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.

Iceman. You were 1 of the first to welcome me to this wonderful place. Do you miss the Michigan weather while you  post in  sunny Florida? Long may you live!! You always know when we need a light moment.

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!

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

And I think it's right where I need to start! I'm so out of shape!

Icetoo really is a godsend on this board.  you made me laugh when laughing hurt really bad but it still made me feel better and was really needed at the time.
