I know I said I would have my "Life of an Editor" post up today, but I HAVE to tell you guys something amazing that happened to me last night! (This is why I don't like to plan out my posts. It always gets messed up anyway.)
Earlier this year, I posted a goal of mine that has been on my 30 by 30 list: to be able to do 3 unassisted pull-ups. That was March 31, and since then I have been working on my arm strength. I bought a pull-up bar for over the door, I bought body bands to help with assisted pull-ups (thanks, Beka, for the idea!), and I have been practicing pull-ups almost every single day since the end of March.
I've gotten so frustrated because I haven't seen any progress. I've even pulled down the bar off the door a few times and pouted while bemoaning my wimpy arms. But I have been getting closer and closer, and...
Last night I finally did THREE IN A ROW!
I thought maybe last night would be The Night, so I had Jordan film it for me. Check me out! Almost exactly 6 months to the day.
I am pumped. PUMPED. Shout-out to Jordan for all the encouragement. I really couldn't have done it without him.
If you work hard at it, you can do it. That's a fact. Amen.
*Back to regular programming tomorrow with my Life of an Editor post. Thanks for indulging me.
