I just realized how that title might be misconstrued -- LOL! What I'm trying to say is that I am having much better luck with some types of exercise than with others. Almost two months ago, I started juicing for 1 or 2 meals a day. It has worked well for me in that I have lost about 25 lbs. to date. My doctor asked me if I was having increased energy, but I had to tell him no (the juicing was my idea, not his). My cognitive situation seems to have cleared some -- and I'm not as inclined to feeling as sleepy in mid-afternoon. I still have 'fatigue', however, so am still taking naps. One thing that has changed is that I have started going to the pool after lunch to do some laps. I've always loved swimming and am happy to be in the water again. It keeps me a little cooler than a workout OUT of the water, although I am still quite warm when I am done with my laps. My routine was 10 laps for a couple of weeks, then 12, then I was up to 15 laps three or four times a week. I've been careful to stay as 'horizontal' as possible -- doing only strokes that keep my arms and legs even with my heart, or below it. So I do the breast stroke, the side stroke, and the 'lazy' version of the back stroke. No crawl, butterfly or 'real' backstroke. I wasn't trying to break records, just to move and exercise. My routine takes about 20 to 25 minutes. The hardest part is getting out of the pool. To date, I have had *no* problems with post-exertional malaise from any of this. So this past week, I didn't feel like going to the pool, so I decided to pull out the Wii Fit that I haven't been on for over a year. I did about 20 minutes worth of games/exercises. And yes, I was *vertical* while doing these. The next day, I slept over 16 hours and went to bed two hours early. I made it through a morning of work today, but spent the afternoon in bed, sleeping. It has taken *48 HOURS* for me to recover enough to feel like myself again. In the beginning, I thought it might be that the swimming kept me cooler (I have serious issues with heat), but I live in Florida, and after a couple of laps, the water feels warm enough to make me think I'm swimming in my own sweat (yeah, gross, I know). So I can only think it is a position-related thing. I think we need more horizontal exercises.
