Pushups On The BeachThird progress test completed – 60 total – coming along quite nicely. Although I was a little disappointed overall, I was hoping to be further along – then again the first advancements are easy, and this last week was true sregnth building.

I missed last Friday because I had to leave for work very early in the morning, so my Friday routine was pushed to Saturday, and therefor I rested a full day and did the progress test today. So at this rate, I should finish week 6 by Sunday-ish, and be ready for my final progress test around Wednesday. That is, if I can make it throught the final week. Day one is 45-55-35-30-55+ Yikes!

Oh but have I mentioned how much I love this routine — hundredpushups.com

Pushups On The BeachSecond progress test completed – 50 total – half way to the goal. We were out of the house this weekend, so I being outside of the regular routine can have an effect on exercise, but I pushed myself to get up early enough to get the progress test in. I was really satisified with how the whole test felt. The first 30 breazed by, and the last 10 was challenging. 50 was my goal, I might have been able to squeeze another 2 or 3 out… maybe…

We’ll see you Monday after day 10!

 

Push Ups – Day 9 June 5, 2009

Pushups On The BeachFelt great this morning. Yet we were up late again last night, still working on Mathias’ room make-over. On thing that, the only thing that  seems to be affecting me a bit is the sinus problem, which has blocked most of my nose breathing. So, it’s just mouth breathing for now, which doesn’t feel quite right, comfortable, or just plain enough oxygen. hmmm

Today I totaled: 155 push ups; with a max of: 35 – view the log here: link

 

Room Makeover!

Filed under: Everything — Jason Olson @ 5:53 am

Mathias’ room makeover progress, while he’s been out with my parents for the week. I cannot wait for him to get home. We miss him!

As part of his room make over we created these two elements out of Masonite:

plane

This is done in two layers of masonite and hand painted by Jaimie! This was inspired by the first Mickey Mouse cartoon drawn by Ub Iwerks, Plane Crazy. (But as most people know, Steamboat Willy was the first cartoon shown in theatres, Plane Crazy was second)…

steamboat

This is done in three layers of masonite and hand painted by Jaimie! This was inspired by the second Mickey Mouse cartoon drawn by Ub Iwerks, Steamboat Willy. (But as most people know, Steamboat Willy was the first cartoon shown in theatres, but Plane Crazy was the first to be drawn)…All under the cover of darkness and secrecy, that only Ub and Walt knew about. All while Owsald the Lucky Rabbit was being stolen (legally?!) out from underneath Disney.

 

Push Ups – Day 8 June 3, 2009

Pushups On The BeachFeeling stronger today – got up a bit earlier and ready for the day. Yet we were up late last night, still working on Mathias’ room make-over. Last night we got the waves painted, and the plane crazy mickey cut out of masonite, after Jaimie drew it using chalk. It also got a coat of primer before primary painting begins today. But I digress – I was up until just after midnight, so I got a little less sleep than usual.

On thing that does seem to be affecting me a bit is the sinus problem, which has blocked most of my nose breathing. So, it’s just mouth breathing for now, which doesn’t feel quite right, comfortable, or just plain enough oxygen. hmmm

Today I totaled: 144 push ups; with a max of: 40

Woo hoo – I hit the 40 max goal!!! View the log here: link

Pushups On The BeachWhew! That was a hard one, and I didn’t increase my total, but the max went up to 35. I think I woke up a little late and was out of energy from an early dinner last night. (Not to mention we walked all around Discovery Kingdom yesterday). I’m happy with the overall progress and expect better results on Wednesday after I’m back into my weekly routine.

Today I totalled: 121 pushups; with a max of: 35

Still looking for at least 38 this week max, perhaps 40!
