Great Arms

The weather is warming up, and I need to tone up my arms. Well, I really need to trim down and tone up EVERYTHING. I have plenty of muscle, but it seems to reside beneath a layer of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

Michelle Obama has the best arms. Her arms have great muscle tone, they aren't too bulky, and they still look femine. Perfect.





Jennifer Aniston has excellent arms and a very nice physique. I'm guessing she does a lot of yoga and that she doesn't eat much.



Madonna has gone too far with the exercising. Look at her guns! I think she looks positively gristly. I want to sit her down and force feed her cheesecake until she starts looking softer and more feminine.




Lisa Aukland (Female Bodybuilder) might just have the scariest arms/physique of all. Gulp. But, body building is her chosen profession, so I won't really hold it against her. And I wouldn't dare challenge her to an arm wrestling contest.


I have had this Kathy Smith - Timesaver Lift Weights to Lose Weight DVD for years, and when I actually bother to DO THE WORKOUT, I get excellent results. I started back on it again this weekend and am trying to refrain from checking the mirror for visible improvements. I am rather impatient.

I recently saw these tips for getting First Lady-style arms in case you are interested: Get Michelle Obama's Sexy Sculpted Arms in 5 minutes a day. I will be giving this a try, too.

Love Michelle's arm....thanks for the tips, I can really use some right now! Love Madonna, heat her arms...not pretty.

I never seem to have a problem keeping up with cardio exercising, but I always get really bored with toning -- so these tips are perfect!!

I also agree about Madonna -- staying in shape = "good" -- arms like that on a teeny.tiny person = not as good.

madonna creeps me out now - it's like sinew instead of elegant and beautiful.

A few thoughts...

1. My main beef with bodybuilders is the tiny outfits they wear. They look like something out of aeon flux (a show that still gives me nightmares).
2. My arms are by far my least favorite part of my body (besides my new fake tooth that looks like a chicklet), so I will definitely check out that Obama arm guide.

Madonna's arms are gross. I need to tone up as a whole especially since bikini season is quickly approaching! Yikes!

Madonna is so scary. Just do yoga? That's what I use with my arms and it seems to work. It has done more for me than when I run.

When I used to work out every other day, I had the best arms ever. Now, three years later, not so good. :( I need some encouragement. The weather does not help!

I swim mega laps at the indoor pool at the Burbank YMCA and do cardio boxing right down the street at GIO's Boxing Gym on Olive Ave. Remember drollgirll, cardio, cardio, cardio, and you too will have a sexy girlish figure like mine.

Seriously, Madonna is pretty freaky looking. I hope that I still have my shit together when I'm her age, but honestly, not that crazy..... -e

Awesome Sara said...

i'm so sick of michele obama!!! i don't care if doesn't sound pc, or i just don't understand the whole black people president thing bc i don't see skin color. but she is so boring. great your black, now go make your husband do something. christ, i voted for change and i aint seeing it!!!

i forgot what i was going to say about arms. damn it.

thereddeer said...

Ewww doesn't Madonna look revolting.

My arm work out includes carrying my 5 month old around all day :P

Charlotte said...

Madonna used to be so soft and curvy, her arms look hideous now. I need to work on my arms now too. I have bingo arms. You know when you yell, "Bingo" and your triceps flap in the breeze? Not pretty.

one little simitopian said...

Arms....Gah! They are so damn hard to tone! I will definitely be checking out how to get Mrs. Obamas arms!

Madonna needs to change her name to "Bruce".

carina said...

To madonna and the bodybuilder - what are you ladies thinking?!!!!

yummychummy said...

i love your label - not looking good!!!

Posh Adornment said...

Ok first thing is the people leaving comments on your posts are as funny as you are drollgirl...especially the oh so pc person who tells it like it is about Michelle....YEAH!! Go tell your husband to do something...just like all the other wives in the world!

And now to the arms...best way to get great arms is to pump 'em up by pushing away the Ben and Jerry's...but ech! What is Madonna thinking??

I have horrible arms to match my also horrible, chubs of a body. My kids think my 'granny' arms are sooo soft. Great! I'm thrilled. I gave up pushing away B&J's ice cream years ago and now I do pull ups with the great long Hungarian sausages that I just found home made in a little shop not to far away.
