Listening to: Every Breath You Take- The Police.
I'm guessing you have all seen my very indulgent post about my weight loss; don't worry I'm not going to repeat myself- but I am going to add that (now I realise I had completely forgotten) I didn't do a single piece of exercise.
Not a single second was spend in a gym, running, or doing any sort of DVD ect. Perhaps this goes to show how very easy it is to lose weight, but that's not what this post is about. This post is about my arms.
Although I'm blessed with a job I not only love- it also keeps my legs effortlessly muscular, but fat does not drop off leaving muscle behind. Thus leaving me with a wobbly stomach and arms.
Now I couldn't care less about having a belly full of jelly (my irrational fear of people seeing my belly button results in me never showing it off), but my arms are weak little sausages (I can't open jars/ undo bottles/ pick up boxes- anything that requires arm strenght); and are going to be flashed about everywhere now they have ink on them (not that my bingo wings are going to stop me if they remain)- today the toning starts!
This is where this little gadget from my boyfriend comes in (he uses it to stop his hands from cramping from playing bass so often and general arm strenghtening).
My usage of this is pretty appalling- I've been trying to use it all evening but unlike my boyfriend (who can use it for 30 minutes non stop without a sweat) I can only do about 4 reps then needed to stop for some orange squash for the night. Its hard! But by the end of this week I'm aiming to do 10 reps with either arm without stopping!
I guess its only fair I tell you where this new ambition has come from- Buying this super amazing new shirt! (Sorry about my awful hair- had a nightmare with it today and I promise it looked 100 times better in real life- although I just couldn't stop having to rearrange it into to my Heidi hair all day).
Shirt: Charity shop.
Boots (not shown): DMs
Necklace: ASOS marketplace
I've always held back from buying sleeveless tops before- being too worried that the cut would accentuate my chest and just make me look even broader and boxy, but I'm glad I gave it a go. I want to cut off all my sleeves now! So expect a few more DIY pieces.
On the topic of DIY what does everyone think of what I post? Any constructive criticism or suggestions are welcome.
