I should have asked what exercises do you already do to
get your heart moving, and which ones, would you like to
do?! cool
 
Let us know what exercises, or type of classes you've taken and tell us a bit about them.  Do you feel they helped you?  If they did help you, are you still doing them?  If not, why not? tongue
Come on everybody~let's dance!! yeah

Aww, come on...I know someone must exercise here!?~I mean really??...at least kick your toes up in the air?? lol confused
 
Actually, I used a treadmill for about 5 years, then arthritis in my hips/pelvic area took over...bought a tape on Tai Chi and did the exercises that I learned from it for almost 6-8 mos., but somehow I eventually stopped that pretty much, though I do have a few of those exercises that are nice to use when waking up in the morning. yeah My Dr. said to get an exercise bike.  I did.  Took me a few days of using that only to find out that my hips/pelvic area hurt so much, that I could barely get a good night's sleep~but my kids use all the equipment!  eyes So there's a great thing! tongue We have a pool, so I'll be using that when the water temp. gets over 84~yes, I'm a wimp! lol
 
So that's why I took on the parttime volunteer job working at the pet store and working with the exotic birds~I love them and the feeling is usually mutual :) and I pace the floor with them a lot so I do get in some exercise that way!
 
Okay, so now tell us about you!  What do you do for exercise?
 
Hugs for just trying, Teri tongue

Well.......I should exericse. When I became ill a few weeks ago I have not been back to the gym. nono But the ones that I like to do are the ones I learned in cardiac rehab. BTW, when I return I'm going to ask for suggestions from the team to get started all over again. I have heard of other heart patients going full force after not exercising and getting in trouble with that. But....I like the cardioglide because I'm so dang fat it's hard to walk and gets my heart rate up too high. The cardioglide is something (I hope I'm calling it the right thing, I have another thing at home called something like this.) that you sit down on and push pedals back and forth while moving your arms back and forth, kind of like ski poles is all I can think of. Then I do 2 sets of most of the weight machines. They told me how much I could lift and how to add reps, etc. I dont' lift much with my arms. Anyway, I've been feeling really guilty and like I'm not taking good care of myself. I am going back!! I promised myself today.

P.S. I forgot to answer a couple of the questions. Yes, these helped. I had started losing weight, had a little more energy, and just felt better, could walk a little longer and breathe better. I better get back.
