I hate to admit it, but I’m at that age and stage where whatever firmness my arm muscles once possessed has vanished without a trace. But rather than succumb to this flabby fate without a fight, I’ve decided to take action. I am determined to tone up my triceps.
Now, I’m not one who is enamored with gym memberships…or home workout equipment…or CrossFit…or exercise in general…but I found something on Amazon that I think is going to do the trick. It’s a 7 pound arm weight that I won’t mind lifting in the least.
The UPS man delivered it straight to my door earlier this week. Here is a picture so you can get an idea of the strenuous lifting I’ll be doing!
Yep…its’a new lens! And this thing is a beast. I have been drooling over this lovely lens for quite some time, but it felt too extravagant and indulgent to actually get one. Lucky for me, I happen to have a hubby who loves me and insisted the time had come to bring this baby home. I put up a bit of a argument, but not much!
I’ve only had a few minutes to try it out, but here are the first-fruits of my arm flab reduction commitment.
First…this Blue Jay who popped in for some peanuts.
Then, this Nuthatch who grabbed a quick drink. If you happen to be a painter, do me a favor and click on this fellow’s photo to get an enlarged picture. His feathers are just beckoning to become brushstrokes!
And finally, this beautiful Cardinal. The pics of this glorious guy are ones that would have been blurry with my other lens.
Ah…who knew working out could be so much fun!
