Hi everyone, new here so just introducing myself.
I'm Kat, and I'm from north East Scotland. I've had numerous spinal surgeries and procedures over the past 7 years which have left me with chronic pain and Fibromyalgia amongst a list of other conditions too.
We have 3 dogs, which I can truly say has been a life changing thing for me. I'm out walking every day, and can total a minimum of 45 miles a week. It's by far easy, I had to learn how to walk again so every day is a challenge literally putting one foot in front of the other, but I keep going as best I can.
Last year I did a challenge for Arthritis Research UK, to walk 10,000 steps every day for the whole of September, and I smashed it (I wrote a blog post about it: wp.me/p5VgTs-rO).
I've also lost 2.5 stone over 18 months and I am now starting to build muscle too.
I'm by far the quickest walker but I do my best to keep going every day.
