I do not think I understand the relation between those two git repositories.

If is intended to be a mirror of the upstream git repo at
github, it should only contain commits already pushed to github and nothing
else. Additionally, already pushed commits should not be rewritten.

If is intended to be a staging repository for your work, it
should be clearly marked such (e.g. by using a separate branch for that
while keeping the master branch synced with github).
