Progress...

I've made a TON of progress since Day 1 of my challenge. It's amazing how much of an impact setting a goal can have upon motivation and success.

Day 1 of the challenge I could barely do 1 full ROM push-up, couldn't get my chin above the bar on a jumping pull-up and had to scale everything to "Buttercups".

As of day 90, I can't now do multiple full ROM push-ups (more than 20 in every one of my warm-ups), almost 1 full ROM pull-up, scale everything to "Puppies" and even some to "Pack". I feel stronger, feel tougher mentally and while the work-outs still scare the begeezus out of me, I am not so intimated that I automatically think, "I can't do that".

As an added benefit, I've also lost 6lbs. and about 1.5 inches off my hips, waist, and thighs.

I'm really excited to see how much more I can improve!
