Boxing has to be the best workout around.

I have been boxing for around 3 years now, and it is my favorite workout.  Being in a room with no air conditioning in Florida, during the month of July, you can imagine what a workout it is.

I remember last summer being damp after boxing, but I really must have come on a lot, because the sweat was pouring off of me.

Yes, I do push myself, as well as my trainer Ryan, who gives me more to do each week.

A cute thing to tell you.  We bought a new car a couple of weeks ago, and my trainer was walking back from the parking lot.  He said I love the name of your car, so appropriate.  I thought for a minute, and it’s the FIT, from Honda.

This fit 70 year old babe, matches up to the car.

I was ready for another bottle of Majestic Pure Cellulite Cream.

I am nearing the end of my Majestic Pure Anti Cellulite Cream, 87% Organic, Tight Muscles & Joint and Muscle Pain, Natural Cellulite Treatment – Soothes, Relaxes, and Tightens Skin, so was pleased to receive another bottle.

This is a 9 oz. pump style bottle, of a great product that relieves pain for me.  I am into fitness, and get pain in my right knee, and my left shoulder.  I use the Hot Cream every day, and rub it into both areas before boxing, lifting, or flipping tires.  The heat really works, and I don’t feel any pain during my workout.

I have put it on the tops of my legs as a cellulite cream, but really don’t have that much, so personally haven’t seen a big difference.

This is a product that I can highly recommend.  It does have a medicinal smell, but doesn’t last long, and I really don’t worry as staying fit is my goal.

I did receive this product for free, but am always happy to pay full price for it.  I am a firm believer that this works for me.


So proud of myself.

My husband had to be at our local F.O.E. club this morning, so I dropped him off around 8.50 a.m.  I got to the gym at 9.00, and as I wanted to watch the end of the Liverpool and Stoke City football match, I went on the treadmill for half an hour.  Haven’t done that in months.

I then went on the machines, and worked on my shoulders for about 20 minutes.  Came over the ball, and did sit ups.  It was time for the Zumba class, so completed that.

Came out, and met up with my new boxing trainee.  I spent around 30 minutes, showing her how to wrap, and then 3 basic moves.  Came out to meet up with my other lady that I work with.  We arranged for the 3 of us to work together on Wednesday, and it was time for me to leave.  I had been there 2 and three quarter hours.

I took the photo of myself, as I am so pleased with the way I look.  Recently I have had ladies telling me how buff I look, that I have an incredible shape for a 70 year old, and that I look younger than I did several years ago.

If you don’t workout, these are many reasons why, you may wish to do so.

Blitzu Power + Compression Knee Brace for Joint Pain, Meniscus Tear, ACL, MCL and Arthritis Relief, Improve Circulation Support for Running, Gym Workout, Recovery Best Sleeves Patella Stabilizer Pad

I will not take pain medication for my right knee, even though I can’t twist it anymore, so always use a knee brace.  I like thinner ones, so was happy to receive the Blitzu Power + Compression Knee Brace.  

It is for meniscus tear, ACL, MCL relief, and much more.  I have had a tea in the meniscus, and need to protect it.  These knee braces/sleeves are much thinner that many I have.  I really like that as I not only wear them at the gym, and don’t care what they look like, but also under trousers when I go dancing.

These fit nice and tight, and all you feel is a firmness, protecting the knee.  They stay in place, as they have a grip on the inside, near the top.  I like the black, with the gray logo, and side stripes

The price is certainly right, at $9.99 for the pair.  Many come in single packaging.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

The Blitzu® POWER + superior grade circular knit structure delivers 360 degree stretch for greater flexibility, unsurpassed power and durability ‘

I did receive mine at a discounted price, but feel that they are worth the Amazon Prime price.


Zen Spirit Maca Powder Organic Peruvian Premium Grade Superfood (Raw)- USDA & Vegan Certified – 226.7g (8oz) – Perfect for Breakfast, Smoothies, Baking & Ice Cream.

If you have read my blog for awhile, you will know that I workout all the time, and take many supplements.  That’s why I wanted to test the Zen Spirit Maca Powder Organic Peruvian Premium Grade Superfood.  It is raw, USDA and Vegan certified.  It comes in an 8 ounce resealable package to keep it air tight.

