In another effort to take better care of my body, I’m committing to complete the 100-day-challenge that husband has suggested many times, but I have always avoided. The challenge I am taking on is this:
Day 1: 1 push-up & 1 sit-up
Day 2: 2 push-ups & 2 sit-ups
Day 3: 3 push-ups & 3 sit-ups
Day 99: 99 push-ups & 99 sit-ups
Day 100: 100 push-ups & 100 sit-ups
Something to remember is that all of the push-ups and sit-ups do not have to be done all in one session. At the beginning, it’s easy, but as the days go on, I know I will not be able to do, say, 60 push-ups in one session. I just need to do them at some point that day. I may do 20 when I get up, 20 after class, and 20 before bed. If I miss a day, I need to make those up the next day. So if I miss day 20, on day 21, I need to do 41 push-ups and 41 sit-ups. Make sense? Want to join? I’m on Day 3 today. By the end, I will have completed 5050 push-ups and sit-ups. My goal is to do as many of my push-ups as straight, military, push-ups rather than the “girl” push-ups. It’s time for me to graduate from those–hopefully forever.
Ask me about this and keep me accountable! Christmas will be Day 28 and New Year’s Day 35. I foresee these as lazy days.
