I had fun measuring specific tasks; I walked from my car to the grocery store, walked down every aisle (and picked stuff :-) through the checkout and then back to the car and it was half a mile! That comes in handy when I am bored and want something "specific" to do for exercise but something that is meaningful too.
I'm hoping to buy a restorator today, www.amazon.com/Drive-Restorator-Bike-Arms-
. I read all the reviews of the 4-5 kinds at my local Dick's Sporting Goods and am going to make sure I get a slightly more expensive model so it won't have the problems the cheaper ones appear to of not having enough resistance or being too light weight or not enough ground clearance, etc. I joined the Senior Fitness Network for their free newsletter and bought "Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Condiditions" by Kate Lorig; it covers all my various ailments it looks like.