I have tasted this Maca powder on it’s own, and it was okay.  I wouldn’t take it that way, but not really horrible, like some products.  I have been taking it in my daily protein shake, and it doesn’t taste any different.  I stopped taking my Spirulina, and replaced it with this.

I haven’t really noticed any difference yet, but it’s still early days.  This is from the Amazon webpage:

I did receive this product at a discounted price, and have been truthful in my review.

Today I had an hour of Zumba, and then another 45 of circuit training, and lifting weights. That is why I wore my HBUDS H1 SE Wireless Sports Earbuds.  Being waterproof I wasn’t worried about how much sweat I created.

You can see in my video how to set them up.  It is so simple, just charge them up through the USB cable. switch them on, and have your phone on Bluetooth.  Your phone will scan and pair them up.

The earbuds have a circular button, which switches them on/off, and 2 small buttons on the top of the right earbud.  These do all the functions that you need.  The neckband is flat, and stays that way so no tangling up.

Here is some specifications, and technical information for you:

KUBEER Yoga Pants Yoga Capris Leggings Workout Running Sports Tummy Control Shapewear Black

I am wearing my KUBEER Yoga Pants/Leggings right now.  I wore them to my hour Zumba class today, and I did stretching beforehand.  Shortly I will be going for my boxing session, with my trainer Ryan at Load More Plate, and I know that they will be really comfortable.

They are fairly thick, which I love, but have a nice lot of stretch in them.  They are really well made, and not at all tight at the waist.  I hate it when you get ones that cut in.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

Stand, sit, twist and stretch, 360°are free for your any positions and they won’t ride up, fall down, or dig in. Kubeer is a lifestyle brand that combines style, comfort, fit, and performance. From yoga, to shapewear or barre or spin class, Kubeer yoga pants are perfect for everything even a must have for your wardrobe.’

I didn’t sweat at all in them, and there was no chaffing, so I am extremely pleased with them.  They come in 6 sizes from x small to xx large.

I think the price of only $12.99 is exceptional, and although I got mine for free, I would happily pay full price for them.

Check out this video of my trainer and myself.  He had a new toy, and I got to do my boxing on it.  Yes, I am crazy.

SunJolly Yoga Stretch Strap with loops physical therapy Multi-Grip Pilates Stretching Belt -Workout Instruction Included

I go away quite a bit, and always like to workout, without taking too much equipment with me.  That is why the SunJolly Yoga Stretch Strap with loops will be very useful.

I can use it for stretching, and Yoga.  It is a sturdy strap, has ‘Ten integrated loops are large enough to accommodate most athletic shoes for ultimate convenience. Loops also provide comfortable handholds the entire length of the strap for stretching to your personal max.’

I took it to the gym with me, but wasn’t able to take photos with no hands free, so have just taken a few to show you the strap.

It does have a small instructional card, that shows 14 exercises/stretches.  This is certainly great for people starting out.  It will show you how to use it, and then progress to a class.  It can also be wrapped about a sturdy pole/tree, if you are outside, and allow you to do many different kind of exercises.

It is blue and black.

I did receive mine at a discounted price, and wanted to write a review about it.


FluxActive Women Silicone Wedding Ring Band (Black, Purple, Pink and Teal) (4-Pack)

I go to the gym every day, and workout boxing, with weights, dumbbells, kettle bell, etc.  I have misshapen wedding ring, eternity ring, and engagement ring, with metal on metal.  Therefore I have been wearing a silicone wedding ring for a couple of years now.

I wanted the FluxActive Women Silicone Wedding Ring Bands, because I slip them into a pocket, or a pocket of my waist-bag, and forget to zip it up.  Hence losing some.  I have bought several single ones, so really wanted the 4 pack.

I love that they come in Midnight Black, Purple Plum, Coral Pink, and Tiffany Teal.  Such pretty colors, and no chance of anyone taking me for being single.

The size 5 fits my wedding finger perfectly.  I can mix, and match them with my workout clothes.  How neat is that.

I often forget to wear my rings after working out, and people comment on the silicone ring,


when I am in a supermarket, or walking a nature trail.

I did receive mine at a discounted price, but would be happy to pay $10.97 for 4.  You can almost pay that much for one.
