I just started Week 1again. I tried this program a year ago but quit after about a week and a half. I'm determined to not give up this time.
As for your "girlie" pushups, every things counts. This program was not designed for people to try to keep up with those fitness instructors in the video, this program was designed to get people in shape quickly. Push yourself hard to get great results but not so hard that you give up because you're exhausted or frustrated or injure yourself. It took me a year to realize this and I'm ready to give it another go.
WE CAN DO THIS!

"Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence...
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and stars...In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul" ~ Desiderata
