My Struggle with Pull Ups :-/
So! That pull up challenge. Eek. If there’s anything I hate more than burpees it’s pull ups.
I struggle with them so much!!!!
Remember when I first declared this “I wanna do 5 pullups” in 3 months idea? That was back around Thanksgiving and now it’s been about 2 months. My progress so far?
I am not as far along as I had hoped but I still have another month to go. It’s so tough for me to go above the bar without any assistance after the first one. My upper body has never been that insanely strong but I am working on it every week. To tell you the truth, I do not know how close I will get to completing 5 full pullups by myself in another month. I said I wanted to complete a specific goal by a specific date and if I don’t…most would consider it a “failure”.
But you know what? Not me. And you shouldn’t either if you miss your mark a bit.
You see, even if you said you wanted to run a 10k without stopping but during your race you thought your lungs might explode so you had to stop, do not be disappointed in yourself! Take a break and keep going. Like I say always – it’s about resilience. Pick yourself back up and carry on. Also, another important thing to keep in mind is that all the hard work you put towards trying to reach your goal is with you forever. No one can take that away from you!! Look, I don’t know if I can hit 5 full pullups in 1 more month but just by working towards it, my back is stronger and I feel a sense of empowerment by completing one. Besides…if you reached your goal too quickly, maybe it wasn’t aspirational enough to begin with right!?
So please watch the vid and see my struggle. I know that’s what you want – hahahaha. Also, listen to my analogy of how homework and life are not the same. Trust me…I have a point here…
And don’t forget to click on the video, head over to YouTube and like and comment on the vid to win $200 CASH and a box full of Premier Protein yumminess! This is the final time I will pick 3 lucky POPsters to win the Energy for Everyday giveaway. So go crazy. You can comment as much as you want!!
