Happy Superbowl Sunday tomorrow, traditionally a day for drinking beer and eating comfort food.
Speaking of football food, before I exercise I think exercising will give me an excuse to eat sugary or other unhealthy food that might still taste pleasurable, but I find the opposite happens. Those foods become less appetizing.
I think a burpee takes about four seconds to do. By my calculations, 50,000 burpees comes out to about two and a third days. From one perspective that seems like a lot, but over more than three years, it doesn’t seem that much. Marathon training, with its four-hour runs, adds up to a lot more and hasn’t improved my life as much.
I’m five percent of the way to one million burpees. At this rate I won’t make that target, but I expect at least to make it into the six-digits.
