The “B” Word…

Whatever happened to Bimbos?

Vicky watches, to my immense chagrin, Real Housewives of Orange County. Back when I was a kid, people like that would be called Bimbos. Now, they’re admired nationwide for their… what? They’re fucking Bimbos!

Someone recently said that America has lost all of its capacity for shame. After Shrub, the Repugs in general, and things like this, I have to say I believe them.

Mind you, I’m a voice in the darkness here. The show’s a hit and considered a franchise. Bimbos everywhere have become validated, mainstream… today’s “ladies”.

But I call them Bimbos.

(Yes, push-up news is off this week. I blew it. But I'll be back next week with more pain...)

Push Ups… Week Four…

Whoever said this was easy is completely full of shi…

Oh wait…

Okay, it’s officially not easy. It’s officially hard!

… the pushups…

I finished Week Four with a nightly high of 144 pushups, maxing at 40 in a row in one set. That was in the middle of the week and it was so hard I nearly fell to the floor. I decided at that point to give myself a little break and moved from the toughest tier to the middle tier. Thinks only get tougher from here, though, and a single “week” might start taking more than a week to complete. I’ll keep you posted.

Catch you after Week Five!

Push Ups… Week Three…

FYI: This stopped being even remotely EASY! This week, I hit the wall of pain, where my body looked at my will and said, “The fuck?”…

I finished Week Three with a nightly high of 122 pushups, maxing at 30 in a row in one set. Still not 100 in a row? You bet, but hey it’s just the third week, right? And next week is even more brutal. I’m beginning to think that one “week” may take more than one week to accomplish. I’ll keep you posted.

Catch you after Week Four!

Push Ups… Week Two…

Before I say anything I’ll live to regret, like “This hasn’t been too bad” or, worse still, “This has been EASY!”… let me just say, all in all, it’s been a piece of cake.

Honestly. I think I’m getting used to it… a bit…I finished Week Two with a nightly high of 86 pushups, maxing at 25 in a row in one set. Not much? You bet, but hey it’s just the second week, right? I may not hit 100 pushups all at once next week but 100 in one night is coming!

Catch you after Week Three!

Push Ups… Week One…

Even though I lost my job, that doesn’t relieve me of my pushups, however nice relief might be.

But actually, it hasn’t been that bad. I finished Week One with a nightly high of 63 pushups, 20 in a row. Not much? You bet, but hey it’s the first week, right? The whole idea is not to go crazy but to build… I’m building

Catch you after Week Two.
