You Did What!?

Let me start off this post by saying, the push-ups I do are mostly done on my knees and when I do pull-ups, they are done with one leg kicked out on a chair (you still used you upper body like crazy but it isn't quite as hard). It is all still very intense but doing the moves like that, make it so you can steadily build the muscle up, instead of just struggling. 
(The pull ups go something like this)
On Monday I did an hour long workout that consisted mostly of pull-ups and push-ups. It was really hard but I enjoyed it a lot, I pushed myself and it payed off because by the time the workout was over and I had completed 85 pull-ups and a whopping 201 push-ups! After the workout I went and told my husband, whose reaction was something along the lines of...'You did what...!?' This is only the second time I have done this workout, the first time I forgot to write down my numbers (sad!) so I don't have anything to compare my progress to but I'm excited to see how far I can push myself and hopefully I'll have even more progress to report soon!

That is insane! and very impressive. Nicely done Amber! If we were doing a season right now I think this would make you automatically win.

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
