Welcome! I love to exercise and if you are able to do so, find fun exercise to fill your days. Drink plenty of water, get veggies/fruits in your daily diet.

My recommendation for heart health and fitness is a low-carb or paleo or primal-type diet and low-impact walking for exercise, the longer you can walk the better. I would keep the intensity low with about 180-age for heart rate but increase the distance as much as you can. Try to make exercise as much fun as possible by walking with a friend, with a dog, in a scenic environment and, if the weather is really lousy, on a treadmill and entertain yourself with music or TV if that helps or just make it your quiet time to think. After you have gotten into a routine with that I would start a little bit of strength training, ideally with 1-2 hours of instruction from a personal trainer to make sure you do the movements correctly. It does not require much equipment at all. Some housework might even count as strength training.
Either way, it does not have to look at all like Biggest Loser killing yourself to be effective. It matters that you can stick with it for the rest of your life.
Best wishes,
Birgit

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
