Two Hundred Sit-Ups

Saturday, January 15, 2011

A good Spark friend (hi Diane!) referred me to a website called

If all goes well, I'm going to start their program on Sunday. I'm pretty sure that I've never been able to do 200 sit-ups in my life, and I know that I don't like doing them either. Since one of my goals for this year is to tighten and tone, I figured that I should at least give this a try.

I'd love to have company in this attempt, especially if you're a beginner at sit-ups like me.
It would be great to have the accountability and motivation of sit-up buddies.

Oh, and I actually started this yesterday, but apparently I didn't know the proper way to use my new weight bench. I woke up with a sore back this morning...abs were fine. So after showing my hubby how I was sitting on the bench, he was kind enough to show me the right way to use it! I plan to give my back a day or two to recover, and start again on Sunday or Monday. These plans to get my body healthy and in shape seem to be having the opposite effect. I've been dealing with a sore shoulder since before Christmas, and it's now been joined by a sore back. emoticon

    You go! I have no doubt that once you get started and do them correctly that you will achieve the 200 situps. My abs hurt just thinking about it right now. LOL!

    I'm doing that too, along with the hundred pushups which I'm finding much more difficult! Good luck with the challenge!
