First of all, thank you to all of the people who inquired about my progress throughout the month. It was appreciated. Second, I didn't take into account the fact that muscles grow faster than ligaments. There were times when my elbows hurt, so if you are thinking of attempting a similar feat, please keep that in mind. And third, I tried a tiered system I found off of the Internet and, like all things off of the Internet, things aren't what they seem.
The final total: 39.
Considering I started at 10, I think a nearly 300% increase is acceptable.
That means that some lucky (TBD) charity will receive a $61 check. Suggestions welcomed.
