements, accessories and also soon active wear!

In the pack they sent me they included the following;

And a bunch of Sample size Proteins

Valued at 1.99Pound each or $3.55AUD

I wanted to make sure I gave them a massive try before I shared my experience with you so I tested them for the last 2 weeks; On my gym days I used the Fat Burner, Appetite Suppressors, Pre workout and then Protein. Then on my rest days I had the Fat Burner, Appetite Suppressors and BCAAs.

For this review, I will separately review each product; talking about the benefits of the products, what I like/What I would change and the taste.

BCAAS:

What are BCAAs’

  1. They Promote Protein Synthesis
  2. Stops your muscles breaking down and getting used for energy
  3. They can make you feel less tired

For the BCAAs I got the flavour, Juicy Apple.

The flavour isn’t very strong and is slightly powdery but still easy to drink, I definitely noticed a difference in my recovery time while using them as well.

What I love; Faster recovery time so I can get the most of my workouts!

What I would Change; I wish the flavour was a little sweeter

Taste; 7/10

Results; 9/10

 

Pre Workout:

What is the point of pre workout?

Pre-workout is made up from a combination of ingredients directly related to increasing performance. It is designed as a drink to have before training to give you more energy to be able to work out harder for longer.

Ingredients included;

  • Beta Alanine – 3g
  • Creatine – 3g
  • Caffeine – 200mg
  • BCAA – 1g
  • Arginine – 0.4g
  • Glutamine – 0.4g

For the Pre Workout I got the Blue Slush Flavour. Blue Slush made me think of Blueberries; it didnt taste like blueberries but it was really nice and actually tasted like those blue slush puppies you can get!

What I love; I felt a buzz really quickly and I didnt crash hard either! Plus I got multiple PBs while using it.

What I would change; took a bit of effort to mix through but thats not uncommon.

Taste; 9/10

Results; 10/10

 

Appetite Suppressors and Fat Burner Capsules:

What do appetite suppressors do?
Appetite suppressors help to increase the serotonin levels in your brain in order to suppress your body’s hunger cravings. Appetite Suppressors are useful for when you need to cut your daily calorific intake down. Combining appetite suppressors with a healthy diet and regular exercise regime will help you to reduce your caloric intake, and therefore lose weight as they help your body to stop thinking it needs to over-eat.

What does Thermogenic Fat burner do?
Thermogenesis is the process of burning calories to produce heat. Taking thermogenic fat burners increases your natural level of burning calories and therefore increases your metabolic rate. This means you will be burning more calories than you would have done naturally. Thermogenic Fat Burners are also known to help give you an energy boost!

How were they;

I use them both in conjunction and really do notice a difference; the capsule form is easy to swallow and doesn’t give me heart burn like I have experienced with other fat burners or appetite suppressors before. The fat burner has a detox effect I find, which I think makes it more obvious its working.

Taste; no taste but easy to swallow

Results; 10/10

 

Protein Samples;

How does their protein effect the body?
Protein is essential in the human body and for overall health and well-being. It is a nutrient that breaks down to repair and grow strong bones, muscles, hair, skin and organs. Protein is one of the major structural components found in every cell of your body. It expends more energy digesting than carbohydrates or fats which means that people consuming more protein may see faster fat loss than someone on a low-protein diet. If you find yourself hungry all day you are potentially not eating enough protein. Protein takes longer to digest then carbs or fats so should keep you feeling fuller for longer. While you can get protein from meats, dairy, eggs and fish (or legumes, nuts and seeds for vegetarians) it is widely believed that an active person requires more protein than the average person, particularly for muscle recovery. This is where Protein shakes come in!

Flavours I tried;

Banana Marshmallow, Belgian Chocolate, Coconut Ice-cream, Strawberries and cream and Vanilla milkshake for the Complete recovery shakes and Gingerbread cupcake and Raspberry cheesecake for the slimming meal replacement. They are all easy to drink and mix well, they keep me full and don’t make me bloated! They are also Vegetarian friendly and gluten free.

Favourite Flavour; Strawberries and cream

Least Fave Flavour; Vanilla milkshake; still delicious but a lot more boring compared to the other flavours.

Taste; 9/10

Results; 9/10

You Foodz, my most recent order and review

Hey guys so if you’ve followed me for a while you would know that I order from you foodz quite regularly, I think their meals are amazing I am yet to find a meal prep company that can compare. The meals are a great size without being super high in calories; there is a massive variety of meals you can get, as well as snacks. 

The protein mint slice is to die for, I could eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner! 

This weeks favourite meal is; the YFC chicken and slaw which is what my photo is! I think my favourite thing about you foodz is the amount of time it saves me, meal prep can take up so much time; especially if you are cooking every night! 

