Thanks for the reminder, Beth. I have not been doing it much since I have been flaring but I would like to try to do some at least. I hope the others are sticking with it. I usually feel better once I do it, it's just getting up the energy to start that is the problem. Also having 20 trips to the bathroom doesn't help :(

An avid gym go-er until i lost all energy and was always out of breath. Diagnosed soon after that. A year later, thank G-d, the energy is back though motivation needs some help.

When i go i use the treadmill (elliptical is too much bouncing and jostling on joints)
and leg, ab, arm machines too.

Good luck with your gym routine!

I love working out,especially running, but just like you guys, sometimes the energy isn't there or my joints are sore. I guess my stubbornness rules on the days I am on the treadmill and I am yawning 8)

I just bought one of those glider things off of ebay (cheap compared to what they cost in the store) it'll be a new form of both cardio and lower toning/strengthening (from the butt down) it's similar to skating, skaters have the tightest buns and best shaped legs because of I'm looking forward because routines can get boring (been exercising for 6 yrs now) and it's nice to throw something new into the mix...I think it'll be a blast especially compared to the stationary bike, jump rope and jumping jacks and the punching bag (which is a great stress reliever by the way).

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
