Work Out!

What do you do? What is your daily routine? Do you even have a daily routine?

I, for one, have not gotten caught up in the exercise fad. When the idea of exercise comes to mind, I take a nap until it passes.

I try to walk 30-45 minutes a day when it's nice out, otherwise I use the recumbent bike/rowing machine. While watching Big Bang Theory.

It annoys me when BBT is preempted. Never do that again, Fox Network.

The mall opens @ 6:30 in the morning for walkers, well lit and music overhead, temperature controlled. I walk there for at least 30 minutes when the weather is icky. Otherwise, I walk outside for 30 minutes/4 days a week. The other 3 days I do cardio with weights, basically the weight stretches and toning I learned in Cardiac Rehab. I do it to fast paced music and try to keep up. I keep the weights light and just increase the reps.

I try to get on the exercise bike Monday to Friday and have the weekends off, we also normally go for a walk after tea everynight but it has been way to hot to get out there and walk, waiting for Autumn to get back into it

LOL are you sure you aren't my DH ????

We really haven't done much in that line this winter, but when the harsh cold is not around we walk the neighborhood. We go to the park about 4 blocks from here and circle it twice, then on the way home we stop and check on our elderly neighbors .. it gets them off the couch and out for a bit of fresh air and we usually enjoy the break at that time.

I walk every day with the dog, whatever the weather, we do between 30 - 60 minutes depending how much time I have . He gets a shorter walk in the evening . I do my Wii Fit twice a week .

PF I was contacted after my last heart attack by the Cardio Rehab folks. They just let me know they were there. They never followed up and I didn't know if I was supposed to. I know I need to excercise, but with my hip and spine problems, anything that requires me standing or walking for any time is out of the question. And it is not feasible for the "work it out, and it will work out for you." There is just too much damage to my hip and spine. And it is also a circulation problem that they can't do anything about. Five trips to the Cath Lab was of no help in that department. So my question is;

Would they have a program that would of benefit to me? I get out of breath easily. And that is my other problem. I am also afraid of having another heart attack. Three of them is enough for me. Not a good feeling.

I do 20 - 30 minutes on the treadmill every morning using wrist weights for upper body exercises. Then I alternate days between 15 minutes of weight lifting using dumbbells or 15 minutes working the reflex bag. I call it progress by ounces.
