Spandex, Compression sleeves, and a Push Up Challenge

First of all....I LOVE my Spandex....I don't know why, and it's probably not a good thing! My spandex shorts and my capris. I'm currently shopping around for a pair of COLD gear long tights. They make me feel skinny for some reason....and the shorts make me feel like my legs look good..... This picture is how I feel in my Spandex shorts.....

I saw this picture on Pinterest, and then on Tall Mom's blog! 

So a few weeks ago I bought a pair of CEP compression sleeves, and proceeded to run 3 miles in them.  My legs were sore the last half of my run, and I'm pretty sure it was because of the sleeves.  I know a ton of people run in them, so is it just something that your legs have to get used to?  I was not a fan of running in them, however I am a fan of lounging around the house in my SPANDEX with the on!  Made my calves feel amazing!

So a few posts ago I made fun of myself for how aweful I am at pushups....and Jess @ The Blonde Ponytail suggested I do a pushup challenge.  Anyone have a link to one or want to send me the info?  This is RIDICULOUS!  After lifting chest on Wednesday night I tried to do some pushups and failed MISERABLY!  Someone HELP ME not be such a weenie!!

Ugh I suck at pushups too! One of my goals for the month is to increase my upper body strength so we will see how that goes! Funny about the sleeves - my boyfriend said the same thing when we ran a race this past weekend. He wore them for the first time and said he felt pain he's never felt before! They are fine on me though...strange!
