What the hell is taco arm?

What the hell is taco arm? What’s a taco arm? Picture a taco shell, it folds, yes? Now see the folds in these arms.   We also have bingo-arm. It’s the back of your arm all the girls point to when they say they want to “get rid of this thing right here,” that when bingo is called out with the triumphant raising of the arm in the air, it jiggles.

Why would I make this 72 year old woman do this?

I was headed to begin my day 5:30am at the gym, the group was warm and ready, the circuit was set, off we went.

Can you see the underlining of self-sabotage and setting oneself up with the building of the wall-of-resistance happening? Subtle. Quiet. Stealth. It creeps in and without our even … [Read more...]
