For as long as I can remember, I have hated my arms.  Wearing a tank top or anything sleeveless was never an option for me.  And, over the years, fashion trends have not been kind to me in terms of finding clothes that have long enough short sleeves that I'm comfortable in.

Needless to say, I love long-sleeve weather.

But, I'm done hating my arms.  And, despite how silly this may seem, it was only recently that I truly came to understand that I can change the way my arms look.  If not, I'll end up with very flabby underarms indeed.  And I don't want that at all.

What I want is to be comfortable in short sleeves and to have healthy, toned underarms. 

Not crazy Madonna arms, but nice Michelle Obama arms.

I'm in the process of finding a good arm workout routine that I can do easily at home.  If you have any tips let me know!

Obviously, this will be an ongoing goal since my weight will fluctuate from time to time.  But, I'm still putting it on my bucket list because it's something that has bothered me for way too long and will be a great feeling when I finally can say that I love my arms!


  1. Working with just a five pound barbell will help tone those arms up pretty quick.

    If you don't have weights, you can still work your arms doing dips on a chair. Put your heels on the floor, your hands on the sides of the chair, ease down and back up....you're using your own body weight. It's a great tricep exercise, especially if you can't do pushups.

    Best of luck!

  2. I'm with you on this. Here's to new, nice arms!

  3. I want nice arms too. In fact, I think I'd rather have nice arms than perfect thighs.

  4. Stopping by for AtoZ. Good for you for taking charge of your arms!
