Default Exercise

I said I was going to have questions. Here is another one:

Is it good to exercise?

My daughter has been taking me to the gym about two to three times a week. I use the exercise bike for about an hour or less.

I, also, was going to physical therapy, but recently stopped because I it depresses me. I used their exercise bike for 10 minutes, practiced standing up (did not do very well, and always wanted to cry), and some stretch exercises (which I can do at home).

Every time I exercise I sleep afterwards.

The sticky states we should conserve energy. Am I doing more harm to myself by doing this? Is this a waste of time? My daughter wants to build my muscles up, but from what I have read here, that cannot be done.

Hugs,
Deb
