One Hundred Push-Ups: Week 2

I've made it past Week 1 of the "One Hundred Push-Ups" program and now I'm on day one of Week 2. I'm continuing to be very proud of myself for sticking to this program. In this first day of Week 2, I did less total push-ups than the last day of Week 1, but I had less time in between each set. So it definitely was a challenge to get through all of them, but I did it. And I did an extra 5 at the end too.

I'm beginning to see even more results in my chest. It's definitely more defined than it was two weeks ago and I'm very happy. Now I need to head to the gym more often and work on the arms, shoulders, and back too. I mean, it'll definitely help keep my mind off of J! Two birds with one stone. lol. Maybe when I see even more results, I'll post some before and after photos. It'll be good for myself to track my progress.

I'm also thinking about picking up some sort of outdoor hobby. Trying to decide what I want to do... but I need one because I'm sitting at home doing nothing during the day and that's not good! Any suggestions?

Good for you, exercise/hobbies are a great way to get your mind off things.

I personally love going hiking up a big hill. It's exhilarating (as a hobby).

Kite flying! Just kidding.

I <3 hiking too! :D I love things that exhaust me, because then I just go to sleep and forget everything. And when things exhaust me, it's usually because I put so much effort and energy into doing it that I forget about everything else. Which is good. And when you're tired, just go to sleep! :D I <3 naps, too.

Out of curiosity, what parts of the body do push-ups work out anyway? Are they better than lifting weights (i.e. benching)? I know so little about working out. o.O
