Doing some great Army training here. I have some sweet pics and video that I'll post when I get home. Unfortunately I only did 270 pushups today and it felt like a million. 60 in the AM and 60 before bed and then a few sets of 50 during the day. I really need to use some card games or ripdeck to get the numbers up there.

I suck at life

Mostly I just suck at doing a lot of pushups. I did 210 on Monday, 60 on Tuesday, and 110 on Wednesday. The days have been busier than expected and I've been lazier than expected. I have 110 done this morning but I need more than 400/day to get my 2k. Let's try to start with 400 for one day, shall we?

DC Weekend

Had a great weekend with the family. Knocked out 300 on Friday and 210 on Saturday but only managed 110 today. Should have been higher, just got lazy and now I'm too tired. I'm getting back to the point where each morning set is 60 and each set after that should be 60 soon. Those extra couple of pushups help a lot in the long run.

This week 8 of the pilots in my company are flying 2 Blackhawks down to Texas for some training. It should be fun and I should get a lot of pushups done. Making 2k my goal, really no reason not to get there.

70 straight

Today I knocked out 70 straight before breakfast and then didn't do any more for the rest of the day. 70 straight is better than I've been doing so I'm pleased with that. Tomorrow I will go for 250. I was going to say 500 but I'm going to take baby steps to getting more. My right shoulder is still taking to me and I don't want to go too nutso. I've been eating pretty healthy and running a bit and I can tell the difference in only 10 days. I'm taking progress selfies every Sunday and if the ladies are lucky, I'll post them all (I think there will be 4 pics total) when I'm done detoxing, right before Labor Day weekend.

Yesterday was awesome. An old friend was in Nashville for a bachelorette party and they were kind enough to let me party down with them. Pure insanity.

Only got 50 done today, right before bed. I'll do a lot this week, promise.

I've been pretty consistent since Wednesday and can feel myself getting into a flow. Thursday night I knocked out two sets of 50 at work and didn't get made fun of too badly. Friday morning I did my 50-40-30-20-10 pyramid and it kinda sucked but I made it without having to rest too much. Today I've done 210 and we're about to hit the bar so that'll probably be it. Here are the numbers but I won't have the sum since I'm blogging from my phone. Sum tomorrow. And maybe some day soon some bigger numbers.

I guess I'm doing alright

Had another drunk weekend but focused on getting at least 150 in per day and can't be too disappointed with the numbers I got. On Monday, I was at work from 2 PM until 4 AM and spent 7 hours in the air. It was really exhausting and I haven't been doing as hot during the week but once my schedule returns to normal and I combine it with my no-drinking clause, I should be fine. I've pumped out 100 this morning already and I'm going to start doing more at work. Once I get past the guys making fun of me, it'll be a great step toward doing more overall.

As the weekend creeps up, I find myself considering cheating and boozing it up but this 24-day detox cost some money and I think that'll be my saving grace; not wanting to waste money.

My God how time flies. Happy August 1st. I just finished a 24-hour staff duty shift and it sucked. I did 4 sets of 50 pushups and felt pretty good. My shoulder still hurts but I can definitely suck it up. I'd like to get back into the card games soon.

And yes, Dave, I wanted to add the 500 miles but my competition refused. But I'll definitely get there anyway. I just need to focus on pushups for a minute and get back on track. Even with these two horrible months, I'm happy that I'm ahead of pace and feel like the goal should still be easy to achieve.

Now goodnight. Hope I wake up before 2 PM.
