I don't blog here much, but when I do, it's because I don't have any other forum to say it in.
I recently learned the delights of boxing. I don't want to hit anybody, but I got a heavy bag because I heard it gives a total body workout. I spent 3 days with it and had that good hurt from day one. I'm cancelling my gym membership (contract is up, I'm unemployed and shouldn't be paying for something I don't use, and I'm just burnt out on them in general). I created a new workout for myself last week, and starting it today.
M-W-F Bike to & from work (0.83miles each way), plus 3 3-min rounds with the heavy bag each afternoon/evening (warm-up of 1 min jumping rope).
T-Th walk/jog for 30 mins before work, plus 3 3-min rounds with the heavy bag each afternoon/evening (warm-up of 1 min jumping rope).
Sat & Sun walk/jog for 30 mins before breakfast, plus 3 3-min rounds sometime in the afternoon - whenever I need a break from homework (with the jump rope warm-up).
It's not a strenuous schedule, by any means, but if the workout I got in those 3 days is any indication, my quads, abs, back (upper & lower) and biceps will be in perfect condition in no time.
As for diet, I'm doing the Dukan. It works for me, and I like it, so there. :)
I'm starting this plan at 251 lbs. I took my measurements last week, but they're in my ipod, not on here. I will be doing weekly weigh-ins, and monthly measurements.
