what I'm working on now

I'm working on graphs that show the sort of progress I want to make from June 1 to December 31. Some people have already privately told me that my schedule is too accelerated, and since I can't even do a single pushup in my present state, I sort-of agree. But life develops best under pressure, and when it comes to doing pushups, pullups, and things of that nature, some pressure is, I think, necessary. For what it's worth, I'll be following programs that don't even start you on the exercises you're trying to master: the pullup program, for example, has you starting off ridiculously easy by doing horizontal tractions in a doorway. I'll quit these programs and revise my schedule if even these exercises prove to be too difficult, but for the moment, they all look doable. So expect graphs later.

blood pressure
blood sugar
stairs training
resting heart rate

—Not necessarily in that order. Stay tuned.

Agree on the need for pressure. My motto had always been No Pain, No Gain. 고진감래.
