Spending a few weeks chopping wood did wonders for my physique.
I used to pay for a gym membership, as well as then use it a few times a year, however those nights are over! I went to the outdated family hunting cottage to “get back to nature” as well as spend some time hunting as well as fishing.
I did not anticipate the plunge in temps, nor the worst snowstorm in 30 years hitting the area, and after that I particularly had to “get back to nature” including chopping firewood, because the electricity as well as the natural gas furnace were both offline. The natural gas furnace absolutely doesn’t require electricity to run, which is what makes it so reliable. This is how bad the storm was, as well as how deep the snow was, that it took out both the power as well as the heater! Thankfully there was an outdated cement fireplace in the back of the kitchen. This cottage is multiple decades old, as well as for much of that time there was no electricity at all, this fireplace gave all the heating for the apartment as well as the kitchen. If you have never used a fireplace for survival, it turns out they are a lot more work-intensive than you think. I spent a couple of hours a day chopping firewood just to make sure the cement fireplace never went cold. This is how I lost so multiple pounds in such a short amount of time. The outdated cement fireplace was pretty amazing, as well as not only kept myself and others boiling however also gave enough heat to cook my food as well as boil my water.
