What's on tap for your Saturday or your weekend? Are you getting a workout in? Challenging yourself one day? Trying something new?
Whatever it is I know and you know it will be worth it! Go ahead and go for it.
I say this because it's all hard work. I have always believed there is no such thing as luck = it's all about hard work!
I've done a lot this week, really pushed myself and I'm really sore. I'm hoping you find a way to push yourself, too. Getting out of your comfort zone is how we grow - and that's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual! Just know it WILL be worth it!
Have fun this weekend!
And, by the way, my oldest son turns 16 tomorrow. How did that happen? I might get a little sad thinking about it. . .
What challenges you? What's out there you want to try?
I've always been an arm person. This used to baffle my brother. He couldn't get why I would care about a gal's arms, or my own arms. Maybe I think if your arms are toned, then the rest of the body would be toned. Maybe I see it as a sign of strength. Maybe I just like to see a little muscle. Who knows why we see some things differently as others.
However, a lot has been made lately of skinny arms. Namely, Angelina Jolie's arms. I wouldn't have thought about writing about this, until my teenage son brought it up. When I saw recent photos of Angelina I thought she looked abnormally skinny and did not appreciate the look of her unmuscled, emaciated arms. My son told me he and his buddies were watching the Golden Globes and thought she looked terrible - her arms looked like toothpicks. So, it wasn't just me. I'm glad it wasn't just my "arm thing". I'm not sure her arms could withstand a push-up.
Then, there is the other side of the coin, "Madonna Arms". I think Madonna's arms show a lot of discipline and hard work. They could definitely withstand push-ups, LOTS of them. And Down Dogs, burpees, bicep curls, and slugging some dude trying to steal her purse.
Of course, some folks have negative remarks to say about Madonna's arms, too. I will admit some of the photos show them as particularly cut and veiny, so I get that, too.
Of course, there is a happy medium. There is a balance between the two. A gal can have a fit and strong body with arms that fit right in. These would be arms capable of carrying a load of groceries, a baby for hours daily - or heck, two babies at a time (!), move a piece of furniture without having to wait on a male species and hold a Plank pose for the length of a TV commercial. That would be a healthy, fit arm of a healthy, fit gal. I think that's what it is all about.
Are you an arm person? Would you rather have Angelina arms or Madonna arms?
