I had a sneaking suspicion this would be true...

Today is day 1 of the 20 pull-up challenge.  First step is obviously assessing how many pull-ups you can do.  I haven't even attempted a pull-up since middle school, and I couldn't do any then, so I figured I'd still be at zero.  I was absolutely correct.  That puts me in the elite group who gets to start at week -2 as opposed to week 1!  Anyways, week -2 basically just has you start by working on negative pull-ups (just the way down part).  There was a bunch of beefy looking guys around the pull-ups bars at the gym, so I wussed out and used the machine.  I only set it on 20 lbs to start practicing the negatives.  It was really difficult but I'm determined to continue.  I just keep visualizing myself putting the beefy men to shame.

Before that I had spin and abs.  Today at work was absolutely horrible, I missed the beginning of spin class and I was in an all around bad mood.  However, my teacher was spouting some very yogi words of wisdom.  She told us to focus on what we are doing now, not what happened today or what we're doing after.  The only way to improve is to focus on what you're doing.  I don't know if somehow she knew where my head was or I'm just that spacey I only listen to my instructors when they say things that apply to me.  Either way, it was a great workout today and put a slightly better note on a crappy day.
