Every weekday, I workout.
This time last year, I couldn't even do one sit up.
Now, I crush 200 sit ups every weekday (Monday through Friday) along with a 30 or 45 minute workout.
The funny thing is...that I didn't wake up one day and say to myself "Self...let's do 200 sit ups today."
However, I did wake up one day at the beginning of this year with a desire to look and feel better and get physically stronger.
You see...my husband, Ty, exercises consistently.
One day, I heard him watching a video (on YouTube) while working out.
I noticed the video had intense, more challenging exercises along with beginner modifications. Some workouts were short while others were longer.
I was intrigued and decided to try it.
And, I really liked it!
I started working out with my husband every weekday. We created a habit of exercising, encouraging each other, supporting one another and pushing ourselves when we didn't feel like it.
A few weeks after getting started, a video came on after one of our workouts showing a couple of guys doing 200 push ups at one time in less than 15 mins.
My husband said, "I can do that!"
I was so inspired by him (and not really thinking). I said, "I'll match your 200 push ups by doing 200 sit ups.
He said, "you're on!"
By the time my mind caught up with what I physically committed to do, I started to back peddle.
I went through all kinds of mental gymnastics such as the desire to back out even though there was a part of me that knew I could do it (I just didn't know how).
I noticed that I was getting caught up in "how am I going to do this?!"
I stopped myself (or I should say my inner guidance system gave me a gentle nudge) and I shifted into possibilities.
So...I broke this 200 sit up challenge down into parts.
I told Ty I would start off with 50 sit ups a day for 1 week, then, 100 the next week, 150 the following week until I was up to 200 a day within one month.
This happened back in March of this year.
And, I'm still doing 200 sit ups + more intensive and challenging workouts.
As we are winding down 2021...to finish strong...
