100 push ups – week 1, day 2

August 24, 2011

I almost didn’t do my second day of my one hundred push ups program. I was sore all day yesterday and woke up sore today, especially my abs. I decided to make  myself do my push ups and expected to fail miserably. I was surprised though when I went through the first 4 sets without a single problem. The final set has you do your max with a minimum. I wanted to get more than the minimum in, but I was only able to get to the minimum. I struggled with the last push up in the last set too. I’m happy though that even sore I was able to get through my sets and this will help my confidence for the coming weeks.

Here is week 1, day 2:

Wednesday Goal Wednesday Actual
6 6
8 8
6 6
6 6
max (at least 7) 7


I’m almost back down to my pre cheat day weight. I think I would have already been back down to it if it hadn’t been for my additional gain on Sunday. Lesson learned (again) though. If I deviate from what I know is safe and works I may not lose weight that day. Which is fine because this is all a learning process and this journey is not a short one. In the end I have to know how to live my life so that I won’t gain all my weight back. So if I never deviate from the exact same routine I will not be well equipped to handle life once I hit my goal.

Finally, I am still in love with intermittent fasting. My body is making a few changes for sure. I was only getting hungry once a day and that wasn’t till after I got off work at 9pm. The last two days I was actually starting to get hungry around 3:00-3:30pm. My eating times are 4:00pm-12:00am so this is still pretty good. So the past two days I have eaten two meals instead of the one meal I was eating last week. I still feel great with the two meals and still really love the times of fasting. I recommend everyone give it a shot if you can safely do so. I just love the way my mind and body operate while in my fasting window, and even after eating.


Here is my motivation for getting in better shape!

      Thank you! He is such an amazing little boy! I just want to be able to keep up with him, and never disappoint him because “dad’s too fat to do that”!

    Way to go Aaron, giving that extra push is what separates the successful from the not.

    Good luck in good health,
