Excuses? I gottta million of 'em -- no pushups today!

Ok so no pushups yesterday. Crashed from trying to not be sick so I can keep going to work. I like going to work and being good when I get there. I get to play with kids!
So, today, since I seem to have lost my original cheat sheet, I took the initial test. Arms feel wobbly. I did the modified push-up. You know the one--you're on your knees, that one. I did 12. Yup, and feeling good about it. Even after looking at how far from the floor I was. My goal was to feel my shoulder blades touch. My body told me that was good enough, so I am going with Level 2 which means I start in the second column for day 1. My ego wants to start in column 3, though: Sets of 10, 12, 7, 7, >9. That gives me a decent "fail" level.
Why am I trusting this? I've had an introduction to this kind of training at a local studio and I liked the feeling I got from it. Circumstances prevent me from attending but, as we can see from this, I'm not giving up.
