Exercise Rambling 101

October flew by fast and I somehow managed to stay away from the trick-or-treat candy, not to mention the few pounds that I dropped. It seems that I can only lose a pound a week, which is fine with me as long as I can keep those pounds from bouncing back through the upcoming holiday season.

Because of the economy, and just like most Americans, I’m somewhat on a budget, but with most of my Christmas shopping done early, I was hoping to buy a little program called Billy Blanks PT 24/7. The program has been available since early this year through Billy Blanks’ website, but it went retail in October at around $75-$90. Not as expensive as P90x or Insanity, but it can be pricey during a recession. I recently joined Ebay and I have been keeping a close eye on PT 24/7. I made a few bids, but the price always went up and up! I’m glad that I set a spending limit, as I bought the PT 24/7 yesterday through an Ebay store seller for just under $55. Its schedule to ship probably tomorrow, since today was Veterans Day with no mail service. The seller has sent me a tracking number for it.

Last week I received the book The Tae Bo Way by Billy Blanks which I bought on Ebay. The book is in excellent condition. I’ve only had a few minutes to glance through it, but I’m planning on reading it soon, as long with a few other cookbooks/health books, and posting a review on here.

A few weeks before, I bought a pair of 1-pound Everlast gloves from an Ebay seller, a day before I found Tae Bo Power with a set of weighted gloves. A few days later, I noticed my local Walmart had in a $10 pair of weight gloves. I’ve been looking for a pair for months and just when I ordered it Walmart actually gets something in. I received the Everlast gloves a week later and I’m glad that I got them. They are much better than the cheap-made Tae Bo gloves. The only downside is that if you have bigger hands than me, then you probably can’t wear them. They fit me just fine, but for others you might want to look for a different pair. I do recommend using weight gloves during Tae Bo or any other kicking boxing workout.
