in which my pursuit of physical fitness is starting to get hard

100 pushups. Week 3, day 1, column 3 (don't be impressed. Remember, I'm doing wall pushups.)

For the first time, I wasn't sure if I could actually physically do the work out. I barely made it (and that was with gritted teeth), even with extended rest sessions between reps. And, boy, do I feel it. 

However, it might just be wishful thinking, triceps do feel firmer. And I know I've made progress. I think I've done more pushups in the past two weeks than I have in my entire life up until this point.

your triceps are one of the quickest to show results from working out. My old trainer said that is one area that she likes to work out first for clients because they get to see results fast, making it inspiring! So it's not all in your head! I have to start my 100 from the beginning today, arg. Congrats on your progress!
