Well time for a ME ME ME post. I know, how cruel of me. As some of you know and most don’t, I’ve been doing weight watchers now since January 28. I’ve lost a total of 15 lbs. I’m very close to my goal of being under 150 lbs but my progress has slowed in the past couple of weeks. I used to lose an average of 1.4 to 3 lbs per week. Now I am down to 0.8 lbs per week. I need something to help me burn the remaining lbs I have left.


I think I found something to” push me” forward. The program is called the One Hundred Pushups Challenge. Sean Loyless (a friend on friendfeed) turned me onto the program. The premise is very simple and its something you can do without a gym membership. You start off with an initial test of how many pushups you can do until you collapse in a sweaty heap on the floor. This gauges your fitness level and determines how many sets and reps you will do for your first week. I did my initial test today and was able to do 28 pushups. Yay me!  I won’t go through the whole program in this post but I will say that I will be starting this program next week and keep you guys updated on my progress. The cool thing is there are a number of ways to track your progress. The site has a iphone app or you can track your progress on the 100pushups site. Leave me a comment if you’ve had any experience with this program or you want to join me in this quest.

UPDATE: If you are on Friendfeed and want to participate with us, join the Hundred Pushups Group and share your progress with us.
