Hypoxi – my honest review

Do you remember the first time you didn’t like your body? When you first started to pick apart all the parts and pieces which make you, you? I do. I was 14, I guess I need to be thankful that it was not before this, which I am positive our next generation are acutely aware of at a much earlier age.

At 32, I think I have given most methods a try. In terms of diets I have tried Atkins, Ketogenic, Weight Watchers, Mediterranean, BodyTrim, Lite & Easy, Clever Guts, calorie counting and weighing my food to the gram. With exercise I have had the gym memberships, gone to classes, been involved in boot-camp, bought the heart-rate monitor, running, swimming, HIIT, fat-burning cardio – the lot.

Not in an obsessive way of course, just little lifestyle changes from time to time. Sometimes I successfully kept the weight off for a while and then due to bad practice would put it all back on again (my fault).

I am finding the weight harder to shift, it is more stubborn, it is dense and with a risk for intracranial hypertension – I need to be both mindful and aware of my BMI. Around 4 months ago I was so sick of going to the gym, that I stopped going. My bike tyres kept blowing out, so I stopped riding to work and quite frankly the mornings were cool and dark, so early morning exercise was out of the question (again, this is all my own doing).

My girl friend in Sydney runs her own Hypoxi clinic and for a few years she has told me about the benefits. My best friend and MOH two years ago went through a Hypoxi program prior to my wedding and had great results. I am coming up to the completion of my eight week program and with many of my girl friends asking for a blog post and an update, here it is!

What is Hypoxi?

Hypoxi is a low-impact exercise that promotes quick and targeted results (fat + cellulite)sessions. With advanced vacuum and compression technology (and nutrition) Hypoxi activates your body’s natural system to burn specific areas of fat and cellulite.

Who is Hypoxi?

Hypoxi was developed by a sports scientist, Dr Norbert Egger and his interest in shifting the problem areas for women resulted in the development of Hypoxi, which made it’s way to Australia in 2005.

How do I Hypoxi?

Lucky for all of us, Hypoxi provides a free initial session for anyone and everyone, during this session your local Coach will assess your requirements and objectives and explain Hypoxi. There are many studios, find your closest one here.

When do I HYPOXI?

There are some independent studies to read, which you best believe I poured over before I decided to try it out – link is here.

Hypoxi is a low-impact exercise that promotes quick and targeted results in just 30 minute sessions. Science is backing this one and being the ever-cautious research nut that I am, it took me a few months before I decided to try it out.

Thankfully there is a free session available to all, which gives you the chance to speak with your local franchised, discuss your wants, needs and expectations and also try it out.

I approached the Bulimba clinic pretty nervously, I feel most vulnerable talking about and showing my body to others. I prefer to hide in the corner of the gym, or go for walks in the dark. It’s just how I am. So it took courage for me to claim my free session and head in.

I could not have been welcomed more warmly than I was by Bec, Although I was suspicious of being presented with unachievable projected goals or a price-list that would make me cry, it could not have ben any different.

Bec is personable, friendly and logical. Having Bec be a part of my journey was wonderful addition to what would turn out to be an incredibly effective and enjoyable experience.

I purchased the eight week program, rolled my ankle pretty severely after week three and then needed a month off. So sadly my results were altered I would imagine because of this. Despite this, I couldn’t be happier with the results! So, my measurements after the eight week program!

I have lost 1.5cm from my waist (which is the smallest part of me, so pretty impressive!)

I have lost 9.5cm from my stomach.

From my hips I have dropped 6.5cm and from my bottom I have lost 5cm!

Safe to say I adore Hypoxi, I love my early morning sessions with Bec at the Bulimba clinic and I have one more week to go in my pre-purchased pack. Unfortunately I rolled my ankle half way through and needed three weeks off, however I still saw results I am beyond happy with.

nd I felt as though I was supported and encouraged in a totally judgement-free zone. Having my measurements taken was pretty daunting and distressing to a point. Have you ever just thought “How did I get here?”. Anyways, the trick is to not get too hung up on that and keep on moving forward.

