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.

    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
