This is going to be the complimentary thread to "Nonnies and Obesity" --
Have your say, everyone! What do you notice about your exercise and fitness? Does it take more concentrated effort....or take longer to achieve what you need? Any special tips/techniques you would like to list here? *putting my hands together, praying that you DO*.....

PS: Do you find you need to CLEANSE FREQUENTLY that part of your body Dr. D'Adamo says is weak according to your Genotype, to further your success? (mine is the Explorer ever-lovin' liver)

my blood pressure and resting heart rate are really low, so for me to get to my target heart rate is really difficult. in addition, it takes me a long time to break a sweat. I just don't sweat that much!

overall though, i do respond well to exercise when i commit to it - min 4x / week for 30-50 minutes usually does it for me.

I'm not really sure what being a nonnie has to do with exercise.   :-/  I have to force myself to exercise, even though I'm more motivated to do it (I finally joined a gym I like) than I have been in a long time, but once I'm done I do feel great, with better energy and mood.  I get ravenously hungry later, so I have to watch that or I will grab whatever is around.  I try not to keep "bad" foods around.

I just need to be careful whenever I resume exercise. It's all too easy to push myself into another fibro-flare. Yes, I do need regular exercise, but I also need to stop before I feel like I've pushed my body too far. I'd rather err on the side of exercising too little than push myself and get even sicker.

I don't blame you, Ruthie.  Do you think some very gentle yoga would help you?  Or would it just stimulate a flare up?

Yoga I can probably handle, and I know which poses to avoid doing. My biggest complaint with some yoga videos is that they rely too heavily on poses with the head below the waist; so I spend a lot of time just standing there doing nothing during the workout, and then I don't get the full benefit of the exercise (such as low back still being tight) because I couldn't do half the exercises and they didn't offer an alternate way to exercise those muscles that would have been safe for me. I even own a yoga DVD, purchased for DD1. I just have to find the time to actually do it, when the living room floor is clear enough to work out in. That combination hasn't occurred yet.

I find that since I stopped using the car for everything, my fitness has improved a lot, walking to local shops, walking to the park instead of driving to it, that sort of thing. The miles soon add up, my legs were aching the other day lol
