One Hundred Push-ups: wow, where am I?

by | Oct 19, 2011 | Blog | 0 comments

I have lost track of time the last few days. I have been doing my push-ups religiously but sadly, have not progressed past the counter-level push-ups. MY lack of posting is not reflective of this stand still, or at least I think it isn’t.

This morning at my chisel class (5:45 am), I struggled with upper body exercises.  I am proud to share with you that I no longer use the “old lady, weenie green weights” that are 2 pounds. I refuse to go back to using them.  I did about 30 wall push-ups and about 20 dips from the bench.  My triceps hurt! The instructor Adrean is fantastic. She says quiting is not an option and she is right.

As I mentioned before, I have been feeling blue about not being able to progress with these push-up challenges.  I have spoken with a friend at the gym and she stopped the plan but assured me when would get back on it, and I know she will.  She was burning up the Zumba floor tonight with Dawn. I met a nice woman the other night at Zumba who was new to it and seemed so frustrated.  I encouraged her, as someone once encouraged me and gave her a high-5 when the class was done.  She was smiling from ear-to-ear. We all try, we sometimes fail or flounder, but in the end, I think we all know what we need to do. (keep going, get support and don’t look back)

On a similiar note, I am working for a great group but they can not support my “Blackberry habit”…..I have been forced to the iPhone 4S. UGH, I want to throw it out the car window at 75 miles per hour.  My kids had to show me how to use it and they don’t even have an iPhone!  So since my push-ups for the day are done, I think I will read the NY Times on that thing and see if I can warm up to it.  TTYL, as the kids say……

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.
