How much is enough? Who knows for any one person because every person is different. I have taken the following position: I will not exercise on the days I don’t have PD…. Thus, every day.
I use Fitbit step monitoring with a daily goal of 10,000 steps/day (about 5 miles) or 70,000 steps per each 7-day period. Yes, I also go to RockSteady (helped start a program in Mississippi) as well as a Peleton cycling and weights program. Fitbit is a wonderful tracking mechanism that I recommend (no financial interests). ???Anyone interested in a HealthUnlocked “club” of PWP where we can monitor each other via their app??
I am “celebrating” 6 years since formal diagnosis with daily exercise; PD gives me nuisance problems such as shuffling, bradykinesia, tremors… enjoying every day of the honeymoon.
I am “cerebrating” 6 years since formal diagnosis with the stimulus of writing. My next book… due January… carries the title Day Trading with My Hebrew Uncle. My first book was King David: Parkinson’s First Hero. I will make them all four free as e-books on Amazon in January when my new book is done-done.
My earlier career was in oncologic/laparoscopic surgery.
Priorities in management are Attitude, Exercise, then Meds
