    I don’t really exercise. Maybe one or two walks with my dog. About 0.5 miles. At a time.

    Things need to be gentle. Usually if you can find something online that has different intensities do the most gentle one

    Try light yoga.

    I like water aerobics! It’s gentle but gets me moving

      I also love getting in the water to exercise. Deep water aerobics is my favorite.

    It’s very hard to get motivated to exercise. Maybe we can get a yoga mat and commit to each other to exercise at the same time on certain days. Supporting each other may help. I’m up to try. Your thoughts.

    so I really enjoy swimming,. But the only thing is, is when u get out...ur heavier than shit, so my knees hurt.

    I had a knee injury from a bike accident, lately I’ve been taking the stairs rather than the elevator, and I live on the 5th floor. I take my Tramadol and that helps. Rate your pain from 1-10.

    Low impact modifications of exercises help. Lots of warming up first, stretching after. Its hard. I def spent time crying on the floor. The key is taking it easy and increasing in tiny amounts

    I start with long slow stretches of my entire body, then do a bit of chair yoga. I walk my dog a few times a day after I have stretched. She's great at waiting for me.
