Countdown to one month Freedom Eating programme

Not long to go now! Have you been helping your body help itself by cutting back on sugar? if not, why not start doing so, as opposed to stuffing as much as you can before the 'diet' begins? Because if that's what you've been doing, you're only punishing yourself! Isn't it time to try breaking free?

Freedom Eating for those who don't know, is the lifestyle system of listening to your body and reclaiming your birthright to be slim. I know it sounds cliched but it's totally true - in my books, Freedom Eating will help you unlearn all the social conditioning that resulted in your current antipathy towards dieting, addiction to sugar and pattern of putting on more weight every single time you diet. For those who want to know more, click on the links below and read the reviews, and the feedback on facebook groups and pages too. Or read the books!

I'm planning a week by week programme guiding newcomers through what to do , step by step, if you love to be led. it will begin the end of March after Easter. If you're going to have sugar, at least do it the freedom eating way. 

Anatomy of a Binge.

This was one of the most controversial chapters in my original book, reproduced in full in Book 2.0. In it, I list all the foods I ate in one 12 hour period - some people would never believe it. Yet others amongst you would say 'is that all?' Read it and see how you compare, if you've ever been - or still are - a binger. It's quite scary really, because getting to satisfied then saving the rest till later is one of the most liberating experiences ever. And it only took me 37 years to discover it. Yes I grew up amongst a family where nanny would sit forcing the rest of her dinner down her, and was from the generation who told each other 'you've done well' if they finished a heaped plate. Mum did some of that too. So it was a total relief to find out it wasn't how we were evolved to be. Stopping at satisfied is about a fistful of food each time - but wait a few hours and you'll be hungry enough again (6 on the hunger scale) to have the rest. There's no 'you can't' only 'listen to your body.' And that's why this system worked for me and so many others, and works where others fail. Because it proves we are human.

Guises of Freedom Eater

Another innovation is acknowledging that there's no one-size fits all. In Book 3.0 (2016) I identify six types of Freedom Eater - many of whom were inspired by the posts I was reading over the last two years on Facebook group 'till the Fat Lady Slims' (come join us). Which will you be? Do let me know.

Preparing for the One Month Freedom Eating Programme

Previous blogs have helped by indicating how gut bacteria may be helping to create problems in your attempts at dieting - do use the archive below left, and catch up. Then do kindly read through at least parts one and two of Book 2.0. If you'd like a teaser before you buy, remember amazon do a free 'look inside'.

Other news –

-          Is fermented food a recipe for good gut health ?

The answer is yes! Even the BBC is spreading the word. Yay. Lots of basic info in this article for those who are curious. And don't forget the best thing to do is to listen to your own body as it will tell you what is the most effective. Look at your own ceases and follow the Bristol scale of what looks like A perfect poo. But do you start getting some of this stuff into your body. They should have also mentioned about what not to eat though because nothing will overcome a diet rich in sugars and processed rubbish or someone taking antibiotics over and over again and wondering why they has a dodgy tummy. Good info here thank you Garry X

-          8 anti-inflammatory ingredients to eat now

Another interesting take on why omega three is good for you. It's listed in these ingredients and lovely Joe tells us why :-) anyone tried any recipes with the other things he mentions in detail on this article? X

-          Drinking water could aid weight loss

On average, people who drank between one and three cups of water more than usual consumed 5-18 grams less sugar and decreased their cholesterol consumption by 7-21 grams daily.

Researchers said that it didn't matter whether the water consumed was through a drinking fountain, tap or bottle. It all had the same impact.

Sue Stewart;s Story

"I'm definitely a Linda. I lost my weight with Weight Watchers. I threw away my scales and only weigh once a week or so. But once I got to goal I found support wasn't there for me and I needed something else I my life. That's when I found your TTFLS group and Freedom Eating. It gives me the control of what and when to eat. It's given me more tools to live and lead a healthy lifestyle and not to be afraid of food! The support factor also is there with the group. What a great bunch they are. I'm also now happy to help them along their Freedom Eating journey too.

I'm a Linda eater.  I weighed 11st 4lb or perhaps a little more when I thought enough was enough.   I had looked at holiday photo's and deleted alot of mine.  I'm 5ft tall and basically I was fat.

My daughter was getting re married it was a white wedding and I didn't want to be the 'fat mother of the bride'.  It was my incentive to loose weight.   

All through the year's I had yo yo dieted.  Lost it, gained it.  

My help came from Weight Watchers.  I found a local group with a fabulous leader.  I could never 'point' my food , I just couldn't get my head round it.  All that weighing and pointing. But she helped with Filling & Healthy.  No counting I got to goal weight.  I continued to eat that way, but my weight started to become unsteady, a bit up and down.   I struggled with support, not from my leader, but from WW.  Around this time I found Debbie's TTFLS group and her TTFLS book. Bought the book and got support and tips from the group and have never looked back.  Ditched the bathroom scales.  It had clicked into place. How to freedom eat.  It was my light bulb moment.

My weight has become more stable and I've been let out of food prison.  It's helped me not to become the food police on family and friends and enjoy some of those treats with them.   I still go to WW to weigh and to enjoy the company and new friends I have made.  WW has changed to Smart Points now. I can point now.  But I No Count in other words I Freedom Eat.  

I eat good healthy meals. Cooked from scratch.  My attitude to food has changed.  I eat on the hunger scale and not to the clock. Stopping when 'full'.  Eating the right food. Even my husband has lost weight as he's had to have new clothes too!

 

I've bought a Bodyblade and joined a fantastic Facebook group of people.   We Bodyblade together and we virtual wobble with one another and virtual walk with one another. Bodyblade and walking has toned me.  It's even made me a much happier person.  Less shy and retiring.

I've learned to accept compliments and not to brush them aside.  I've learned how to give them too!  I've even done some modelling for our town centre.

From the start to today I've gone from 11st 4lb to 8st 2lb.  Dropped from a size 16 to size 8 in clothes, and found out that I even lost weight on my feet - how strange is that!"

 

Hasn't Sue done amazingly well? Am so proud of her and all my lovely people on my website who have adopted the more natural way to lose weight, which we call Freedom Eating. Let me know what you think of the book too if you get the new one - it's a companion to Book 2.0.

Firstly, the full cover of my new Till the Fat Lady Slims book 3.0 - it's so exciting! Out end of January. Go here to find out about book 2, to be read first. Then book 3 is the companion, great for maintenance and to answer many Q&A's. It will also feature Dawn Allen's story - some of which you can hear here. It will be on Amazon in eBook or paperback as usual. Can't wait to get your feedback.

 

It was the second to last Back to You this Monday (18th) at 8-9pm, featuring the lovely Emma from Imedeen talking about supplements.

Which made me think about the book 'GUT' again - especially when Marlene Watson Tara published a reminder of how to make your own 'sort out your intestinal bacteria' pro-biotics - with pickles!

She says on her blog that 'if you are dealing with multiple allergies, chances are your gut is out of balance and is in need of a daily dose of beneficial microorganisms. These crispy, sour, salty vegetables are highly addicting and an easy, economical way to maintain a healthy gut. These vegetables are also important to include daily for good health.' Go here to her website to find out more, watch her video, and discover how much of us is made up of these crucial symbiotic organisms - you may be surprised!:

Well it's here! The members-only Facebook group 'Back to You QVC' now has a sister page - where people can post links and tips and offers and deals that are not necessarily QVC related, all as requested in the recent B2U group survey.

Webchat

This week's webchat was with Fiona from Decleor and can be found on the Back to You QVC facebook group here (just ping a request to join the 4200 members!) Now it's a closed/members-only group, webchats will not be posted here any longer, but will happen each Monday 8pm as usual. 

In Bruce's webchat here on the Facebook group Bodyblade QVC, Bruce talked about what to do as soon as you get his clever fitness device out of the box:

"Once you open the box, start holding the Bodyblade in your hand. Even if you don't do anything with it, walk around simply holding on to it. Now, take the DVD, put it in your computer or DVD player and watch the LEARN section where I teach you how to hold Bodyblade, drive Bodyblade, and use the product successfully. Now, watch the Super6 workout. Even if you just watch, make sure you are still holding your Bodyblade in hand. Now, and this is very important, just try one exercise for 10 seconds. Not a whole workout but just one exercise. I only want to see short term goals. Today, I will pick up my Bodyblade, hold it in my hand, do 10 seconds of one exercise. When you accomplish that goal. Next day you do more. Each day you work toward doing the Super6 workout in some form. As the success rolls in, you won't want to stop, I promise you"

Check out the Bodyblade video in a whole show on our QVC Extra channels, repeated most days - for tV guide go here.

 

Imedeen skin supplements

Just a little piece about these amazing supplements, used by many celebrities, who don't get paid to use them, including Joanna Lumley who has used them for 20 years or so.

At the weekend I was on with Emma from Imedeen and a better than 'buy three get one free' pack - item 400667 - you can watch the video of our demo on the video on that page too.

