So, I’m not sure about you, but as I get older, I notice my skin has lost some of it’s elasticity, and despite my work outs, I’m left with this extra flesh which just kinda hangs off my upper arm. I’m not really sure where the extra skin comes from or if I just ignored it during the winter, since it was covered with an abundance of fabric. But it’s spring now, I’ve taken notice, and I’m not digging it. Not even a little bit.
(Just so we’re clear; this is not my arm).
The extra flesh, or bat wings as I’ve come to think of them, just isn’t cool, and I’m Not Gonna Take It (cue Twisted Sister). If I have to age, I sure as hell am not going to do it gracefully. I’ll go down kicking and screaming.
So I started going crazy with triceps exercises, but I had no pattern, no plan; it was just all triceps, all the time. Now, I’m the type of girl who needs a plan, so running around haphazardly wasn’t cutting it.
And then I found this, and a plan was born.
The plan is to do this workout for 15 days: 3 days on, 1 day rest, 3 days on, 1 day rest, 3 days on, 1 day rest, 3 final days on. The goal is to rid myself of the dreaded bat wings and look good, no great, in a tank top. Summer is coming, and I have tank tops in pretty much every color and type imaginable, including dress tank tops, casual tank tops, glittery tank tops (my favorite), so this workout is going to be crucial. I had the Hubby document my arms (yes, this is me flexed: don’t judge) on Day 2 of my Plan. We’ll check back in on Day 15 and see what progress has been made.
And because everyone knows you need good fuel for workouts (everyone’s knows, right?), dinner tonight was a burrito with coconut cilantro rice, corn, black beans, onion, tomatoes, and garlic cheddar cheese.