Things to remember and to abide to, honestly I trialled following and not following these and the differences week-to-week were really noticeable!

  • do NOT consume food for two hours after your session and avoid carbs for a further 4-6 hours. Failing to follow this will result in burning your food, rather than your stubborn food.
  • no alcohol after your session and overall try to limit your alcohol consumption
  • no caffeine for two hours after your session
  • keep your water up – 2L per day if you can
  • avoid fruit immediately after your session also
  • in general try to stick to foods with less then 10mg per 100mg of carbs

The machines I used included the L250 trainer and the HypoxDermology (HD) suit, otherwise known as my sleep-time. This contraption rejuvenates the skin, improving its tone and texture and is modeled on the ancient Chinese practice of cupping. There are some complexities when getting into the suit. First of all, I am 5″9, so everything is long and I am tall, I also pack a bun on-top of my head that nearly requires its own separate hat – I am now at a stage where I can manoeuvre that bad-boy into the suit expertly (although I still forget to bring my arms down to a height which is appropriate for Bec to help me, sorry Bec). I go in this for half an hour before my thirty minute L250 session.So, if you are thinking of it giving it a go, you won’t be disappointed. Here are my before and after pictures. Which I’m not super comfortable sharing but for anyone like me who was searching high and low for independent reviews, then I hope this helps!

Beautiful Boonah, a place of warmth and simplicity.

“They want me. I want them. I want this place. I want everything to be simple and beautiful and warm.” Jackson Pearce (Cold Spell)

I live surprisingly close to the city, which is pretty affordable and means I can get in and out of the city within an hour for the total trip. I love my proximity to the city and the heart of Brisbane, as much as I love living near the river and having pretty much anything I need right on my doorstep.

Day in, day out I start to feel just a little too claustrophobic. I work in the CBD as well and seriously, by the time the weekend rolls around I just feel trapped and want to hibernate in my bedroom and hide away from the world.

Scenic Rim 12

Given the chance to escape the city and get out into the country, I grabbed it with both hands and ran with it. So excited was I to be hitting the M7 and heading far, far away from my house, I barely remembered to pack a jumper or even stop for a coffee on the way. Coffee is my morning elixir, so this provided to be a costly mistake. I had no idea where I was going, how far I would travel or where (even more troubling, when?) I would get my coffee. I drove from Brisbane out through Ipswich and it was not until I reached the very gorgeous Boonah (over an hour south-west), that I stopped, got out of the car, and realised I had no time frame. There was no reason to rush…*SIGHHHH*.

After a bacon & egg roll and a coffee the size of my head, I decided I would make my way out to the Kooroomba Vineyard & Lavender Farm, a place which I have wanted to check out for quite a while. Given it was not open until 10am, and I was up with the birds and had finished my breakfast by 9am, I decided to get back into Scarlett and just drive (Scarlett is my incredibly cute 2010 Mazda 3).

Scenic Rim 11

There is something about the country that calms my mind, gives my heart butterfly kisses and makes me feel at home. For a girl who had no real home and was moving every 2-3 years, I don’t have a ‘home-town’, I do however have a connection to the land. Where the skies are long and blue and the ground is brown – I am at my happiest. I don’t know why, it just is. I feel at home. I feel like I can breathe and I am more than happy to spend some time on my own.

I made my way out to Maroon Lake, set my tripod up and thought I would do some exploring. As I had my tripod in its place and not another soul insight (seriously, it was 9.30am on a Wednesday!), two cars rolled in and in a completely empty area – parked exactly in front of the tripod and stared at the camera. It was, strange? Let’s go with strange. So I hauled my gear to the other side of the lake but didn’t get the shots I was after. Not to worry, it was passed 10 and it was Lavender Farm time!

Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm is a little over an hour from Brisbane and has a spectacular view across the Great Dividing Range. I arrived far too early for a meal or a wine, I did however try the lavender tea and some lavender scones and they were absolutely delicious! There is a stunning chapel where I daydreamed having our vowel renewals one day (a girl can dream, right?) and I spent a healthy amount of time weaving in and out of the beautiful rows of lavender and just enjoying the beautiful spot I was in.

Kooroomba has many award winning wines and host a five-star restaurant on site. It certainly is a location I am keen to return to soon. Once the lunchtime crowd started to roll in, I knew it was time to head home.

For under three hours of travel in total, I felt renewed by the time I got back home to Brisbane. The fresh air, the incredibly friendly people, amazing views and large blue skies and deep straw-coloured fields. It just feels like home, every time.

Aria Brisbane – Our favourite Restaurant

“it’s the whole experience and what it makes you feel. food is one aspect and primarily what people are there to enjoy but it’s equally as much about the service, wine list, interiors, location, atmosphere and an ingrained sense of hospitality.”

/  MATT MORAN /

This week Grant and I celebrated a pretty special Anniversary. Not our wedding anniversary, but our first anniversary. Five years! Five years ago we had our first dinner-date at Aria and we have never forgotten how amazing it was.

Aria is located at Eagle St Pier, has a stunning view of our stunning Brisbane river, the city and the Story Bridge and is manned by an absolutely lovely team. The General Manager, Daniel was able to find our reservation from five years ago and also let us now he had been working that night, out the back. So that was super nostalgic for the both of us!

So we headed back there and we ate all of the following delicious meals…

img_2798
Sydney rock oysters, shallot, aged red wine vinegar & mussels
img_2796
Amazing sliced fig with other tasty treats
img_2799
Tuna, honey bug, wasabi, black radish
img_2800
Gold beetroot, sesame cheese, pear, witlof
img_2804
Smoked pork, turnip, mustard
img_2801
Spanner crab, black rice, avocado, wasabi leaf
img_2802
Wagyu bresaola, parmesan, fried bread

img_2805

img_2807
Strawberry, gingerbread, yoghurt

img_2808

Not Pictured: Veal, celeriac, native thyme with beef cheek

Our first date was pretty special and it’s been one of my favourite memories these past five years. So being so warmly welcomed with genuine hospitality and excitement around our anniversary was really lovely.

The team at Aria are second to none and their food is just amazing. Plus those views, hard to beat!

Tell me, where is your favourite place to dine in Brisbane?

Sweet as…the Brisbane Dessert Festival

 

The Sweet as Brisbane Dessert Festival occurred on Sunday 3 June and provided all Brisbane-ites with their very own festival dedicated to all things sweet!

The World Food Markets (a group of twenty-or-so delicious catering vans) came together to sprinkle our little corner of the world of South Brisbane with chocolate, cakes, sugar-loaded candy, ice-cream and a few savoury options, just to break it all up!

From our wander around I was close to  experiencing whiplash, trying to look at all of the delectable goodness which was surrounding me! There were events throughout the day, we missed the kids ice-cream eating competition which I am sure would have been brilliant!

DSC09478[1]

Like most events around Brisbane, there was the option to buy tickets online, ahead of time and save some $. I think I paid around $11AUD, with the booking fee and the tickets at the gate were around $15. Early release tickets were under $10, so if you do have the chance to book online, try to do so when there is an early release (and save yourself some cash for delicious treats!).

I met up with a wonderful woman, Krista, whom I met on Instagram. Another Brisbane girl who is an absolute delight to be around. We met through #teamkaptainkenny, which is honestly one of the most supportive groups of people online. Krista and I, both mad Brissie lovers have decided we are going to try and showcase our beautiful corner of the world through #ourseqld.

