3wk strength training. Help!

I’ve got three weeks to build the strength in my arms, no gym, just two 2.5kg hand weights to do it. 

Does anyone have any advice which exercises I can try to build my arms?

I’ve been following Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred, which uses hand weights and it’s going well but I now need to build my strength, and quickly. 

On September 4th my company is taking everyone away overnight. We do it every year, a little treat. 

The last few years it’s been a day at the races. Lots of food and drink and a bit of fun. We get to judge the best dressed horses and sit in the “posh box”. 

This year we’re going to a swanky hotel overnight with team games during the day. 

They’ve done it before, before I started. They played lawn chess and noughts and crosses. Very tame, a bit boring. 

We’ve just been told this year it’s Mini Highland Games, in teams. 

  
Every game involves throwing something! I know how competitive these things get so I need to work on my upper body strength so I don’t let my team down. But I’ve no idea how. 

Any tips anyone?

Week 6 Results…. need help

Another week where I just can’t get my head in gear.

But I did lose another 1/2 lb.62bb369976ffe57dd4d8901f01be8b34

If I keep it up all year that’s 26lbs so I’m still happy to be losing.

But I need to get myself out of this miserable “I can’t do this” mentality or it’s going to take me forever.

I’m down 13lbs now which is fantastic. One more pound and I get my 1st award at Slimming World and I’m going to redo my photos and measurements.

Any tips for getting back on track. I could use the advice.

Uh oh!

I had a moment.  I’m not sure whether to call it brave, stupid or something else.

I was thinking, why do I need to lose weight to be blonde? I can be blonde now.

So did I book into the salon?

No of course not, that would have been sensible.

I bought boxes of hair dye, lightener etc.

It’s on my head right now.

I’m really starting to panic! What have I done?

Naturally I’m one shade away from black.

Wish me luck… Eek!!

At least if it goes wrong I can dye dark over the top right?!
