March Madness Terrell Style-Update #1

Well it’s a little over half way through our March Madness Terrell Style challenge, and I’m sure you are all dying to know how we’re doing!

Well here it is straight folks. We made a couple of modifications, and got a little confused on the numbers a couple of times, and we skipped one day because we didn’t remember until midnight and were just too tired, but we are still going strong! I figured there are 31 days in March and technically it’s a 30 day challenge so we’re still good.

To recap, we started a 30 day push-up and sit-up challenge March 1st. Really I’m the one who wanted to do it to help kick myself in gear, and my husband lovingly agreed to do it with me to help me with accountability. I also am trying to drink 8-8oz glasses of water every day.

Here’s where we modified a little. I started out doing guy push-ups because my personal goal is to be able to do full on guy push-ups. I’ve switched to doing a combination of guy and girl push-ups. Basically I do guy push-ups until I can’t do any more and then I switch to girl ones. I get a sharp stabbing pain in my right rib cage after a few guy push-ups, so I’m hoping by just doing any kind of push-ups it will strengthen my upper body and eventually alleviate that.

As far as the sit-ups go, we’ve switched to crunches. To be fair, this is what my husband wanted to do from the start, and is actually what is on the chart. I wanted to do full on sit-ups because I’m crazy like that. We’ll save that for another time, when we’ve been doing this for a while and aren’t starting from ground zero!

And as far as the water drinking goes, I think I’ve been doing pretty good. I’ve been a little lazy the last few days keeping track, and yesterday was a big dud in the water drinking department, but for the most part I’ve done pretty good!

And there you have it folks. We have 11 days left in our March Madness challenge, and I think we are going to end strong!

How are you doing? What did you challenge yourself to do this month?
