now

Every. Day.

Since August 26, 2016: I have been doing at least 25 push-ups. Every. Single. Day. (I post all of my push-up challenge videos on YoutTube.) Since August 29, 2017, I started doing 30 push-ups on video and 20 more off camera for a total of 50.

Since December 2014: I have been practicing a foreign language using Duolingo. Every. Single. Day. (Yes, I understand I may not gain fluency just by using Duolingo, but I can happily say that I am able to understand much more written German, French, Italian, Portuguese and others on a more limited basis. My current streak is approaching 900 days. I lost my original streak of over 500 days because I did not do enough daily points to qualify, but I had done lessons that day.)

Since January 1, 2012: I have been running at least 1 kilometer. Every. Single. Day. (Oftentimes barefoot.)

Games: Clash of Clans  (level 10 Town Hall, level 6 Builder Hall); Pokemon Go (level 33)
