Fitness tips...

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of
room at each side. With a 5-lb potato sack 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
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks.
Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where
can lift a 100-lb potato sack 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 of the sacks.

Oh you got me good on that one!

Funny that this No Complaining challenge came my way at this time in my life. I just so happened to have started a book called Happy Housewives where one of the cardinal rules is "No More Complaining!"

Someone is trying to tell me something, I think :-)

Way to go! I can't even imagine holding a five pounder for one minute much less 100 pounds. That's awesome!

LOL! Um, if I've got over 100 pounds of potatoes in the house then I've probably got bigger problems then the size of my hips!
