What Was I Thinking?

Sometimes I get these brilliant ideas (not) and I get all excited until I actually have to follow through on these ideas. When it's time to follow through I inevitably think, What was I thinking? It's moments like this when I realize that sometimes my head is somewhere other than on my shoulders.

My latest brainstorm is to do the One Hundred Push Ups challenge. You see, walking is the only exercise that I've been doing and while that's not necessarily bad, I know that I should be working other muscle groups. I also don't want to commit the money to going to a gym because I'm trying to find inexpensive ways to improve my overall health and fitness. Is it because I'm too cheap? Yes and no. I'm doing this primarily because I don't want to have any excuses to fall back on. For example, if money suddenly became extremely tight and I had to drop Weight Watchers and a gym membership, where would that leave me? Counting calories and exercising at home are things that I can do in good times and bad times for the rest of my life. Besides, why go to a gym to lift weights when I can lift my body weight? Um, yeah.

Anyway, after getting this brilliant idea, I posted it on Facebook and invited my friends to join me. Some of them actually said they would do it. The fools. (Just kidding! LOVE you all!!!!!!!) Now I actually have to follow through. Yesterday was Day 1 of Week 1 and I survived. It's gonna be a long six weeks but even if I don't make it to 100 push ups, I know that I'm doing something good for my health and fitness. Wish me luck.


  1. Yeah... as one of those "fools" I'm also asking myself, "What was I thinking??!!" LOL


  2. Agh...I stand convicted!

  3. GC: Well, you know the old saying, "Fools of a feather flock together." Or, "The more fools, the merrier!" LOL

  4. Anon: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday are good days to start, too. :-)
