Pin38Share13TweetShareEmail51 SharesLadies it’s time to get those flabby arms in shape and give the girls a little lift for fall. Yup! I’m doing it, the 30 Day Push Up Challenge….of course mine will be a beginner’s challenge for all the lazy a$%’s out there.So I came across a post on LinkedIn from one of my blogger buddy connections, The Fashionista Next Door and she was sharing her article about doing the 30 day push up challenge. Well lately I’ve been staring in the mirror and noticing that my arms just don’t quite seem to have as much shape to them, like they used to. Yes, the guns are looking a little shaky ladies, and no I’m not down for growing wing flaps. You know, the flabby flappies.It’s time to do something about this!I have my chart all ready and I’m not even gonna try to procrastinate on a start date. I’m setting it off today.Now I’m gonna be honest (as if I lie to you guys all the time….what am I saying?). When it comes to doing push ups, #1 I suck. #2 I hate doing them and #3 did I say I hate doing them yet? Seriously, I can’t stand doing push ups. My husband tries to coax me into doing them with him, but I quickly lose interest after the first sign of muscle ache. Yeah I’m a wimp. I have no shame. Yes, I can carry 100 bags of groceries through a gauntlet and into the house, but ask me to do a push up and I’ll likely whine like a baby.Well I’m gonna put my wimpiness and lazy vibe aside for the next 30 days and commit to tackling these push ups. I’m not crazy enough nor paid enough to do the Britney Spears or Beyonce workout routines, so I will be using a nice Pinterest Beginner’s Chart to complete my challenge.I would love it if some of you would do this challenge along with me. Plus there will be a Linkup!!! on the Fashionista Next Door Blog, Every Friday for everyone to share their progress. Not only could I use the accountability factor, but it just makes it more fun when you know there are other people out there whining about sore muscles and sharing your pain 😀 Come on….Don’t be a wuss.

I will be up to 30 full push ups by the end of the month, will start at 2 push-up and add 2 every time I workout. I have to watch my wrist so I don’t want to do them everyday. Starting tomorrow. #wowlinkup Reply Candice S. September 18, 2014 That is awesome! Totally understandable about your wrists. Make sure you embrace those rest days. Thanks for joining us! Reply Lara @ Uptite Mamas September 17, 2014 I was just saying today how much I hate pushups. And mainly because I can’t do them! I would take burpees any day. Way to get motivated and challenge yourself!! #wowlinkup Reply Kimberlee September 17, 2014 I hear you about push ups – I don’t like them all that much either but they are great for toning the arms and core. I have been doing a lot lately with some of my Shaun T, T-25 videos and also a lot of my Cathe Friedrich videos – she loves to do lots of push ups. Good luck with your challenge. Reply Yona Williams September 10, 2014 I really suck doing push-ups but I bet at the end of the challenge, your arms will look toned. Now if it was a crunch/sit up challenge, that’s something I could do. Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 I’m thinking of incorporating squats. I did a squat challenge last year and it was great. Reply Taralyn - Keep Moving Forward With Me September 10, 2014 I totally need to do this! Reply Maggie September 10, 2014 This sounds like a great challenge! Mind if I do a post about it on my blog? I’m currently doing a water challenge (I totally failed that challenge) so it might be a month or so lol. Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 I don’t mind at all. I wish I could say I invented this challenge but I didnt LOL. Hey, I would totally fail a water challenge too. I have to force myself to drink water. Now I’d take home the Gold if it was a tea drinking challenge. Reply Rosey September 10, 2014 I predict you’l be doing the Spears and/or Beyonce routines in no time. I know it’s not on your agenda but these things have a way of sneaking up on us. 😉 Reply Liz Mays September 10, 2014 I totally hate them too. However, I think I’ll try this because it only starts with 3 a day and I can handle that! Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 😀 Reply katrinagehman September 10, 2014 i can’t do the challenge yet due to health reasons, but as soon as i am back at 100% i ‘m so there Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 Get well soon Katrina! Reply Lexie Lane September 10, 2014 I seriously can’t even do one. So I’m bookmarking this so I can get to at least 10! lol! Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 LOL!!! I wish I could have recorded me trying to do my first 3 yesterday. It was soooo sad. My hubby just laughed at me so badly. It really was pitiful. Reply Teresa Mccluskey September 10, 2014 I am so joining you on this! I need to be more active! Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 WooHoo!! A new recruit. Reply Debbie Jean McMullen September 10, 2014 OK Im in! LOL But I definitely need to start with an easier version! Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 LOL!!! This IS the easy version 😀 And I thought I was bad 🙂 Reply Our Family World September 10, 2014 That is a great challenge. Thank you for motivating me Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 You are welcome! Now drop down and give me your first 3!! Reply Sojourner Walker (@sojossojourns) September 10, 2014 I’m going to make this happen! Thanks for sharing this. Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 Yes! Reply Ann B (@AnnBac9) September 10, 2014 I love this! I can not do it right now as I have a sore elbow but I am going to share with my daughter who loves working out. Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 Thanks Ann, sorry to hear about your elbow. Get well soon. Reply Masshole Mommy September 10, 2014 Getting into it slowly is definitely a goof way to start. Push ups are hard. Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 They are. Reply Eliz@MirthandMotivation September 10, 2014 I have a few friends who had tried the challenge and loved it. I’m not a big fan of push ups and so will pass on it. But I wish you much success… Go get ’em! Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 Thanks!! Reply marly_ms (@mgmhar) September 10, 2014 Well, honestly I can’t do push ups. I recently found a 3o-day challenge for crunches. 🙂Mhar Mg http://kutsownstyle.blogspot.com/ Reply Candice S. September 16, 2014 I think I’ll move on to crunches next, especially because this is my favorite season for EATING. Thanks for stopping by! Reply Gladys Parker September 9, 2014 It looks like an awesome challenge. While I couldn’t do one push up to save my life I am on a dieting challenge and I wish you much success! Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 Thanks Gladys! I think a dieting challenge would be torture for me…I’m such a foodie. Stay strong! Reply Jaime Nicole September 9, 2014 Whoooooo this is a great challenge! Can really build excellent upper body strength this way Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 You gonna do it Jaime? Reply Stefany September 9, 2014 I haven’t been able to do pushups for a few years due to arthritis. Good luck on your challenge though! I’ll be cheering you on! Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 Thanks for the support Stefany! Reply justamom8225 September 9, 2014 Push ups and I have never gotten along. Though I do love doing Planks. Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 Yeah planks aren’t that bad. I actually don’t mind doing those. Reply Kungphoo September 9, 2014 This looks like a good challenge for me to take part in.. Thanks for sharing it.. i need to get back on the training track Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 Alright!! Keep us posted on your progress. Reply Misty Battle September 9, 2014 Yeah I hate push ups. I have weak wrists from carpal tunnel so I can’t do them anymore. Reply Candice S. September 10, 2014 That’s ok…I still appreciate you stopping by and reading my post Misty. Reply mrenkema79 September 9, 2014 I did this back in January. I ended up REALLY good at pushups, then broke my wrist about a month later (and haven’t tried any since then…) Good luck! Reply Candice S. September 9, 2014 Awww Man I’m sorry about your wrist. I hope it wasn’t push up related. Reply hparentsxpress September 9, 2014 I might have to take this challenge with you, to make sure my arms are right for next summer. Which will be around the corner. Will you be my accountability partner? Reply Candice S. September 9, 2014 Absolutely! Oh and feel free to let me have it if I slack off 😀 Reply Candice S. September 18, 2014 How’s it going on those push ups? I’m actually shocking myself each day. I’m doing them! LOL. Now I’m up to 9 and they’re getting much easier to do. Days 1 and 2, I was a weakling, but I’m so much better now. ReplyGot something to say? Leave a comment Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
