70

Last night I was telling Garth how I did 70 push-ups during a work-out video, to which he replied, "are you sure? I don't think you did 70." Oh no he didn't. I had to prove to him I could do 70 push-ups, so off the couch I go and Garth starts counting. Mind you, I have already done 70 push-ups this morning and now I'm doing another set of 70! My arms are shaking as I finish the 70, and just to spite him, I do another 10. So that is 80 push-ups to prove my husband wrong. Plus 70 from this morning is a grand total of 150 push-ups, and my arms hurt like heck today.

That is pretty much awesome. I don't know if I could ever do that. I tried doing the 100 push-up challenge and it was so hard! I decided to do something else, but maybe I should go back and do some more push-ups.

Were these real push-ups or girl push-ups? Either way I'm impressed but I can only do about 20 girl push-ups so if you did the real ones, I'm in awe!

You go girl! I am impressed! I'm the same way - if someone tells me I didn't or can't do something - you better believe I'm going to do it - even if I just about die trying haha :)

Sweetbabs said...

KC said...

That's awesome! I can NOT do 70 pushups. Hehe..

The Shred has been put on a temporary hold. I've lost 9lbs with it, but I've been spending too many nights out late so getting up early to do the workout isn't happening. I am starting to go on walk/runs though so I still feel good!

Holly molly! You are awesome! I have to ask, girl pushups or the plank pushups? Either way, AMAZING!! I just started doing pushups (30 a day for the past 3 days - I know pathetic, but a start). Anyways, I am doing the girl ones bc, well. . .my arms are a little weak I guess! :) I bet your arms do hurt!! (mine do and you trump me!!)
