|vanilla cake, lime coconut frosting vegan birthday cupcakes|
I am not sure why, but I seem to always be SUPER emotional and goal oriented around my birthday.
I had set a goal for myself last year and when I didn't met it I was disappointed
but kept moving towards it.
It is something I have wanted to be able to do for longer than I can remember...
It represents a symbol of strength to me...
It is pretty badass
It is something most people can do with almost no effort
What is it?
I have never been able to do one
I want to be able to do one, and not a "girl" push-up
but a kick-ass real deal push-up
I have been working on it for a LONG time...
and I am proud to report I did it in front of The Barren on the eve of my
48th birthday, Tuesday night.
The Barren cried he was so happy for me (heart swelling)
I am also of the camp that if it is not documented it didn't really happen
and being a visual person, I needed to photograph it
so I did:
Elbows in against my ribs
down to a 90* bend
ass up, knees off the floor
legitimate push-up folks!
