Remember, any exercise is better than nothing at all. Check with your Dr. before starting any type of exercise, that its safe for you. As you gain strength, work up to 30 minutes a day. Do 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening. Try walking for 10-15 minutes on your lunch break for a week and keep track on your calender. Choose an activity that you enjoy like swimming, danceing, walking. If you miss a day or two, just pick up again the next day.

Set small goals at first then gradually build your goals up. Start with a 10 minute walk then build from there. And if your worried about your saftey, then walk around the police station.(LOL)

Funny you should mention this. I just posted an article on the issue of exercise by Dr. Fogoros (one of my favorite cardiologists after Doc Davis). He kind of gets to the same point that the hour per day that is recommended by the latest study is nuts. Start small and do what you can then perhaps work your way up. It may not be optimal but it all helps.
