My Bodytrim Journey: week 13

I am starting to think that I have reached a weight that my body is happy at as I only dropped 100g last week. Though, it was Dad's birthday on the weekend (we are right in the middle of cake season in my family!), and I did make some pretty awesome 'Grandpa' and in doing so may have picked at the lollies a little bit too much. It was on my free day so I wasn't too concerned. What is good about this is that it shows that if I am fairly compliant during the week, then I can let loose a little bit on my free day and it doesn't affect my weight too much. It really comes down to choices - if I chose to eat well during the week it gives me the flexibility to eat what I would like on the weekend. It is when I eat what I like 24/7 that I suddenly find myself 6kgs over weight.




Weigh In:
Starting weight: 72.5kgs
Weight after week 1: 69.4kgs
Weight after week 2: 68.7kgs
Weight after week 3: 68.1kgs
Weight after week 4: 67.2kgs
Weight after week 5: 66.7kgs
Weight after week 6: 65.4kgs
Weight after week 7: 65.4kgs
Weight after week 8: 64.7kgs
Weight after week 9: 64.1kgs
Weight after week 10: 63.4kgs
Weight after week 11: 63.1kgs
Weight after week 12: 62.9kgs
Weight after week 13: 62.8kgs
Loss in last week = -0.1kgs
Total weight loss: 9.7kgs

I am super happy with how I have gone on this journey. I can't believe that I have lost nearly 10kgs. This is actually meant to be my final week on the weight loss phase of Bodytrim - when I started, I chose my birthday as my goal end date and that is this Sunday. I hope that I can lose 300g next week to bring it to an even 10kgs weight loss, that would be cool! Next week I will update with measurements and photos so you can see how far I have come.

A sneak peak at Lush's Christmas 2013 Products

Someone posted on Facebook today that it is only 100 days to Christmas. Holy crap...how is that even possible?? Where in the heck has this year gone?? I bloody love Christmas, but it still scares how fast this year is zooming by. I suppose I should have had an inkling it as near. Each year I go a little bit crazy buying up Lush's limited edition goodies then spend the rest of the year working my way through them. Last wek, I used the last of my Christmas 2012 ballistics so the new batch must be just about ready to hit the shelves!

I am always hopeful that there will be a heap of new products release...but then also do't want that to be at the expense of my past favourites. This year they really haven't disappointed. Not only are there hundreds of new products but stacks of classicshave made a return.

I have listed all individual products that will be available for Christmas 2013. I haven't listed the gift packs as this post would have gone on forever. The Christmas products should be hititng shelves in late October, from memory of past years. I will see if I can get a more accurate release date.

Formostar Wrap at Alkaline Spa and Clinic: the lazy way to burn 1200 calories

I love beauty therapies that are discovered by accident - that were originally made for a medically purpose but were found to have 'beautiful related' side effects. The Formostar wrap is one such device. Infra red has been show to reduce pain and inflammation and so this device was originally designed for treating arthritis sufferers or people with muscular injuries or pain. The side effect that was noticed from these treatments was fat/weight loss around the treatment site. So, naturally, the Formostar wrap then found it's way into the beauty industry as a weight loss tool. 

The Formostar wrap is comprised of plastic panels that can be wrapped around certain body parts which then allow infra red light waves to pass into the body. The waves are able to penetrate around 4-5 cm below the skins surface. It is then claimed that the treatment stimulates the body’s natural metabolism, with effects similar to an intensive cardiovascular workout. Unlike the fluid loss experienced through sweating during exercise, weight loss is achieved through the excretion of fat and increased enzyme activity within the tissues; and the burning of calories as energy. Alkaline Formostar can help you burn off up to 1,200 calories in a single session. It is recommended that you have a series of 8 sessions to maximise results.
  

The contraption that powers the infrared

The plastic panels that get wrapped around you.

My experience with the Alkaline Formostar Wrap
I am always willing to be a guinea pig in the name of beauty and so was quite intrigued to try this. I tolerate heat well. In fact, I have always been quite sensitive to the cold but fairly oblivious to the heat (the one exception being that New Years day in 2006 when the weather topped 47 degrees Celsius in Sydney. With a hangover from the night before that had to have been one of the most unpleasant days of my life!). The first thing you do is change into the PJs provided. You then lay down on the bed and get tightly wrapped with the silicon panels. I had my thighs, hips/bum, stomach and arms wrapped. I could have had my boobs wrapped if I wanted them reduced; however, after a total of 21 months breast feeding my kids have pretty much sucked all the fat out of them anyway so I opted to leave them.

All wrapped up
You then get covered with a blanket and the session begins. To simulate real exercise the first 20 minutes are fairly easy, not too hot then he heat increase for the final 20 minutes. I was chatting away with my therapist so tolerated it well as I didn't really notice the heat too much but you can see from how red my face is that it did get really hot. Occasionally you get hot spots where the heat feels too intense - it starts to feel quite prickly. They tell you to inform them as soon as you get that feeling then they quickly unwrap you, put a towel over that area, then re-wrap you. The towel doesn't diminish the effect of the infrared but takes away the burning sensation. I got the sensation in my legs but once the towel was applied it was fine again.

