Since I had to have VERY, VERY, minor surgery, last Monday and was told to do no exercise until my stitches come out, I have been compliant and stayed away from the gym and only walked 1 time, for 50 minutes and taught 1 exercise class.

I am MUCH more sore and achy than if I had continued to lift weights and did my 23 miles of walking, which I normally do each week.

The bottom line, for ME, at least, is DON'T avoid exercise because you're in pain. Exercise may be the answer to your problem.

I can't wait until I can get back to gym and get rid these aches and pains that have cropped up in the last few days.

    Use it or lose it is soooo true. Keep doing what you can and I know you'll get back to your former exercise loving self.

    Grace, I agree! Use it or Lose it. I feel so much better when I exercise. Granted, my lifting comes from farm activity and not the gym, and my upper body work-out comes from shoveling be it mulch or hay. But I count this as a blessing. I'm ready to push mow the lawn---we've had a lot of sunny - warm days of recent.

    Blessings to you.

    I agree. I would think that if you have always exercised, you should at least do lighter exercises until you can get back to your normal routine. Thanks for the information.