Emma explained how taking the little sachet of 4 tablets every day has a 120 day money back guarantee. How is that even possible? Because they believe in it so much - if you don't see results within 120 days you can get all of your money back - 3-6 months is what you should give it. You might see big differences even on your body skin. Such fab reviews on the website too - here are some -

" I am now on my 3rd month of using the Imedeen tablets and I am now seeing wonderful results. It is a case of being patient, although some improvement was seen at the end of the first month. I have seen a substantial improvement in the depth and plumpness of my skin and lines and wrinkles seem improved. I was recommended to take these as my medication was causing havoc with my skin, despite having a high level beauty regime. Taken in conjunction with using my beauty products my skin now looks and feels better. Even had comments on how well I look. Will continue to use as I believe they have worked for me." 

The reason I'm focussing on this this week is because at the moment there's a 4 EZ pay offer which means you can pay just £41 or so per month over 4 instalments for 4 boxes (4 months supply) - instead of nearly £60 per box. And at this time of year many of us don't pay attention to what we eat so much, so this can be your insurance to help your skin cope this yuletide. What if you did see the results that so many of those reviewers see?

As far as my own skin is concerned I was very sceptical, given my own healthy eating and taking of supplements. BUT when Emma measured my collagen levels in my skin, they were 47 in January and three months later had gone up to 53  - a ten percent improvement, which she said she hardly ever sees. Later measurements showed them getting higher. And whilst they don't keep going up - they were lower recently during my super-stressful house move this summer for instance, it helps to know I've given my body the extra back up. How about give it a go? you have virtually nothing to lose, with its 120 day money back guarantee - where else can you get that?! Go for it now here - item 400667 

Other News -

- One sausage a day can raise risk of cancer There are other summaries online giving a more detailed explanation about this recent news article but here's the Daily Mail's take on the latest food health scare to hit the headlines - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2085889/Sausage-cancer-Pancreatic-cancer-warning-processed-meat.html  

- Vitamin D Can this sunshine vitamin aid performance levels in exercise and lower the risk of heart disease? According to one recent study maybe it can - "Around ten million people in England may have low vitamin D levels. On average, one in ten adults has low levels of vitamin D in summer, compared to two in five in winter. Because people with darker skin are less efficient at using sunlight to make vitamin D, up to three out of four adults with dark skin are deficient in winter.

"Our pilot study suggests that taking vitamin D supplements can improve fitness levels and lower cardiovascular risk factors such as blood pressure," said Dr Raquel Revuelta Iniesta, co-author of the study. "Our next step is to perform a larger clinical trial for a longer period of time in both healthy individuals and large groups of athletes such as cyclists or long-distance runners."

"Vitamin D deficiency is a silent syndrome linked to insulin resistance, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and a higher risk for certain cancers," said lead author of the study Dr Emad Al-Dujaili. "Our study adds to the body of evidence showing the importance of tackling this widespread problem."

Please read this book if you've tried everything and failed, 13 Oct. 2015  

This review is from: Till the Fat Lady Slims 2.0 - the 'When' Diet: Break Free from Food Prison Forever (Freedom Eating) (Kindle Edition)
Ms Debbie Flint's book has helped me to completely turn my eating and exercising habits from the worst possible no movement and eating everything in sight to now listening to my body and eating only when I'm hungry and I've completely changed what I eat too ttfls as taught me that sugar is the enemy and I have gone from eating ready meals, tin's and jar's of ready made meals or sauces etc... That all tasted great because they had so much sugar and many other nasties in them but because they said low fat my brain thought fabulous but now I've sugar detoxed and learnt to use freedom eating principles I have list weight inches all over the body I've got my bmi down to 25.7 my blood glucose is down to 4.6 and I now weigh less than I did at the age of 16 and I don't have to resort to slim fast or cabbage soup extreme diets if I put a few pounds on I just re-read ttfls and put all the knowledge and testimonies in there to practise and a week later in ok again I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who's tried all the diets out there and fails this is not a DIET BOOK it's a lifestyle changing amazing lifesaver of a book and I own it on my kindle and in this paperback version and if I could I'd get 100 stars

It makes me very proud.

Published in Back to You

An interesting topic was raised this week, which continued on Back to You QVC facebook group - about whether or not to convert the now-4000 strong group into a closed group.

The distinctions are clear - if it's open, anything you post or comment on appears in your newsfeed and all your friends can see it just as if you posted an update on your own page. If it's a closed group, anyone can find it to ping a request to join but only members can see and post. 

When we began the group it was in support of my on-air show, called Back to You, which ran more frequently than it does now. Plus this group has metamorphosised somewhat and maybe needs to keep up with the changing face of the group - and its needs - and its members' wishes?

Anyway - in the PS at the bottom, is what I posted about it, in the earnest hope of learning what most people wanted from 'their' group.

Join in the debate - and let me know.

 TAKE PART IN THE SURVEY TO DECIDE WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR FAB GROUP - GO HERE TO TAKE THE 6 QUESTION SURVEY NOW.

Doggy charity as you'll know if you've seen the announcement - we've set up a Just Giving page for a virtual online 'pub quiz' event on Monday 26th at 8-9pm (same slot as webchats) It's very exciting! We'll be asking for donations in return for taking part and hoping to help raise some funds to pay for the specialist freezers needed to aid the three year scientific cancer detection studies. Do read more and donate -

ps - this was what I posted in the Back to You group about a possible revamp, following on from discussions about the group and its relationship to QVC and being a closed group -

 

 SHOULD BACK TO YOU QVC GROUP BE A CLOSED GROUP?

Around 97% so far have voted for the group to be converted to a closed group. This would tie in with removing the 'officially endorsed unofficial group' because QVC insisted the group be an open one initially when I first launched it, to tie in with my on air shows. We will continue the debate - make sure your voice is heard! NB it is not a QVC group, and is not controlled by QVC social media team and never has been; it's run by a group of experienced admins who know how to create a great environment but they are voluntary.

"Ok the message is coming through loud and clear from the vast majority! Interesting reading girls isn't it. For those who don't know, Qvc required it to be an open group for the on-air endorsement I was given, in association with my b2u show. But times do change and the group has become so much more than the original purpose for sure. It's hardly mentioned on air now so converting to closed and therefore not being endorsed would not have so much impact. If it was truly independent I could leave the admin role too. And true independence would bring a rejigger of the pinned post , more exciting freedom too. Hmmm. Plus, Webchats would continue as before - they would of course not be affected as guests are keen to come on here to reach you guys - most are happily posting on many Facebook outlets now, their marketing people know it makes sense to actively promote - the more the better, inc here and our fab Qpage. Btw - Behind the scenes, following the recent success of my Webchats and other developments, I have just been asked to consider doing more on the official pages (on top of what I do here, not instead of), more for additional channels too, and also to come up with a proposal for some exciting web-only footage, or blog-only footage which I can share all over my social media as I do now, including here. What do admins think? What do others on here think? If I continue to share the content of eg Webchats, as I do now, elsewhere eg on my own Facebook page (which is completely open even to non-Facebook people!), no one would miss out on reading it. And almost anyone who wanted to join this group could continue to do so. (See my * on this below). Plus I have contributed towards bringing MORE content to the main qpage, of late, and as many of u may have noticed there is a stricter policy nowadays regarding control of trouble there. (Thank u social media team) So..."

let me know what you think - go to the Facebook group and make your thoughts known. Thanks! Go here.

I'm not asking medical help but just wondered if your microdelivery wash can be used on the body as well as the face please? Also, have I understood it right that Q will be becoming the only UK supplier of Philosophy? x

Corinne Koolmon Ceri Jackson Hi- I love hearing our philosophy customers wish lists- and I think that a "travel" set is a great idea. This will probably launch in the springtime- what products would you ideally like in the collection?

Corinne Koolmon Dawn Robinson Oooh such a hard question!! I find it hard to pick one. But I would probably have to say that is I was stuck on a desert island, I would need to have a GIANT microdelivery peel to keep my skin glowing (we have a supersize of this launching on saturday). And if I could choose another, I would choose "live joyously" fragrance...

Like · Reply · 1 hr

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Rebecca Warren, I would recommend for your sensitive combination skin, presuming it’s a little oily in parts, the Future Skin Range. It’s lightweight, and really calming for sensitive skin, and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles dramatically thanks to the Plant Stem Cell technology. The 4 piece set has the Neck & Decollete Fluid in it, which is brilliant for your neck. If you really want to see a difference in your lines/wrinkles, get the Cell Booster too (for day time, use the Night Cell Shot in the set at night), that is the real wrinkle buster! Hope that helps....let me know how you get on. Xx

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Jacqueline Jackson, well the Vitamin C range is a real 'brightener', and is a lovely range...if your skin is a little dry definitely go for the LLB TSV coming up, or if you want a wrinkle buster go for Future Skin 4 piece set plus the Cell Booster. They will all brighten your skin and give it a lovely Autumn radiance. Hope that helps....xx

Good evening Bodyblade Ohana!! I can not believe all the wonderful posts this week. Some showing how great your kids are doing, moms, sitting in a chair, great before and after photos (keep up the great work) and so much more. I can't believe we are almost 3,000 members strong (all thanks to you!!!). Tonight, I wanted to talk about practice and practice drills. Whether you are a professional actor, athlete, educator and so many more, you have to practice to become better at what you do. Let's talk about how to do what you are already doing well, even better. See you in about 20 minutes. As always, please post here so I can keep up with you.

