Europe and Pushups!

Hello fellow YFS’rs! I’m back from vacation and let me tell you it was amazing!  I’m typically a beach, island, hot weather, tons of sun type of person.  But, this year we decided to vacation a bit differently.

My wife, since I’ve known her, has wanted to visit Paris.  Well, we decided to do a bit more than Paris.  

We’ve visited the following locations:


I thankful that I was able to accompany her on her dream of visiting Paris and beyond.  Each location, was very unique and I learned a lot about myself, my wife and more importantly their culture and intricacies.

In the next few weeks my blogging will reflect what I learned in Europe…  

Au revoir! Until the next blog post!  

Oh.. before I forget.  We are up to week 3 (video 3) of the 100 pushup challenge!  

Here is my 3rd video!





  • Sounds boring. 🙂

    I can take you on the 100. Did you see my Insanity body?

  • I think a friend of mine is trying to get me to join the 200 Squat Challenge. Barely a year ago, I pushed myself to do 300 squats. It's weird, but my back hurt more than my buns. I couldn't even walk, I shuffled. I'll pass on the 100 push up challenge. I'm a girl. I can do 100 push ups over the course of a work out, but there's no need to hammer out 100 of them suckers in a row. I probably can squeeeeze out 25 without stopping if I really tried.

    I'm going to check out your blog for the insanity progress. Last time I checked you looked ripped and suddenly got a tan!

    300 squats! Woah.. Impressive! What did you do to train up for that.

  • I’m going to go eat a doughnut and watch your video.

    Wasn’t Paris awesome? We had a great experience there….much different than I’d been told we’d have. People were far more pleasant than I expected them to be…which taught me something about how to act and who I am as a person.

    Woe! That must have been such a gorgeous experience! I’ve been in Amsterdam for a month a couple of years ago and I had such a great time! I’m looking forward to your post about your big journey, I’m sure you are full of great experiences!

  • I just exercise. My regular workouts include a lot of squats so my muscles didn’t fail me when I went for 300. By the way, they weren’t consecutive. I felt like it was more of a mental challenge than a physical one. But I get a lot of my workouts from The site is pretty amazing.

    Sounds like you are having fun and I really appreciate you that you supported your wife to her dream and you did it more than that. By the way, I enjoy watching you in the video doing push ups. It’s incredible. Thanks!

    Paris was quite different than what people specified it would be. People would say that the people were rude.. I didn’t find that to be true at all.. the people were nice! The food on the other hand was a bit dicey.. until we found some not touristy areas.

    Thank you! When married or in a relationship, I learned that it’s not always about me. I felt better seeing her smile than being selfish and insisting we go on a tropical vacation. Thanks for the confidence boost for my next pushup video 🙂

    I agree with you.. the workouts are definitely mental. When I lost count for my pushups, I thought I was at 85 for some reason, so I keep pushing and pushing until I collapsed. I don’t think I would have completed 94 pushups if I kept count. Mind over matter I guess..

    I had a great time! Some I can talk about and some I can’t lol. I have a few blog posts coming in the future talking about them.

  • Not even sure where to start with this comment!!

    First, this sounds like an incredible itinerary…

    Second, 100 pushup Challenge: DaaaaAAAaaaamn! You’ve just inspired me to get me arse back in gear. 🙂

  • URFinanceSimple /

    Woot.. I’m glad my post inspired you to work it out! Take it slow in the beginning don’t hurt yourself.

    That's a pretty hectic schedule for two weeks, YFS.
    I must say, your video prompted me to take the challenge. I regularly do 40-pushup sets, so no problem, one hundred seems within range. Not so, not so. I wussed out in the mid-sixties, and my right arm and chest are still cramping up and sore. Gotta work it up slowly, I guess.

  • Europe and Pushups!…

    Hello fellow YFS’rs! I’m back from vacation and let me tell you it was amazing!  I’m typically a beach, island, hot weather, tons of sun type of person….

  • Man… Now I feel pretty lame giving up after about 15-20 push-ups.

    Gotta start somewhere 🙂
