I begin each morning with 150 crunches, even before I crawl out from under the covers.  When I threw my back out about 10 years ago, crunches seemed to be the best exercise for making each successive 15 minutes more bearable.  I decided then to make them a habit.  I haven't had a recurrence, so maybe they're working....ouch!  Just kidding.

My stomach muscles have gotten much stronger since then.  Here's a recent picture:

"That sort of looks like you," says Virginia.  "Is it really?"

"Sure," I say. "Well, of course that's a statue, but you can imagine how tough it was posing for the sculptor."

"I'm impressed," says Virginia. "I hope you didn't jump up and down."

"'m the other one."
