The Disabled Diva’s Winter Workout Challenge
If you haven’t participated in one of my fitness challenges, you are missing out! Everyone is eligible to participate no matter what their physical abilities may be. The point of my challenges is not to compete against others, but to motivate and encourage everyone to move their bodies. Although I refused to believe it several years ago, physical activity really does help reduce the pain I experience from fibromyalgia, psoriasis, degenerative disc disease, and psoriatic arthritis. Each challenge ends with prizes. Winners are not chosen by how much they were able to do or by how did the most. Those who participate are put into a drawing and earn entries in various ways.

Winter Workout Challenge
This month’s challenge is 3 weeks, 21 days long. It begins 12:01am January 7, 2019 and ends at 11:59pm January 27, 2019. Unlike the last three months, this challenge will also include those who aren’t counting their steps. However, those who are counting steps and/or activity with a fitness tracker and post those results will earn extra entries for the drawing. Don’t have a fitness tracker?
