1Farmer, I never had to put the hay in a hay loft, But I was always the bale carrier and when the bales got higher I stacked my friend's hay all the time. Also stacked for my horse's hay (which is only right).

On upper body strength, I didn't have it for some of those things like the rope. A new recreation center just opened here and one of my pickleball friends says I should go use their climbing wall. I told her I'd get killed doing that, but she said they have a harness you wear. Who knows, maybe I will try that. Dad and I used to climb the big rocks when we would go camping (that was a long time ago. Now I am afraid to try that)

I was physically fit and limber, but never could do handstands and out in the field could not hit a baseball. We didn't have gymnastics as they do now but I would have done well in them.

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of May 2019. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2019 to be back to below 155.

No upper body strength (back when even after doing the exercise trail in the park for months all I did was hang). Can't run either - almost flunked the mile run in gym in HS - I was able to walk fast enough to get in just under the time limit)

Movement of any kind. My Daddy said I was motivationally challenged.

Yes, mine was not being able climb the ropes, cross the monkey bars...anything that required upper body strength.

I was diagnosed with a hypo-thyroidism at age 13-14, and I really think it effected my muscles.

I was never really sporty though.


Chin-ups is a goal of mine, once I get closer to my goal weight. and monkey bars. Probably won't find a rope anywhere to climb.

Running (always twisted my ankle by the second step) and handsprings and walkovers. I also couldn't climb the ropes in gym.

I wore leg braces and wasn't allowed to play any game that involved throwing a ball.

Like what you have both said, I could never do the splits and I still fidget!

Remaining still, something I was never able to master. I still find it hard to sit and not fidget.

Thank you Susan for the question.

for me it was being able to do the splits. It took years before I could finally do the splits
