    I love planks, it's the only thing I excel at naturally.

    The other night I was imagining this sort of forum in which your ability to post was only unlocked after a set number of steps on a fitbit or similar device and then posting again within the same 24 hrs it was an increased step count and if you were banned you could access the forum again if you reached your BMI perfect and maintained that for a set number of weeks, stuff like that.

    Down 22.5 lbs. Had my first cheat day on Fri and went overboard and gained six lbs. Then fasted for 36 hrs and am now back to progressing forward.

    Cant go over board.

    I did 390 squats last week.

    I'll be back later with this week's update.

    I've reached a plateau doing 100 push-ups daily. Will be raising the bar to 140 to exceed 52 consecutive push-ups.

Well let me tell you... sit-ups are worthless compared to this. I gained stomach muscle tone within the first week (granted, I am one who puts on muscle relatively quickly/easily, but still), and it also tones pretty much every other muscle in my body. Highly recommend.
    I loathe situps. I haven't been doing this very often, but I did discover this good alternative, which I like because it doesn't hurt my neck...

    It's day 4 and I can already see I've made a huge mistake.
    I'll let you know if I make it through the final week which consists of almost 1,000 squats and nearly 20 minutes of planking.
    Wow! Wow.

    I can only force myself to consistently do workouts that I find fun. I've been doing more squats and lunges since I've been doing this workout (which is not the best quality and little corny, but a lot of fun for me.)
    Be e..x..c..e..l..l..e..n..t to each other.

    @Luminous - I think the "fun" part for me is the actual challenge itself. Basically, I just wanna accomplish something super hard just to say I did it.
    Plus, I wanna be thicc.

    I've been at 150 per day for a while. About to up that to 200. I'm upping my sets to 40 per. I haven't done pushups to failure.

    I just did 40 pushups in a row. That's the most consecutive pushups I've ever done!

    Just tried to do three sets of 40 back to back. Gassed at around 35 on the third set. Need more work.

    I'm switching to walking instead of squats. My legs are strong enough and the cardio is more valuable, and also less likely to aggravate a rather bad past injury to my left quad.

    Eating well but I've been in a shit mood and stressed for the last couple of days and haven't lost more weight, so I would imagine my cortisol levels have been keeping me from dropping lbs. Still eating well and waiting everything to stabilize so that I can keep shedding pounds.
