Yesterday I did 48 push ups (10 breaths) then 12 more (then 10 breaths) then 9 more…and the phone rang. So 69, a current record.

At the gym I did 200 bicycle crunches (3 sets) (new record) and also 10 pull ups (another record–up from 8) followed by 6½ chin ups. Some progress. And that is 7 visits to the gym this month. I am thinking and feeling that twice a week is not enough.

Still can’t figure out how to flex my abs. What is my problem?
