How to exercise after a Neph.

Here is one of my BO (before outage) posts.

Begin by standing at a comfortable surface where you have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5lb. 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 will find that you can hold this position a little bit longer.

After a couple of weeks move up to the 10lb. bag, a couple of more weeks move up to the 20lb. bag and then finally a 50 lb. bag and hold your arms out straight for a full minute

After you feel comfortable at this level, put a potato in each bag.

    I live in western oregon and it was 28° in the morning than 65° and sunny! It was amazing.. However, we are expecting snow on monday. Which is fine since we haven't had snow yet this winter. Just everywhere else got the snow. Be safe, stay warm, and dry out there!

    love it

    Hope you realize how many poeple you give hope to on this board (and did to me as well last year). Funny story of my own...I think I was symbolically curled up in a ball, delusional with anxiety and fear, etc etc so I threw out a question to the board. You gave a response that had a few FU's in it and I thought "well, that's not very nice..."

    Had zero idea that FU meant "follow up" lol
