Just a little announcement, since I made a huge freakin’ deal over it: I didn’t have to do any push ups last night. I did, however, burn 660 calories. I’m trying to challenge myself to 800 in a couple of weeks and then 1000 by the end of next month. I’m not telling Pinboy any of this, of course. He’d just put me on the rack or something.
He mentioned putting ankle weights on me and turning the incline up high so that I build up the muscles I need to do the treadmill with more gusto. I told him I’d throw them at him. Heh.
So, this weekend, I will be trying to do push ups in the privacy of my own home. Why? Because I’m competitive, especially with myself. I need to see if I can do it, because I hate more than anything to say, “I can’t.”
