Exercising while NWB?

Hi all,

What are you doing to maintain some modicum of fitness while NWB? Is it a good or bad idea to try something?

Today I decided to tackle my octane seated elliptical machine with my foot propped up and resting, so my arms and good leg got the workout. 10 minutes lowest level was all I allowed myself to see what happens. Toes are a little purple but not at all painful.
