After attempting the whole one hundred push-up challenge, I decided that I would take things into my own hands. Well, this isn't entirely true. My friend Jodi, who has recently become a fitness maven, told me that she did 5 sets of 20 push-ups and I started to feel a bit of push-up envy. Then envy buried itself inside my brain and turned into a competitive fire.
Over Thanksgiving in Vegas (with my dad and my new twin brothers), I made an amazing pumkin cheesecake for my family and after watching 4, 8 ounce cubes of cream cheese, 2 cups of sugar and all that other really "healthy" stuff, I started to think about the push-ups. I think the first thing that comes to mind when someone is overeating is cardio, but no, I was too distracted by the fact that Jodi could do the push-ups and I couldn't (or so I thought).
If you think you can't do 100 push-ups, you probably can; just start by doing sets of 10, until you can do 15-20 with ease. I finished my 100 by doing a set of 15, 20, 20, 20, 10 and 15. See. not so bad! :)
If you have five minutes of spare time, do some push-ups!
