A hundred days might not seem like enough time to change your life or your physique, but 20-year-old Estella Gong proves it's possible just by doing push-ups.
The computer engineering student at University of Central Florida was known among her friends for being scrawny, so when she happened up the website GiveIt100.com, which challenges users to accomplish a goal in 100 days, she decided it was time to test her strength.
"When I first started, I was really interested in getting personal strength, and working on my upper body strength in general," Gong tells the Good News Blog. "For some reason, I guess because I'm really tiny, people don't expect a lot of strength from me."
Determined to change that opinion, Gong challenged herself to master push-ups, an exercise she'd always despised and had little success doing.
"The first time I tried doing push-ups, it was pitiful, it was almost like gravity was laughing at me because I couldn't get off the ground," she recalls.
