    Keep counting. I've always wondered how many pushups I've done over my decade+ in the Army. I never started keeping track until the other day, after reading Berkhan's article on fuckarounitis.

    I got checked out at the gym today. I was moving slowly on the eliptical machine keeping my heart rate right at about 75%. I was looking in the mirror in the front of the room and saw the chick next to me look over, then scan down and back up all slow.

    It made me feel good cause just a few months ago I was one of the fat bloated guys, sweating my ass off going as fast as I could keeping my heart rate at 95% for an hour. Now I work out half as hard and I've lost 20 lbs in 2 months.

    Great job everyone!

    I started the year at 154 and today I hit my lowest adult weight ever, 138! I feel great and I can also do 10+ real pushups, still working on the pullups.

    I don't know if you're in the market or not, but it's still a nice ego boost.

    I've gone a whole week without diet sodas and zero carb monsters, and I am not lethargic! YAY!

    I also did my first bodyweight exercises 2 days ago. I'm on Level 1-2, but I did them! I was so thankful for the modified versions, because what scared me the most when I first heard that pull-ups and stuff were recommended was the thought that I couldn't ever do them. In middle school, years ago, I could only do 1 pullup, and I was bone thin!

    THANK YOU MARK FOR GIVING ME ALTERNATIVES TO A SIT UP! I was pretty good at them, but I hated them!

    I did my first 3 sets of pushups (albeit 3 sets of 6)! Time to step it up a notch and go further.

    How about 5 sets of situps this week?

    Since I started playing rugby, I've never been truly fit. Went Primal 4.5 months ago, have lost 54lbs, and have been working out with strength and speed all summer. For the first time ever, I was the first of the Forwards to finish the workout we were doing and not the last.

    I just divested over 30 hangers of shirts and dresses that I'm never going to be big enough to wear again! They're headed off to the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store...which is where I'll probably shop for some more inexpensive 'transition' clothing.

    Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
    Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

    Today I slid down a three-story-high water slide, screaming like a little bitch all the way down. No way would I have done that 80 pounds ago and/or with the horrible Iron Maiden still in my back. Two years ago, I remember looking wistfully at that slide, and today I finally did it. I had the biggest smile in the pool. The joy of movement and being released from prison, FTW.
