3 EXCELLENT Reasons not to Exercise

My husband is always after me to exercise. In Southern California it’s difficult to use weather as an excuse so I have to use CreativitytotheMAX

1.  Fibromyalgia Brain Fog:

  • “What!? It’s midnight already!? I was just about ready to go for my walk”;
  • “Are you sure? I could swear I exercised today”;
  • “I couldn’t walk today. I locked myself in.”;
  • “What do you mean the doctor stressed exercise?! I could swear she told me not to stress over exercise.”

It’s difficult to keep up with Brain Fog excuses because I forget them.  So I moved on to bigger and better reasons.  My body is always cooperating.

2.  Heart Problems

When I began to get light-headed on my walks and it wasn’t  the heat, lack of food or dehydration. It was my heart arrhythmia. NOW I really had a good reason not to exercise.

It was heart arrhythmia that led to my getting Tullulah, My pacemaker.
The cardiologist said “Absolutely exercise is fine now.

(in case you missed my heart arrhythmia “story” here are the 3 main posts)

3.  Foot Problems

My body, bless its little heart (pun intended) continues to cooperate.  These last few months my foot has REALLY hurt.  The doctor says it’s joint inflamation leading to nerve entrapment.
NOW THIS IS AN EXCUSE if I ever had one.  I limped everywhere, grimacing wildly so my husband could make NO mistake that it was too painful to exercise.
He bought me a folding recumbent bike.

Come to think about it, I actually get a lot of exercise running out of reasons.
