999...1000...1001!



I made it to my goal of 1,001 pushups in February around 9pm on February 29. I did the last 10 pushups with Ceri. In February, I did between 20 and 40 "real" pushups every single day, even after I was in a minor car accident and had mild whiplash.

I did my first set of 10 "real" (not on my knees) pushups in recent memory in December or January. It was pretty tough at first but got easier quickly. I don't go far enough to have my chin touch the floor but that's something I'll continue to work on. I'm doing zero pushups for a few days to allow my muscles to rebuild themselves. Then I'll concentrate on quality rather than quantity during March. I can feel some new muscle tone in my arms but most importantly, I just feel more confident about my fitness level.

On another topic, shown above is our second meal of chickpea cutlets, with tomato sauce, parmesan, and basil on top. The yummy fried things are the best onion rings in the world. HS and I are seriously contemplating buying a Fry Daddy to try to replicate them--but that way lies madness (and sweatpants). The cutlets are flanked by two interesting salts we picked up. One is smoked and the other contains rosemary, sage, garlic, and pepper (can't find a web page for them but the brand name is Feast).

(Pushups completed: 1,001!)

Yay! Good for you! I've probably already said this, but I'm mad-impressed that you can do the real push-ups. And so many at a time! I'm doing better with mine though, and I can tell a difference in the way my arms look in the past few months that I've been making an increased effort with my strength-training.

Congrats on the push-ups! I am really impressed, I can only do the knee versions.

Wow, congratulations on the pushups. 1001 in 29 days is super impressive!

you rock, amy! i've been inspired to do pushups every night. the hard part is trying to get my hubby to do them with me. a set of 10 good ones is about my limit thus far.

Wow, I am super-impressed! You must be really fit after doing all those push ups!

Looks like a terrific celebration meal too :o).
