No excuses, you have to at least TRY the following:

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 longer. ----------------- After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks.

Now, keep moving up the ranks of sizes of bags.
Then try the 50-lb. Potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you 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.) :)

I know can you believe it--after all these years of finding a program that will work for me--I can not wait to tell my Internist when I have my physical at the end of the month--he will be so proud--I am actually up to 6 days a week on this program and I am telling you, that you can do this too. Believe me--it is life changing.

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks. That is what I am going to go for tomorrow. Let me know how this program works for you.

Well, dear ones--perhaps your physical exercise is going better than mine--pray for me, now and at the hour of my death--please-PRAY your HOPE bead for me and the whole Vinzant family.
But, today is the First Friday and Our Dear Sweet Jesus--the FACE of LOVE has made PROMISES--He wants to pour out HIS LOVE on us and today is a day of many Graces. Find one of the many places to spend special time with the Lover of our Souls today this day:
"Oh, Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You, be Thou my only HOPE, fearing all in my weakness, hoping all in Thy Goodness, be Thou my constant stay and protection against all evil and desires of wickedness...Prone to Wander, Lord I feel it--prone to leave the God, I love--here is my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for Thy Courts above--Come Thou Fount of every Blessing, tune my heart to sing Thy praise, steams of Mercy, Never ceasing, Calls for songs of Loudest Praise..."

Praying for you and yours,

In the Sacred Heart of Jesus
