Hit the ground and give me 22 ! Day 1

Real Estate Agent with DWELL REAL ESTATE BK3105105

push upNow that I have successfully completed my 22 day push-up challenge, I would like to share my accomplishment with you, one day at a time.

The rules were simple:
. Once nominated my 22 days started the following day
. Every day I recorded myself doing 22 push ups which started out very slowly and got easier as the days went by
. Every day I had to nominate a new person to attempt the challenge

 This was an easy way to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware of. Military men and women put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms only to get out of the service and feel lost. It is sad that 22 veterans a day feel that suicide is their only way out. If you know a veteran who is struggling, or you know someone who is struggling, call 1-800-273-8255 for help

So, for a good laugh while becoming aware of a very serious issue,  Click here and if you would like for me to nominate you, just let me know.

William, of the 22 I tortured by nominating, only three made it to the end.  And I was one of only 2 of the 22 nominated with me that completed the challenge.  There were some days when I just did not think I would find the time or place to get them done but I am glad that I did!

I had such fun doing it that I am going to continue to share it just so people on Active Rain can have a good laugh.  Let me know if you schedule any meet-ups.  Would love to see you.

I know I can not do any push ups. I have very bad knee issues and can't kneel at all. I am quite limber and can do stretches and other exercises but nothing on the floor.
