    Changed the Cardio for weights, it took a lot longer to burn the same calories but did about 700 in an hour which wasn't too bad. Like feeling the burn the next day on the shoulders.

    Back and Stomach later I think!

    Hammered weights, went on proper scales and down 4lb and a couple of % body fat.

    Will have to mix weights up more I think.

    Weights are really effective for burning fat, especially if you do them in the morning.

    I used to do them in the morning every day but can't now :( was still doing weights but cardio too for about 40 minutes but did a solid hour of weights and can feel it.

    Going to order some ankle weights I think as well.

    Will do double sessions tomorrow, enjoy it in a sadistic way.

    I'm doing about 1.5 hours of weights and 30 mins cardio 4/5 times a week at the moment and trying to do 45-60mins cardio on the other two.

    I also find myself being a lot more conscious of what I'm eating after a morning workout. I tend to get up around 5am for the gym..my body has got used to it but people think I'm insane when I first tell them.

    Must admit, I tend to use the boots ones from a proper weigh too! ones at home aren't the best.

    Tempted to buy the fitbit ones as the £1's add up!

    See your GP. Mine was like that for ageas and the littlest thing would set if off. Perfectly fine for weeks until this morning, booked straight in for physio, she assessed me for 5 minutes before asking what I've been doing as I've somehow caused major damage with the muscles in my back. In so much pain at the moment.

    Keep getting mixed up with 10's and 20kg as the labels have worn off. Doing shrugs with 20s in place of the 10s has left me hurting this morning.

    you need go to a chiropractor get your spine checked, my 2 lower discs the fluid or gel what ever you call it is worn down and i need to get spinal decompression done, if you ever have long back pain ect best to buy a inversion table im buying one when i get my new apartment helps majorly with your spine. if i get the decompression done ill be out for 4 weeks cant do anything so waiting off till end summer get it done costs me $1200 for 12 sessions.
