Having Serious Doubts

I’ve started my journey to doing 100 consecutive pushups. I am looking at the amount of pushups I have done so far and thinking about how much I’ve struggled. I am now wondering if this is even possible. I went back to the site to make sure I was doing things correctly. I’veĀ  completed day two of week one tonight, and I can’t lift my arms to type. I can feel tiredness and soreness shoot up my arms for every key press as I type. Can anyone in any sort of decent physical shape confirm that it’s supposed to be this hard?

Buried in Busyness

Even though summers don’t exist like they used to when I was in school, I still see summer as a time when I can accomplish the things I want to do. Perhaps it is the long sunlight hours available that make it so great for getting things done. You all know I made a list of things to do about two months ago. I’ve accomplished, pretty much nothing. If you count three or four casts in five minutes, then I got fishing scratched off my list. Kayaking in the ocean is almost like jet skiing, right? That above ground pond is out of the question, although it may turn into a true pond if I can convince my mom that grass is over rated. Brewing beer? Who has the time to wait for beer to become drinkable when I can pick up a frosty cold one at the store now?

Rather than take this as motivation to start accomplishing things on the list, I’ve decided to add one more thing that I will not accomplish this summer. I stumbled across this site that will help people reach the goal of doing 100 consecutive pushups. As someone who hasn’t hit the gym since George W. Bush was popular, this sounds like just the thing for me. I was going to do the initial test tonight, but it’s late and I’ve already showered. We’ll see if this comes up again this summer…or ever again.
