Once upon a time…
I found a website with a program where the goal was one hundred consecutive push ups no matter how many you could do to start with. I thought this was excellent and started the program. After a few weeks I was able to do 50 consecutive push ups.
Then I started having trouble with my back hurting.
Then I found out I was three months pregnant.
Then I quit.
Now I’m trying again, because…
1) Once my Mom told me if you are going to do one thing for exercise it should be a push up, and I always do what my Mom tells me to.
3) My jeans do not stretch quite enough to keep up with the stretching my middle is doing.
4)John hates push ups. Therefore he doesn’t want to do them with me. Therefore I will soon be able to do more push ups than him. This gives me bragging/teasing rights over my husband. This is always a good thing!
5) Lets be honest, being able to do a hundred push ups would just be pretty awesome!
So I’ve started the program again and to keep myself on task I’m telling all of you. (Theoretically there is a push up logger that will automatically tweet things for me when I do my workouts, but right now it’s smarter than me…) Admittedly I’m also hoping someone might want to join me, anyone? anyone? If so, you can follow the link in the picture below to the website, it’s easy to get started, it’s only a few minutes three times a week, and all the cool kids are doing it…
