This q/a on posture will give you some good exercises to help counterbalance sitting all day. Bodyweight exercises, Resistance bands or suspension straps, and kettlebells are all good for small indoor spaces.

After an injury, a physical therapist can be a good person direct you and help you prepare to return to activity. You may need some rehab type of exercises before returning to your resistance training.

comment Stretches for long periods of sitting
You should find helpful information in this back injury prevention q/a and this sitting posture q/a including stretching, strengthening, and postural exercises. As previously pointed out flexibility is only part of the answer. Strengthening for stability, stretching for flexibility, and proper postural alignment are all important to having a balanced spine and pelvis.

comment Is slow-paced cardio enough?
This question/answer may help to give you the kind of info you are looking for re exercise recommendations. It includes links to the Borg perceived exertion scale and the Karvonen Formula to calculate your target heart rate. These will help you assess your workout levels. You may also be interested in pool running which allows for HIIT without bothering knees.

The x in p90x stands for extreme so if you have "never done any exercise before" you may want to consider p90 without the x. Other programs you may consider. Also, check out some previous q/a: Losing fat, Losing weight

comment slouched shoulders get better when i open my hands
I asked because when you open your palms and "roll your thumbs out" away from your body, it tends to bring your scapula (shoulder blades) down and back which opens up the chest. But otherwise I don't know why opening the palms without correcting the scapula makes a difference. In addition to the answer you got, you may get some helpful exercises for posture from this question/answer.

comment Endurance activities and carbohydrates: when are they needed
I don't have the expertise to answer your question directly, but I think you might find, "The Art and Science to Low Carbohydrate Performance" helpful and informative. They point out that with keto-adaptation "carbs can be reduced to an optional nutrient for athletes" as the body stores about 2000kcal of carbs compared to >40,000 kcal of fat. They also discuss the use of VESPA, a fat burning fuel catalyst useful for prolonged events. (Note - the link to the book is from our site's amazon store.)

Have you worked with a registered dietician to address your diet? Given that you have hyperthyroidism you should have individualized diet instruction imo.
