Day 3 Exercise usually not a problem

    I typically try to do some sort of exercise, although it's usually something mild like walking and some low-exertion exercises at home. I've had some bad days where just moving was exhausting, but lately I've been feeling good enough most of the time to do whatever I want (Pain isn't a problem for me, but exhaustion is. I do have some minor pains, but exhaustion is one of the biggest physical problems that's kept me held back). I usually do only minor exercise, not anything that requires huge amounts of exertion. On days when I have exerted myself, I would feel strong both emotionally and physically.

    Isn't it amazing, Camera, how exercise works? It's almost like a feedback loop--I exercise and feel strong, so I continue to exercise!
    I'm just returning from an 11 day road trip, and I'm so excited to resume my weekly exercise regimen. I swim 2-3 times/week, walk or hike, and do yoga 1-2 times/week. Low impact exercise works best for me, because high-impact exercises would inflame my joints. I don't lift 30 lb kettlebells like my husband does, because that would be ridiculous for me. But when I exit the pool after swimming 1/3 to 1/2 mile, I feel as if I could conquer the world!

    It is pretty amazing. You have a nice exercise routine going. Walking, hiking, swimming, and yoga are the sorts of exercises I like to do as well. That's pretty cool that you have the motivation to keep up with your regimen!
