100 Pushups

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Today I started the 100 pushups plan. I bet I can do 100 pushups with some practice. I think the most I ever did was 18 or so. Today, I did 7 to start, and then another 24 with breaks. No biggie. Felt pretty good.

One of my SP goals was to have toned arms, so here we go.

I'm not really a goal maker. I recognize it is important and helpful. But I've never been much of a goal setter. Some people are like, "I want to have a million dollars in the bank by the time I'm 33" and then set mini-goals to get there. Well, not me. I meander around, sniffing flowers and navel gazing.

Today I'll add the 100 push ups goal to my tiny list of goals.

Thanks to Lisa_Burt58, my SP recruiter, who got me fired up about looking good today!

Peace, friends!

    My goal for this year is much more modest than yours - I want to be able to do 10 FULL push-ups, not these wimpy "girl" push-ups that I can only half do now. I am going to keep working on it too.

    I can barely do modified ones right now, but maybe I'll try doing 5 more each time. 100 though is a bit steep - plus it reminds me of my first BF who had OCD and had to do 100 pushups before going to bed no matter what.

    The 100 pushup challenge is great! Amazing how it builds your muscles!

    I challenge you to a meandering contest! I warn you, I'm like that Family Circus cartoon where the kid is everywhere and nowhere.

    I've always been a goal setter, but I hardly ever actually met any. Frustrating!

    The "new me" races toward goals with a vengence. I'm totally hooked now that I've tasted the glory of a successful pursuit!

    At the end of your push ups goal, you will be wondering, "What next?"

    How about a mini-goal to meet a mini-goal? You could do your 100 pushups in sets of 5, 10...whatever number you like. You are inspiring me to set a goal as well...I've never been a navel-gazer but I am prone to stopping dead in my tracks to watch a hummingbird and chasing butterflies...oh, back to the goal, sorry...heehee emoticon I will do 50 a day. Your arms are going to look magnificent!! emoticon emoticon

    not only will you get toned arms...chest and back too. that's why i like doing them. hit lots of areas with just one exercise although i can only do .the modified ones. not ready for the manly man ones. emoticon

    From a fellow not so great at goal setting person who also is of meandering pisces ADD genetic make-up, tiny, incremental goals that matter to the end result, I hear you. Not born with big picture goggles here, I've been more of a fragmenter of passions as they present. High-Five on the Goal-Goggles Albert! emoticon emoticon
