    First, find something supportive you'll be able to lean into, such as a wall. Then, place your foot about two to three foot-lengths behind you. Keeping your back foot straight, your back leg straight, and your back heel on the ground, lean foward toward the wall until you feel tension in the back

    1. Karen LaPlant I love my Fitbit. It makes me accountable. When I first got it I decided I would do exactly what I normally do to see how much activity I was getting. I was blown away. I had days that I worked 12 hours and knew that I had done what needed to be done. When I checked my tracker, I had only gone a little over 1000 steps for the day. That's a little less than a 1/2 mile for me. Crazy! In July, I decided to challenge myself and do 5 miles a day. I am happy to say that I am on my 87th day in a row of 5 miles or more. I love this. It fits on my bra so I don't even know that its there. I have 4 people that I challenge. I would love to challenge more.
