Do I have a 6-pack? Oh yeah I do…despite what the vet said recently. Last time I was in the office she made a comment that although I was 57 pounds (down one from the time before) that “54 would look good on me.” I of course looked at her indignantly and gave a very understandable grrr (but under my breath since she is the one with the all those needles and nail clippers). Reminds me of the time my dad went to buy a suit and the sales guy said he needed vents in his jacket given “this” – at which point he pointed to his rump (he also let out a low grrrr – or so he told me).
So, as a result of the vets comment my meals have been reduced in an effort to get me to meet this new weight goal (btw – dad never did was put on the same restrictions despite his need for venting in his jacket). So I took matters into my own paws. I know there are two ways to lose weight – both related to the whole calories in/calories out thing. So my plan was to up the calories out side of the equation and start lifting weights. I tried this before but since the bar bells were my mothers I was told I had to find another way.
Which is when I heard about the 6-pack work out plan and it just so happens I saw one of these when I was at my grandparents recently. Here is a short video illustrating the end of my work out:
You may be wondering why my grandparents had a six pack of beer sitting outside…especially with all those nasty beer-swilling skunks (and opossums) running around. Just so happens that it wasn’t outside but in the basement and it wasn’t a full 6-pack but one with only two bottles in it. Thus you could see why I was so frustrated that not only was my workout 4 short but that there was no bottle opener so I couldn’t even refresh with some hardy calories in!
Here is the full workout plan:
Unfortunately, the quality of that powerpoint slide that I had the scribe make may not be good enough after it was inserted into this blog for you to understand the workout so I will recap it for you in words.
- I walked downstairs to get the 6-pack
- I carried the 6-pack upstairs
- I took the 6-pack through the dog door outside
- I carried it across the deck and into the backyard.
- Bet you wish someone had captured the whole thing on video, eh? 😉
- My parents wondered where on earth I got the beer. My FarMor noted the basement so they pieced it together. TempiTrouble!
