I read somewhere that Americans have become unhealthier statistically because of the recession. WTF??

You don't need money to exercise! I'm going to try and show that you can get in to shape without spending money - use your environment creatively and you can succeed in attaining better health. My dad is a retired coach and P.E. teacher, and much to his chagrin I've been a lazy ass my whole life. Maybe I can finally put his knowledge to good use, as well as shape up and make him proud!

If you have a creative idea to share be sure to let me know ! I'll post the best photos/videos/links here.

How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time....
I was watching some big red ants in my yard as they all methodically delivered one big grain of sand from wherever they were digging underground out past the edge of their entrance.  Just an endless stream coming and going, and with each trip, one more grain of sand per ant was removed from the tunnel.  That's how life is - sometimes you can't even perceive any progress, as it is so tiny and incremental.  But you are making a difference, and one day you will actually be able to see the difference.  I've been hammering away at my body every day - just a few sit-ups and push-ups - but every night.  Started at twenty a day, and have slowly crept up to sixty a day.  Its a living hell, if you don't like to do calisthenics (like me), but like those ants one day I will be able to see progress.  Right now its so slight its not really looking like much.  But if I keep it up - every day without fail - I'll eventually be able to see the difference.  And that's why I hate exercise;  I want it NOW, daddy!
