Combat muscle soreness


Hi ladies ! I have been dealing with chronic illness since I was about 17. Lupus runs in my family (my mom , some aunts , and grandma all have it). The way things look right now it seems like I’m headed down the same path. With that being said , I’m trying to take care of myself and exercise more. I can’t do anything to strenuous because it’s difficult for me but I have started doing Pilates. Whenever I try to start exercising regularly I get so so sore afterwards and it makes me give up. I know why I’m sore of course , as I’m working muscles in a new way and my body is trying to adjust , but how can I ease the soreness ?? I really want to keep up with my exercise for once !! 🙁
