TiffNeedsChange, thanks for your reply! I'll wait a few days and if it's not better, I'll have to go to the doctor....even though I *really* don't wanna.
Question...is the stationary bike a good workout? What level do you recommend? How many miles are considered enough? Weird questions I know, but I'm just so used to doing either running, elliptical (mostly this one), step mill and rowing machine that doing the bike seems like it wouldn't get me that great of a workout. I guess I can't be picky though since there's not much else I can do. I won't swim because it seems to make me ravenous (not sure if that's psychological or not, but I don't need anything to stimulate my appetite).
