100 push ups

For some reason, I have decided to start doing the 100 push ups challenge. Yeah, me… Mr. “Exercise Blows.”  Me… exercising.  Who’d-a-thunk it?

Q.  Why am I doing this?

A.  How the hell should I know?  Why did I start doing yoga?  Why have I been eating better, exercising, and starting to face heretofore crippling fears?  I guess I just want to change who I am. I want to inculcate myself with a new self-image and more discipline.  I want to strengthen my core, shape my abs, lose weight, fix my shoulder problems, and start packing some sexy guns.

I want to be hot for a change.

I grew up scrawny and weak.  I barely weighed 140 lbs when I entered basic training at the age of 17.  At my peak weight, I cracked the scales at 250+ lbs.  Now, after altering my diet and increasing my activity level, I’ve managed to work my way back down to 225 lbs.  I’m still not where I want to be, but I’m on a path.

Q.  Why would I post something like this where the public-at-large can see it?

A.  Because I want you to hold me accountable.

Here’s how it works.  Today, I did their assessment test.  My total number of “good form” push ups was 20.  Since I’m under 40, this puts me nicely in the middle of rank 3 and establishes which training program I fit into.  In the coming weeks, I’ll post my results.  Once I reach 100 push ups, I’ll let you know.
