Push-Ups for a month challenge starts January 1st

With the success I had on my sit-up challenge in December, I decided to continue with a new challenge: push-ups!

Push-ups are, in my opinion, harder to do, but so important for parents of small children or babies.  Carrying Little Dude around isn’t going to feel easier, unless I strengthen my arms!

So, I’m starting this challenge tomorrow, January 1st:

* measure both biceps from the biggest bulge of muscle

* 50 push-ups a day (can be spread out, since doing them all at once will be nearly impossible)

If you plan to join me, please comment below!

Whether or not you are female, you can do “girl push-ups” – the point is to improve your strength and if that’s all you can do, then cool.  If you graduate to “real” push-ups by the end, you rock.

Here’s my before pictures.

I’m a little late, but I think I’m going to join you! I’ve never been good at BIG challenges, but this seems like something within the realm of possibility, and I like that! Simple, and easy to follow. I’m in! (and when hubby gets home, I’m going to ask him to join in) Now I’m just in debate if I should try adding sit ups too- hmmm. Maybe I’ll stick to one thing at a time. 😉
