Motivation is Hard

I am starting my thrid week of training and have yet to get a full week in. Something always comes up. This past week I returned to my Tuesday Boot Camp workouts at the gym and we did a few puchups as part of the set. Come Wednesday it was hard to do a full set. Friday worked for me and I ended up doing more pushups in one day than I ever have before, 55. My 20 year high school reunion is next month and it would be great to show up looking fabulous. Help me find my motivation!

Ughhhhh. I hear you, Kris. I'm in exactly the same boat. Week before last, did the first week. Last week was going flat out -- not enough sleep, way too busy. But I also realize that I doubt it's possible. So, that's my mission tomorrow: to seek out those who have made it (Mark Howarter says he has), and those who are close. We need inspiration!

It IS hard. HCHC is on week 6, day 1, and I definitely didn't finish the workout. It's killer.

However, we did our progress test last Friday and were pretty surprised how far we've come. Most of us who could barely do 5 pushups in a row before starting this program can now do over 40 in a row!

Even if I don't make it to 100, I think I'm happy.

Thanks! I am loving the change in my arms after just a little work. This week I started with spiderman pushups instead of knee assisted and it rocked me. But I got through 40 after five sets.
