A bit of a false start for the first week, between the leg ulcer causing too much pain to sleep properly, and then the littlest ones vomiting through a couple of nights. So exercise, or rather the energy to do that exercise, has been lacking to say the least. Managed to get a few days in, and the weigh-in wasn’t overly disappointing, but it’s only the first week!
I’m starting to think that Week One should have started with January 1st, but hey-ho.
My quest to master the burpee has fallen along with it, although I’ve still tried it. I haven’t face planted anything yet, so that’s something, right? RIGHT? I can only walk it in, and even then my balance is precarious to say the least.
I had a couple of observers for some of the exercise I DID do, as you can see in the pictures.
Body Fat: 58.4%
Body Water: 33.7%
Bone Mass: 26.8%
Muscle Mass: 3.2kg
This is just what the scales at home measure, some of which I have no idea what or how that is relevant, but I do it anyway. Because you never know, right?
The burpee was invented in the 1930s by an American physiologist named Royal H Burpee (seriously) who developed the burpee test as a means to test fitness, agility, coordination, and strength. It was made more famous by the United States Armed Services during World War II.
Also known as a squat-thrust, it is sometimes confused with a sprawl.
