As a whacky off the wall thing, considering your talents, have you considered street art?
Maybe even doing indoor arty stuff you could sell in local art shops for money. They take them in, get a percentage on sales and give you the rest.
Even if you only got about $20 a time for an A4 sized pastel, would that be worth exploring?

Nothing lame about that workout! I'd say you kicked butt!
Boss Man wrote:I never specifically prescribe Crunches, though I don't outright discourage them, as my usual one for Abs is Planks. I've never suggested Bicycle Crunches I don't think, in all my time here which is nearly 4 years, though when asked about their suitability on rare occasions I've okayed them.
Boss Man wrote:Also I wouldn't prescribe Lunges, Hamstring Curls and Squats together for Legs, because it's too much Hamstring stuff. You're doing 2 Hamstring exercises versus one Quad one.
Doing that could cause Hamstring dominance, and affect your posture and walking patterns, with possible pain and stiffness involved too, as assuming you classed the Hamstrings as the Agonists, then the Quads, (Antagonists), that reverse the motion of the Agonists, would struggle a bit to counteract a stronger set of muscles.
The weight levels you're using, wouldn't cause this problem really, but you would just use up more muscle Glycogen in the Hamstrings, possibly increasing fatigue, Lactic Acid production and a more prolonged recovery period for energy stores in the Hamstrings.
You're not very likely to get DOMS, (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), because you're not lifting enough weight or doing enough sets.
So that workout isn't familiar to me, because it includes certain options I wouldn't suggest, but might agree with if asked, depending on what they were.

Add Legs in here.
Dumbell Squats, (2 sets of 12 at 25lbs per DB)
Lunges, (2 sets of 12 at 25lbs per DB) if that feels awkward or difficult.
Hamstring Curls, (2 sets of 12 at 50lbs per DB)

-- Chest Press: 2 sets of 12 at 20 lbs
Cable Rows instead of Pulldowns, (2 sets of 12 at 50lbs)
E-Z Bar Curls, (1 set of 12 at 40lbs)
You're doing some Bicep and Tricep work with the Press and Row movements, so I kept the direct Tricep stuff out and added a little direct Bicep work.
-- Shoulder Press: 2 sets of 12 at 20 lbs
-- Treadmill: 25 minutes @ 3 mph
This should work a bit better for you hopefully.
Boss Man wrote:Great to see you keeping at the training though. I am sure this is something you lament about the last school year, that perhaps you couldn't find a way to slot it into some of your daily schedule(s), or that you could have but didn't maybe?
Boss Man wrote: Keep pushing though, because it is great to see you finding a way to get the exercise and a solid diet integrated with your sleep and studies, because you were concerned about managing to do that a few days ago and I'm very proud of you for finding a way to do that, so you don't jeopardise the physical results, you've worked pretty hard for the past several weeks.
Boss Man wrote:GOOD LUCK with your studies and don't stop believing in yourself. You are intelligent and talented and you CAN go far in life and I am starting to see things about you and your future, that a few months ago were unclear somewhat, but now I find more clairty on your forward momentum and attutide to certain things and I want you to be proud of how you have changed and adapted as a person, because you ARE more consistent now with your approach to the weight loss and you do seem a more emotionally smooth person now, less fluctuating and erratic.
I think you now have more reasons to believe in your future, yourself and what is possible and it seems as if you are seeing those reasons and are becoming more of an extroverted thinker, as opposed to applying negativity to many things.