Nice and snug and cosy and all wrapped up (see my bright red face)
Throughout the session you are sweating like never before so they bring you in a cup of alkaline water. I ended up downing two of those. I am not the best water drinker (I think I get so distracted chasing adter the kids I simply forget to drink water throughout the day so thought I should replenish my fluids before I forgot).

Throughout the session I felt fin and enjoyed the hot sensation. However, afterwards I had an intense headache and felt somewhat nauseated. This was due to dehydration with a bit of hunger mixed in, as both symptoms vanished after I had lunch and another drink of water. By that afternoon I felt back to my normal self.

My disgustingly sweaty post wrap pants!

Did I lose any weight?
As you know, I have been on a weight loss journey for the last 3 months, following the Bodytrim program (here is my most recent post and at the end is a link to every post in the series if you wanted to read about my journey). I tested the Formostar wrap fairly early in my Bodytrim journey (week 2 to be exact). I weighed myself before the session and again afterwards and had lost 400g but you can see from how wet my clothes were, a heap of the weight loss was sweat. I then weighed myself again the following morning, once I had spent the day rehydrating, and I was still down 200g so it is likely that a 200g weight loss can be attributed to the Formostar Wrap. Over that whole week I lost 700g so am guessing (as it would never be possibly for me to definitely know what my body is doing inside) that 500g of weight loss could be attributed to the Bodytrim diet and the extra 200g was probably due to the Formostar wrap.

I have tried to find some scientific research that confirms that you actually do burn 1200 calories in a session but have struggled. Most of the studies I found are from people who sell the Formostar systems so are not neutral. One American group bought a machine and then used it whilst testing how much the metabolic rate increased. After a 30 minute session, they found that they burnt 67 calories. The company then refuted that finding saying that as the Formostar doesn't cause your heart rate to rise, you can't measure for a raise in metabolism with the traditional methods.

Some sites even claim that the infrared wrap liquefies fat cells and that the liquid fat is then released from the body - this would be quite worrying if it were true as it would put you at huge risk of heart attack (the liquid fat could clog arteries). If you are going for this sort of treatment and your therapist tells you the infrared will liquefy your fat then run for the hills as they don't know what they are talking about. I am pleased to report that the therapist I had at Alkaline really knew her stuff. I actually asked her whether the Formostar wrap liquefies fat and she said 'God no, you wouldn't want to do that' (or something like that...I'm paraphrasing as it was a couple of months ago!).

As I haven't been able to unearth any scientific articles that support the claims that the Formostar wrap can help you burn up to 1200 calories in a single session, I have to go with my gut and my gut feeling is that it wouldn't be possible to burn that amount. The average women requires around 2000 calories/day so I just can't see how it would be possible to burn 60% of your days calories in 30 minutes. However, I do believe that it can aid in weight loss. The fact that this technology was discovered as an unexpected side effect (the fat loss, that is) when it was being used to treat pain makes me think that it is causing some amount of weight loss or burning of fat.

I think that the Alkaline Formostar wrap could be a good compliment to your weight loss journey. I know in my title I said that it was a lazy way to burn up to 1200 calories but, in reality, if you are just going to use the wrap in isolation and for the rest of the week be a junk food eating couch potato then you will not see any results. However, with a healthy eating plan and addition exercise it may just accelerate your weight/fat loss results. They recommend that you complete a series of 8 sessions - if you did do that I guess you could expect to lose around 1.5kgs.

You can experience the Alkaline Formostar wrap at the Alkaline Spa, Potts Point. A single session is $110; series of 8 is $750; or a series of 15 is $1,300. I just want to say that my experience at the Alkaline Spa was exceptional. My therapist was so knowledgeable (I couldn't stop talking to her as I just wanted to learn everything that she had to say) and the whole experience was a very enjoyable one for me.

Have you tried any devices to accelerate your fat or weight loss? Did you have success with such device?

My Bodytrim Journey: week 12

I made a huge psychological break through this week - I entered the 62's! Though I only lost 200g last week, it feels quite significant that I am in the 62's and am now less than 1kg of my target weight - 900g to be exact!



Weigh In:
Starting weight: 72.5kgs
Weight after week 1: 69.4kgs
Weight after week 2: 68.7kgs
Weight after week 3: 68.1kgs
Weight after week 4: 67.2kgs
Weight after week 5: 66.7kgs
Weight after week 6: 65.4kgs
Weight after week 7: 65.4kgs
Weight after week 8: 64.7kgs
Weight after week 9: 64.1kgs
Weight after week 10: 63.4kgs
Weight after week 11: 63.1kgs
Weight after week 12: 62.9kgs
Loss in last week = -0.2kgs
Total weight loss: 9.6kgs

As I am reaching my target weight goal, I am really noticing my weight loss slow down. I haven't really increased the amount of exercise that I am doing so this is probably why - I have probably reached a happy weight for my body and if I want to lose any more I will need to increase my energy expenditure. 

