If you're set on training yourself you're limited on what you can do. Above all else you'll need a sparring partner of some kind. Hitting a heavy bag, or shadowboxing can only get you so far on your own.

I started on my own doing straight up boxing and didn't learn nearly as much as I did after only a couple months of formal martial arts training so I would stress that getting into a gym should be at least seriously considered.
