According to information on Dr. Oz..a study was done that reported the #1 exercise people did..and it was walking. Its free and easy. I walked today..I have trouble with my joints, over weight, and sedentary life style ..I have been using my recumbent bike and still do..but knew I needed to add walking into the mix..As the old saying goes.."You loose it if you don't use it"! Last week I started..the first day was walking at the school track for 1/4 of a mile. and that wasn't easy ..!! Today I walked 3/4 of a mile at the same track. Pretty impressive for me. It took me 50 min. to accomplish that 3/4 of a mile..but its better than the week before and now I feel I can do this. The Lord made our bodies wonderfully and marvelously. So try the simple solution..WALKING.
You could try Spark's video. Cleaning house, gardening, walking the dog, climbing stairs, dancing around listening to music. Cardio is anything that you can get the heart pumping. Lifing things can be weight training.
