Pushup Challenge

Back in September a friend of mine who is one of those people who has a body like Jennifer Gardner's on Alias. You know, the type of people who if I wasn't against certain clothing styles for modesty reasons, would be allowed to wear them because they could actually get away with it? You know, the yoga instructor type? Yeah that one. Well, her sons school's football team was doing this challenge and so she started it. I did great for 28 days and then life happened, but I want to try it again and if anyone wants to join please feel free.

The goal? Starting today Monday February 1st--do one push up. Tomorrow do two. Wednesday do three. You get the point you add a pushup everyday. If you can't do military go for girl ones. It took me 17 days the first time to get one full military pushup in. Don't skip ahead if it seems too easy. It gets tough quick enough.

And for those of you who really want a challenge, I am going to do this with sit ups as well. It is a great way to get in a little extra exercise in.

Me too. And I think I'll do crunches as well.

All rightie, then. I'm in, too. Wish me luck!(Thanks for the challenge - and thanks for not saying you were doing it with pull-ups! I'd like to feel like it's too easy for at least a day or two! LOL.)

And since we're starting on the 1st, it'll be easy for me to keep track of how many reps to do each day. :-)

That is why I started it on the 1st and on a Monday to boot. We can do this. I got my 1 and 1 yesterday.

Pull up challenge? Lets see how far we get on this, then maybe? :)
