I must admit that yes, I have been caught up in this latest craze of activity trackers. Initially I wanted one to track my sleep patterns (and I will share what I found in another post regarding sleep, hormones and weight gain) but have found myself data collecting with regards to my movement patterns and steps walked.
I set my goal at 12,000 steps. I thought "easy!!. I'm on the go and have a physical job"...NOT SO... On the days I worked yet still trained lifting my weights I would only manage MAYBE 7,000 steps. It dawned upon me that in my mind my job was physical, (yes I love moving all my patients around) but I didn't move that much. I HAVE A SEDENTARY JOB!..WHAT!...Here I am teaching all of you people how important movement is for your back and neck pain and here I am sitting more than I am moving. Well, I have been using myself as an experiment and this is what I have found.