The project is in its baby-stages so far and at this stage I am not sure how well it is going to do. What I do know though, is that we are both dedicated and motivated and at 32 years old, I now realise that there is no shame in failure or in things not working out. The biggest regrets I have so far in my life, are opportunities I didn’t go for, didn’t try or was too scared to risk my safety-net in doing (which is ridiculous because rarely does stepping out of your comfort zone result in physical harm!).

We headed to the Fish Lane precinct, which is in West End / South Brisbane and has some really amazing street art. Wishing you all an incredible Tuesday! Until next time :).

Brisbane Heritage Trails <3

river queen flowers (1)
The Kookaburra Queen has been cruising the Brisbane River since 1986.

When you travel the world, you often do things you may not think to do at home. I find I walk a lot more when I am travelling, I explore on foot, I  like to find the best places to explore, the history of my location etc. When I found my Husband was exactly the same, it makes for fun adventures. We both love getting up early, smashing breakfast and heading out for the day with camera + backpack and a loose idea on where we are going and what we are in search of.

So what would happen when we tried to do the same thing back home in Brisbane? Walking was normally a source of exercise at home, also – what was there to explore in Brisbane?

It turns out there is a LOT! The Brisbane City Council has many Heritage Trails which they have put together, they are free and excellent resources which you can download and access offline (perfect for a free walking adventure!). There are 18 different heritage walking trails across our beautiful Brisbane. The two which we have done recently are the Classic City Centre Heritage trail and the Reflections on the River Trail.

Naldham HouseMy preference is to walk the trails, it is a fun way to get some exercise and get a good feel for the city, if you aren’t keen on walking – there are plenty of public transport options around the city which you may prefer. The reflections on the river trail starts at Customs House, weaves through to the City Botanic Hardens through to QUT Gardens Point Campus and then over to the Coal Wharves of Southbank. We then finished at Southbank. The beauty of this trail is that you can end in Southbank to a plethora of food options!

We took a backpack, some cash for coffee along the way, a couple of water bottles and apples and good walking shoes. We must have walked a good 10,000 steps by the end of it and really, the entire day only cost our coffees and our lunch we had over at Southbank – not a necessary expense, it was just something we shouted ourselves on the day.

It is possible to ‘do things’ in Brisbane without having a large budget to play with and it saves staying at home weekend and you can walk away with new found knowledge of our beautiful city!

Honestly, i cannot recommend doing this enough, you will walk away with a newfound appreciation for your city as well as knowledge you did not have before!

Mount Coot-tha, Brisbane

IMG_9501Brisbane is Queensland’s beloved river city, our suburbs and city trail along the brown snake from Moreton Bay inland for a distance of 344km. It is also no secret that I am a die-hard Brisbane river fan (much to my Husband’s confusion).

So today, we did something different, we ventured from the river and headed up the very beautiful Mount Coot-tha, which is 287m above sea-level and has beautiful panoramic views of Brisbane.

Mount Coot-tha was originally home to the Turrbal Aboriginal people and whose name derives from the aboriginal word for honey kuta. There is a rich history of logging, goldmining and military.

It is only 7km from Brisbane CBD and there are many free activities up there, for all ages. There is also the Summit restaurant which is quite lovely (although pricey).

The last time I was at Mount Coot-tha, one of my girlfriends Meagan and I had ventured to the Summit track, which is a beautiful 2km hiking (easy) trail near the lookout area.  There is a selection of sixty-six different walking trails in the Mount Coot-tha area, for all fitness levels and ages. You will normally see hundreds of runners, hikers and cyclists training up and down the area – given its cycle hill training 10km loop (so please take care driving!).

On Sunday, we decided to take advantage of the rain-free weekend (Brissie has been a bit soggy lately!) and headed off for a cost-free morning (aside from our Sunday-morning coffees – because, Sunday).

It only took 15-20 minutes for us to drive from Balmoral to Mount Coot-tha and although parking is limited, you are usually able to find a parking spot a bit further down the road. There are also buses and if you are feeling athletic, it is a really popular walk there and back!

