Fitness: 21st July 2021 + A Did You Know Fitness Question
The day was good, with heavy showers all around us. The day being celebrated as Eid, it was a holiday for my daughter. My daughter thought that she could jog with me, but for the rains. No problem, next time. She likes jogs with me. Although, she prefers doing it on the weekends or holidays.
Anyway, coming to my fitness regime, I added another dimension to fitness. Yesterday, for the first time, I tried out a controlled intake of food. Just make note that this is not dieting or anything on similar lines. This is a bit different.
Throughout the day, I was mostly on fluids, some tea, and occasional bananas. At night, I had a proper dinner with carbs and proteins. I kept the fats to a minimum. The day went fine, and I could go through without hunger pangs or feeling famished. It was good. I liked it so much that I am already doing it today.
I will continue the regime for seven days. If I like it without being overtly out of line with my urge to eat, I will make it my lifestyle. Let’s see what shape it takes. 😊
That’s it from me for today. I will see you all tomorrow.
Did You Know?
Eva Clarke of Australia holds the record for most burpees in 24 hours. Wait, what? 24-hours? Yes, you heard me right—the record for 24-hours.
Eva completed 12,003 burpees in 24 hours at the Dubai Autodrome in 2015. As a result of the attempt, she also holds the record for the most burpees in an hour and 12-hours.
On a serious note, I haven’t done burpees beyond 5 minutes at a stretch. 1-hour, let alone, 24-hour is beyond comprehension, at least for now. Phew!
