Promixx iX-R Vortex Mixer Review - Update

This is more of an Update than a Full Review but read on to find out what the difference is between the new updated Promixx iX-R Vortex Mixer versus the older Promixx 2.0 I reviewed over two years ago. In that earlier Promixx 2.0 review I go into a lot of details including some video of me mixing up some protein powder and how to thoroughly clean your Promixx Vortex Mixer.

Let's quickly go over some of the things that are the same with both the Promixx iX-R and Promixx 2.0 Vortex Mixers:

  • They both have high torque 16,000 rpm motors with rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries capable of mixing up to 20 beverage before requiring a recharge.
  • They both have the specially designed X-Shape blade which creates a perfect vortex to effectively blend whey proteins, nutritional supplements and liquids.
  • They are both 100% BPA & DEHP-Free.
  • They have detachable Motor base for improved portability & easy cleaning.
  • Have a 600ml capacity bottle with an ergonomic design for active users.

Here is the low down on what's been changed or improved on the new Promixx iX-R Vortex Mixer. For one they made some improvements on the USB charging port. The old Promixx port used a proprietary USB cable and my rubber port cover came off almost immediately. On the new Promixx iX-R Vortex Mixer, the rubber port cover is more durable and much easier to open up and the cable is now universal being that it uses a standard micro USB cable.

The Promixx iX-R Vortex has a newly designed lid that you can attach a strap to and the NUTRiPOD system has been simplified for easier use. The motor is now more powerful with higher torque quickly mixing your drinks in seconds with no clumps or bumps. You can even mix up scrambled eggs, cocktails, gravy and even baby formula with it!

The Promixx iX-R Vortex Mixer has some nice updates with it's latest version but best of all you still get an awesome portable self powered mixer you can take anywhere and make super smooth and nutritious beverages at home or on the go.

Carnivore Diet Update - 1.5 Month Follow-up - Workout at End of Video

So I have been on the Carnivore Diet now for a little bit over 1.5 months. For the first month stuck to the Carnivore Diet fairly strictly, sticking mostly with meat and some dairy products. After the month was up I did allow myself to add in some carbs on the weekends but still stayed strict with the Carnivore Diet Monday to Friday. I also tried not to go too overboard with the carbs on the weekend as I noticed if I did eat a lot of carbs then I would bloat up and retain water almost right away.

Watch my video for all the details about what I experienced While trying out the Carnivore Diet for a month straight. Overall I feel much better on the Carnivore Diet in terms of sustained energy, my stomach feels a lot better with virtually no bloating or water retention while even being able to lose some fat even while eating pretty much what I want to, as long as it's animal based! In terms of feeling like I'm on a Diet, this is as good as it gets and I feel is a very sustainable and flexible eating program to be on longer term.

Studio Sashiko Microblading Review with @Chaybrows

I made a visit back to Studio Sashiko but this time it was for an appointment made for my wife Nicole. We where fortunate to be booked in with Chay Liddell @chaybrows for my wife's eyebrow Microblading.

Microblading of the eyebrows is a process where the technician etches fine lines in your eyebrows while using pigment similar to a tattoo but more suitable for cosmetic purposes. The newly etched lines simulate real hairs and can be used to fill in or even create eyebrows that look ultra realistic. This is a perfect solution for women (and men) with faint or even non existent eyebrows as an alternative to having to draw or fill them in using standard cosmetics.

Eyebrow Microblading is not permanent but generally will last a good 1-2 years before a touchup is required. This is good since eyebrow shapes and trends tend to change over time from thin to full and back again.

Make sure to watch my YouTube video of a condensed but start to finish look at the process of Microblading Eyebrows with Chay Liddell @chaybrows at Studio Sashiko.

And for the guys if your looking to get your hairline back then checkout the amazing SMP work done by Chay's husband Shannon Liddell @theinkbarber

Health and Fitness Realistic Expectations

In this YouTube video I talk about some of the expectations people have when starting their health and fitness journey, sometimes for the first time or often times as a repeat attempt at getting in better shape and health.

I have found the most typical expectations are people that think because they start going to the gym a few times per week and eating better than before, that positive changes are going to happen right away. When these perceived changes don't happen so quickly, the expectation is met with disappointment or even a feeling of failure which can cause a person to give up entirely.

On the other extreme, some people have the expatiation that if they dive head first and go all out 110% into their health and fitness program. Working out several hours each day, six days per week while restricting their diet severely. For sure this type of person will see dramatic changes very quickly but in many cases they can not sustain this expectation of a workload with limited food energy. It simply becomes too hard to maintain this effort and burnout will happen eventually leading to that person failing usually because they either get injured or lose interest.

You need to find a level of Health and Fitness that is sustainable and works within your lifestyle, that goes for exercise and eating. You need to have a life and be able to still accomplish your other commitments while having a little bit of down time for yourself once in a while. Yes it may take longer to get to your Health and Fitness gaol but this type of Expectation is sustainable and needs to be a lifestyle change that you continue on even after you have achieved your health and fitness goals. You don't just get their and stop. Health and Fitness is constant and must be maintained indefinitely.

New Italian Addition to the Man Cave Sea Can

Here on my fitness channel you don't often get the chance to see my full office, usually just me sitting in front of my desk talking away. My office is actually a 40 foot Sea Can Shipping Container I made into an office slash indoor airgun shooting range which is for my other airgun channel "Replica Airguns".

So I thought I would make a video and show you around a bit and also feature a new addition that has some Italian flare...
