Hey chumps.

I'm eating chocolate-covered pretzels.

I eat pizza every day and weight 115 lbs.

I win.

Day 1 week 1 report

I did 16 on my first test and counted that as my first set. Did 12 and 7 in my next two sets with no problem but only got 4 on my last one (needed 7).
I need a new tag.

Week 2, Day 3 done. Doing my pre-week 3 exhaustion test on Sunday if I feel good enough.

Had a lot of trouble on this one. It was hard enough on set 4, but then I got to set 5. Did 8 and just collapsed. Arms couldn't do it.
So I took another 1 minute break and tried again. Managed to get all 20.

Yow.

Exhaustion test was on Monday. I did 32.
A small improvement over 26, but still an improvement. Before, that would have been impossible.

Week 3, Day 1 is done.
Day 2 looks like a breeze compared to day 3.
I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

Anyone else keeping going?
Feels good, man.

Hurm. Physical activity does increase self confidence. After I re-arranged my room with only my own muscle power, I felt pretty damn good afterwards.

Try running two miles everyday, that should really get you pumped up!

Oh, right. I finished Week 3 before.
Was terribly hard at the end so I'm repeating it. Week 3, Day 1 done again, a good bit easier than last time.
Triceps are shaping up quite well.

Did Week 3, day 3 just now. Sorta.
It's still really hard.
This time instead of repeating the whole week, which I feel is pretty unnecessary, I'm gonna redo Day 3 until I can complete it fully. Set 5 destroys me.
It's really hard compared to the first two days.

EDIT: I am aware though that with working out you will sometimes hit a sort of hard spot.
It happened with my 10-pound dumbell bicep curls I did a year or two back. After I got past that, doing 500 straight was a breeze.
It's at that point you're supposed to increase the weight, but I didn't have anything heavier. Still don't.
But yeah. I'll get past this and week 6 won't look nearly as horrifying. (seriously, go look at it)

Well, I can do 100 push-ups now. It's a good feeling, accomplishing that.