Bruce Hymanson Maureen- Glad to hear that your husband is having success. Keep up the good work there. For your healing humerus, try to continue with exercise on the other arm until you are fit and given the OK by your MD to begin training the other arm. The Jab exercise is really good for the single arm as you can do int down by your side, out to the side or moving through a range of motion. It's kind of like the universal exercise because you can move through just about any range of motion to challenge or simply get started after a period of recovery.

Published in Back to You

Blog b2u Monday 5thhh oooct

Loved the trip to see the Medical Detection Dogs last week, and love that Gill Gauntlett, Patrick Quacker and Marie-Francoise Kipling are keen to help me raise the remaining funding taking my £5500 to the £11300 needed to train one puppy to help detect cancer or monitor a diabetic’s blood sugar, cutting their 3 year waiting list for an assistance dog. They truly are wonderful animals, just watch this –

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-34345620

 

Paddy the dog sniffed out his owner’s cancer at an early stage, probably saving her life as it’s hard to detect. Visiting the HQ reminds me I have no problems.

TTFLS / BODYBLADE UPDATE

Had some great reminders also this week of how lots of our ‘gang’ are helping themselves. Health improving, flexibility and strength giving rise to some super stories about daily tasks made easier and everyday challenges like standing etc, made less arduous too. Love them. Here are a couple –

Eileen Davies - Debbie Flint heres a list. Cant separate BB from ttfls as I started them more or less together, but think these are more BB. 1) Lift in energy generally, exceptional energy yesterday so much so that I was out gardening til dusk when I could no longer see the weeds 2) Lift in mood, keep finding myself feeling happy, a sort of joy 3) Enjoying exercise - even though Hampton Court still defeats me I know I am doing much more and stopping less, can now do the stretches too. 4) The walkers role call has me indoor walking too 5) Since swopping late night nibbles for a wobble I get to sleep real quick. 6) Not put the heating on yet - BB is very warming! 7) Feeling more comfortable in my clothes - maybe this should be top of the list but I didn't want to sound shallow!”

WEBCHATS

WEBCHATS – DARREN FROM STOP AND WOW , NEW BRAND FOCUS

BACK TO YOU WEBCHAT DR DARREN McKEOWN STOP & WOW 5 OCT 2015

 

Jill Dowding-Walker How old is he? Looks about 18

Sharon Harvay Well...you've asked him now wink emoticon x

AJ Humph Do you use this product over moisturised skin and do you use it all over or just on problem area ?x

Sharon Harvay Hi Darren,

Thank you so much for joining us for a webchat! Your Stop & Wow product sold out super fast! What made you decide to create a skincare line? X

Debbie Flint Have a fun webchat Darren. Hope i do a show with u at some point! Dont forget to tell us a bit about your background x

Darren McKeown I actually LOVE this group already - thank you Jill Dowding-Walker. You've just made my day smile emoticon xx Looking forward to our chat tomorrow grin emoticon

Darren McKeown Thank you Debbie! I will do my best to give the edited down, quick version of my background so as not to bore everyone!

Darren McKeown AJ Humph my preferred way to apply is to put it on after moisturiser although you can mix it with your moisturiser for a 2-in-1 application. You can apply to specific problem areas, although again I prefer to use it over my whole face (although maybe thats just because my whole face is a problem area lol) xx

Sharon Harvay Lol xx it's not Monday yet!

Darren McKeown Sorry Sharon - I got overexcited

Debbie Flint Haha you'll run out of questions! Lol x

AJ Humph Thanks Darren McKeown xxx

Sharon Harvay 8pm tonight do post your questions! How are you finding stop & wow? X

Denise Hensby have you tried it Sharon? if so what did you think

Jill Dowding-Walker What is in it?

AJ Humph Hi Darren would you use a primer aswell ?

Darren McKeown Evening ladies!

Darren McKeown The product contains a micro particle that sits within minor skin imperfections, deflecting light from entering them and creating an instant blurring effect.

Sharon Harvay HI Darren so lovely to welcome you here to our fab group!!! Hope you have had a great day! Tell us a little about yourself x

Darren McKeown If you have tried other 'blurrer' products in the past you may have found they tend to pill under your make up - but this one doesn't. I've spent a lot of time perfecting the formula so that you can either use it on your skin alone, or under your make up.

Darren McKeown A bit like a primer AJ, but so much more than a primer.

Darren McKeown It also contains a light reflecting technology - but a super refined particle so that it doesnt leave your skin looking glittery.

 

Darren McKeown Thank you Sharon - I am excited to be here! I am a cosmetic doctor - my job is to help women look as best as they can throughout the ageing process. My philosophy is 'less is more' - I developed this product, would you believe, to actually keep women away from my clinic.

Sharon Harvay HahahahahahahahaHa!! It is such a lovely product! and to answer a previous question, i have used it and it is amazing as a "Primer" and really made my open pores "dissapear" great for either make up on or off days yay x

Darren McKeown A lot of people are now getting semi-obsessed by medical procedures to keep their skin looking good and they are becoming over-reliant on cosmetic treatments. I want to move away from that again. I developed this products for the days when you may feel like your skin needs an extra boost, and there is a temptation to think about procedures - but this is for a quick fix at home.

Sharon Harvay Fantastic

Sharon Harvay How did you get into the industry you are in?

Darren McKeown Cosmetic medicine was always going to be career in life. I went to medical school with a very clear vision of where I wanted to end up - I am attributing a lot of that to my very glamorous and appearance conscious mother and grandmother. I get the concept of wanting to look good and I really love helping women to achieve that.

Darren McKeown I initially trained in surgery, but prefer preventative cosmetic medicine instead now - my work is all about the long term relationship with my patients, looking after their skin throughout the years.

Sharon Harvay Wow - That is amazing! You also do lots of talks on this subject and appear on lots of Tv shows about it too. Is it hard to bring out a new skincare range with so much competition? x

Lorri Vick I havent tried this yet. Have a feeling i need to

Darren McKeown  It is a tough market Sharon - but my products aren't made off the back of some corporate market research network. They are borne from my experience of working with real women, from a whole range of backgrounds, with a whole range of ambitions and desires, day in day out and gaining and a first hand understanding of what they really want and what their skin really needs. I am hoping that by sticking to those core principals and observations the products will strike a cord.

Darren McKeown Lorri Vick if you decide to try it, please let me know what you think! I love hearing feedback today.

Darren McKeown In fact, just today one of my patients was telling me she is using it for the back of her hands! I actually hadn't thought about that before, but she swears by it!

Lorri Vick Definitely will Darren x

Lorri Vick Are your other products on QVC?

Sharon Harvay Wow!!! amazing!!! I love the texture of this particular product, its so beautiful, and light!! You cannot even feel it on the skin. Will you be bringing more from your range to Qvc? x Congratulations by the way on the huge Sell out show x

Darren McKeown Lorri Vick My other products aren't there... yet Michael James Hamlyn Hi Darren, thanks so much for doing this! It's always great to see men within the beauty industry, and I'd be really interested to hear how stop and wow works for us guys...

I also always like to ask the guests what there guilty pleasure is. Mine is Lego... Not that I'm that guilty about it!

Lorri Vick Lets hope other items follow soon!

Sharon Harvay ........yet........hehehehe x

Jill Dowding-Walker What ages can use this product? How does it perform on a variety of skin types? Would it be suitable on oily complexions?

Darren McKeown Yes Michael this is definitely for us as well! I never leave the house without it. Erm, guilty pleasure... going to the gym on a Monday night after work and then coming out to eat Chinese take out for dinner

Darren McKeown Hi Jill - this can literally be used by any age and any skin types. It works a treat on oily skin!

Sharon Harvay Hahahahaahahahahahahaahaha

Darren McKeown I know Sharon - caught!!! Just so long as my other half doesnt read this or I will be well and truly dead!!!

Sharon Harvay Darren thats so funny....but easily Justified

Darren McKeown This is what happens when I get left home alone to fend for myself Sharon Harvay!!

Sharon Harvay Ok, after a long day in the "office" which is fascinating, and after the gym and after eating chinese, after the gym......how do you relax?

Janie Smith Laying in bed here still feeling really unwell and knowing my skin is suffering! Will this product really bring my glow back?

Michael James Hamlyn Haha! Brilliant - Think that's allowed! It's people coming out the gym and lighting up a cigarette I don't understand!

I haven't had a chance to see a presentation of your product yet sadly... How does it work, where does it fit? I do currently have a good cleans, tone, serum and moisturiser routine, and have been known to be partial to a bit of BB cream too...

Denise Hensby it sounds really good i have large pours so will give this a try, thanks for all info great help Darren

Darren McKeown Hi Janie - you will literally see the benefit as soon as you apply it. It is not the sort of product you need to keep using to eventually see the benefit. I like to think of it as a hybrid between a skincare product and a cosmetic product!

Darren McKeown Ah, Michael - I am the exact same routine as you! This goes after the moisturiser and before the BB.

Darren McKeown Denise Hensby - I hope you like it. We are back on QVC on 16th so you can see a demo of the product then. xx

Janie Smith What are the key ingredients that make it so effective?

Janie Smith With use will it also give skincare benefits?

Darren McKeown It is our special spherical microparticles that camouflage imperfections Janie and our super fine light reflecting technology. It is an instant hit 'quick fix' type product Janie rather than a long term benefit skin care type product.

