"What were you doing?" asked the husband with alarm. No, not a clock.
Though, I did ask him to time me for a minute.
He saw me get down on the floor, but didn't notice what I was doing. He kept tippity tapping away on his computer, after he said, "Go" and then 60 seconds later, "Stop."
I did 48 stomach crunches. I was soooo impressed with myself since I hadn't done sit-ups in several months.
But I didn't think the crunches would cramp me up when I sat down in front of the computer.
"You silly woman," said the husband. See. That's the kind of sympathy I get after 13 years of marriage.
Why was I doing the crunches? It was a test to find out where to start my 200 sit-ups training program.
Yep, another challenge. And, yep, you heard me right. 200 sit-ups. The goal is to be able to do 200 sit-ups, one after the other, in 6 weeks or more. You only need to crunch up to a 35-degree angle. Mine were more like a 13-degree angle. Ideally, I'll be up at the 35-degree angle six weeks from now, but if I come up at least 19.781 degrees, I'll be content.
I start my training tomorrow. Listening to Santana has revved me up!
