I pulled out the little black dress yesterday and held it up to myself. I realized as I was gazing at my dream reflection in the mirror (the one where I'm actually wearing it) that even though I'll fit into it when I drop the weight - I'm gonna' need to do something about those arms! You see, it's not just sleeveless, it 's actually a spaghetti strap type thingy which bares shoulders as well.
I want buff arms! And I know they're not all that hard to get. If I work at it. Quite a few years ago I belonged to a health club and used these resistance machines several times a week. It didn't take long before my upper arms started to get some real definition to them. SO yesterday I dusted off the weights again and did some reps. I'm still working on the push-ups too. I don't know if I'll ever be able to do one of those suckers the real way (as in not using my knees) but I'm going to make that a mini-goal. Perhaps when there's not so much weight to hoist off the ground I'll be able to pull it off.
Right now I don't like to wear tank tops. It's not a pleasant sight when your arms are still waving goodbye long after you have. Giving my upper body some form and definition will help balance out the *ahem* lower half which has always been my nemesis. Back in the 80's - when big shoulder pads were the rage - I was loving it!
I've noticed that's a goal for a lot of us....being able to wear sleeveless tops. I've added a pic my arms to my progress pics. Knowing that you'll all be watching my progress will give me the motivation I need to keep at it. I'm going to call it "The Great arm Challenge." Anybody want to join me?