I am really happy with how I am looking. Now that the weather is warming up, I am pulling out clothes I haven't worn in 6 months and they are too loose which is a great sign of the progress that I have made. People keep asking me whether I feel heaps better and the strange thing is that I don't. I don't feel like I have lost nearly 10kgs - I think my body is finally matching up with how I thought I looked. I don't feel like I have heaps more energy (isn't that something people who lose weight always say?) but I'd say that is because I am still in the chronically sleep deprived days of having a young family. I am definitely way less cranky though, so that must be the equivalent of having more energy when you are sleep deprived!

I have two more weeks left until my goal end date which is my birthday (actually - I am late getting this weeks post up so it is actually 1 week and 3 days) and 900g to lose. In theory, it is definitely doable though in reality I would be happy to be anywhere in the 62's. This journey has gone so fast. I decided to go on it on a complete whim and I am so glad that I did. It seemed so daunting at first yet has been surprisingly easy. The real challenge may be maintaining my goal weight and not let bad habits sneak back in.

Have a great week everyone and stay clear of sugar!

What's In-Die Box September reveal: Sex and the City theme

A few weeks ago I wrote about the What's In-Die Box concept; a monthly indie nail polish subscription box where you receive 5 unique polishes that have been created especially for the box (so you are guaranteed not to have them already). The boxes cost $47.99 each plus $7.95 P&H. You have to order one each month (that you want to receive it - ie there is no subscription). For more details either check out my last post or head of to Glam Polish, the creator of the concept, for a detailed description.

Anyway, for those who would like to know what was in the September Sex and the City themed box, keep reading! I have done quick swatches for you to check out how the colours look but will swatch them properly when I have a bit more time. Each swatch is three coats though most could have safely done with two.




Carrie me Away - Glam Polish

City Lights - Lilypad Lacquer

 
Labels or Love - Peita's Polish
 
I Miss New York - Celestial Cosmetics

Neutral Agreement - Emily de Molly

I am very happy with the polishes - the only one I probably wouldn't have bought myself was Neutral Agreement by Emily de Molly as I am not much of a neutrals fan (though the glitter does make it way less drab). I absolutely love City Lights - Lilypad Lacquer and I Miss New York - Celestial Cosmetics - can't choose which is my favourite out of these two!

Did you sign up for the September box? Were you happy with the polishes?

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum

I have long been a huge fan of Jurlique's Herbal Recovery Gel. It was my go to serum in my 20's. I would put it on, of an evening, and in the morning my skin would look amazing: plump, hydrated and happy. Now that I have hit my 30's I thought that a more serious anti-ageing serum was in order and so decided to take the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum for a test drive.



What they say: This youth defence concentrate serum features a proprietary active complex: Naturadiance PB18+ to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, help increase elasticity, restore radiance and increase hydration, while antioxidants create a natural defence shield to help protect against environmental aggressors. Leaves skin visibly glowing, hydrated and younger-looking. Our exclusive Naturadiance PB18+ complex combines 15 Bio-Intrinsic TM botanical extracts with 3 breakthrough ingredients to deliver potent antioxidant properties to help protect, revitalize and enhance your skin’s recovery cycle.
  • Persian Silk Extract to help strengthen skin cell capacity to shield against environmental stress.
  • Whu-Zhu-Yu Extract possesses excellent microcirculation boosting and skin smoothing properties.
  • Peach Leaf Extract to help recover skin vitality and promote cellular regeneration.


What I say: This serum promises to improve skin texture, hydration/fine lines, smoothness and skin health. I can definitely confirm that it improves skin hydration - the effect is almost instant. My skin drinks up this serum. And by becoming hydrated, the fine lines vanish.

The serum has fantastic astringent properties that really leave the skin feeling taut. So it also improves the texture of the skin making it look perfectly smooth and, again, the fine lines are ironed out.

However, and rather unfortunately, I did a an issue with the serum. It stung when I applied it and left my skin looking red and feeling a little bit raw. I think that it might be a bit too strong for me, or perhaps I am reacting to one of the ingredients. I persisted with using it but each day it got slightly more stingy and slightly more red. I currently reviewing quite a few different products so it is possible that all of this chopping and changing has left my skin a bit sensitive. I am going to give it a break, let it recover then give this another try to see how it reacts...fingers crossed, there are no issues second time around.

Other than aesthetics, this serum is hands down the best smelling serum I have smelt. Very rosy. Whereas the original Herbal Recovery Gel smells herbally (and a little bit fermenty in a strangely pleasant way) this smells strongly of rose with faint herbal undertones. I personally love it but be prepared for a very strong smelling serum.

In summary, I LOVE the smell of this serum; I LOVE the astringent properties that leave my skin looking taut; I LOVE he intense hydration but the sensitivity and redness that it has caused in my skin is a bit of a concern. I will give it a second chance once my skin has calmed down a bit and report back with the results but at this stage it looks like I might be sticking with the original Herbal Recovery Gel.

The Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum retails for $75.00/30ml or $165.00/100ml and can be found at David Jones, Myer, selected Chemists or online.

Have you ever desperately wanted to love a product but had it not work for you?
