If you’ve read my blogs or follow trend-able on social media, then you already know that I love pilates and truly believe that having a strong core has helped me to slow down the progression of my disease and compensate for nerve damage. Since my ankles are fused (no motion), it’s hard to keep traditional pilates reformer straps on my feet.

Fitbits are obviously not a new thing, but I love my Fitbit HR2 as it keeps me moving. This one tracks not just my steps, but also my heart rate, calories and even hours and quality of my sleep. I can read text messages from the screen and I love that it says, ”Lainie, start moving” when I’ve been sedentary too long. I change out the band for the bracelet style with magnetic closure one in the ”accessories” section of ”Look Good”.
A Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a form of therapy that uses a low-voltage electrical current to relieve pain. It is connected to wires that conduct an electrical current through self-adhesive massage pads. These pads are placed on an area of pain, and a circuit of electrical impulses travel along the nerve fibers. TENS devices are used as a non-invasive nerve stimulation intended to reduce both acute and chronic pain. Many people living with chronic pain use a TENS machine as an alternative to medication and report significant relief from using them. This one pictured has some of the best reviews in the market.
