One Hundred Pushups

In my ongoing pursuit of self-improvement, I stumbled upon a website, onehundredpushups. The concept is that by following the simple program laid out on the site, after six weeks you should be able to do 100 uninterrupted push ups. Since I have been trying to do push ups in the morning when I wake up, anyways, I figured that this would be a fun way to motivate me to actually continue doing it every morning.

Today, I did the initial test, which is to do as many push ups as you can. I got to 31. I think I might have been able to get a couple more if I pushed myself, but I would like to start the program Monday morning and didn't want to deplete my energy reserves too much. At any rate, it puts me at Level 4.

Monday morning, I am going to begin Week 1. I'll report my progress later.

Found your blog via 100 Pushups, seems we have a few things in common, doing the challenge, both called Andrew (assuming Andy is short for Andrew) and I bite my nails too. Good luck with both challenges (I might have to follow your nail-biting challenge to get some tips).

Good luck to you, too. The nail-biting becomes easier the longer you focus on it. I'll post a follow-up on that in a couple days.
