One part of my fitness (aka wedding prep) routine that I left out of my early post was this push-up obsession that I’ve started. For now, I’ve given up on the 100 PushUp Challenge (that can wait), but I am trying to get 100 total in every day.
The thing is, the arms are where the eyes go on the bride in wedding photos. Don’t believe me? It’s true. And you end up with women sticking their arms out like chicken wings to prevent ‘fat-arm’ which is nearly impossible to avoid — unless you have a push-up regime. And this is all fine, and its going decently well to boot.
So what’s my point? Well, a friend just recently finished his June2000 – a total of two thousand push-ups over the course of a month. Much kudos. But this lead to a July challenge – 5000 crunches in a month. And then he asked if I wanted in. I can’t say no. I’m a sucker for hitting a goal. So on top of the 100 push-ups a day, I will now have to average 162 crunches as well.
At least I have some hope of looking good if I can do all this.
