The No-Stretchy-Pants-Required Challenge

It’s time to begin Experiment No. 3.

I’m diverting a bit from the “30 Days” guideline, but it’s for a good cause! This one is a 6-week challenge, and if all goes as planned, the next challenge will be another 6-week challenge, making 3 months between the two of them.

Here it is: 100 pushups! I used to be able to do 25 or 30 consecutive pushups, but never 100. When I had the most upper body strength from sailing and doing a bit of climbing, I never tried to do pushups, so I don’t know how many I could have done then. Silly.

For more information on the challenge, go here: hundredpushups.com C’mon, do it with me!

I chose pushups for this challenge because we are in the middle of moving across country, and I felt it was the most portable exercise–even more than Pilates or other mat work, since I don’t have to wear stretchy pants and a sports bra to do pushups!
