I like to dance but I hate to wheeze

As if you can’t tell, work is slow right now. I don’t want to jinx myself, but it’s nice to have a brief break once in a while. And I have to say, I know that I’m lucky. I have a full-time job that has insurance, that I can do from home (even before coronavirus), that plays to my strong points of writing and routine. Although lots of things have slowed down for some people in terms of work, for me, well, my work has been like using a fire hose. That means, lots and lots of work over a 2 or 3-week period, followed by 2 or 3 days (at most) of work trickling in slowly, followed by 2 to 3 weeks of more work pouring in. I’ve even had to ask for help more than a few times. So, I’ve been busy most days, all day long, writing. By the end, my brain feels exhausted but my body is not.

What does this all have to do with anything? Well, I want to move more. But, I have two problems: I’m out of shape (desk job for over 3 years now) and when I get motivated to get going in anything resembling aerobically, my asthma says hell-wheeze-o. So, I hate aerobic exercise. I hate sounding like Jane Fonda with a bagpipe. Instead of just entering “exercise” in the YouTube search field, I’ve been looking at dancing and anything-but-aerobic exercise.
