Happy Leap Day!
February is over which means it's time for another update on The Count, in which I pledged to begin some new habits in the new year. On to the update!
The Snooze: I'm still struggling with setting a regular time to turn in every evening, which does affect the Snooze count a little bit. I managed to only hit the snooze button twice this month though, which improves my year to date success rate to almost 92%. In March I'm going to try and work on my bed time so I'm not as tempted to hit that snooze in the morning.
Pushups: I've done incredibly well with my pushup regimen this month, increasing my daily count from from one set of 25 to two sets totaling 40 pushups (25/15), for over a thousand pushups this month and a year to date total of 1525. I've also continued with the squats and now it's time to shake things up a little more.
I'm starting to feel a little burned out with the pushups and it's been suggested by people I trust that I may need to give my shoulders a little "resting" time, especially after 60 straight days of pushups. So here's what I'm going to try. I'm going to throw crunches into the mix now, and I'm going to rotate between pushups, squats and crunches, doing two out of the three exercises every morning. That should give the muscles involved in each exercise a little break. I'll also rename the Pushups count to AM Exercise to reflect that. If it works, I'll continue with it, otherwise I'll try something else.

I'm still in "Major Deadline Mode" for at least the next 10 days or so; after that I should be back to posting and commenting on a more regular basis. Play nice until I get back!
The Count: Snooze = +50, Push-Ups = +60
