Injury recovery and exercise in April

Last year, I sustained a few pretty serious injuries while working. Most involved my arms (mainly my left arm), but one impacted my back and torso generally (and left me with internal bleeding for an extended period).

Over the next week I’m seeing a variety of doctors and specialists for follow-up on each of these injuries, but aside from the injuries themselves needing to be addressed, one ongoing issue has been an inability to exercise, compounded by COVID-19 restrictions. (I ended up gaining nearly 40kg between September 2020 and January 2021, of which I’ve now lost about 25kg.)

I always like to take a data-based approach to these things, so I’ve crunched some numbers ahead of seeing all the doctors this week.

I’ve split the rest of this post into multiple pages, covering different aspects.
