Week 1-Check in

SOOOO Week 1, was not what I expected or what I would have liked.  Here's the good, the bad and the ugly.

Good-I am up to 4 push-ups (started at 2, so progress).

Bad- I only did the challenge 2 days out of 7 last week.  I am lacking some serious motivation and have been dealing with some "new" headaches (that's part of the ugly).

Ugly-My form is something to be desired, and I could probably do more push-ups if I wasn't so intent on doing them right :)  I have been dealing with a "new" type of headache.  I should say that I have daily headaches and migraines several times a month (I have for years) and I can deal with those.  These "new" ones are kicking my rear, I spent more than 48 hours in bed and the rest of the time wishing I was.  Trying to figure out where they are coming from, and the only thing that I can think of is that I have been exercising more. HA, isn't exercise supposed to be good for you?

That leads me to Week 2.  I keep going back and forth between starting week 2 and redoing week 1.  Well since, I am starting tonight I better decide.


  1. Keep going on the push-ups, girlie!!

    So, I'm not a dietitian or anything, but have you tried cutting out sugar or grains to see if it changes anything?

    I did a Whole30 challenge (EXTREMELY restrictive 30day program, which I HIGHLY recommend lol), but I notice now when I eat sugar or grains, I get super sleepy or get headaches.. it's nice to be able to pinpoint your triggers though.

    1. I have decreased my sugar intake significantly. I have been researching the Whole30, it scares the me :) I don't know that I could be that strict.