Plus it makes it easier to keep up with the calories you are consuming if you struggle to lose weight like I do. The You foodz meals have really helped me get back into my regular routine and start working off all the weight I gained while studying because I was always eating take out 😭

In the four months while studying I probably gained about 5kgs and it made me feel disgusting! Getting back on real food and portioned meals has made a crazy difference, in a week I had lost about 3kgs because my body was carrying so much water weight from eating bad and not getting any exercise. I have now lost about 5kgs of fat but I have gained some muscle. 

The biggest difference I can see is in my body itself though, and how I feel about it. My stomach has started to flatten and debloat, my face is getting more slim and my skin has started to clear up ( except for one evil pimple that has just popped up over night 😭).

I definitely can’t wait to see more results in myself, because seeing even the slightest change has made me so much happier. 

If you guys are wanting to try your foodz the link below will get you one free meal 💁🏼. And if you get your free meal I get a free meal too. 

You foodz
Has anyone tried you foodz before?

What did you think? And what’s your favourite meal? 

Hypoxi, is it worth the price tag? First Week done and dusted, what did I think?

Hey guys, Welcome back to my blog. Todays post is about the experience so far that I have had with Hypoxi Hope island/ Enhance Wellness Clinic over the last week. So far I have done 3 sessions with them and over the next three weeks I will do another 9 sessions. Although I wont provide before and after pictures and measurements till the last post.

To start off, I have tried three of the machines so far; the Vacunaut+ dermology , the s120 and the L250. Each Machine has its own use and targeting areas.

The Vacunaut + Dermology targets stubborn fat around:

– Stomach and hips

The S120 Targets stubborn fat and cellulite around:

– Lower Stomach
– Hips
– Bottom
– Thighs
– Lower Back

The L250 targets stubborn fat and cellulite around:
– Lower Stomach
– Hips
– Bottom
– Thighs
– Lower Back

None of the machines are very strenuous the whole session takes around 30-35 minutes. For the first three sessions I started by doing 15 minutes in the vacunaut, then 20 minutes in either the S120 or the L250. I find the L250 a lot harder then the S120 you feel it more in your Bum and thighs. After the three sessions I have to say I can really feel it working, the lower half of my body really feels like I have put it to work. Afterwards I feel really refreshed and ready for the day ahead. The only downside to the treatment is avoiding any carbs for most of the day, I find it makes me feel a little bit light headed.

I will keep you posted on how the next few weeks go, let me know if there are any questions you have about the sessions or my results. Don’t forget to follow my blog to see all my posts.

Why you should get a facial on a monthly basis!

Hey guys welcome back to my blog, I have some exciting news. There is a few giveaways coming soon both on here and on my instagram and Facebook. So be sure to follow me on here, Instagram and Facebook. I have added the links below.

Todays blog post is about facials, the importance of facials and the benefits.

Firstly, a facial is a great way to relieve stress and stress effects the skin in a negative way. A facial detoxifies your body, which aids in things such as puffiness and redness of the skin.

Secondly, massaging the skin helps to circulate the blood which benefits the skin by helping to renew skin cells. A good facial will also help to boost collagen in the skin which is known to help with fine lines and anti ageing. Other benefits of a facial include reducing congestion in your pores and help with things such as acne, enlarged pores and so on. Facials also help in areas such as skin tone, facials can reduce dark spots and pigmentation issues.

Another surprising benefit of facials is weight loss, stress is a big cause of weight gain and reducing stress can help with weight loss, as well the chemicals your brain produces while getting a facial aids in weight loss as well.

I dont know about you, but I am definitely going to look at getting a facial very soon!

Has anyone had a recent facial? I would love to know about your experience.

Bikini Babe Detox tea review

Hey Guy welcome back to my blog.

13774613_1058129944273992_336909596_n

today I will be sharing with you my bikini babe tea detox experience and review.

I have to say straight up this detox tea was the best tasting detox tea I have ever had, all the other literally make me gag the whole time I am drinking it, but I really enjoy this one.

Straight away I noticed a difference in my energy levels and bloating, I found I wasnt taking so many naps during the week or feeling so lethargic all day. I found it helped with digestion as well.. if you know what I mean ahha. I actually thought I was less hungry while drinking this as well which is always great for weight loss. I would definitely like to try this tea again because I was really impressed. Anything that can stop me from looking as bloated is always a win! Taste wise, the tea is amazing. The day tea has a floral taste and the night tea has more of a spice to it.

I would give this tea a rating of:

Taste: 5/5

Look: 5/5

Results: 4.5/5
