I usually do not comment on the work of others. My previous feelings on the matter always leaned in a "they put in the work, they reap the rewards,hello?!? direction. However, your post really struck a chord. I am communicating to say simply, CONGRATULATIONS! continue to love yourself enough to prove to yourself that you will always matter and thank you for shaking my cynical, abrasive butt up off the couch, I too will be 50 soon and its about damn time I took myself more seriously.
So again, a big "HELL YEAH" to you and may you always continue to shine.

You go, girl! You are my inspiration! This is the first time I've eer responded to a blog. But your accomplishment is awesome! I'm 46, 40 lbs. overweight, and working at getting back in shape. Pull-ups, chin-ups, and push-ups have always been my nemesis. So when I read that you did 49 of them... That's incredible! It makes me want to achieve similar goals and inspires me with the belief that it's possible! Way to go! emoticon

What a fantastic job! You give me hope. Deb emoticon

How did you feel the next morning? I can't believe your trainer allowed to do that much in one session unless you had been excercising before.

About a month ago I set to physically challenge myself for my 49th birthday. I have been seriously training for over a year but, I needed to prove to myself that I could push myself beyond what I thought I was physically capable of. So I wrote these goals down, handed to my trainer a month ago and went to work on them. Yesterday was my 49th b-day and my goal was to:

49 minutes on the treadmill and a 4.0 speed at 5% incline.

49 minutes of yoga (not one of my original goals, but thrown in for good measure.

In 49 minutes I completed:

49 situps
49 chin ups
49 burpies (for my trainer, because he knows how much I hate them)
49 deadlifts
49 lunges
49 squats
49 swings (w/40 pound weight)
49 push ups (military style)

I walked out of the gym last night at 10PM with such a feeling accomplishment. I had done it!!

Now it's one year until my big 50. My trainer asked me what I would do for that birthday. I said "run a 5K for starters".

So today I give myself a pat on the back. I look back over what an amazing journey the past 3 years have been, losing over 120 pounds and being more physically fit then ever. I BELIEVE ANYTHING IS POSSSIBLE. One just needs to set the goal. Even if we don't succeed, it's the effort that counts.
