Today's challenge: Today I felt stressed. I'm researching some new fitness goals, and today's diet felt unfocused and lacking a strong purpose. Also, I think I could have better warded off the snacking by some stronger resolve on my part.
Actual fitness: 50 minute leg work-out, abdominals and push-ups for the 100 push-up challenge
Note on knees: I didn't run today to give them a little break. But I think they feel great when I run. I will note that there is a spot on my right knee that, for example, when I'm doing walking lunges, I can't let that knee hit the floor because there is still a tender spot on the knee cap. If it persists, I may just get that checked out. I question if that will go away. It seems to be a different pain than the bruised ligaments around the knee cap. And, it doesn't hurt unless pressure is applied.
Note on picture: Just a fun self-portrait from Sunday afternoon.
100 Push ups For 100 Married Months
Good Monday, everyone!
I'm sure you have all heard about the 100 push up challenge that was going around the blog sphere a few months back. Basically, it's a program that takes you through six weeks of push ups work-out to work up to being able to crank out 100 push ups all at once.
As a I mentioned awhile back, my husband and I will be married for 100 months on February 7. A few weeks ago I said to my husband, "Hey, I know what we can do to celebrate 100 months of marriage? Let's do 100 push-ups together!!"
He thought it was a great idea. But that was two weeks ago, and we haven't started the work-outs yet and it's only four weeks until our 100 month anniversary.
But, I may just be in luck. You see, I an already do a fair amount of push ups due to the chest workout that I do. I can already crank out four sets of 15 full push-ups. That's 60 separated out.
If you look at the "initial push up test" that they have you do, if you can do more than 20 push-ups starting out, you can skip the first two weeks and start up on the week 3 of the six week program.
So, tonight, my husband and I are going to go for broke on our push-up test and try to get in more than 20 push ups. I'm personally thinking I can maybe put out 30. We'll see.
I'll let you know tomorrow.
