I completed one of my goals for 31@31!
Doing 100 push ups a day seemed to be something near impossible for me a lazy, out of shape gal but instead it has really been fun and fired me up to make more fitness goals.
In October I did 100 push ups every day! Sorry I got caught up with NaNoWriMo and homework last month and forgot to post this!
While I did 100 push ups a day I’m not going to stop there!
A few days before the end of the month as a joke a coworker and I did some squats… I don’t remember what the joke was but at four o’clock in the morning I find everything funny! When I was sore the next day from the joke (plus squatting quite a bit at cousin’s photo shoot) I had an epiphany and started adding squats in too.
November 1st I did take it easy and only did 25 of each exercise but am now working towards 100 standard push ups a day. Each day I’m adding more standard push ups into each set and feel it has increased my strength (I mentioned before) and giving me a sense of accomplishment I didn’t expect but certainly welcome.
That doesn’t mean I have zero concerns. I need to watch my joints, they are very loose and easy to overextend. Plus, I thought by day 31 (not to mention I started doing push ups daily over 4 months ago) it would be so much easier but I still can’t do more than 40 modified push ups in a row.
That’s okay maybe it will be my next fitness goal 🙂
Gearing up for vacation where I’m going to attempt the rock wall for the first time. Hope all these push ups help a bit!
