My name is Steph…I run this here blog…and every once in a while I attempt to actually post something. So here we go for another exciting installment of random ramblings by me.
First…an update on the 100 pushups challenge. I am not going to lie…it is hard. Actually I think the first week was extra hard for me b/c I failed to completely read the directions about how much time to rest between sets. yep by the third day I was supposed to wait 2 mins between sets…I only waited 1…and my arms were not happy with me. But alas I made it and I am now trudging through my 3rd week (week 5 of the program). So far so good! If I make it through this week I will move onto the 6th and final week of this thing…and become superwoman.
ok so maybe my arms look nothing like Ali Vincent’s…but at least I feel stronger. Oh and I feel pretty bad ass at the gym… that is until I jump on the treadmill and blow my nose into my shirt. I can’t help it…it’s like someone turns the faucet on my nose as soon as I start running! Yes in case you were wondering I STILL RUN…just not doing any race training at the moment. The ‘Dreadmill’ and I aren’t exactly BFFs so I try not to talk about it much.
Let’s see what else….oh yes….the wedding. Stuff is happening folks. This wedding is creeping up fast…and I feel like I’ve got a mountain of stuff to get accomplished! Where did the time go?! I noticed today that people are booking their rooms! Nuts right?! I mean in a good way….that means people are actually planning on coming. Although I’m suddenly panicking that I didn’t block enough rooms.
In a little less than a month I head back to Nebraska to do a plethora of wedding related things. The biggest being my shower! I’m really excited for it and can’t wait to see everyone! I’m also meeting with our florist on Valentine’s day…how appropriate right? So I need to get to work digging through all my saved images and put together some type of collage of inspiration pics. I’m also planning to meet with our pastor and go over some ceremony stuff…which I have yet to figure out. See what I mean…a MOUNTAIN of things to do!
Oh and wanna know what else I’ve been working on putting together this past week along with 10 of my girlfriends?? Why a bachelorette trip to VEGAS of course!
it is going to be pretty awesome…and the perfect last hur-rah with some of my favorite girls before married life (which will be equally as awesome!).
So yeah…that about gets you up to speed. As you can see I am a busy bee…but I will try my best to post updates when I can!!

…push-ups that is.
I usually don’t make “resolutions” for New Years…but I always at least aim to do something better or try something new with each new year. So now that it is 2010…(and the year of the wedding…finally!) I figured what better time to start the 100 push-up challenge than right now!
I’ve been thinking about doing it for oh like a year now but just never actually started it. So here I go blogworld…let the pushing-up begin!
I did the initial test on Saturday and managed to squeak out 40 consecutively (woot woot!)…which actually means I’ll start the challenge at week three. Ok so maybe I should admit that push-ups have been a regular part of my workout for the past 6 months or so…pretty sure when I first started I could barely do 10….just goes to show that the more you do something the stronger you get and the better you become (just like running!).
I’ll do my best to post updates on how I do…and let ya know when I complete the 100! Operation Bridal Arms begins!!
