The most exercise I can do is a short walk to the bathroom or kitchen. I try to get up and walk too the kitchen every half hour, that's all I can do.

Exercise isn't that a book kids have at school?

Exercise is important, moving about as much as possible according to ability keeps the blood circulating with less strain on the heart.

Couldn't agree more,
I have a 7 year old son who keeps me moving if he isn't swimming he is on the trampoline shouting dad come bounce with me or if the weather is bad he is Dad help me build this magic track (a car track which clips together one small piece at a time) and we build it from the upstairs down the stairs in to the kitchen I am like a yoyo up and down the stairs lol or Dad help me build this marble run and oh no he can't have a normal marble run he has to have it huge 5 feet tall and 5 feet length lol (thanks to family who all bought him marble run for Christmas we have loads of the stuff), I take him out to the playing fields not far away and have races with him (well he runs I slowly jog lol) I do it to tire him out a bit but he is like a Duracell bunny. No wonder I sleep so well smile.png

Sorry to hear that, Oldal. :( Is this a temporary thing due to feeling poorly or - and I hope not! - a permanent thing?

I walk the dog, usually twice a day, in the morning and the evening. Also I exercise with dumb bells every day and keep moving throughout the day as I live in a 4 level house.

Most experts agree that the imbalance that leads to muscle loss begins around age 50, although some studies suggest it might start earlier. “This will affect everybody by the age of 75,” Calabrese says. An inactive lifestyle accelerates the process,, and others say it starts around 30.
Either way I find because of injuries and concussions I've incurred over my lifetime, without daily exercise, I'd quickly become immobile.Water aerobics (low impact), walking , and light weights , hiking are thus far keeping me upright.
Because of my head injuries (just suffered my 4th concussion), they are starting to take their toll.I'm deaf in my right lear, with a moderate loss of hearing in my left .iLoop-shaped canals in your inner ear contain fluid and fine, hairlike sensors that help you keep your balance. At the base of the canals are the utricle and saccule, each containing a patch of sensory hair cells, and because of the damage they have incurred in my right ear, I now have severe balance issues, worsened by age and meds.

So stay active as long as you can, eat well and get plenty of exercise

I'm itching to start going to the gym again, after a couple of weeks of being rather poorly. I thought I was having heart/lung trouble because of the pains, but it turned out to be a serious blood infection. On a scale of 0 to 5 for a person in good health, my infection level was a 296, and it was putting a lot of strain on my heart and lungs.

They did an angioplasty to see if the ticker was OK and there was no new damage, so I was chuffed about that. I was also chuffed the blood infection didn't turn into something nasty such as sepsis or pneumonia. It's all about silver linings, isn't it. :) The Specialist Nurse and the Surgeon reckon the gym helped to keep me alive, as even when I had a temperature of 38.6C my heart and lungs were working well and my blood oxygen level was always 98 or 99 out of 100. I'm a lucky lad really. Anyway, I feel good, and after a sign-off from the hospital I will start gentle workouts and build myself up again. at the gym. :)