Sharon Harvay Forgive any spelling errors from me dodgy keyboard.....

Sharon Harvay So Darren, in a nutshell...Who needs this product and why?

Darren McKeown I hadn't even noticed Sharon... although I dread to re-read my own posts. I have been speed typing here like there is no tomorrow!

Sharon Harvay You are doing fab-thank you x

Darren McKeown Sharon  this is for every woman (or man) who sometimes looks in the mirror and thinks 'my skin just needs a quick fix'. It could be open pores, dull skin, rough skin texture. Just that missing 'x-factor' from your skin. It doesn't matter what age you are - the technology works the same to camouflage and perfect. I really loved the before and after picture on your blog post - I thought that illustrated the 'air brushed' effect PERFECTLY smile emoticon XXJill Dowding-Walker What would you recommend to keep the skin in as good condition as possible naturally, before using your products (or any others)?

Sharon Harvay thank you.....will find it

Darren McKeown Honestly Jill there is one thing that I tell EVERY woman who comes to see me for the first time, regardless of age, sex, race. SUN PROTECTION. Keep your skin out of the sun and I promise you will love the way you age. There really is no product or procedure out there that is as good as sun protection.

Sharon Harvay i tried to zoom in too, to show it. Amazing x I Know its not the main point, as many people have seen fantastic results on lines and wrinkles, but its an amazing base for make-up, creates such a smooth canvas, so thank you.

Sharon Harvay Abi Cleeve Qvc from Ultrasun will be thrilled you said that Darren!!

Darren McKeown 80% of wrinkles are caused by sun. 80%. Just think how many wrinkles could be prevented simply by avoiding the sun - not just using sun protection, but covering up in the sun, sitting in the shade. It really pains me on holiday watching girls who still bask in the sun.

Jill Dowding-Walker Fantastic Darren! I concur (and love Ultrasun)! That and a plentiful intake of water, clean diet and sound sleep! Darren McKeown It has been a pleasure chatting to you ladies (and gent!). I think that is now time for me to go and do the airport run... hiding the evidence of the chinese food before I leave! If anyone wants to post any more questions I will be delighted to answer them later

Lorri Vick Thank you for the chat Darren x

Sharon Harvay Back to you Qvc please give huge thanks to Dr Darren McKeown for joining us this evening after a very busy day! Darren it has been brilliant, thank you so much!! Look forward to seeing you (hopefully) and your products on Qvc 16Th Oct! Take Care and have a fun airport run xx

Bruce Hymanson Louise, warming up is not to be assumed as a stretching routine but, rather a mobility exercise to help the joints be ready for action. You most definately can use those exercises as a warm up routine.

Eileen Davies Debbie Flint heres a list. Cant separate BB from ttfls as I started them more or less together, but think these are more BB. 1) Lift in energy generally, exceptional energy yesterday so much so that I was out gardening til dusk when I could no longer see the weeds 2) Lift in mood, keep finding myself feeling happy, a sort of joy 3) Enjoying exercise - even though Hampton Court still defeats me I know I am doing much more and stopping less, can now do the stretches too. 4) The walkers role call has me indoor walking too 5) Since swopping late night nibbles for a wobble I get to sleep real quick. 6) Not put the heating on yet - BB is very warming! 7) Feeling more comfortable in my clothes - maybe this should be top of the list but I didn't want to sound shallow!

B2u tom doris bruce

So we had our second BigChat on the main QVC UK facebook page this Monday at 7pm, with lovely Tom Ogden from Alpha H. What a star he was – giving virtual consultations to many of the ladies who asked questions about their skincare regimes! Here’s an example –

Marie asked – “I'm almost 62 and have oily textured skin but it is mostly normal i.e neither greasy nor dry....what moisturiser should I use? I have some lines and a few visible pores. I use liquid gold every second night and Instant facial every morning...I love them.”

Tom replied – “Hi Marie! You are looking fabulous for your age…you might be my new Alpha-H poster girl (wink emoticon) I would recommend you use our Protection Plus Daily SPF 50 moisturiser for daytime. It's lightweight and non-greasy, but the lovely Pomegranate and Mango Seed extracts help to condition and brighten the skin. It also makes a great base for make-up and has a matte finish so it reduces any visible shine on an oily skin. Give it a try and let us know what you think (smile emoticon) Hope you like it! TomX”

Do go read the rest, especially if you have problematic, blemished or congested skin –

-          go here for Tom Ogden’s Alpha H webchat on main QVC UK page last Monday. And see below for next week’s exciting chat news!

And if you’d like to see the Alpha H range on QVCuk.com it’s here, plus don’t miss this Friday’s (tomorrow’s – 17th) live hour on the Beauty Channel – what a bonus!

Next week, the webchat is a special – 7-8pm on the main QVC page with me and the lovely Marie-Francoise Wolff from Kipling, when she will reveal some news! It’ll be fun! Go here to ‘like’ the Q page to be ready for the chats!

Plus – drum roll – none other than Laura Geller herself will be on our Back to You QVC fbk group from 8-9pm in the regular Monday slot. Come join us on Back to You QVC facebook group for a Q&A!

Trying Something Different

Okay so I have a little information to share with you, since I will be helping to promote Jason Vale the juicemaster on QVC. Regulars know what i think about drinking tons of fruit juice and that hasn’t changed. So they have asked me to use my social media to get the word out that he is on with his top-rated, masticating, slow-juicer on the 27th, therefore I have been researching it. I find my body is demanding certain of his vegetable juice recipes! Seriously, like, craving them! And I am carefully analysing what it is, about the recipe that is working for my body. More news about that soon. Meanwhile, I was sent some very good basic guidelines for preparing for a change in your eating habits – see below.

 

Best wishes have a great week

PREPARING TO SUCCEED.

Since I’m doing a five day juice thing soon, here are the principles Jason Vale’s team sent out to help make it work! Worth thinking about!

This by the way, is what they sent me in terms of preparation for the five days. And I think some of it is a very good list of principles for any lifestyle, let alone preparing for a juice diet!

Let me know your thoughts.

X
(1. Is get his app)

2. PREPARE YOUR BODY

The week before commencing your Juice Diet, cut down on unhealthy food and drink. This includes: refined sugars, processed foods, fatty dairy or meat, caffeine and alcohol.

3. EMPTY THE FRIDGE

Not always easy (especially with a family) but try not to get too much shopping in just before, as you’ll only be tempted by your abundant stores and also worry about wasting food that may not last until the end of the plan. If you will be feeding others, prepare at least a few meals in advance or plan quick simple meals so that you don’t spend too much time in the kitchen!

4. SLEEP, SLEEP & SLEEP!

Rest is as important as clean air, exercise, good nutrition and an attitude of gratitude. Allow yourself to go with it (if you can!). You’ll find that when you stop putting false stimulants (caffeine, refined sugars, etc.) in your body – you will naturally need plenty of rest to recover… Warm bath, early nights.

5. CLEAR YOUR EVENING DIARY

You don’t have to live like a hermit while on a juice diet, but it would be advisable to clear your evening diary to give your mind as much rest as your body.

6. TURN OFF YOUR TV!

Your juicy journey is not only designed to nourish your body, but also your mind. TV is one of the biggest mind polluters in our world and several studies have been done which clearly show that you not only burn less calories when watching TV than when even doing nothing at all (Yes – it’s true!) but people tend to think about food much more when mesmerized by the ‘life in a box’. It’s up to you, but swapping TV for a book will make a huge difference to how you feel at the end of the programme.

7. GET A JUICE BUDDY!

As with most things in life, they’re way better when shared with a friend. Why not get your friends or family on board to join you on your juicy journey?

8. EXERCISE

If you really want the maximum benefits from the diet, make sure you exercise twice a day. It is a myth that you need massive amounts of fuel before a 30 minute workout in the morning. Research has also shown that doing 2 separate high intensity workouts a day will have an ‘after-burn’ effect and will be around 40% more effective in terms of weight loss than if you did the full hour just in the morning or in the evening.

If you aren’t exercising much already, introduce some exercise before you begin your juice diet and then build up gradually. Always use common sense! If you feel dizzy, faint or weak during exercise, stop or reduce the intensity. This could be a time when you need your ‘SOS’ bar!

9. IGNORE THE ‘NAY’ SAYERS

Hopefully the majority of your friends will be supportive and encouraging throughout your juice diet. However, you may come across some people who question or criticise you saying things like ‘You’re having far too much sugar’, ‘Where are you getting your calcium/protein/fibre from?’. This is where the coaching videos really support you, to give you peace of mind by having Jason on board with you all the way! Go ‘Team Jason!’.

10. PAMPER YOURSELF!

Optional – but highly recommended! Your juicy journey will be greatly enhanced with a little, or a lot, of pampering.

I put it on at 9am, danced, sang, ate, drank and the sun shone on me (amazing but true) and it did not budge! Fantastic foundation! I'm the one in the zigzag top.

