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.
