While I was getting all sentimental in my other blog post this morning I forgot to ask your advice about something.
Oh first – Herbalife shakes (all natural, one for breakfast, one for lunch, sensible supper)….are going great.
I freaking LOVE not having to plan my meals. 8oz milk and 2 scoops of powder – done and done.
They make me full and they keep me full. I don’t even feel the need to snack and have no urge to eat anything all day besides that. I eat a normal, healthy supper at night. I’ve decided nothing is off limits as long as the portion is okay.
That’s my plan. And it’s working. Two days in – down 4 pounds.
I feel great.
Now yes, I’m working out each day BUT I was doing that before and it would take a week to lose even 1 pound so I’m doing the happy dance.
I did another 75 minutes on the treadmill last night…over 600 calories burned. LOVE IT!
My question is this:
My legs are getting tight. They are getting muscular. They are getting strong. They are sore in a good way. When I walk I feel the difference in my legs. From the butt down – I “feel” what I’ve been doing.
That being said – waist up – nada! I run with weighted gloves on my hands but still….I’m doing NOTHING on the upper half.
And I’m annoyed. I’ve got to balance the two….if only to give my bottom half a much needed break.
I want to box. My question is do any of you have any good boxing DVDs you would recommend. Do any of you have punching bags – hanging or stand alone? Do you love it? Do you just punch for a certain amount of time? Do you just need a pair of gloves? Is boxing effective?
I have no access to boxing classes so that’s out for me.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
