Sweet Dreams

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Holy moly I'm tired. Not the kind of tired where you fall into a dead sleep; the kind that keeps your mind awake, even though your body's long given up the ghost. With that in mind maybe it's time to talk about dreams... not ones where you're suddenly naked and/or late to an exam! Aspirations.

I have two fitness related dreams. Number one: be trim enough to wear a bikini (despite all the stretch marks). Number two: to be able to execute hand-clap push ups.

Yup, hand-clap push ups. I struggle with push ups at the best of times, hell my coordination's so shocking I practically struggle with hand clapping, but if I could knock out a few of those babies, then I'd know I'd made it. "Hello Wench; here's your medal and a key to smug, fit person paradise where you'll learn the secret to never sweating. You may now own black lycra workout gear".

I work hard on my fitness, but man, oh man, that hand clapping business is a long, long way off.

    First, a dream...
    When you know what you want, you can plan the steps to attain it.
    emoticon Cheering for you!!!

    I have back and shoulder issues (as well as a gimpy knee), so I started with wall pushups, then to pushups leaning on the barbell on the Smith machine (gradually placing it lower), and this week was able to do 19 modified pushups on the floor. One day I'll be able to do a full pushup on my toes. Hand clap? We'll see...

    I can imagine you doing hand-clap push ups, I can imagine you being super fit, I can even imagine you rocking some black lycra (even though I've never seen you). I cannot, however, imagine you ever being smug! :)

    I bet it wasn't that long ago that you thought you'd never be able to swing a kettlebell, run as far as you do, etc, etc, etc. you just keep doing what you're doing and I have no doubt you'll be doing hand - clap push -ups and we'll all be clapping!

    You GO Girl!
