Day 1 of exercises are over and done with, and let me just say that I hate push-ups... There is no way in hell that my body can do them in the shape I'm in... I got through three... I'm supposed to do 10 reps of a set of 3 Push-ups wit 60 seconds in between each rep... so not going to happen - I think they're something I'll have to work myself up to. On a brighter note: I could do the rest of the exercises... not great with the balancing ones but I did them.

Now I'm off to get some more of my NaNoWriMo done - Sons of Evenmore: Blood to Blood.


  1. How are you doing your pushups? On the floor? If you don't mind a suggestion, you might find it easier to use a bar that is adjustable to different levels. You'd be doing slanted push-ups. Choose a level above your waist, move your feet back until you're in a position as if you're doing floor push-ups. As you get stronger you can lower the bar until you can do push-ups on the floor.

    1. Thanks for the advice, Penumbra. Yes I was attempting them on the floor... but tried your way using the railing... On the floor I managed 3 of the 33 but using the railing I managed them all. Though I must admit my thighs are killing me from the amount of different squats I had to do... I hope my legs get used to them soon... With this regime I work out every second day.

    2. You're welcome and yay to completing them all :) Squats are very difficult for me too, they're not my favorite.

    3. Apparently my thighs don't like the squats either...LOL.
