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.

You Can't Cheat Reality

My friend Martin and his family came to visit me last year.  Martin gets up every morning and goes for a run.  Consequently, he has the body of a guy who gets up every morning and goes on a run.  See how that works?  It takes nothing short of a lot of hard work and exercise to look like someone who works hard and exercises.  I hate both working hard and exercising, but do it anyway.  I want to look like a guy who knocks out a hundred pushups and sit ups a day.  You know, those guys like Clint Eastwood and Gene Hackman, who at age seventy two could still kick your ass.  But I was never a Marine, nor inclined to be that self-disciplined, so this is hard for me.  I am however quite tenacious, so I am slowly upping my increments - I'm up to a solid fifty push ups and sit ups each and every day, so hoping I actually look pretty good by age 72.
