Motivate Me Monday :)

December 11, 2011

Hey Guys, this is my first week of linking up with Ashley, Amanda, and Whitney for Motivate Me Monday :)

This weeks challenge is to see how many push-ups you can do throughout the week.
First off, I'd like to start out by saying I've never been one for arm strength. In high school, I was a runner and never did much with my arms other than lifting the bar or maybe a few arm curls here and there. My work outs would consist of leg workouts and running 3 to 7 miles a day up until I got out of high school that is.  As soon as I graduated, I stopped working out altogether. :( I miss it entirely way too much, and I can't seem to motivate myself to run alone. I do, however, use Just Dance as a means of working out. I believe that it does me more good than sitting on my bum doing nothing. You should try it ;)

This is something to think about :)
It's so true!

Back to the push-ups, I, being the whimp I am, can probably do a few good push-ups, than i'm on the ground. I don't know much about arm strength because I know I am far beyond having it, but I do know that for my age I should be able to do a whole lot more than a couple push-ups. I also don't know what it is, but I think my hands are what hurt more than my arms after trying to do push-ups. It could be my small frame trying to support my body weight that is causing my wrists and hands so much pain, which is why I refrain from doing them :) 

A little insight on my nutritional value of soda is don't drink them :) They are truly worthless to your body, and will do you more harm than good! I haven't been drinking carbonated drinks for almost 7 years now, and it is probably one of the greatest changes I've ever made in my life. I have stuck to water, juices, milk, tea, and other alternatives that are much healthier for me.  I may not work out every day or even every week, but I do watch the foods I consume, which ultimately has kept me pretty healthy!

I hope you will join us with your motivational insights :)
& wish me luck as I take my First final today!
Happy Monday Everyone!

  4. Good luck on finals girl! You will rock em! I recently gave up soda and although it hasn't quite even been two weeks I know I can keep up with it. I did it a few years back and was able to keep myself from drinking it for 2 years. This time I think I'm giving it up for good though cuz it's just not good for your body!
