push-up to the new year

As far as New Year’s resolutions go, I continually strive to be kinder, eat healthier, and write more consistently. A new year always provides a fresh start, which is nice, but I try to stay away from naming the above three topics as the thing I’m going to focus on.

Instead, I have a somewhat fun, but challenging goal ahead.

I am going to perfect the push-up.

This means, I will be adding one push-up to my line-up every day of the year. I started on the first with one, then did two today, tomorrow will be three, and by December 31, 2018, I’ll do 365 push-ups in one day.

Now I’m not crazy and think I could do all of them at once, at least I don’t think it’s possible. But I’m hoping that by the end of the year I’ll be able to do quite a bit at once and break up the rest.

As of December 31 of this year, I did 20 push-ups in a row without feeling too fatigued.

Let’s see what the year brings.

What are your fun or otherwise resolutions?
