As my Nerd Lunch buddies may recall, there was a time not long ago when I worked out six days a week and watched my diet pretty closely. Then I became a dad a couple of years back and got busy and got lazy. But I'm working on that.
And that's why I started the Hundred Pushup Challenge last week. This is a six-week program designed to take me from my current max of 30 all the way up to the magic number of 100.
I'm trying to work in some additional exercise --- pullups, cardio, maybe some lower body lifts --- but if all else fails, I'm still doing those pushups three mornings a week.
When I'm done, I'm going to use my giant pectoral muscles to fight crime and to help kids stay in school.
