I usually post serious and practical information and I think you, our visitors, appreciate that since this site receives so many hits. However, because the Wind Chill Index in Lombard is going down to 40 degrees below zero tonight, I though I would share something a good friend sent me. I hope it will make you smile a little.
It is an Exercise for Folks Over 60:
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.
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 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).
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
Enjoy, and Stay Warm
