Call me Jillian Michaels

I've had a number of people compliment me recently on my arms.

"Have you been lifting weights? Your arms look great!" people ask.

"Thank you!" I say. But no, no lifting weights for me. Just taking care of my child all day.

However, if you don't have a baby, I've put together an arm-toning workout for you:

1. Find an object (weighing around 23 pounds). The chunkier and cuter the better. Something that looks like this will do...

2. Pick that object up first thing in the morning. Then put it on the ground. Then pick it back up again. Do this until you go to bed at night... approximately 300-700 times each day.

3. About 30 seconds after you begin to do ANYTHING (ex: cook dinner, sort laundry, shampoo your hair, grocery shop), pick that object up, and then complete the task one handed! Feel free to switch arms so that both arms get an equal workout.

Just follow these easy steps, and you too can have toned arms!
