6 week challenge

I work well with goals. I work well with challenges. I'm very competitive and a bit obsessive. (For those who know me personally, you just realized that I described myself to a T!)

So, in order to kick my own ass back into gear, I'm challenging myself for the next 6 weeks! I was going to make it a 4 week challenge, until That Pink Girl tweeted about the 100 push-up challenge. What?! A challenge? I must learn more... Basically it's a 6 week challenge that in end of the 6 weeks you'll be able to do 100 consecutive push-ups. Badass! ....hence the (now) 6 week challenge.

The challenge?
  • No eating out for breakfast or lunch at work (save money and calories)
  • Eat 5-6 mini meals every day
  • Run 4 days a week
  • Ab work out (from my boxing days*) 6+ days a week
  • 100 push-up challenge (website)
Start date: Monday, May 10
End date: Sunday, June 20

Here's to the next 6 weeks!

*- About boxing. I've decided after Chicago, I'm going back to the sport. I miss it too much. Gotta get into fightin' shape! ;)


  1. The 100 push-up challenge is the work of mastermind @britishbulldog—dunno if you follow him, but he's good people.

    Boxing is awesome. Progressing from pat-pat-patting the heavy bag to WHACK! WHACK! THOOMP! is so gratifying. And exhausting.

    Have you ever done Muay Thai (Thai boxing) training? I would highly, highly recommend it. You think you're exhausted now throwing jabs, crosses and hooks, wait until you're throwing roundhouse kicks into the mix. Kicking takes a ton of energy, but it is so much fun.

  2. Great job! It sounds like an awesome challenge. I'm sure you will be successful! You seem determined enough :D

  3. Yay for 100 push up challenge! I'm off to do my Day 2. We are SO going to rock those hundred!
