Tag Archives: 100 Push Up Challenge

Sometimes I do…

So, I have a confession to make.

Remember that 100 Push-up Challenge I mentioned awhile back? Well, I haven’t been doing them for about 2 weeks now. I write down the sets I’m supposed to do on a sticky. Put the sticky on the coffee table so I remember to do them. And then use the sticky for a coaster for my margarita.


Ok, that’s not a margarita. That’s me in Vegas (at Cathouse in the Luxor) about 3 hours after I got married. But the point is…I look just like that with a margarita on my couch.

How am I such a slacker that I can’t even complete 6 weeks of this?  Well, last night,  I decided to finally complete Week 4 Day 1.  I probably wouldn’t have done them if Stephanie didn’t make me feel like such a slacker. Not only is she still doing her push-ups but her whole family is doing them with her.

Way to make me feel lazy, Stephanie! 😉 Only 3 more weeks and I never have to do them again, right?

 In other news, I.am.so.excited!

I just found out the Bobby Lee is coming to the Orlando Improv and I will SO be there. Just bought my tickets. 🙂  If you watched MadTV, you’ll remember him from there.


Or maybe you remember having this poster on your wall back in the day. Or even right now in your family room…


No? Well, I don’t have that poster either. *shifty eyes*

Anyway, in all my excitement, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite recurring characters he did on MadTV – the North Korean Scientist. Enjoy! And laugh. And if you don’t laugh…you are dead to me! (Just kidding, I love you)

Did you ever watch MadTV? Do you miss it like I do? It was so much better than SNL.  Such a bummer it was cancelled 2 years ago.

I’m Breaking Up with Elliptical Machines

Last night I tried the treadmill incline workout that was featured on Peanut Butter Fingers. It was definitely a challenge! The whole workout is close to 2.30 miles, and by the 11% incline, I had to hold on the the machine intermittently to keep up the pace. Today, my buns and hips hurt. And that’s a good thing!

I didn’t run the whole time, so do I add that to my monthly miles? I’m kinda torn on that.

After the incline workout, I hopped on the ellipical for 20 minutes. Then I decided that the elliptical is the most boring machine ever. The ellipticals at my gym make my feet fall asleep. They look like this one. So, you can’t increase the incline – only the resistance. Maybe that’s why my feet fall asleep? Or maybe it’s a stroke from the bottom up.

I was trying to think of things I’d rather do than be on an elliptical. I knew it wasn’t for me when I decided I would rather be the person working at Catering Connection that makes sure 1000 toothpicks go into every box. And that they are in fact, “double pointed.”

Speaking of toothpicks, if you ever don’t know what to do with yours and you have a friend that passed out who happens to have a fro…


Just a suggestion.

Last night, I also did my “initial test” for the 100 Push Up Challenge. I was able to do 16 consecutive push ups until I wanted to “rest” at the top position. This was after my workout and I was still sore from my Cardio Fitness class the day before, so who knows if I could do more. But I’m gonna go with it anyway. I’m starting the challenge on Monday!
