Weekly Progress Report – April 10-16

I decided to strip out most of the areas in my weekly report because they are more about WordPress, Development, and support.  If you are interested in those topics, I’ll probably be adding them to WP Adventure in the next week or two.  I almost quit the weekly report altogether, but decided I wanted to keep it specifically for the physical training section.


PHYSICAL TRAINING.

I’m finally starting to feel better and am behind on my workout.  I don’t want to do those sit-ups and push-ups which makes it so easy to come up with reasons not to do them.  I’m starting with a goal of 125 each per week because it’s low enough so I can get going with them but not enough it should start helping me.  This week it really begins.  From now until our navy fitness test in October, I’m going to keep a running total of what I should be at versus  what I’ve actually accomplished.  I am holding myself to doing that total by the end of October.

  • Monday:  30 push-ups, 30 curl-ups
  • Wednesday:  25 push-ups, 30 push-ups, 4.25 mile run
  • Thursday:  35 push-ups, 30 push-ups
  • Saturday:  25 push-ups, 30 push-ups, 7.52 mile run

Cumulative Totals

Goal:

  • Running:  10 miles
  • Curl-Ups:  125
  • Push-Ups: 125

Actual (Difference from Goal)

  • Running:  11.77 miles (+11.77)
  • Curl-Ups:  120 (-5)
  • Push-Ups:  115 (-10)

Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers by Tim Ferris.

Biggest takeaway this week:

Tim Ferriss asked Jason Nemer what he would put on a billboard.  He responded,

Play!  Play more.  I feel like people are so serious, and it doesn’t take much for people to drop back into the wisdom of a childlike playfulness.  If I had to prescribe two things to improve health and happiness in the world, it’d be movement and play.  Because you can’t really play without moving, so they’re intertwined.

I couldn’t agree with this more.  Play is a very important part of staying happy and young.  My wife regularly tells people she has three kids – to include me.  I don’t plan to ever grow up.
