One Hundred Push-Ups

by | Sep 22, 2011 | Blog | 0 comments

As you have been reading this past year, I love Zumba.  I enjoy the music, the exercise and my “front row ho” friends.  It is super. The recovery from my knee surgery has been quite slow and so I have added some new things to my workout.  Chisel is a great class that ties in the energy from the music and the dynamic of the class to achieve strength in weight bearing exercise.  Sounds great, right?

Well, I have been taking this class for a while and I cannot perform a push-up. I mean a real tried-n-true man’s push-up.  I cannot and will not turn 50 years old and not be able to do a real push-up.  So I spoke to the instructor for help and she turned me on to 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups! http://hundredpushups.com/ 

I have enlisted the help of some friends from the gym, friends from work and anyone else who can get on this bandwagon of encouragement to do 100 push-ups. I figured if I make this public, I cannot and will not back out.  (I need that)

I went to the website and took the initial test.  Sadly, I cannot start the 7-week program because I cannot do even 1 push-up.  Therefore, I am in the  preliminary 4 week weenie  program where I will start with wall push-ups, then counter push-ups, then on a chair and then to the floor on your knees.  OK, so that was somewhat of a set back but hey, I am on the way.

I will update this blog as I go so please jump on board with me.  Post a comment on the blog so we can share our support, laughs and ultimate success!  I fell like an iron man already.

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.
