Exercise is not an option for me. If I don't exercise, it's back to the wheelchair. What a motivator!
I have an incurable neuro disease called RSD (or CRPS) which causes severe pain in your limbs and your muscles atrophy. It's a fairly rare disease but more common than MS although most people aren't aware of it.
I can keep my pain levels tolerable by taking my meds and exercising daily. If I skip exercise for more than a few days my pain triples!! It keeps me off the couch.

Just wondering what types of exercise you do. I did more walking yesterday and today going to doctor appointments and my feet, knees, hips and back are screaming in pain because of it.

I think I should exercise, even sitting exercise videos, more. Like every day. instead of every week. Lazy holding me back. Pixie luscious suggested doing today things our future self will thank us for. Got to change my lazy ways.

What do you do for fun? Just looking for ideas. I feel like I don't do anything just for fun anymore.

Okay, okay, you're the second person mentioning my "Thoughts and/or Inspiration of the Day". I've been on holidays and I go between my two daughters' homes. Not easy!!! I promise to put some thoughts down pronto. emoticon
