Yes, exercise is good for me. But I pretty much hate it. I am not one of these fitness nuts. I have never been athletic. I have always been a klutz. But I do know that it helps what is wrong with me, and that sitting on the couch isn’t good for anyone.
But through experience, I have learned that going hard is not good for my body. I have to start low and go slow. I have to do low impact. Even when I’m feeling better I have to watch that I don’t overdo it because I will feel worse. Because then I won’t walk for days.
Yoga is good for fibro and autoimmune. Walking is good. Swimming is good. Boxing is not good. Neither is running. Even the elliptical at the gym is way too high impact for me. I have learned this from experience. Painful experience.
I do have a goal of learning krav maga one day, but that is far off. I know that I have to build up my body before I can even entertain that idea.
But it is spring. It is a time of renewal. And hopefully after the winter that never ended I will be back to yoga.
