Today, as I was doing my strength training exercises, I remembered the resolution I made last January: to do five pushups. I decided I would try and see my progress. I got down on the ground, put my hands into position, and, to my surprise, I was able to push myself up easily! Well, maybe VERY easily, but still, I could do it with a lot less effort than all those months ago. I decided to go ahead and try for a total of five and BAM! I did it!!!
I even tried again and did five more! They aren't the best looking pushups, but I can tell that I have progressed a ton. I was pretty surprised. I hurried to tell my mom, but she didn't have as much excitement as I did. Haha! I was worried I wouldn't even accomplish my resolution before this January, but I even have months to spare. Now, I can work on my form, and continue toning my triceps. I think what especially helped was my new job, which requires me to lift heavy boxes.
Have you reached your New Year's Resolution? January is creeping up awfully fast, so you'd better get crackin'! Hahaha!
