For those of you who were jocks in high school, motivation to workout is unnecessary. For the rest of us, motivation to get active in adulthood is elusive. Frankly, I would rather do absolutely nothing than move my body to the point of getting sweaty and out of breath. However! I am aware that daily movement and sweat = looking good. Also, health = feeling good. But let's be real, it's about looking good. So, in the pursuit of vanity, I have decided to adopt the (almost entirely arbitrary) goal of doing 50 consecutive pushups.
Step one is a 30-Day challenge to do as many pushups per day as possible. Pretty sure this will tone my arms nicely. I've always wanted to have better upper-body strength and look more like a soldier than a muppet.
|No biceps to speak of.|
Today, I can do approximately 1.5 regular pushups, or 10 on my knees. It's going to take a while, I guess, but if I do as many as I can every day, then I should probably be able to reach my goal sometime before Christmas.
