100 Pushups & Lunges - Introduction

For the next 21 days, i will attempt to do 100 push ups and 100 walking lunges each day.

Quick background.  I moved back to Ohio from Asheville, NC in November.  I'm staying at my parents' house until the g/f and I move into a home that we've recently purchased. The fridge is constantly full of "less-than-healthy" food and drink choices.  Needless to say, I haven't been making the best decisions.  When faced with having to cook versus grabbing what's convenient, i'll choose the path of least resistance.  

In my own home, i'll simply not purchase the bad food and remove the temptation entirely.  That's not really a choice here and my body has paid the price.   

tl;dr I'm fat.

Despite undertaking the Mile Run challenge, i've still managed to put on upwards of 20 pounds.  I'm hoping that this challenge will kick-start some fat loss and get me ready for the Electric Run 5k in June.

Here are my measurements as of May 4th, 2014:

Weight - 198 lbs
Neck - 16"
L Arm - 12.25"
R Arm - 12.5"
Chest - 42"
Naval - 40"
Waist - 38"
L Thigh - 23"
R Thigh - 23.5"
L Calf - 15.25"
R Calf - 15"

And here are some unflattering pictures that most would be hesitant to post on the web:

My weight and fitness levels are a constant roller coaster ride.  I'm hoping that undertaking this challenge, in addition to moving into my own home, will allow everything to stabilize and make health a permanent habit in my life.

The challenge starts tomorrow, May 5th, 2014.
