I've been exercising for a long time and I train for long distance riding, so it's a little different, I think, for me.
But for anyone who is starting, don't feel like you have to exercise as much as I do, do what you can and slowly improve your health. If you're feeling like exercising is stressing you out, figure out if it's because you haven't found the right sport or routine or if it's because you're pushing yourself too hard.
The last thing you need is to injure yourself or hate moving your body because you're running when what you really like is to dance!
And if you get bored easily, try different things. I've gone through periods of my exercise routine where one day I was belly dancing, another day I was doing Zumba, the next day it was Spinning, the day after that Pilates, and then Yoga... I needed variety then... you may need it too.
As long as you're moving, you're burning some of that excess glucose off and you're allowing your body to be more insulin sensitive. And it's good for your blood pressure, your cholesterol, your muscles, your bones, and your depression.
