Things to consider
Avoid injuring while exercising. Start an easy activity so that you need not try too much. Begin with walking a few minutes, several times a day. Increase the time and intensity, such that the speed and time are increased over weeks.
Trying too hard initially may result in sprain or muscle strain. If so, you have to wait for it to heal before pursuing the exercising program.
After meals. Wait one hour to two, before starting vigorous exercises.
