Oh, Christmas Tree … At the End of a Busy Holiday Weekend December 1, 2013

Here it is, Dec. 1. And I did not blog for all 30 days in November, although I did for 19. That’s an accomplishment in itself!

At the end of this long Thanksgiving weekend, I have more I would like to write. But it’s after 10 p.m. and today was long and hectic. So I’ve enjoyed just sitting in the light from the now-up-and-decorated Christmas tree, since that was part of today’s busyness. (And it’s perfectly acceptable to decorate for Christmas now that Thanksgiving is over — remember, I’m a believer in one holiday at a time!)

Christmas treeIn scrolling through Facebook tonight, I also found something I could do in December that would definitely be pushing myself (no pun intended at all): a 30-day push-up challenge.

Sure, it’s the holiday season and I really don’t need one more thing I have to do. But at least this one’s a positive — and one I completely control myself.

I have not been exercising at all, though plenty of intentions to do so. And this requires nothing more than just getting on the floor and doing it — plus knee push-ups (which are all I can do right now) are absolutely acceptable!

So I did four sets of 25 push-ups tonight, with not much rest in between. Going back to the Y’s fitness boot camp days, I never minded doing push-ups and back then did reach a point where I could do “real” ones. That will be my goal. Actually, just doing them consistently is my real goal.

Plus doing push-ups by the light of the Christmas tree is something I can only do this month. And anything exercise-wise to feel better during this crazy month ahead is definitely a positive.

One day down, 30 to go …

this reminds me i need to get back to doing push ups and stop being lazy about them and do them on my toes since i can, but always think i can’t.
