My whole body is sore!

Just call me the Pushup Queen!

I guess I must be doing something right! I'm a little sore today in my hips, butt, and chest. I did my pushups for my other challenge last night. I did 65. They have this great progression chart, so I know how many to do for each workout day (3 times week), to work myself up to 100. I am doing these on my knees and in sets. So last night I did 3 sets of 15 and 2 sets of 10 w/30 seconds rest in between sets.

I stepped myself up a bit on the FYM plan. I am doing the intermediate workouts. I also need to up my weight on the chest presses and probably the squats too.
My workout
Intermediate A
DB Squats 3 sets of 12 w/ 10 lbs in ea. hand
STab Ball Chest Press 3 sets of 12 w/ 15lbs in ea hand

SB Leg curls
Bow (deadlifts)

Side Plank w/leg lift Hold for 30 seconds ea side--3 sets
Mtn Climbers 3 sets of 10

Mountain Climbers are killers! I think that's why my butt hurts! Its the part right below the cheek where the butt meets your leg. Right where women need it most.

I've had 3 full days of eating right behind me. Here's what I had for today:

Protein powder- 1 scp
1 c yogurt-- I was supposed to have oatmeal according to my meal plan, but I didn't check it first. DUH...
1 c blueberries

8 triscuits
1 stick of string cheese
1 c grapes

small baked potato
1/2 c cottage cheese

1 med apple
2 tbsp peanut butter

1 c broccoli
2 c mixed greens
3 oz chicken breast

Hi Shari-such a cute picture! Ok, you finally convinced me to check out the push-up page...and it looks pretty neat. I haven't done my official starting test...but I am interested in staring after I get back from vacation...I am pretty sure I can only do 65 sounds incredible.
