i'm late on this one but did it, good for the arms and shoulders, since i had surgery on the right side it helps to strengthen my right arm and shoulder, a good excerise to do.
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE!
TOMORROW IS MY DAUGHTER'S WEDDING!
O.K., I did it, my youngest daughter has already outed me and my middle daughter as already chastised me. I got a tattoo. For anyone who has followed my posts, you are aware that my relationship with my parents is strained and I feel closest to my paternal grandparents. I wanted my grandparents initials and dates of birth and death tattooed on my left ring finger. The guy told me I was nuts but he was able to put both of their initials on my left ring finger. I wanted my left ring finger because ancient beliefs connect the fourth finger of the left hand to the heart.
Ancient Romans believed the vein in the fourth or "ring" finger of the left hand led directly to the heart. They called this vein the "vena amoris," meaning the "vein of love." It is generally accepted that this began the practice of placing the wedding finger on the fourth finger of the left hand. To put this into historical perspective, the Roman Empire began as early as 750 B.C. and collapsed around 476 A.D. In addition, historical Christian wedding ceremonies included a ring exchange where the groom recited, starting at the thumb, "In the name of the Father," then the first finger, "and the Son," then the second finger, "and the Holy Ghost," and finally, placing the ring on the fourth finger, "Amen."
This was my way of keeping them close, of honoring them, of loving them. My daughter told me it would hurt but it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.Today's quote is from the http://www.quotegarden.com/...

To all my DC friends (people I haven't yet had the pleasure to meet) and family ( those people not biologically related to me, but with whom I have mutual respect and love for; they used to be friends but now that I know them, they're family now!!!) stay safe, keep warm, sleep well, be blessed
I liked that. Haven't done it before but it feels good!

I have a queston for anyone who might can help. I want to freeze banana pieces. It was a challenge in something I saw. Might sound silly , but do I just cut a banana in pieces and freeze it. The eat pieces frozen. How long can I keep them frozen, before I toss or eat them all. I love bananas but they go bad so quickly, when I read you can freeze them I really want to , but be sure I am doing it right. Help :)
ok here is the How to for my challenge today.:
Exercise for Everyone Strengthen your shoulder muscles while seated by climbing an imaginary rope for 30 seconds.
How to do it
Sit and visualize a climbing rope in front of you. Reach your left hand up and grab hold of the rope. See yourself move up the rope as you pull your left hand down and reach up with your right hand. Really focus and imagine pulling up your body weight, squeezing your hands and engaging your arm muscles as you do. Climb your imaginary rope for 30 seconds.
Why it matters
Visualizing an activity can help you reach your goals. In this rope climbing exercise, your shoulder and upper back muscles are engaged as you imagine pulling your body weight up. An added benefit is increased strength in your forearms, wrists, and hands, which are often overlooked in exercise. Having strong forearms
I'm just glad nobody saw me doing this one.
When I came back from my walk, I decided to reenter my house by climbing a rope up to my balcony. So I stood in front of my house (behind a wall, so my neighbors would not call out the padded wagon), and pulled myself slowly up the rope. Even with an imaginary rope, I almost didn't make it! I don't have a lot of upper body strength, so this was a good challenge for me. As I remember, I couldn't do this in gym either (back in the olden days). But it was fun today :))
Have a good day everyone! Day 2, cuz!
