Important Health Message



As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, 
I rapidly realized - It's the tortoise life for me!

1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.
3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.
4. A tortoise doesn't run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.

And you tell me to exercise?? I don't think so. I'm retired. Go around me!

EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 50



Begin by standing on 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'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10lb potato bags.

Then try 50lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can
lift a 100lb potato bag 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 bag.
