I was knee- deep in other activities tonight and didn’t have time for the treadmill. (Darn it!) However, there were twenty Trunk Rotations, then one hundred Quarter Crunches. I almost forgot but completed fifty Twisting Crunches (milestone!), then from the Halasana yoga pose into twenty modified Jack Knife exercises. There was some mild experimentation with a pair of 3lb hand-weights but it was pretty useless and I won’t bore you with details. Finally, there were six consecutive GI Jane push-ups without bars. Shocking, I know. The bars make even push-ups more difficult; but, I didn’t use them simply because there were in a different part of the house. I’ll keep using them because that’s the benchmark, but it felt good to do six in a row. Some people want to get fit to get skinny, but I want to get fit to get strong. No retreat, no surrender and no excuses!