For a list of the Mount Coot-tha tracks – click here.

Once you head back down the hill you will find the Botanic Gardens (again, free entry) and the entire grounds are just beautifully manicured and filled with something for everybody.

If you are looking for a free day out, then do as we did and pack a backpack, some water bottles, your hat, sun cream and even a picnic – there are plenty of picnic areas to visit and head off for the day!

Please remember to stick to the walking tracks, only use the designated trails, keep your dogs on a leash, don’t litter, no fires, clean up after your pets and don’t interfere with the flora and fauna.

Enjoy!

Christmas Eve-Eve-Eve…and we are off to Sydney!

Good morning! Happy Christmas Eve-Eve-Eve!!! So I woke up and thought I would get a jump on my phone back up/last minute packing/trying not to stress about leaving my house for a week…..annnnd my Husband has just come out and told me that 5:30am is not awake time and I should go back to bed…

IMG_6681Anyways (I won’t be going back to bed) – I am sooo excited because today – we finally leave for our Christmas holiday/vacation! We are going inter-state for my Husband’s side of the families Christmas. My family and G and I live up in Queensland and his family lives in New South Wales…so it means many inter-state trips to Sydney etc., (and who could possibly be made about that?!).

IMG_6714Our trip this time is a little different and much more Christmas-on-steroids, because we will be sharing Christmas day with a very enthusiastic and kind 11 year old and a curious and sweet 9 year old. We have a few different things planned for them for the next week and I thought I would share them!

I had a bit of an incident with ‘Betty’, my beloved Canon 550D – the incident being she just stopped turning on (after I spent $80 on a brand new battery charger – of course). It was going to cost $200-$400 to have someone look at her to see what was wrong, but given she is nearly 8 years old and I could buy the same model for around $400-$500, sadly it just does not seem financially reasonable.

IMG_7792

So…my plans to purchase a new camera ahead of our Scandi-trip next year have been brought forward and I am now the proud owner of Dorothy (‘Dotty) – my new Canon 80D. Look I will be honest, Dotty and I haven’t quite worked each other out yet (in the words of Mariah ‘I don’t know her’), but I plan on becoming her BFFF over this next week (watch this space…).

Packing has been somewhat of a nightmare, honestly my own personal set of luggage scales has been an absolute life-changer!

We have some really cool things planned for Sydney, I cannot wait to share them with you. This trip is going to be really different because we are doing it as a family – so cannot wait to see how that goes in terms of activities and lines etc.,

Our flight leaves in a couple of hours, we will get into Sydney around lunch time and then we can make our way to Darlinghurst to check into our amazing lookingIMG_7816 Air BnB – its then time to Christmas the apartment up, before the little ones arrive tomorrow :).

Wising you all a wonderful December 22 – cannot wait to hear what you are all up to over Christmas!

P&O Comedy Cruise on the Pacific Dawn

For Christmas I was not too sure what to buy my Husband as his present. We had recently celebrated our amazing wedding and honeymoon only a couple of months before. So we had agreed to take it relatively easy on the present-giving. Except we both broke that promise and G bought me a brand new camera and I bought him (us) a three-night comedy cruise!

 

We had sailed with P&O Cruises last year for my 30th on the Pacific Aria, our three-night cruise was on the Pacific Dawn over the Anzac Day weekend. Luckily for us, the Dawn had a face lift before we were on her. All of the recreation areas had been done up and were looking beautiful. We had a balcony room because the ocean view rooms had all sold out and I 100% was not going to handle any sea-sickness in an interior room!

 

Our ship took off much later than expected due to technical issues but that really is not a problem because A) you are on holiday regardless if the ship is moving; and B) the bar is open whether or not the ship is moving ;). A three night cruise is completely different to a week long cruise (no, not just because of the timeframe), because you don’t feel as though you have to rush and take advantage of every activity on-board! You don’t need to feel guilty if you sleep-in, have day-naps, eat too much food and drink too many cocktails. This is the equivalent of a three-night weekend – but at sea and with no cleaning/cooking! Hooray!

