Something you might want to consider too, is setting up your Fitness Tracker so you count the steps you take in a day. You'd need a pedometer for this; you can get one at Walmart for maybe 15 bucks. There is various info on the web (and probably here on Spark too-- I don't remember) on using step count as a measure of activity level.
Since you count all your steps, whether you're shopping or on the treadmill or just moving around the house, it isn't necessarily "cardio". BUT it is a reflection of activity level. Around 3000 is considered "sedentary". And somewhere around 7000 is "light activity", 10,000 is "active", and over 12,500 is "very active".
So even with a heart condition, if you've been told it's okay to move as much as possible-- you could wear the pedometer for a few days, just to get an idea of how much you normally move around in a day, and then try to increase the number of steps each week by 100 per day or 250 per day or whatever.
