Coming Clean


That’s right, I am coming clean today.

I present to you, the sad number of full push-ups that I can do:

It ain’t pretty, but hey, it’s week 1. And I will improve! Oh yes, I will improve.

How many full push-ups can you do? Come on, say a low number and make me feel better. :P


I felt like a zombie at the gym this morning. I don’t know what it was but I just felt so out of it. I had a hard time falling asleep again last night so I’m sure that had something to do with it. I don’t think I fell asleep until 1am. Ugh. No matter how slumpy I feel on Mondays, knowing I had a great workout always makes me feel better though!

My workout:

  • Ran 1 mile on treadmill (then I realized it was my X-train day) so I switched
  • 28-30 mins on the Elliptical, resistance 8-10, incline 8-14
  • 24 flights stairs
  • Duration: 43:30 mins.
  • Max heart rate: 161 bpm (83% of max)
  • Avg heart rate: 148 (76% of max)

After my workout, I ate breakfast (Nature’s Path Spelt cereal and an apple) and got ready for work. I also have a podiatrist appointment to talk to the Dr. about getting orthotics at 10am, then off to work!!!!


Today is going to be a very busy day at work! Meetings, meetings, meetings.
Hope you all have a GREAT Monday! :D

Hey Angela,

You’re so cute! 12 is not bad at all. I don’t think i can do that many. I’ll have to see how many I can do and get back to you. I’ve always wanted to be able to do pushups. My upper body strength is the pits! Definitely something to improve upon!

That’s not a bad number at all! Keep up the good work!

Have a good day!

You had yiruma in the background~ love it. I could listen to it all day.
I think i would be able to do less pushups especially on week one of a workout regimine. I really want to do the power 90 workout. Have you heard anything about it?

My boyfriend’s been wanting to buy the power 90 workout for a while now. I would love to hear comments if anyone has tried it.

Angela, great job on the push ups! I will try this evening and get back to you. I know it’s definitely less than 10! haha

12 seems like a good number to me! I think your back could be a little flatter, though.
I have been trying to add more push-ups to my routine. I like to alternate sets of elbows in versus elbows out to work my chest and triceps.

Sounds like a great workout! Cool blog too!


8 Jess November 24, 2008

12 is pretty darn good! Ideally you should try to keep your backs straighter so you get your chest closer to the floor, I think on a pushup your elbows should be at around 90 degress. I’ll have to test myself to see how many I can do!