Comedy Cruise 7

The Dawn is one of P&O’s older ships and has 11 guest decks, all of the new eatery options, waterslides (fun!), retail choices and also the P&O Edge Adventure Park. The beauty of cruises is once you pay for your tickets – you’ve covered your food, board and most of the activities. The additional costs you need to budget for is alcohol, bingo, whiskey tasting. wine classes, or if you wish to eat at Salt which has a cover-charge. In saying this, it is an inexpensive cover-charge for what you get! Dinner is only $49 per adult and that is unlimited sides, starters, your main and dessert. This is food by Luke Magnan – it is delicious!

Comedy Cruise 10

Salt restaurant also has a high-tea during the day, again at a very inexpensive cover charge ($20 I think it cost us) and is the ultimate day-date. A decent trade for the whiskey-tasting for G :).

Comedy Cruise 11

I love cruises, I call them my in-between holidays. When going overseas on a big holiday is not an option. They are so affordable – once you pay your deposit you can pay off your holiday over many years. You can now even load spending money onto your onboard account over the course of months/years – so you can plan ahead!

Comedy Cruise 8

My tip? Don’t pay full price. Wait for the sales which P&O have several times a year. Sometimes it is for additional on-board credit. sometimes it is free drink packages and sometimes you have the ability to upgrade your room for a small cost.

P&O Cruises– They’re having their Premium Drinks Package sale again now – so jump on it!

There are plenty of places to grab a drink, different shows and live music and of course daily trivia and games! We have been on three cruises with P&O now and I could quite happily go on a cruise every year!

Enjoy!

Riverfire, Brisbane

Brisbane Riverfire is absolutely one of my favourite nights in the CBD, I like Riverfire much more than I like New Years Eve (way too much pressure to have a good night…).

IMG_0014_2_8893

Brisbane has an annual Riverfire decorates and enraptures the spirit of Brisbane for the better part of the month of September each year. The city explodes into colour, joy and celebration & Riverfire is the final night fireworks display – which has a different theme each year and lights up the sky beautifully.

I have spent Riverfire out at Southbank, watching it from New Farm Park. I’ve watched it from the top of a street in Camp Hill whilst scarfing down Cold Rock ice-cream shamefully in my car. We have watched it from Riverfire at Kangaroo Point (highly recommend!!) and we have also watched it from the top of Oaks Aurora in Brisbane city.

I have gone quite a few times, it is one of my Mother’s favourite events and to be honest, mine as well. When you live in Brisbane, it isn’t such an arduous task getting into the CBD to watch the fireworks. My Husband is originally from Sydney, so he finds it hilarious that I can become frustrated waiting in traffic for half an hour to get from our house to the city :).

 

IMG_0038These pictures were taken from Oaks Aurora and you will see the view was amazing! We were eye-level with the Army helicopters and RAAF Super Hornets (AMAZING!!), could watch the river fill up with boats ready for the show and also enjoy the fireworks, from above. All in the comfort of our own unit, with snacks and drinks and not needing to wear shoes (always a solid plus for me!).

Also – the views look like this! If I had any photoshopping skills, I would remove the balcony, but I don’t and I couldn’t get the tripod any closer…so there it is!

IMG_0051_2_8961My best spots to watch Riverfire from (plenty of time to prepare for 2018…):

  • South Bank
  • Kangaroo Point Cliffs
  • Wilson’s Lookout
  • City Riverwalk
  • Riverside / Eagle Street
  • Riverlife (you can buy their drinks and dinner package which is affordable and has a great environment, as well as breezy location on the river); and
  • If you are after the fireworks only and not too fussed about how close you are to the action – then find a high vantage point anywhere within 10km of the city and you will be able to enjoy the show!
