I have cervical spine "issues" and I live a lot of my life in pain. So, what's happened to me over time, and to a lot of people who have conditions like mine, is that I've become sedentary. Because it hurts to move around, I don't. I sit a lot. That builds on itself, of course, so I've become increasingly unfit, and increasingly unlikely to move around. That makes me cranky, antsy, and generally off my game (just ask my family.)
I'm pleased to be taking this challenge along with people I work with. I'm a long long way from 10,000 steps a day, but I'm wearing my pedometer, and will keep you posted on my progress. Right now I'm squarely in the beginner category, but I'm hoping to stick with it.
Wish me Luck!
