One Hundred Push-Ups: Week Two/Day One

by | Oct 3, 2011 | Blog | 0 comments

For the record, there is a H-U-G-E difference between a wall push-up and a counter push-up. My triceps were crying out, ” please no more, what have we done to you?”

This is the next stage, the critical step, the whole enchilada. I completed the 33 counter level push-ups today and it feels good. I have this week to build some strength and mental toughness because next week, we get lower to the floor with chair push-ups.

I have balanced my workout schedule between weight training classes and cardio (Zumba). This past weekend, I was so lucky to have my daughter with me at the Zumba-thon to raise money for the flood victims. We completed 2 hours and 40 minutes and burned 1163 calories. Then yesterday we did one more hour at another 560 calories. She was a trooper moving those long legs, pony tail wagging and singing along with me to my favorite Pitbull songs. Like mother, like daughter!

My birthday is this week so I am 12 months from turning 50…and I am 33 push-ups closer to that perfect floor push-up. I do not want to jinx myself but I am hoping this last year of my 40’s will be great. I started a new job, lost a few pounds, even purged my old underwear. (Don’t worry Ron, I kept the good ones.(inside joke)). I have a great family and a pug that snores in my ear every night that she sleeps with us.

Week one is past, week two is present and weeks three and four…bring it on!

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
