My rheumatologist is always on my case about exercise. Losin weight, too, which I'm trying to do. She didn't seem to notice when I saw her this morning that I'd lost fifteen pounds, but that's another story.
Anyway, she asked if I'd been exercising. I said not in a formal sense, but I have to hustle and get up and down a lot keeping up with my four-year-old. I'm not getting much cardio, but I'm keeping my joints and muscles moving. I've also been doing some sit-ups.
What she said surprised me. She didn't go into the regular speech about twenty minutes of cardio three or four times a week. She said she wouldn't call doing sit-ups or chasing a four-year-old around exercise because it didn't give me a chance to decompress and take time for myself while I was at it. What's she talking about? I can take time for myself gabbing on CM.
So when you exercise, is it a chance to decompress and take time for yourself? Is the doctor onto something?
