A New "Vigorous" Lifestyle

After a heart operation 8 years ago and now with afib, vigorous exercise for me is walking up and down hills with my dogs. I appreciate the program's definition of "vigorous" activity with regard to singing, etc., since I think this helps people like me participate. "Vigorous" for me has certainly changed in the last 10 years!
