    After having people drive by and yell "hey fat girl!" and other obscenities while I was walking and trying to workout, I can definitely understand your anxiety. I started going to the gym when I knew most people would be at work or late in the evenings when I knew they would be at home. I was inconveniencing myself because of what people might say to me and I had to realize that I was working out and getting healthy for me. One thing that really helped was listening to music while working out. It made me relax and focus on getting the most out my workout. I don't know if you like Beyonce, but her upbeat songs were made for workouts lol I wish you the best of luck on your journey.

    I know how you feel, I feel awkward when I am out in front of people, I feel like I walk funny, or when I'm run/walking my posture is bad and I look silly when I can't run for long...but today I did something different. My Mother in Law moved recently. She gave me her mini trampoline and her 5lb weights. I got on there with the weights in hand, while the others in the house were asleep. (They laugh at me, so I REALLY don't want to exercise in front of them) and I kind of jogged while I lifted the weights and I could feel my leg and arm muscles being worked, and my heart rate increased. (I need to find my heart rate monitor) I was afraid I would make noise and wake people up, but it was nice and quiet. I only did this for a little while, then I did some things around the house, then I got on there again for a little while, and I felt totally comfortable. My Mother in Law had both hip and knee replacements, and she used it,(more for walking in place I think)- mini trampolines are low impact, so maybe it wouldn't cause you as much pain? They aren't expensive, and I can lean it up against the wall when not in use, so it wouldn't take up too much room in your apartment either. I plan to keep getting on there a little longer each time, maybe ten minutes at a time, 3 times a day or something like that. maybe I'll start a blog about it emoticon

    So proud of you for going for a bike ride and facing you anxiety! and dancing too! I totally understand though, I feel the same way - like everyone is looking at me when I walk or I worry that some jerks are going to shout you mean things to be as they drive by. I hope that you feel better soon, you need a day to relax and let your body recover! Your doing do great though, I love watching your vlogs - keep up the awesome work.
