I have had the honor to teach basic boxing to around 18 ladies over the past year or so. This is the first time I have had someone left handed.
I wrapped her hands and wrists with my spare wraps, and had an extra pair of gloves for her. We went into the boxing room first, and I was able to get her warmed up, and then start to show her the stance, and the basic jab, jab, punch. I am glad that I did before the next lady arrived. I am 70, and she is older than me, and found it difficult to follow instructions. I have the most patience I know, and had to spend a long time with her.
My lady from my last class remembered well, and between showing the new lady, I was able to teach her 2 more moves. She really impresses me, and is very determined. My lady I have been working with for 4 months didn’t manage to come.
The gym I go to would pay me if I worked with 5 at a time, but there is no way that seniors can do this in a group setting. They need individual attention, and that is why I volunteer my time. I love that I can give back to the community.
We took selfie photos, but unfortunately I can’t compress them, to allow me to put photos in my blog posts, so it’s an old boxing one.
Do you volunteer your time, and if so what do you do?
I love pretty lingerie, and the Kitty-Kitty Mesh Negligee Set is beautiful. It is really feminine, soft, lacy, and so comfortable. It looks stunning on, and you will have to check the pictures on the Amazon site for that.
I took photos of it, and also a video showing you the product, with a detailed description. It has elastic under the boobs, which gives plenty of stretch. The rest of the negligee is open, which is great for sleeping. You don’t get it riding up, like some other ones do.
It is a 2 piece set, and comes with a g-string bottom.
The price for this sexy floral lace set is only $8.99 with Amazon Prime. I reckon this is a great gift for a bride, an anniversary, or Valentine’s day. I know it is something that I would be happy to receive from my husband. A gift for both of us.
I did receive mine at a discounted price, but would be happy to pay the full price for it.
The TNT Pro Series Waist Trimmer Ab Belt is a perfect product for boxing, lifting weights, flipping tires, etc.
It is extra wide, and wraps around you. There is Velcro on the belt, and it will close where ever you need it on the belt. The inside of the belt is a ‘ non-slip interior grid to prevent slipping, bunching, or moving of any kind. Now you can feel rest assured that your belt will remain in place.’
It also states on the website that ‘MORE SWEAT, LESS STINK: We designed the interior to repel sweat and moisture to prevent sweat and bacteria build up. ‘
It comes in sizes from extra small to extra large, so there is a belt for everyone.
It is nicely made, and does stay in place, when boxing. My clothes are soaked after a workout, and have to be washed, but the belt can just dry out.
I was lucky enough to get mine at a discounted price, and can never have too many. I use one, and then let is air dry in the garage, allowing me to use another one when needed.
I already have a pair of boxing mitts for myself. My husband has held them a couple of times, but as my punching is getting harder, I don’t like asking him to do it.
The ones at Load More Plate, where I have my training sessions, the Velcro was not sticking, so I bought these PAMASE Boxing Leather Punch Focus Mitts and gave them to my trainer. They are thicker, and a much better quality had the ones they had. It was for my own benefit, as this is where I get to find more stamina, and can go much longer, even though I drive myself to my limits.
If you are in the market for mitts, for boxing, or martial arts, I highly recommend these. I purchased these at a discounted price, and decided to write a review, because they are a quality product.
I bought a pair of legging, and Capris for the gym. They were both discounted, and I needed new ones.
The leggings are NonEcho High Waist Yoga Pants Fitness Leggings Stretchy Workout Tights Women Capris Activewear. They are black, and have the red heart on my bum, and diagonal striped below it. Everyone says ‘How skinny I am’, but this sexy red heart proves them wrong.
I wore them yesterday for Zumba Toning, lifting weights, and circuit training. They stayed totally in place, and I love the wide waistband. Every time I bent over in Zumba Toning, I was thinking of the views that others behind me, could see. Made me smile. Right now they are sale with Amazon Prime just $9.89.
The other pair from Zelotpower, that are black leggings, I am wearing today. I did Zumba in them, and boxing. They fit me well, and have plenty of stretch in them. Again a great price at $9.59.
