Fitness Level-Up Day

Last month I didn't even know what a "burpee" was [1]. Today I did ten.

This may not sound like much.

For those who don't know what burpees are, they are a full-body move which I suspect were given a ridiculous name so you wouldn't know until too late how evil they were.

In short, you do a squat, jump from the squat into a plank, jump from the plank back into a squat, and then jump up to standing position. This is a move that the most hardcore Crossfit Geeks write whole blogs about how much they hate it.

I was given 60 seconds to do as many as I could, and I managed ten, never having done any before. I'm considering that an achievement unlocked. :) I'm doubly-pleased because I was in a severe "Oh God I have NO motivation, can I please skip everything!" mood, but I shut up and did my workout anyway. That's not easy, sometimes.

Also, spoiler alert: assuming my weight doesn't go up overnight (which I can't imagine it doing), tomorrow's weigh-in will be my best yet.

So! Fitness level-up. :)

Doing this stuff even though you lack motivation is a good sign.
