Ha, ha! I *know* I can but the form is terrible! I'll give it a go tomorrow (I've just done today's 44 push ups so it's not happening now!)

 

YAY! Go for it!! Let us know how you get on :courage:

Sorry got distracted by doing stuff IRL.

Missing updates (as far as I can remember, I've been pretty well-behaved...)

1) complete 4 sets of wall push ups every other day ✔︎ rest day

2) eat at least 5 different fruit/veg at least 5 days each week (✔︎ spinach, mushrooms, stewed fruit - cherry, raspberry, blueberry, carrot, onion, cabbage, cauliflower)

3) drink a glass of water before every evening meal ✔︎

4) meditate 5 minutes each day ✔︎ 

 

Day 25

1) complete 4 sets of wall push ups every other day ✔︎ well, during one of the kettlebell class circuits I did 2 sets of kettlebell press ups (where you do a press up and then balance on one arm while you life up the kettlebell) and I used the full on normal press up shape. Knees nowhere near the floor :-) YAY!

2) eat at least 5 different fruit/veg at least 5 days each week (✔︎ onion, peas, french beans, spinach, stewed fruit - cherry, raspberry, blueberry)

3) drink a glass of water before every evening meal ✔︎

4) meditate 5 minutes each day ✔︎ 

 

Day 26

1) complete 4 sets of wall push ups every other day ✔︎ rest day and I need it :-) Doing loads of push ups while also doing loads of DIY/painting is not great planning.

2) eat at least 5 different fruit/veg at least 5 days each week (✔︎ clementine, onion, peas, french beans, spinach)

3) drink a glass of water before every evening meal ✔︎

4) meditate 5 minutes each day ✔︎ 


Note to me: I need to update daily or I forget. Which is daft because I usually eat the same main meals for at least 2 days as I always cook too much!

That's the best reason for not updating ;)

Final reflections:

1) push ups: this worked well and I'm now tackling full on push ups in my kettlebells class. As well as Upsie-downsies. Ugh - my least favourite exercise!

2) eat at least 5 different fruit/veg at least 5 days each week: yes, this wasn't too much of a stretch. I only struggled on a couple of days in total and blew it once. I'll have to ramp this up a bit next time. Maybe focus on not eating the biscuits between fruit.

3) drink a glass of water before every evening meal. Loved this one - just need a better memory for it. 

4) meditate 5 minutes each day. Totally loved this one. Will continue this one - I already miss it if I don't do it.

 

Overall, I'm a fairly self-motivated person so was skeptical about the benefits of 'sharing'. But having folks online watching out for me has definitely helped. It feels more accountable. And I've got through the month consistently sticking to the challenge rather than tailing off after a few days.

 

I'll think about the next challenge. How to make it harder but achievable. And seen as no-one else is nerdy enough to play golf (seriously - zero search results - I thought it was *the* nerdiest sport!), I'll probably stick to the rebels just now. Otherwise, my interests are in strength training (I'm new to this), yoga, meditation, a bit of mainly indoor cycling, indoor rowing, and hopefully wild swimming from the spring and a bit more hiking.

 

Onwards and upwards everyone :-)
