    Because of the snow here, I ended up leaving my car at work for the weekend, so I said I am going to clear my parking space from the 12" or snow that fell. My parking space is on a small hill, and I have to walk every shovelful up a hill to dump it.

    I was NEVER able to move even 3 shovelfuls of snow before without feeling like I was going to have a heart attack, and completely winded. I would just leave the car buried.

    Today I cleaned the entire space, which took about 2 hours of moving snow, carrying up a hill and dumping it out. Each shovelful was about 10lbs or so.

    I didn't even break a sweat and even ended up laughing at myself for getting it done.

    lol, sounds stupid, but it's literally the first time I felt like exercising paid off a little bit.

    Good job.

    Years back, I was a happy fellow when I realized the sweat was collecting at the bottom of my tee shirt instead on at the top of my stomach.

    Sadly, happier times.