I did get both at a slightly cheaper price than the prices above, but feell that they are both good quality, and exactly what I wanted.
I do Zumba 4 times a week, but every six months when my girlfriend has a meeting, I go to the Friday Zumba Toning class.
If you are not aware of this one, it is Zumba dancing with light weights. You do a couple of songs without the weights, then with them. Most of the ladies have the pretty 2 lb. weights, but as I do lifting, and boxing, I went with 4 lb. weights. They were certainly heavy enough for me, and I ended up with a great workout.
Followed that with some lifting, and then on the upside down Bosu to get a little more cardio in. I hate treadmills.
I have an android phone, but wanted the VTEK Lightning Charging Extension Cable for my girlfriend. She has an iPhone 6. and I knew that this would be useful to her.
It is really well made, and great that it will allow you to charge your phone, without having to stretch the cable, or worse still, lay your phone where it could get damaged.
I am adding some important information from the Amazon web page:
‘End size: Length 2.5*1.8*1 cm; Male End Size: 1*0.6 cm;
Extension cable for iPhone 5,5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPads Mini& iPods with 8 pin lightning connector. Please Use Verified or Original Charging Cable. Not verified cable does not support.
It works with synchronizing with the iTunes, but does not transfer data ,music, video from your cellphone to your car, also does not work with some dock stations and iPad air please kindly notice this.
It does not work with any VGA or HDMI cables, 30 pin to 8 pin adapters or any converters,and iPad Air, please do not use. Please kindly notice this.’
If you have the iPhone, and it is an older one listed above, then this could be of help to you.
I did receive this one for free, and know that my friend will be using it.
I so love a variety of dresses, and the THANTH Womens Short Sleeve Cold Shoulder Dress is another one that has been added to my collection.
This dress is perfect for the summer months, as it has cool, comfortable, and very feminine. The material is 95% Rayon, and 5% Spandex. This gives the little stretch in it. I have made a video telling you the colors, sizes, etc., of the dress, so check it out.
I think my favorite part of the dress is the crisscross design of the sleeves. This means that you can wear it for almost any occasion. I wear my dresses dancing, but it could be worn for day wear, dining, a summer evening walk, and numerous other times.
My husband took photos of me modeling this cute dress, so hope you enjoy them. For further information you can go to the Amazon website, at the link is below.
I did receive this dress for free, and feel that it is a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe.
My husband has been talking about the Chelsea game for a couple of days now, and was going to watch it on channel 150. When he clicked on it, it says that you have to pay for it. He went through all the channel and found another one up in the 1,000+ numbers, and again it wasn’t free.
I have the Spectrum app on my phone, and use the same name, and password for our account. I went to channel 150, and it loaded, and I am watching it now. How can that be? I am certainly not going to ask Spectrum. At least I can watch it on the phone, and am happy with that.
First off I have to say what a bargain I got, when I bought mine. The Amazon price was $49.99. It is now $70.00 for exactly the same one. I also saw it in a Target store for $147.00. I am v#chicery pleased that I bought it when I did.
I thoroughly read the instructions, and also went through the recipe book that also came with it.
It suggests that you do a 2 minute steam cook to check it out, and that way learn more about it. I did this, and started to feel a little more confident in using it. It’s been 30+ years since I used a pressure cooker in England.
The first time I used it, I wanted to make my chicken curry. The chicken was already cooked, so found a recipe in the book for fish curry, but you could do chicken as well. I followed the instructions, and when it was ready, I had put a little too much liquid it, and it could have had another 3 minutes. We ate some, and then I put it on again for 3 minutes, and the rest of the curry was great.
I tried pork chops next, and had 6 frozen ones that I thawed out. Before doing this one, I checked the book, and it said 40 minutes, so texted my girlfriend as her husband uses theirs. She told me to put everything in the pot, and pressure cook for 25 minutes. So glad that I contacted her, because the food was perfectly cooked. I had meat, vegetables, potatoes, and gravy.
I haven’t ventured too far yet, but have been asked in comments how I am doing with it. I will most likely do a follow up in a couple of weeks time.
