Don’t have time for the gym today.. take this pushup challenge!


First off, happy Friday!

My morning started with a cafe mocha homemade style! Since I’m pregnant I limit my caffeine and I have 1/2 coffee & 1/2 milk and a couple teaspoons of chocolate Ovaltine (which has no artificial sweeteners). It is delicious.

My breakfast this week has been lacking variety because I am having some food aversions again.. so for me it is key to eat the stuff I like… it might sound plain but it hits the spot, 2 eggs and toast! With a side of pineapple.

I headed to the gym this morning to train my clients, and I was definitely feeling a little sluggish/tired, but as soon as I start training my energy increases. It is so fun to push my clients to their limits and get them the best workout they can for the day.

Now on to the workout challenge for today!

Some days it is just not possible to get to the gym or to get outside and go for a run or walk.. so lets take a different approach.


The workout is SIMPLE the exercise= PUSHUPS, the workout= perform AS MANY REPS AS POSSIBLE throughout your entire day.

Whenever you can, drop and do 10 pushups. They can be knee or full body. Keep track of how many sets you complete and tally it up at the end of your day. Let’s see who can perform the most pushups in 1 day!

TIPS: perform a set of pushups before lunch and after lunch. Do a set as soon as you get home from work. A set before you shower, before you eat dinner, after dinner, challenge a friend at a party, do a few sets before bed. If you are starting this challenge tomorrow. Make sure to start your morning with a quick couple sets!

And here’s a little Friday belly shot for you… 25 days left!!


if you participate in the challenge leave a comment on this post and let me know how many pushups you complete!

  1. It’s awful having food aversions all over again. Mine haven’t been too bad, but if I’m unexcited to eat avocado then I know something is up!

  2. Kelly, I took you up on the push-up challange and used your advice about when to squeeze in an extra set or 2 throughout the day. By the end of the day I got to 275. I’m going to try and do this at least 1 day a week and see if I can match or pass my #’s.
