Parachute pants, cool. Parachute arms, not cool.

Ok ladies... (yeah, maybe men have this issue sometimes too, but I think more ladies than men!) Do you avoid tanktops or anything strapless? Is your upper arm still waving, but you actually stopped waving ten minutes ago?

We've all been there, but never fear, for I have a solution! It's true, you can't spot tone fat away. To get rid of fat, you MUST, simply MUST do cardio, get your blood pumping, a good sweat flowing, and most importantly your heart rate needs to be up. However, shedding fat is only the first part of the equation, you need to build up the muscle under that layer of fat as well. I have a routine here that I found in SHAPE magazine to help you get started (a guilty little pleasure of mine, love that magazine!) Try this workout. Don't be discouraged if you can't do the entire thing, take it slow, do what you can and work up! Also remember you can modify to your level, if you aren't sure, just ask and I'll help you! Tomorrow, a lil surprise challenge :)

Always remember, no matter how much exercise you do, you can eat right through it! You are what you eat, so watch portions, and work hard. You'll be seeing results in no time!