Doris Dalton Hi Pauline Daniel ok.. I have the same problem that you do and it is so important that you line your eyes.. So dont line from end to end. Start about where your lashes begin and slightly over not all the way in the inner corner. Make that line really thin and then gradually start getting thicker towards the outer corner.. make the line at the outer part of the eye go up and not down. I can do a tuturial on that.. that would be a great one for a video as well.. You need to do a true winged eye liner application. so thin on the innner to thick and upward towards the end.. (not too thick) so glad you love the foundation... xxxx

Karen Mercer I am absolutely loving everything I have purchased from Doll 10 since Sharon Harvay told us about the last TVs and am so glad I went for it. Your products are so easy to use and give great long lasting results! So a massive thank you Doris for bringing us amazing make up . Will you be bringing a brush set to the shows perhaps containing a foundation brush, big face powder brush, blusher brush and maybe a couple of nice shaped eye shadow brushes? Also you do the highlighting cream that was in the TSV but any chance of a highlighting shimmer powder in a puff perhaps that could be used on body and décolleté or in a compact to use with a brush to dust under brow bone and highlight cheeks?

Bruce Hymanson Christine, good question about the endurance of getting to a full minute. Start out doing what you can do in each exercise. That may be 10 seconds in one and 30 seconds in another etc. The goal is to make progress not necessarily daily but week to week or month to month. It's important to keep training and you body will automatically improve

Bruce Hymanson It also frequently comes up.....can I use the Bodyblade daily. Yes, yes, yes. You can keep it present and in your line of sight, pick it up and drive it for a few seconds or a minute as often as you like throughout the day. If you are going to complete a full Super6 workout, I'd recommend 3-4 times a week but you can also pick up the blade daily even if you are working 3-4 days a week. Hope that makes sense

Eileen Davies To develop a BB habit, do you suggest daily or less often wobbling? Despite dog walking at least 2 hours a day I could barely drive this morning after trying the video for the first time yesterday (I have been wobbling to Craig's TV presentation).

Bruce Hymanson Deborah, always good to leave a gap between eating and any exercise because after eating, your blood goes to digestion. Exercise, pulls blood to the heart and muscle. Give yourself 45-60 minutes before exercise after eating

Arline Jackson Hi Bruce. I'm having a bit of a problem with my left wrist, every time i use the blade I get pains in my wrist which take ages to go. Am not gripping too tight so as a physiotherapist have you any suggestions? Should I be wearing a wrist support ?

Bruce Hymanson Elaine- yes, you can keep your arms down in a jab or even lower to start working on your muscle endurance and strength. Remember, always seek the advice of your medical professional if you have any concerns beginning an exercise program

Bruce Hymanson Susan- Even with three C sections, you can train those muscles to increase their tone, endurance and strength. Sometimes, it's just a matter of activating those muscles again where it may have been difficult in the past. This is one of the great things about Bodyblade training. Those muscles will automatically exercise.

Bruce Hymanson Hi Rachael-The Cardioblade is small (30 inches) and the Classic is 48 inches. The Classic will allow a more progressive workout as the Cardioblade is designed to be very light and for children. I actually discontinued that model because I thought it was too small for most people even though the principles are the same and the blade will cause 270 contractions in the body.

RIP Wayne Dyer – my favourite self-help speaker. Big News – Webchats on Q Page – the line up is out! Webchat Q&A this week from Leigh, Tarte Cosmetics and Bruce Bodyblade. AND which big brand has joined my Medical Detection Dogs fundraising team?

Oh I was soooo sad this week to hear of the passing of one of life’s great men – Wayne Dyer, erstwhile QVC guest, self-help guru and genius writer, who died at the weekend. Such a shame – for all concerned but he leaves such an amazing legacy. I list a couple of my favourite books of his below. If you’ve never heard of him do read this lovely tribute on MindBodyGreen – go here.

For anyone in the wellness world, Wayne Dyer was a legend for his ambition and inspiration. As he once said, "There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there's only scarcity of resolve to make it happen." (The Power Of Intention).

He backed up his positivity with book sales that made publishers take the self-help category seriously (his first book Your Erroneous Zones sold over 35 million copies), and a career that lasted for four decades.

When I went through my own difficult transition time, when I left QVC, got divorced, changed jobs several times, learned freedom eating and rediscovered myself, his teachings inspired me more than anything else. Here are a few of the sayings he gave me, which also played a role with my own children. My son Brad even made a seminal piece of artwork for his A Level featuring some of his sayings.

‘Give up your need to be right.’

‘Be independent of the good and bad opinion of others.’

‘You’ll see it when you believe it … whatever you believe will be true for you.’

‘Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.’

‘what you focus on expands… you’ll just get more of it, including something you don’t want, if all you do is keep putting your attention on it.’

‘Don’t die with your music still in you.’

‘You’re not a human being having a spiritual experience, you’re a spiritual being having a human experience.’

‘Everything in the world is as it is meant to be… and so is your desire to change it.’

‘In relationships, if you have the choice to be right or to be kind, pick kind.’

If you wake every morning at 4am, ‘don’t go back to sleep, the morning breeze has secrets to tell,’

And if someone is constantly critical of you and your choices – ‘when I made this decision I didn’t have you in mind.’ (!!)

Or if they still keep on –  ‘you’ll get over it.’! Hah!

Here are ten more.

I loved his story about being a ‘Scurvy Elephant’ – google it.

Wayne Video – the power of contemplation and talking about his childhood here  and if you’ve never seen his work before, here’s one of my favourites -  I love this old one, ‘how to get what you really really really really want’ how to get what you really really really really want’ – watch it here.

And a more recent one is here – your reality is created by your thoughts.

Also - On his website right now, a chance to see his movie The Shift – “Wayne loved this film and wanted as many people as possible to see it and get the benefits of learning to go from Ambition to Meaning in their life. In memory of Wayne, we are offering all of you the opportunity to watch The Shift for FREE for the next 7 days. Here is the link http://bit.ly/1MZ0ijj

Pic of serena and wayne

What if he was your dad? What must it have been like to be in his family? Serena Dyer, one of his 8 children, tells more about it, and made me wonder what my life would have been like had I had this influence earlier. And whilst I had my own version of him – a mini version in my father (who died aged just 52 in 1992 but always listened to my grand ideas) – I have at least tried my hardest to pass on to my own children a few of the messages and powerful beliefs that his work gifted to me, at an important time in their lives. Go here to see what Serena says and to find out more about his amazing beliefs. I just wish they taught it in schools. And I just wish every parent would have that type of belief in their own children, especially before the age of seven (listen to ‘the Biology of Belief’ to find out why that age.)

His Work I would love to recommend his work to anyone who has difficulty coping with their stage of life, or with hardships, depression, loneliness etc. He’s amazing, and his work will live on forever.

Go here to see his books on Amazon – including Manifesting Your Destiny, Real Magic, Excuses Begone, and a good one to begin with – the Power of Intention, Change the Way you Look at Things and the Things you Look at will Change. More here.

I had the amazing experience of being able to say hi to him and get a little video done when I was at QVC and he was selling Excuses Begone, a CD and book set, in autumn 2009. And saw him at I Can Do It in London in 2012 with Craigy and my son Brad. So glad I did. And even though Goody and I will now not see him on Oct 1st in London, I will have some very precious memories of one of life’s greats. RIP Wayne Dyer, 1940 – 2015.

LEIGH FROM TARTE COSMETICS LIVE WEBCHAT 31/8/2015

 

Sharon Harvay Hi Leigh, Welcome to Back To You Qvc, so lovely to have you join us for a live web chat. Many congratulations on your Wedding too!Tarte Cosmetics seem to have taken everyone by storm! What is it you love about the brand and why? Xx

Sara Mahmoud Hi leigh, I'm new to tarte I only have the last tsv and the collection of 3 lip glosses and i love every single item. Will we be getting another tsv before Christmas ? And will we get the new energy noire collection anytime soon? I can't wait to build up my tarte collection, they are fantastic products. Xx

Nia Timothy Hi Leigh, just got a question about the maracuja oil - will it do anything for oily skin with open pores? Thank you! Xx

Sharon Harvay Sara did you manage to see the shows these past few days? Some amazing items x

Sara Mahmoud I did Sharon Harvay there were some amazing products but I thought I'd wait for a next tsv. X

Aly Quick Hi Leigh. I am a Tarte addict! Amazing products. I have several of the Tarte eye shadow pallets. Can I dip a wet brush into the colours and use them as liner? Will it ruin them or will they dry back to powder. I did it with Bobbi Brown once and ruined my pallet. I don't want that to happen to my Tarte.

P's, you always look so amazing!

Debby Lisa Ross Hi Leigh, just wondering when will the 24 hour blusher with the brush be coming back into stock? I also have the Amazonian clay waterproof eyeliner and wondered how the Prismatic liner and Tartiest paint liner are different, Thanks, I love Tarte cosmetics xx

Deborah Platt I absolutely love Maracuja oil and find it fantastic for my oily but dehydrated skin! I also love the eye cream but it has disappeared from QVCUK, is it returning please? Also, when are we getting Tarteguard please (I have had a sample and it is perfect as a moisturiser)? I love Tarte products!

