I have not "exercised", since my accident and subsequent MS full on symptoms began back last July (2009).
I know, that if my body gets too hot, that's a very bad thing, but I also know I have to watch my weight, and exercise.
My wife just got us a membership at the "Y" (YMCA), because she wants to start doing water aerobics, for her arthritis and pain in her back and legs.
I told her I would join with her, but not necessarily do the water aerobics.
I have a condition whereby, when underwater, I lose my sense of "which way is up", even though I know, it's a pool, and all I have to do is put my feet down, unless, I'm in the deep end, if you know what I mean.
Before all this happened, my usual mode of exercise, was a stationary bike.
Not one that looks like a bicycle, but one you kinda lay back in, stretch out your legs, and pedal.
My machine, told me my average speed (mph), how far I "traveled" (in tenths of a mile), and calculated how many calories I was burning.
On my machine, I did a one mile "warm up" and one mile "cool down", and recorded about 40 miles and about 1500 calories burned, and I did this in less than 90 minutes.
This was before I had foot surgery, so it has probably been more than 2 years, since I have even attempted this.
So, when my wife set us up at the Y, I checked out their stationary bikes, and they can do the same as mine.
My Q? Is should I go back to the stationary bike, should I attempt or expect the same results, or should I not attempt it, and just do water aerobics, or simply swim laps (which I can do, as long as I swim on top of the water)?
Your input is most welcomed.
Please tell me, what any of you do, if anything.
I also have a Wii fit plus, at home, but it doesn't seem like much of a workout, and takes forever to burn many calories.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and cooperation, I truly appreciate it.
