GIVEAWAY!

It's no secret that I am in love with the 100 Push-Up Challenge. I posted a while ago about how my first round went, and some tips for how to go about completing the program. Since starting, I have noticed a huge difference in the look of my upper body--my shoulders, arms, chest, and back. If you haven't started yet, start now! It will be the easiest part of your fitness routine, and it can be done anywhere.

If you need a little extra help starting the program, then this giveaway will be PERFECT for you. I'm just about the luckiest girl in the world, because Steve Speirs, the creator of the 100 Push-Up Challenge, signed and sent me a copy of his book 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups.



This book is so informative and I can't stop reading it. Not only does it have a detailed plan for reaching 100 Push-Ups, but it is tailored to your current level of fitness. There are charts to help track your progress, as well as tons of information about which muscles are worked in different positions. If you're a total beginner, there is a section devoted to preliminary workouts that will get you ready for the challenge. If you're already a push-up pro, then you'll find advanced push-ups to master (clapping, on a Bosu ball, etc.) Steve happens to know a thing or two about fitness, and he just completed a 24 hour endurance run where he completed 106.25 miles. You can read about it, and lots more, on his blog.

Sold yet? If you want your very own copy of this book--signed by Steve himself--here's what you need to do:
Imagine your name there instead of mine!

  9. I am already a follower!! I actually started the 100 push up program but stopped at week 3. I just kinda forgot about it. Everyone I know who's done this challenge was never able to make it to 100 but they were able to do at least 50. If I could do 50 push ups that would be AMAZING compared to the 6 0r 8 I can do now.

  26. I have a random question- I'm enjoying your blog and I also checked out your husband's home building blog! But I am curious- do you two have jobs? I'm just wondering how you can have so much fun building your house, maybe you are a lucky person who doesn't have to work? Anyway maybe it's too personal but I am genuinely curiouis because you never talk about going to work, and I'm definitely jealous :D.

Race the Bar 5k Recap (AKA: A Personal Worst!)

Do you remember a few weeks back, when I was all braggy about running in Florida in February/March? Sunny mornings around a lake with a light breeze off the water have turned, cruelly, into humid stretches of time where I am humbly reminded of my own limitations. You guys, I see these gazelle-like creatures, men and women alike, who prance on my running route with compression socks, a soft glow of perspiration at their brow. It's beautiful. It's also a harsh reminder that I am not them. I am currently running in the thinnest, smallest items of clothing I can without offending anyone (shirt stays on, people). I dare not step outside without some awful visor or wide-brimmed hat. When I hop in the shower after a run, my face is a deep crimson that causes my husband to voice his concern for my general well-being. Have I mentioned this is what happens after my easy runs, with a few walk breaks thrown in? Yeah. It's humbling. Now, I'm not complaining. It's beautiful

DIY Treadmill Desk

Working from home has its perks. Sure, my social interaction skills are deteriorating rapidly and casual dress Fridays now include those old ratty boxers and that one race shirt with the hole, but I also get to enjoy things like eating lunch at 10:30 because I feel like it and deciding where I want to work. Like on the treadmill. DIY Treadmill Desk Between working at my desk all day, using my computer for fun and then sitting on the couch watching television most nights for an hour or two, it's safe to say I sit on my ass a lot. And yep, that's not so great for you. Even though I work out 6 days a week, I hate that I spend easily 75% of my waking hours sitting. On a whim, I asked Tim if he could build me a treadmill desk. I've seen these massive contraptions to make treadmill desks, but they basically transform it into a full-time desk, and I still want to use my treadmill for running (sans desk) as well. Magic carpenter man took a few measurements and brought m

Shoe Snobs and Chinese Fake-Out

As some of you saw on my Daily Mile post yesterday, I got some new shoes in the mail. Normally I start jumping up and down when I get new shoes, but these were-gasp! Cheap running shoes.  On the whole I think the running community is pretty great, but let's face it...most, if not all of use, are shoe snobs. I'm including myself here, no need to get defensive. A few months back I ordered a pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11s. They sound like a fighter jet, but they're actually just running shoes. They worked great, I like them, and they come in at OVER $100 bucks. In my house (the one without a TV or curtains) $100 on shoes just can't happen. So I researched similar shoes, looked up what was available on sale at Runningwarehouse.com , and wound up with these bad boys: Asics. They actually have remarkably similar stats to the shoes I wore before, but...they're not as cool. I wore them for a 7 mile run yesterday and it just felt off .   #insignificant problems I&