Dawn Robinson Hello Leigh , firstly your brushes are absolutely brilliant ! I have the Clay Foundation i love the coverage & it lasts all day too xx

 

Claire Evans Will we be getting anymore sets before Christmas please, think I have heard rumours about a holiday bumper set??? Sooooooo excited already x

Lorri Vick Congrats on your wedding Leigh. I have used tarte since it first came to qvc. Adore the foundations and maracuja oil. Will we be getting the new foundation that i have recently heard about. Sorry have forgotten its name!! Xx

Dawn Robinson What Tarte products did you use on your wedding day ? You looked flawless xx

Leigh Griffin Hi Sharon! Thank for for the sweet wedding wishes! I have been with the Tarte brand for 7 years working closely with our founder Maureen on developing the products we all love so much. I love our brand because we are conscious of the ingredients and do not use which is hugely important to me because I have very sensitive skin. Our products are not only good for you, but they're incredibly high performance. I love that I can put my makeup on in the morning and not have to touch it up at all throughout the day.

Leigh Griffin Hi Sara! We do have another TSV coming in October and we are working on bringing the energy noir palette to the UK! Hopefully in time for holiday!

Leigh Griffin Hi Nia! The maracuja oil is really amazing for all skin types. It balances oil production while hydrating so you'll actually find that you breakout less!! It will really change your skin in a way you've never seen before!

Leigh Griffin Hi Aly! You can absolutely use our shadows as liners! It's one of my favorite things to do with my makeup!!  It won't ruin them!

Cherish Thomas more foundation shades please.

 

Leigh Griffin Hi Debby!! The blushes will be back in stock for our October visit! The tarteist liner is a thinner, more liquid formula and the prismatic liner is a cream! Both have excellent wear time!xx

Leigh Griffin Hi Dawn!! I'm soo happy to hear that!!!  you!

Debbie Flint Have a fab chat Leigh! Lovely to see u at the awards! You looked amazing! Xx

Leigh Griffin Hi Claire!! Yes!!! We have so many amazing sets coming up for holiday! Lots of values and new shades!! You can basically do all holiday shopping for the ladies on your list!!! Xx

Dawn Robinson Thank you x

Leigh Griffin Hi Lorri!!! Thank you so much! You are so kind! YES! I'm so excited that we'll be bringing the new foundation to the UK in Spring 2016!! Xx

Cherish Thomas Leigh we need more colour shades please.

Claire Evans Thank you Leigh, that's fantastic, I can't wait, yay!!!!!!! Xxxxxxx

 

Helen Flook Hi Leigh! I absolutely love this range - please can we have more colours in the lip butters? My real favourite is plummy rose. The brushes are wonderful, it's all wonderful!

Lorri Vick Woo hoo!! Something to look forward to smile emoticon xx

Cherish Thomas for foundation which will cover all ethnicities

 

Leigh Griffin Hi Cherish! I will absolutely work on bringing more shades!! Xx

Dawn Robinson My daughter has the eyeshadow pallett on her Christmas list x

Cherish Thomas Thank you. What a beautiful couple you make, had a sneeky look at your pics lol. Congrats!

Sharon Harvay Leigh you mention that the Cheek Tint was the first item created within the brand, did Maureen ever imagine Tarte would take off the way that it has? X

 

Deborah Platt Think you may have missed my questions Leigh, 5th from the start?

Leigh Griffin Hi Deborah! I am SO sorry!! The eye cream will be back!! Hopefully for the October visit! I completely agree re: the maracuja oil! We aren't planning to bring tarteguard until next spring unfortunately!  Xx, Leigh

Leigh Griffin Hi Sharon! Maureen's vision has always been to bring the best of high-performance naturals to women. She started the brand out of her one bedroom apartment in New York City with the cheekstain! She is thrilled that tartelettes all across the world are joining her mission to prove that glamour can be good for!

Deborah Platt And kind to animals Leigh, which is so important to me!

Sharon Harvay Isnt that just amazing!! How did she discover the amazing clay?

Deborah Platt Does Tarte plan to bring out more skincare to compliment the maracuja products?

Sharon Harvay Any hints on new product we can look forward to? x

Sharon Harvay it seems Leigh is having some connection issues, if you could make your perfect Tarte TSV, what would it be and why?

Yvonne Corser Next tsv?

Sharon Harvay October x

Deborah Platt Some skincare products, including maracuja oil would be lovely!

Leigh Griffin Hi Sharon! I've been working with Maureen on developing our products for years, so I've been able to create several of my dream products already! Xx

Bruce Hymanson

Yesterday at 19:30

Good evening Bodyblade Ohana! Just one week from now, I will be in London and on QVC hopfully with some of you!! Tonight, I wanted to talk about plateau. What is it? Do you feel as though you are reaching a plateau and if so, what can we do about it. If you are doing great with your workouts, feeling the difference and noticing improvement in your looks and how you feel, please share with the group. I'll be back at 8 O'clock!

Anne Keating Hi Bruce. How are you? You couldn't have asked a better question than do we think we've reached a plateau! This past fortnight I seem to have lost all my get up and go! And over the weekend I was picking up the Bpdyblade and putting it down without even using it. Not like me at all! Yesterday was better but do you feel that way ever? And should I just leave it or work through it? Although saying that, I really couldn't have. xx

Bruce Hymanson For a body builder, it may mean that no matter how hard they try, they can't get past a certain weight they are lifting. Not the case for us but we could reach a different plateau

Bruce Hymanson For us, as functional trainers, we can gain strength, endurance, muscle definition and a better performing body but after awhile, you get used to how well you feel and how good you look where is becomes the norm rather than something new and exciting

Bruce Hymanson So, sometimes, you just have to change things up a little. Modify the workout substituting one exercise for another or add squats or lunges or more trunk rotation. Even a little choreopgraphy (step back, step side, step forward, etc) to make it more interesting at times. Perhaps, do a new workout every day you train by visiting you tube and doing a different workout each day (3 x wk) for that week.

Bruce Hymanson Hi Jacqui, Have you looked at all the instructional videos and posts regarding the Hip & Thigh? Remember, strength has nothing to do with matching the rhythm of the blade. Well.....not entirely. You need to have strength but the most important factor is "speed". Quickness and coordination are vital to mastering the H&TS.

Sarah Price I think thats the BB secret for me, it doesnt feel like exercise and its only 6 minutes , if Im having a rough day I stop several times on every exercise if its a better day I fly through them , Ive learned to listen to my body

Bruce Hymanson That's great Anne! Any small change can make the difference. New scenery, one new exercise, changing the order are all variables that can work for us. I always try to do more inside the same minute. For example, If I am doing a chest press, I might try to rotate left, center, right as many times as possible in the one minute. Never compromise technique or safety but it is fun to challenge yourself

Bruce Hymanson Floor exercises can be challenging so do them slowly and in segments. You can sit and try the Chest Press on the floor. Then progress to the ab crunch position, side lying (bottom leg bent knee, hip on floor), then progress from there. The toughest will be the plank. You can try the plank and leave your hips on the floor. Gradually, try to raise them up. As I say, very challenging the plank

Bruce Hymanson Hi Julie, welcome to our family. Best way to relax is to shrug your shoulders to know what tension is, then let them go. See and feel the difference. You can also watch in the mirror if that helps you to relax. It's something that you will adapt to and find yourself relaxing more. Watch the LEARN section of the DVD for more about the common driving errors.

Debbie Flint Hi all! Fab chats as usual! Remember next week, Bruce himself kicks off the new September series of chats on main Qpage - chat there with him at 7-8 then he joins us on back to you group 8-9, for one week only. How about that! He is a star! X

Published in Back to You

An interesting topic of conversation came up this week with a lovely lady whom I will call Ros, who private messaged (PM) me on Facebook with a typical problem I’ve been asked about before. This is what she wrote –

“Dear Debbie. Hope you dont mind messaging you. But I feel you are living in similar circumstances to me.... Single mum, live alone, kids away (mine at uni 23 & 19). You always seem so happy , content, bubbly n full of life. While I'm so unhappy, lonely n feel my life is empty. I work fulltime but feel I only live to work! Any advice or words of wisdom hun. Sorry to disturb n bother you.  x. Your new home looks so lovely”

It really disturbed me that someone should seemingly feel so unworthy and alone, and I really felt for the lady. For those who don’t know, I had a similar era in my own life including being treated for depression for 6 months in the mid 2000s. This was my reply, and it’s a good one for anyone else in the same boat –

Bless you Ros,  you have to get to learn to love you. There are lots of self help books that really helped me get comfortable with life and whilst we often look for others to fill a gap or fill the time, it's best we fill it up with ourselves. I'd suggest getting into a guy called Wayne Dyer, he has many many books and audiobooks that I love so do feel free to try those and come back and let me know what you think. Also join our groups if you haven't already, back to you QVC, I'm a QVC UK Queen, Bodyblade QVC, till the fat lady slims etc- , lots of other people in a similar situation who all like to chat and support each other, it's a great network. Don't be sad - time to get on with your life and change your expectations I would say. Also a really important thing is don't eat any crap, it makes me depressed if I do. And also exercise every day even if you just march on the spot for five minutes or dance around for five minutes or do one minute on the Bodyblade it makes such a difference big hugs x

To that I would also add cut right back on sugar. A ‘treat’ which spikes your hormones and fouls up your body’s inate delicate mechanism used to keep it in balance is not a ‘treat’ but a punishment. Here’s why – click here.

Ros is now well on her way – she tells me she has joined the groups (not her name) and has begun exercise. I do hope it helps. The most important thing to do is to stand guard at the door of your mind as it’s the most dangerous thing in your life, if you find yourself sad at being alone. I’m never lonely now, even when I’m alone. I might need to get out more, but not till I’ve enjoyed my new home for a few nights in! lol.

