Thank you so much for your sensible replies. I did about 5 minutes of exercise yesterday, but today was able to do 30. So definitely back on track.

I would start off slow and build on your time each week until your strong enough.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

If you can afford it, book a Personal Trainer for a few weeks - mine really helped be giving me specific exercises - and a plan to get back to fitness.

Commit to a short, easy workout, like a walk. Loop past your house, and give yourself permission to go home if you're still lacking energy. You may feel heaps better once you're out there; I know I always do.

There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.

I would say exactly as previous poster. Say you will get out the door for 10 min. Then you can decide if you feel like and are able to do more. As was said, usually I end up doing more! emoticon

I would start with something small, like a walk around the block. See how it goes. Usually once I get going I want to keep going unless I'm really still sick.

If you still have a fever, it would be better to rest and allow your body to recover. If your fever is gone, that is great, but you do need to listen to your body. Once you are feeling 100% again, you can slowly increase your activity back to your pre-illness level. If you're feeling sluggish or the workout isn't going well, don't push it. When you push too much, the sickness can end up hanging around longer.

It's hard to say whether you are ready to get back to exercising, but you need to listen to what your body is telling you. If you have no energy still, then it is possible that you are not fully over what you had and your body may need some more time for recovery.

I have had a fever for about three days and am now feeling better. I keep thinking about exercise, but have no energy.
I have been here before and often stop exercising completely.

How do you know if your body is telling you to rest or if you bad habits are trying to kick back in?

Give me ideas, suggestions, anything to help me know when and how to start back.
