48 minute walk outside at lunch today using mapmyfitness app on my iPhone. It says I walked 3.18 miles, but it isn't consistent as the same route has been measured by the same app at 2.50 miles.

Five hundred in one day; it takes less than an hour, I do it in front of the TV so I won't get bored.

A reminder to everyone: be very careful so you don't damage a muscle! It could stay damaged forever.)
I used to put my feet on the couch to make the pushups more difficult, but I stopped doing that two months ago. It doesn't make the pushups that much more difficult. And keeping my feet on the ground makes me tense my body much more to keep straight while doing the pushups, which is better. It should work on all those little muscles that help keep you upright, right?
One big motivator is that I used to have a bad back, probably from sitting too much while working. That has completely disappeared, due to a lot of walking, and also pushups I imagine. Situps are a more recent addition, but it's never too late to start.
I got bored doing the same thing over and over though for more than two years, five hundred pushups every three days, so I cut down to four hundred this spring to get it over with faster. Before that, I found that I was skipping too many times. But now I have instead increased the pushups to six hundred the last few times. And that makes me more enthusiastic. Going from four hundred to six hundred is a fifty percent increase, perhaps it will show after a while. (Five weeks?) Variation is always good.
