Southern Exercise Program

My Southern Mama sent this one to me. Scott would say her form of exercise is picking up the phone and dialing HSC for a new gadget :)

Secret found for building arms and shoulder muscles and also trimming a little from the tum-tum. You might wish to adopt this regimen - 3 days a week works well:

I started by standing outside behind the house and, with a 5 pound potato sack in each hand, extend my arms straight out to my sides and hold them there for as long as I can.

After a few weeks I moved up to 10 pound potato sacks, then 50 pound potato sacks and finally I got to where I could lift a 100 pound potato sack in each hand and hold my arms straight out for more than a full minute!

Next, I started putting a few potatoes in the sacks, but I would caution you not to overdo it at this level.

I don't use HSN or QVC any more since a certain Italian Yankee Princess daughter-in-law introduced me to eBay!! I do, however, make purchases from a shopping channel in Nashville, TN called ACNtv. Very low tech you would laugh you a** off at them, but boy do they have terrific jewelry. Typing is very hard work dear and sniping stuff even harder. LOL

Thanks very much for the great laugh!

I'm just glad I had put my coffee cup off to the side before reading it.
