My new friend, Dr. Morse, sent me the following exercise program he recommends for people over 50.
“Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.
Below – here are the results you can expect
Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags. Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I’m at this level.)
He concluded with this key tidbit of information. “After you feel confident at that level, place a potato in each bag.”
I have two questions. Where do you find 100-pound potato bag, and can you eat the potatoes when you finish your routine?
And this just in from my friend Cynthia in Pascagoula. I thought she was a happily married woman, but she confided to that that she was having an affair with a good friend. I wrote her back and asked if she was having it catered or doing the food herself.
“I’ll probably have it catered,” she responded. When did the term “affair” take on a whole new meaning?
