Track Your Steps
Exercise is an important part of my pain management plan. Inactivity only increases the pain I experience from fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, and degenerative disc disease. To keep myself accountable, I created a fitness buddy group on Facebook. We are a diverse group of people of various ages and physical abilities. We encourage and motivate each other to reach our goals.
Tracking steps is great for losing weight, challenging yourself, and to learn how to recognize your limits. In my fitness buddy group I host monthly competitions. Truly the only person you are competing with is yourself, but everyone who participates is entered into a drawing. Click here to join our current step challenge.
Below is the drug-free pain relief device that has made reaching my daily step goal possible and fitness trackers to fit every budget.
