I can’t get it up.

Confession: I can’t get it up.

I know confessions are a popular thing to do on blogs these days so I thought I’d share my shame with you.  I like to think I’m a reasonably fit person.  I eat pretty well (usually) and I get a decent amount of physical activity each week (usually) but my shame comes from the fact that I can not now, or really ever could, do a push up.  NOT ONE PUSH UP.  So people say, “Oh well, just do a ‘girl’ push up” – no, not me.  NOT ONE DECENT GIRL PUSH UP.

 I do this.

This is me.


So are there worse problems to have?  Yeah.  Would I still like to be able to do 15 decent regular push ups?

Yeah. So I’m going to work on it.

Is there a fitness challangej you've been struggling with your whole life?
