from flab to fab - friday update!

So I'm already a week into my diet/fitness plan, I've been doing an average of 6 mile bike rides on the weekends, exercises on the wii fit and my pink stepper, drinking plenty of water and applying the Rodial slimming products every night.
I had a very cheeky Mcdonalds yesterday but apart from that I've been eating well and sticking away from fatty foods as best as I can. However I am super pleased with my results so far and I'm going to share my measurements with you all purely because it helps you get a better idea of my body shape and the results you may expect if you are a similar size. Obviously if you are larger you will probably lose inches a lot faster. And just so you all know I am roughly 5'9'' and on the large size of a size 10. I'm not paying attention to my weight as such because I find it changes constantly so getting the good old tape measure out is my preferred method of tracking my progress, and every few weeks I will be keeping an eye on my BMI.

Measurements before I started the programme (one week ago):
Waist: 29.5 inches
Hips: 39 inches
Thigh: 24.5 inches
Arm: 11.5 inches

Measurements today (one week on):
Waist: 28 inches
Hips: 38 inches
Thigh: 23 inches
Arm: 11.5 inches

Pretty amazing right? That's an all round loss of four inches already, in just one week of moderate exercise and with help from the following Rodial products:

I've definitely felt a big difference in how firm my thighs and tummy area are feeling. I have just been applying the products once per night as directed. They are all a gel consistency and smell really fresh and lovely, they don't feel sticky whatsoever and just sink straight into my skin which is always a bonus. The Crash Diet gel is meant to show main results after two weeks so by next week I should have a full picture on how well it works, but the Tummy Tuck and Arm Sculpt will take a little longer to see results as they are meant to be used for eight weeks.

I've also been using the Bliss Fat Girl Slimulator which I cannot recommend enough! I use it every time I'm in the shower or bath and I think it's been a big help with toning my thighs. If you are on a budget and can't afford all of the various lotions and potions definitely have a look at buying this on the Bliss website

I'm also going to be starting a course of both the Rodial Crash Diet Smoothies (which have had reviews of dropping a dress size in 2 weeks!) and the Crash Diet Sticks. I'm going to start off using the sticks to review and once I've used those up I will move on to the smoothies. I will update again on Friday with more detailed info my exercise routines, but so far so good!
