4 Opportunities for Change  Work 8 hours instead of 10 hours daily so that I am not too tired once at home to exercise.  Watch 1 local news program and 1 national news program for total of 1 hour day versus 2 hours day.  Move television into den with treadmill to watch news programs.  Park farther away from building at work to walk more during the day.  Take stairs at work instead of elevator.  Use Cardiac Rehab treadmill on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Dave at the hospital and then shower and prepare for work at the hospital where I am also employed.  Visit museums and exhibits in D.C. on weekends to incorporate more walking exercise in weekend activities.

5 Environmental Changes Chosen for Implementation  Television was moved to Den so that I could walk on the treadmill while watching the news programs.  Parked at the back of the parking lot to get more walking exercise at work.  Took stairs at work instead of elevator.  Tuesdays and Thursdays – went to work at 6:30 and used the Cardiac Rehab treadmill with my partner, showered at hospital to prepare for work, and went to work at 8:00.  Visited D.C. museums and exhibits twice monthly on weekends to incorporate more exercise into weekends.

8 Exercise Graph and Progress

9 Conclusion Changes implemented to incorporate consistent exercise were successful as evidenced by 6 weeks of data. Major changes were:  Television was moved to den to view while walking on treadmill.  Exercised at hospital with my partner 2 days a week in the morning, showered and prepared for work while there.  Car was parked farther from work. This evolved to parking farther from my apartment and farther away from stores.  Decreased work hours from 10 hours a day to 8 hours a day so that I wasn’t too tired to exercise and had more time to myself.  Incorporated new weekend activities twice a month to obtain more exercise on the weekends.
