Blood sugar 98 mg/dL

25 pushups (2019 PUSH UP Challenge!)

Increasing my pushups by one a day is starting to be a real challenge. I think I will be able to do about 30 pushups, but it will be REALLY hard to do more than that without stopping.

Normally I would be on a 'no solid food' fast today, but my Mother and I plan to make macaroni and cheese casserole today (recipie). This *requires* taste testing and when I do a 'no solid food' fast I *make no exceptions*. So, If I eat *any* solid food, it is *not* the 'fast'.

I plan to hit the gym today so that I can skip tomorrow, yet still get in my 3 weight lifting sessions a week. Yesterday I was able to easily maintain my 200lbs lifts.

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!
174.0 lb Lost so far: 33.0 lb.    Still to go: 10.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

@Sweetlysad - Thank You! Wishing you and your family the best!

add 5 pounds if you are eating that macaroni and cheese might as well take advantage of the extra carbs!

@Baskington - Haha! The only ting that sucks is that I could not get the timing right to do the workout *after* the macaroni and cheese :)

Sounds like a fun afternoon cooking with your mom and mac and cheese is so delicious! Good luck with the push ups and way to go with those weights!

The glycogen loading is a day before thing... You're fine! You've got a 24-hour window, so Friday you'll rock it!

I am sure you will soon be at 30 pushups and beyond. Thanks for sharing your story with us. It is inspiring ☺

Thanks everyone! I got the workout in (200lbs lifts still locked in) and made the macaroni and cheese. I'm already on a 155 carb binge. Seriously thinking about hitting the gym tomorrow AND a run before Thanksgiving dinner...

Check your gym's holiday hours. Mine is only open from 8-noon. 
21 Nov 18 by member: chrisw77
@Chrisw77 - Thanks! I just checked, also 8:00AM to 12:00PM. I'm going. Gonna get there at 8:00am.

do you not get keys when you get a membership Tina gym? 24 hour access is standard in Aus. 30 pushups is a great start but you can aim alot higher in think mate

@keith george cooke - My gym is almost 30,000 square feet. I would not want *any* responsibility by having a key :) :) I agree 30 pushups is not enough, and before the "Challenge" is complete I will have to almost double that! :)

That's a strange concept to me lol. Not having 24/7 access. In Aus every member at every gym gets a key. 
21 Nov 18 by member: keith george cooke
I can travel 3000km across Australia and my key will get me into a anytime fitness,zap or GoodLife gym at 3am if I want hahahaha. Guess I took that for granted. It's a great business model you should start a 24/7 gym franchise in Dixie land, you would have a tonne of $$$ lol

We have 24 hour gyms here. They're just always staffed, so no need for a key. American gym chains are huge though - typically about 20 treadmills, ellipticals, plus even more cycles, basketball court, pool, sauna, racketball courts, multiple "open floor" workout room for aerobics classes, zumba, etc.... and all the Nautilus machines and barbell+dumbbell stations you can imagine! Some have juice bars and daycare as well.

We tend to pay a bit more here too. I had a membership at a basic weight room awhile back for $10 a month before it closed. They're hard to find these days though.  
21 Nov 18 by member: chrisw77
My dearest gym is $60 a week my others are 2 @ $15 and 1 @ 10 it's easy to remember as I have to budget $100 for them hahahaha. IV seen pics of American gyms they are onboard size wise with some of our franchise gyms like GoodLife.

I just re read your post lol... my gyms cost $400 a month I'll trade bills with you bro 👍