BACK TO YOU LIVE WEB CHAT A'KIN-Monday 17th August 8-9pm LISA MCARTHY

 

 As pioneers of natural skin and hair care products that genuinely work, [A'kin] continue to be driven by their founding principles, including a passion for pure, natural and effective ingredients and a genuine concern about ingredient safety in personal care products. This philosophy is known as “The Power Of Purity" – the power of combining pure and natural ingredients. Please post your questions to Lisa McCarthy here! — with Lisa McCarthy.

Dawn Robinson Brill looking forward to it xx

Lisa McCarthy Can't wait ! Please can you share the link to the latest blog piece you have written about our New Eye Cream?

Lisa McCarthy Looking forward to talking to you this evening! I have some great photos to show you of people testing out the Purely Revitalising Lifting Eye Cream with Incredible results on real people! And i can't wait to tell you all about it's amazing pure ingredients and what they can do for you!

 

Dawn Robinson Hello Lisa , I really like the sound of the Rosehip Oil , My one daughter has very sensitive skin would this be suitable for her she's 22 ? xx

 

Dawn Robinson The packaging is beautiful too ive been looking at them on Sharon's blog xx

 

Lisa McCarthy HI Dawn Robinson & Sharon Harvay, great to be here, thank you so much for having me. Such as great question Dawn thank you we like the red boxes too and Sharon's blog is fantastic, I love the photos! [A'kin] Pure Radiance Rosehip Oil is suitable for all skin type especially and skin of all ages. It helps to desensitise sensitive skin in particular and protect from external pollutants to calm and soothe skin. Cleanse the skin so its slightly damp and take two drops to start in the palm of your hands, then press this in to your skin and follow with your moisturiser. You can use this day and night. This will ale help strengthen her skin so it feels so much more comfortable. The {A'kin] Pure Radiance Rosehip Oil is really concentrated so you only need a small amount. It's perfect for this time of year too as the sun can activate lots of allergens in the air that can make our skin extra senstive. xx

 

Sharon Harvay Hi Lisa, Thank you so much for joining us this evening. It is such a pleasure to welcome you back! So looking forward to you telling everyone about your beautiful range and the new Lifting Eye Crème which is fabulous!! Thank you for the blog compliment!! Its easy when the products are as wonderful as yours x

 

Dawn Robinson Thank you so much Lisa, could you use a small amount on the elbows & heels ? Xx

 

Sharon Harvay From Debbie Flint : Debbie Flint hi all ! I'd like to welcome Lisa from A'kin to our group and ask a few things to kick it off! Firstly, tell everyone who doesnt know, what are the real USPs for your brand hon? why buy A'kin? Secondly why is it called A'kin? And what are the true iconic products from the range and what do people say about them? x

 

Lisa McCarthy Thank you Sharon it's pleasure to be here. The Purely Revitalising Lifting Eye cream in the blog was created from all of our customer feedback- Its a real challenge due the structure of the skin around the eye is so complex due to the movement of this skin and the fact there is no support for the skin around the eyes so to develop an eye treatment that meets the needs of all our customers feedback… who are concern with Fine lines- just starting to see lines appear and want to take action,Deep Wrinkle/Crows feet- deep lines heading towards the hairline-genetics Uneven tone- pigmentation from over exposure to the sun Dryness- the skin feels tight and two sizes too small, Sensitive eyes- Prefer Fragrance free, Contact Lens wearers Dull- micro circulation congested, eye are lacking radiance Dehydrated- people staring at computers screens all day, Crepey eyes longing to feel smoother and fresher Make up sinking in to the skin not smooth. Tired eyes- long days, Shift work just the day job, New baby Quickly absorbing -we are all so busy! Treatment for no make up days It’s so important to get it right!!!

 

Dawn Robinson I like the sound of that "" treatment for no makeup days "" x

 

Sharon Harvay Perfect for everyone!!! Lisa, was it long in the making? x

 

Lisa McCarthy A'kin is an Australian Brand and have been creating pure natural products for over 15 years!

 

Lisa McCarthy A'kin are known for their power of purity creating gentle products that are so effective and incredibly gentle on the skin

Lisa McCarthy Yes, the product was three years in the making! Most products have to be tested for at at least three months we took three years to get this right and results are incredible!

Sharon Harvay I have mine here and the texture is stunning x

 

Lisa McCarthy The name [A'kin] means likeness as in a likeness to nature. We carefully select effect ingredients that can mimic actions in the skin and deliver better results than that from formulated man made ingredients.

 

Dawn Robinson My husband suffers with psoriasis would this help if he tried it x

 

Sharon Harvay Jill Dowding-Walker am I right in thinking you are also a fan of the Rosehip oil? x

 

Sharon Harvay Jo Brown was this range one you were thinking about too? x

Lisa McCarthy For example the Purely Revitalising Eye has the most amazing plumping action on wrinkles and leave the skin silky smooth- this is because we use Echium oil which is natures resurfacing oil it will plump up wrinkles in seconds and avocado oil to protected and weather proof the skin , no fillers required!

Debbie Flint HI :Lisa - am with miceal! he says he loves the rosehip oil!

Sharon Harvay oooohhhhhh can I have a bucket load for my body please? I have to say, I took it away with me last week and as exhausting as my holiday was (activity led) my eyes always looked fresh, and awake.

Sharon Harvay Hi Debbie!! Hi Miceal x

Lisa McCarthy All you need is the size of a grain of rice apply with your ring finger and smooth this all around the eye area. Also put any traces left on your lip line and that area in-between your eye brows ( my favourite trick)

Debbie Flint he says it helps with combination, reactive, sensitive skin, all of which he has! He says hi! x

Lisa McCarthy HI Miceal! great to hear your loving the rosehip oil! Its perfect for a combination skin as it helps purify the skin. the oil will penetrate to the lower layers of the skin within three hours and start to detoxify and strengthen the cells its all the omega fatty acids also great for reducing inflammation which is why its perfect for sensitive skin xx

Dawn Robinson Gosh this would be fabulous in a body butter with all those beautiful natural ingredients xx

Sharon Harvay Fantastic, I truly love that oil, I love the colour, the earthy smell, the slip. Its great after being in the sun and also on slackened skin I have found x

Lisa McCarthy The other great thing about the the Purely Revitalising Eye Cream is using it as a mask. Put about a pea size amount on this time and leave for 10 minutes to smooth soothe and brighten the eye area!

Jo Brown Sharon I'm always adding to my wish list! I'd heard of A'kin from my travels and links to Australia, but not tried it yet, but it's even mentioned on my go to cruelty free beauty pages for having an entirely vegan range. Look forward to trying some products in the future

Debbie Flint Me and miceal say hi ! Enjoy the chat! I'm off to meet simon wilson (that's the top i'm wearing!) for the 9pm show! Hugs to all! X

Debbie Flint Final question- lisa, tell us about your background how you got into beauty and why you chose to work with skincare? X

Sharon Harvay Yes!! I remembered something Jo smile emoticon very kind to animals x

Dawn Robinson Hello Debbie & Miceal x

Sharon Harvay Lisa as a mask would I take it over the eyelid too? Excuse my make up free eye!

Jo Brown seriously I could've tested it to the max....over worked vegan nurse lol, even the bus driver told me how tired I looked when I got on!

Lisa McCarthy The Echium Oil is one of A'kins most powerful ingredients, it turbo charges smoothness in the skin and is clinically proven to be as effective as synthetic retinol A. Its natures resurfacer and is also in the cellular radiance serum.

Dawn Robinson It looks lovely & light Sharon x

Jill Dowding-Walker Yes, I love A'kin products, especially rosehip oil. It can be mixed into any natural base cream, oil or lotion to supercharge it Dawn! I have very fair, sensitive, easily irritated, allergy-prone skin. Currently covered in a rash from who knows what or where or why! After my shower tonight I will be treating it with the rosehip oil to strengthen and protect those easily upset skin cells! x

Lisa McCarthy Sharon Harvay you could try it on the eye lid sounds great suggestion, i love that fact it can open the eye area surround the eyes so it makes your features look brighter and bigger!

Helen Murphy This would be a new range for me. Could you tell me the best place to start please? Am 46 and have combination skin.

Jill Dowding-Walker I love the unscented range of A'kin products - my secret weapon when everything else stings or hurts my skin! x

 

Dawn Robinson Thank you so much Jill x

Lisa McCarthy Jo Brown thank you-yes we are endorsed by the vegan society and vegetarian society in Australia. We also won the green parent award for best facial oil for the rosehip oil x

 

Sharon Harvay Yes!! Dawn it is so light, in this photo I have used a little extra as Lisa just suggested so am sitting here in my dimly lit room, relaxing with it as an eye mask. It is so cooling on my eyes which are tired today, it does not feel greasy or heavy. It just sinks in and leaves my eyes open and soft and lovely.... will take a photo now hang on x

Helen Murphy That's is superb Lisa. My daughter has sensitive skin so Jill Dowding-Walker the rose hip oil sounds good for her.

