Hello internet. I know that I have not updated my progress in a long time. School is taking up a lot of my time but I can assure you that I'm still doing great. I got some 5-pound dumbells a while back and found some new exercises that work all different kinds of muscles. I've even upped the anti a little bit with how much weight I'm dealing with. I've discovered afterburn exercises and love the concept. They help your body to continue to burn calories even after you've stopped exercising and the exercises are great for strengthening your cardio. It's the secret weapon for weight loss. Even though I don't really need to lose weight (except for my famous food baby) but it helps your body get the fat out of the way that might be hiding muscle that you've been working hard to get. Six Pack Shortcuts is the youtube channel that has a lot of great stuff. Well, that's all I can say for now. I still have a lot of chores and homework to do. I really hope I can have a bit of a break tomorrow to fill you in on as much progress as I can tell you. Thanks for sticking with me.
At this point I have so many notes that I can't remember which of the older ones goes first so I'm just going to list them however.
This was probably from back in January when we were getting one snow storm after another (which kind of stretched into February a little too). So since I shoveled the back porch I felt like that counted as a sufficient amount of upper-body exercise and also a little bit of a cardio, cause I just kept going and concentrated on my breathing and I felt my heart going pretty good for a while. And they always warn people who have heart issues (like me) to not shovel the heavy snow, or not do too much shoveling in general, so that's why I knew it would be a good cardio endurance exercise.
These are the notes from your average couch-potato that is simply trying to fix it before it breaks!
