Spark Coach made me think today.

Friday, September 27, 2013

I'm not much of a "joiner" but the steps per day team was recommended so, I checked it out. I have become very sceptical and introverted so, I made myself write an introduction. When I finished writing, I realized that I just motivated myself - it's strange to feel like I made myself think so, I felt compelled to keep this entry where I can read it often:

Hello. My name is Yvonne and I have been doing horribly with my activity level. I just found out that I gsve a ridiculous number of food allergies that have caused me to gain 73% of my body weight since 2007. Of course, doctors told me that I was lying about walking 4 miles a day and eating a healthy diet so, I gave up a long time ago. I have very recently left the Army and am now embarking on a new career in healthcare (ironically, dietetics) so, I need to become more physically representative of my medical beliefs. I currently live in an area with no sidewalks but, I'm moving to my internship site in 2 weeks and there's sidewalks plus a trailhead only blocks from the apartment building so, I plan to enjoy the city trail system when weather permits. Right now, I'm working on relaxing and enjoying the walk instead of tracking time and/or distance like I did in the Army so, working on daily steps will be an easy, no pressure, approach to improving my activity and reducing stress simultaneously.

    Good for you! It takes courage to make a career change, and one in the health field, perhaps more so.
    You must be grateful to finally know what was the cause of your weight gain. Now you can do something about it.
    Enjoy your walks!
