For many years I did aerobics and the camaraderie was a stimulus to do it. Was avid for 3x/week. I was on NSAIDS for foot pain so I could do it. Peracutely, in 2002 as I was going to a national orthopedic meeting I got hauled out of the Flint, M airport by ambulance to a hospital for a week rather than enjoying my meeting and skiing. (Had a perforated stomach ulcer). My exercise stopped immediately. However there are 12 of us women thru this exercise at the YMCA that get together for ea others birthdays/xmas. My only exercise now is turning, hauling shavings up the basement steps, avid gardening, cutting/splitting firewood to heat the house and make wood blanks. Not very aerobic exercise, but fortunately I have low blood pressure, lo cholesterol, etc. When I got tested 5-6 years ago for life insurance, my rates were lowered as I was a premium/preferred customer.I don't want to take the time to get back into a exercise routine where i drive somewhere. Oh well, don't have Odie's gumption. On the other hand my physician daughter exercises 3x/day( except when nursing-then only BID)-an addict.
