I have been meaning to write in my Health Catergory for quite some time now. I actually have a good number of things I like related to this whole being healthy and green stuff, so I wanted to share one of my favorite and easiest ways to shapen up those arms. And believe me I know….I had a baby last July and was over 200 lbs. I’m embarrassed to say. I actually felt really great the entire pregnancy and was only really uncomfortable those last couple weeks, like most moms, probably because I had already stacked on some weight before I got pregnant. I probably was 175 before I got pregnant with Baby T. And I am now…145 :) Woohoo…I will post a few of the things I did to get back into shape.
Tip #1 – Air Punches
Because women “my age” are concerned about their arms for sure. I have heard once you hit 40 it is harder to get rid of the extra fat and geesh…flabbiness, jelly arms, we all know what I’m talking about. Spellcheck just corrected flabbiness for me, haha, glad that is officially a word, GREAT! Anyway…this is what I do……..In addition to carrying around a 26 lb. baby (now walking so she probably doesn’t help the arms as much as she used to) I do air punches. When I’m in the shower…I’ll shampoo my hair…then while it is soaking for a bit I punch towards the ceiling as fast as I can until my arms burn, then do it again for the conditioner. It is super simple, saves times and makes you stronger. And who knows, maybe it will get out some frustration too…Punch away and have fun punching your arms to a nicely toned shape.
