Me too. When I start an exercise program I tend to want to do all I can and then I am sore for the next few days. We need to remember to do things in moderation. Have a great weekend everyone.

I often wonder why we keep pushing our self beyond our comfort zone when we know we end up paying the price for it. I keep thinking perhaps it stems from not being able to keep up with the rest of the world...finding the balance and accepting our 'limits' would be managing pain in a good way...

For the past few weeks, I pushed myself beyond what my body allows me to do without pain and sickness, but naturally I wanted to push through it, not baby myself and now I'm burnt out just in time for the long weekend with no energy to get ready for camping ;(

when will I learn? lol

Hope you are having a good day.

Thank you for responding, finding the right balance will probably take a while, and swimming has always been a favorite of mine. I am looking forward to putting up our 'splash pad' as I call it. It's only a 15' X 4 ft deep pool that I 'splash' around in. I do some water exercises in it and enjoy cooling off in the summer, playing with the grandchildren.

I really should keep it up through the winter months, I'm sure it would be an excellent way to keep the joints moving all year.

Hope your having a great day....

I know how hard it is to exercise when you're in pain. Do you have access to a pool? Aqua fitness is a great way to get exercise and it is easier on the joints. Swimming is great exercise as well. Just do what you can and don't overdo things.

I'm not in constant pain, so I may not be able to give a good answer... All I can say is that when I was having constant pain before (luckily it went away) I remember being very reluctant to do my yoga exercises because I'd be sore afterwards.

Until I realized that I was being 'too tough' with myself when doing the yoga... I needed to slow down and become very mindful with the exercises... feeling carefully where my limits were. I know that if I don't do the yoga I will get more and more stiff and limited in my movements in the longer run.
Now, I can do my yoga exercises at home. Last week for the first time in about a year I took a class in yoga, tried to be mindful then too, but it's harder in a group. But still I 'paid' for the experiment the next day when I got a sort of muscle spasm in my arthritic hip. Tells me I probably still overdid it.
I will probably go back to the class but try to be EVEN more careful and mindful... and discuss the problem with the teachers seeing if she can help.

I forgot how sore I get when I become active and I'm finding out the longer I've been away from exercising, the stiffer I am!

Just going for walks will make my joints angry! I realize I have to take it slowly as I've been away from any activity in ages ~ discovered the less I did, the less pain I was in BUT the boredom and weight gain was not acceptable nor healthy.l

How do you deal with constant pain AND exercising? Pain was the biggest reason for stopping ~ any help will be greatly appreciated.

Artie is in the hands these days so typing and on computer is limited too ~ forgive me if I don't answer back right away.

Thanks in advance ~ hope your having a great day!
