  • One week down. Many more to go! It's pretty nice here. I go to class. I eat all I want and I workout all I want. I'm not complaining Except on weekends I feel trapped and want to leave and get some better food and explore haha.

    If anyone has questions feel free to contact me. The process was definitely one of patience but every step you can control.

    I failed The Spanish test so I'll be here an extra six weeks. Hopefully get to see most of you here! Still haven't met Future though!

It's not looking good cause I can barely do the minimum requirements and from what I see on the points system that's not good enough. I will still go and give it my all. I'll let you guys know how it goes.
        I am in the same boat as you, I'm male and my pushups are fine but I am killing my abs everyday while working out. I hope I can do 20 but it doesn't look good for me either.

                  No there wasn't anything specific on posture or anything. Just step up and step down. Didn't really matter how. Just get up the and down for 5 mins.

                      You would've done more. The block prevents you from going so low so your chin wouldn't touch the floor. I did 40+ and rested for a bit and ended with 57.

                      I normally do 35-45 pushups on my own as my normal pushup range is lower than the test's

                          No worries ladies. I was worried about the same thing. But my adrenaline kicked in at the test and I even surprised myself. Just remember what all this will lead to and you will see the adrenaline will take you far enough. I am not kidding when I say that when I would practice my push-ups I would only get about 4 (no joke!) and the day of my test, I managed to do 27, and only God knows how that was done! Lol You will do fine. Just have faith!

                                September 22nd is the beginning of the new pay cycle. So you should get a check on October 10th. I could be wrong, I'm just going off my pay cycle here at the Dept. of HUD. Sept pay dates for me are 9/12 and 9/26. Might do a google search to make sure or look on OPM's website.
