It feels like exercise for me has to be a balancing act between pain and progress. Every time I try to push my exercise to the next level, I pay the price with severe pain in my right hip. I have moderately severe osteoarthritis. Right now, I am sitting here wanting to take a Zumba class yet knowing if I do, with all those lateral movements I may injure myself. I am hurting at the moment and finding it hard to climb stairs. My fear is, if I don't exercise as much I will start to gain weight. I am 3 pounds up in weight and the problem is my sister is seeing my trainer to weigh in on Monday and I am sure she will want to weigh me as well. So, you see my conundrum I want to push my level of fitness but my body is telling me no today. I never dreamed I would actually want to exercise and be blocked by my own body. It is very frustrating to say the least.
