|I got the pink pair when I tired out the kickboxing class.|
Once I figured out where to put it, it took me almost a month to get the motivation to fill it up. When I did, I was in love! I searched the Internet for all sorts if information about boxing/MMA/kickboxing. I already had gloves and hand-wraps. When I was ready to start hitting the bag, it took me almost a half hour to wrap my hands, but it was worth it. I watched a few boxing videos to get my stance down and the punches.
I still wanted more, so off to Groupon I went. They always have great kickboxing choices. Of course I procrastinated and my guy ended getting me one. Super excited for my first kickboxing class!
It was an hour of non-stop movement and in the end I thought it was great. I went back again the next week even though the instructor suggested three times a week (of course). Their schedule, mine and the little snow storm made things a little harder to do three times a week. Plus I had a bag at home!
In between my classes I do Blogilates (Pilates), calisthenics, and I work with my bag. However, I do miss Crossfit, but I find it challenging to do without a little help. I got to (wo)man up though.
I love the results Crossfit has given me but boy oh boy do I love kickboxing. I'm not on the strictest workout schedule but I now aim for three times a week 30 minutes to an hour. I used to do more but things change.
Also I have stayed away from fried food. Once a week I can eat something fried, but I don't miss it. I ate clean for about a week in January but I didn't like how I prepped my meals. They tasted so bland. So no more meal prepping for now.
Water. My water intake has not increased to where I want it. I can't even tell others to drink water because I slack in that area. Water is really the only beverage I have in the house. I either drink green tea and ginger infused water, hot chocolate, hot tea or just water water. As a matter of fact I'm going to go make some green tea and ginger infused water now. OH and smoothies, I know it's been cold out but I finally added spinach to my smoothies. Loves it!
Peace and Love
