Doctor Elaine Husni is a rheumatologist at Cleveland Clinic.
She says to find the exercise that's right for you, and keep going.

Kids and blood pressure
The number of children in hospitals due to high blood pressure has nearly doubled in the past decade.
University of Michigan researchers say not only are more children being diagnosed with hypertension.
These kids also cost more to treat - and stay longer in the hospital.
Up to three percent of U.S. children have high blood pressure, much of which is related to obesity.
The CDC says about a third of kids between two and nineteen are overweight.

The apple tops the list of the dirtiest produce you can buy.
That's according to the environmental working group's annual "dirty dozen" report.
The report is based on highest in pesticide residue.
The department of agriculture and the FDA tested samples as they normally would be eaten after being washed or peeled.
Celery earned the number two spot on the list.
As for the cleanest produce, onions and sweet corn took the top spots.
