I want to point out that one of my blogger colleagues has just released a new book called “Free at 45“.

Written by Tim Stobbs at Canadian Dream , the book shows how you can retire at 45, or at least a lot sooner than you might think.

I haven’t read it myself, but I’m sure it’s worth a read.

Pushups

I’m continuing the pushup challenge and things are finally improving – I felt a lot better during the last two workouts. I’ve finished week two and now I have to do an exhaustion test before continuing with week three.

Thanks for mention. Yes, pushups are a challenge. It’s ping pong for me for now.

I for got about the Hundred Pushup Challenge. I tried it a couple of years ago and got pretty far but didn’t make it to 100. The program did seem to work though. Good luck!
