So Monday night I plopped down infront of Twitter, (although I must be getting older because I want to call it the Twitter like the tv or the computer) and I started catching up on the days events. I happily tweeted about my new water bottle. I will find a door to successful hydration. I would happily respot to an IV drip but I don’t think that is actually an option.
Then I was reading a few more of the active tweets and @EricaMayer tweeted about her before photos. We chatted briefly about struggles with weightloss and I discovered I am jealous of her! Of what exactly? The fact that @EricaMayer can do pushups!!! I tried as we tweeted, I cleared a spot, got down on the floor and “honest to blog” I tried! I can lift a 250lb+ person and carry them across a room. I have incredible strength in my legs and my back. I lack strength in my arms. I cant lift weights, doctors orders. So… what does this have to do with anything? I have never been able to do anything other than that girly cheater pushup that kids do as a copout in gym class.
I have set a new goal for myself! I want to be able to do 10 pushups! I was going to set it as one, but that seems like I am just doing it to do it and would quit. Underachiever much? So I am embarking on the Pushup Challenge! Starting today I am working the program, starting with “Wall Pushups” then “modified” then onto “mens.” I have no misconceptions that this will be easy for me. Like I said I have never done a pushup in my life but just like the 5k I am ready to take on a new challenge!
Anyone want to join me as I quest for PushUp Success? #10PushUpChallenge
