Remember that little thing called the 100 push-up challenge? Yes, I’m still doing it. I just took a little break. On accident. Instead of waiting 1-2 days between workouts, I waited a week. But I’m back on track now. Sorry about that little hiccup.
I did the workout for Week 5, Day 2 last night, following column 1. As you can see, there are a lot more sets now but with fewer pushups on each set. I barely maxed out at 25 on set 8. I’m confident I could do 50 consecutive push-ups by the end of the program…but 100?? It still seems pretty ambitious at this point. But I’m going to keep following the program and shall remain optimistic about the final results. 🙂
How are all you fellow challengers coming along with your push-ups these days?
REST 45 SECONDS BETWEEN EACH SET (LONGER IF REQUIRED)
|SET 8||max (at least 25)||max (at least 40)||max (at least 45)|
I was inspired by Emily and made a veggie egg scramble for lunch. I sauteed some mushrooms, spinach and a miniscule amount of red onion I had hanging around and then scrambled it up with two whole eggs and one egg white. Eggs for lunch is totally underrated.
You know what else is underrated? Chard. It’s so good. And so pretty. I mean, look at those colors. I have a little crush on rainbow chard.
I chopped it up [including the stalks because I like the extra crunch but feel free to slice around and discard that part], tossed it in a pan over medium heat with a little olive oil and cooked it until it wilted to about 1/bajillionith of its original size.
See 1/bajillionith of chard after cooking. [Also see Gossip Girl waiting to be watched. :)]
Speaking of bajillions, please watch the first two videos [The Man Your Man & Did You Know] posted at this site. These commercials are hilarious. You’re welcome.
Alright, I’ve got to do laundry, make a playlist, and go to bed early watch Gossip Girl all night. xoxo 🙂