Jo Brown That's great Lisa, I follow other brands to see what trends are but my preference is always to support those that are entirely vegan and cruelty free. Plus I'm 40 next year so any excuse for stocking up on some new beauty treats

Lisa McCarthy Debbie Flint I got in to beauty when i was 19 years old i had the most awful skin, I started to discover how natural ingredients were more compatible with skin. I realised i reacted to everything and my skin would go in cycle of flaring up flaking, going oily and break outs! I then discovered oil and that was it i love results and knew that i could make a difference to other people.

Jacqueline Jackson Good evening Lisa I've been using the rosehip oil and the lavender and rose night cream and they are both lovely. I read about them on Sharon's beauty blog and decided to give them a try and I'm really happy I did. I haven't tried the eye cream yet that will be my next purchase I think. I wanted to use something natural as I eat organically and so thought I should try using less chemicals in my skincare too. X

Sharon Harvay Sinks in beautifully x

Lisa McCarthy As technology and research has moved on we are are getting closer to nature than ever before. A'kins products are so pure it is as if we creating recipes from natures garden, effective but gentle a skin respecting cocktail of ingredients with abidance of nourishment for the skin, omega fatty acids ( rosehip oil) antioxidants such as Camu Camu soooo powerful!!

 

Helen Murphy Would be fantastic to have a try me kit on QVC rose and lavender night cream sounds amazing

Nayna Patel Is this range good for hyperpigmentation and sunken eyes with dark circles please.

Lisa McCarthy Ok let me tell you about camu camu it is 30 times more powerful than bits c from an orange 4 x more powerful than goji berry and x as powerful as blackcurrent this amazing ingredient is the brightening element in th purely revitalising Lifting eye cream it evens out pigmentation in the eye are and creates a luminous radiance!!

Sharon Harvay Thank you for the compliment Jacqueline Jackson smile emoticon

Sharon Harvay Dawn I will repost photos tomorrow during the day so you can see how amazingly bright it makes the eyes look as lisa is stating xx

Lisa McCarthy Dawn Robinson Hi you could try a little rose hip on your husband its not a pharmaceutical product however may help to reduce and smooth the skin- please do let know the results x

Sharon Harvay When are you back on Qvc Lisa and what products are you bringing? x

Jacqueline Jackson Are there any body products? Would love some x

 

Sharon Harvay And would you suggest Rosehip Oil for helping with Strechmarks after pregnancy or weightloss?

Dawn Robinson Yes sure i will x

Lisa McCarthy I am on QVC this Friday 7.00pm and i will be with the lovely Alison Keenan DEBUTING the Purely Revitalsing Lifting Eye Cream how exciting !!!!!!!!!!!

Jo Brown I'm inherently lazy with body care, I'm a fan of oils for hair, face and body, but basically if I can spray it on me and get dressed straight away I'm happy!

Nayna Patel Thanks Lisa camu camu....come to me need you in my life. Such a great name lol xx

Lisa McCarthy Yes Sharon Harvay i would recommend Rosehip for areas of skin that need repair, the rosehip oil has a low melting point so absorbs in to the skin quicker tha, coconut, or argan oil which is why its so effective. It get deeper in the skin with its richcontration of healing omega fatty acids and starts to repair the skin right from where the cell develop so that they are stronger.

Jill Dowding-Walker Jacqueline - their body washes, body moisturisers, shampoos, conditioners and hand care items are lovely! Hope QVC will do more of these!

Sharon Harvay And the Face mask!! I love the face mask x

Helen Murphy Sounds like we need more products on QVC

Jacqueline Jackson Thank you Jill will definitely check those out x

Lisa McCarthy Jo Brown You can use rosehip oil from your scalp, hair face body down to your toes. And ladies must tell you if you have over exposed your decollate area this summer spread the rosehip oil all over to help smooth and repair. And if your feeling continental take it over the bust area too!

Jacqueline Jackson Lol how big is your bathroom Sharon? lol x

Sharon Harvay ooohhhh la la!

Jill Dowding-Walker Mais oui, zut alors!!!

Hello Bodyblade Ohana! I hoped to check in an hour ago as I usually try to do but another travel day has me jumping around like a wildman. Only a few more weeks until I visit the U.K. and shows to be Sept 7/8. Today, I thought we could talk about the things you most want to do. When you are not in the best shape, you say to yourself, "I wish"....... so I could walk more or hike etc. I spent the weekend with friends and tried wake boarding for the first time. I try to stay in shape but I feel my muscles today!!! That's a good thing. How about you?

Bruce Hymanson Hi Tracie, I will try to find out what the delay is for the DVD. The come from Taiwan so it's a slow boat across the ocean. I will speak to my buyer to find out if the DVDs are in inventory so we can get them up on the QVC site. I thought it would have been weeks ago. Stay tuned. As for the bags, no progress for now. Sometimes a small project can take 90 days to get up and running, then samples, testing and approval. I'll keep you all informed on that. Thanks for asking.

Jacqueline Jackson Hi Bruce is there a limit to what muscles can achieve for example if you use the Bodyblade three or four times a week is there a point where you are just maintaining what you have got the muscles to do or are they always building and improving? Hope that makes sense.

Sara Brown Bruce, I had a bad virus recently and didn't do anything for about ten days. When I went back to super six I found it tough to get through. Was shocked at how quickly I'd gone backwards. By then found that the Hampton Court super six in the short quick rotation was the way to build myself back up. Thank you.

Michele Morris Hi Bruce Hymanson. There are two things I most wish for. First to try and get more balance between my left and right sides. Like many right handers my left side is weak. Secondly I have the good fortune to live in a rural area with lots of footpaths and nature reserves. However, I have a weakness in my right hip following a fall 15 years ago. I find I can't walk more than about 4 miles max without causing hip pain. So any tips to rebalance my body and build strength in my hip with BB please?

Bruce Hymanson Hi Jacqueline, depending on how you train your body, you can plateau or maintain a certain level of fitness. To improve, it is important to challenge yourself to either increase "Flex Intensity" or time or both. You can also add more movement during your exercises to challenge the body even further. Here is an example. Suppose you do the Super 6 workout standing in one place. Take the Chest Press for example. Try stepping back into a lunge or add squats while you are doing the Chest Press. The more you do, the more your body gets in shape and the more you will have to challenge if you want to do even more. A great problem to have, right!!

There are many ways to increase the challenge by doing both right and left arm exercises to take that "not so coordinated side" and train to improve. The brain is simply trying to learn how to do a better job communicating with the muscles. You learn from doing.

Bruce Hymanson Now, if you want to add new challenges to balance, you can stand by a chair, hold on, go to toe touch on one leg (or take it off the ground completely) while holding the back of the chair and drive the blade in a Jab position out to the side. Then, if you balance supports it, try doing without holding onto the chair. My personal favorite is to do a single leg stance doing the Hip & Thigh Sculptor and close the eyes!!! That's a great balance challenge. So start slow, hold onto the back of the chair, toe touch until you can stand on one limb and progress slow and easy. The good thing is all Bodyblade training will help dynamically improve your balance big time.

Bruce Hymanson Hi Helen, good to hear from you. The good news is even if you stop and lose your perma-habit for awhile, you can start right back up and your body says......thank you!!

Bruce Hymanson Hi Maggie, Bodyblade is really a key in back stabilization. The muscle around the spine plays a vital role in back health. I can't tell you how often people come to me with hip pain and upon evaluation, it's not the hip but referred pain from the lumbar spine. Take control and watch yourself get better and better.

Jacqui Stephenson just a obversation ive noticed since starting to use my bodyblade that im standing much straighter and the pain from my degenerative disc isnt so intense ,.

Bruce Hymanson Jacqui, great news. Gravity is our enemy and the better our body is prepared to "fight" the effects of being pushed to the ground all the time, the less pain you feel, the less fatigue you feel, the more erect you stand and sit and the more your body loves it!!!

Helen Murphy Must admit Bruce even though I haven't been using BB still notice my posture is better and still getting compliments on how much better I look. Jacqui that is one of the great "side effects" of the BB I have a quieter week this week so going to fit in some wobbling.

Bruce Hymanson being fit and functional is always a process. Your body is smart. The more you do, the better your body will respond. That's why perma-habits are so important. Your body knows that when you challenge it to do well, it will rise to the occasion. Even when you take time off from exercise, your body says, "maybe I should stay fit for awhile because they are going to start again and I want to be ready" The key is not to stop for too long because then you body says, Ok, they're on vacation and I don't have to do anything.

Lindsey Sweet Hi Bruce, sorry I'm late saying hi. I've had real bad back problems over the last 2 weeks, but i am pleased to say I am getting back into training again. I get so frustrated when my back goes, but I just stayed positive and done what I could do even if it was a lot less slower than normal, but I achieved it in the end. Look forward to your return I September. Take care. Have a good week smile emoticon

Tracie Wright Tracie Jane Bath wink emoticon I Think that is such an excellent thing for Bruce consider for putting together a dedicated wheelchair user Video . Bruce we Have a lot of Wheelchair users on here and also people who know someone with mobility issue that means they are always in a wheelchair . Please consider making wheelchair user exercise video that you can upload on youtube or this group or put into the Group Videos you have already done for us xx wink emoticon maybe some the Ladies on here would even volunteer to be the stars as they know what issues they have and what their issues with mobility are .
