Exercise Psychology Thought-Stops
NAME: __Darah Van Vranken_

1. Strategies
make your exercise routine apart of your day. make a blocked off time where you will always go and work out. working out in the morning will give you more stamina to finish the day off. give your self a goal to help you get motivated. look at pictures. make sure this is something you are doing for your self not for someone else.

2. Barriers
Being married, seeing there dad as being over weight, hispanic, high blood pressure, diabetes, being motivated.

3. Death by running
Running was not the cause of his death because other factors could have been invloved such as the enviroment, and his normal health after he lost 50 lbs.

4. TPB components
postitve attitude
there subjective norm was that it was common in there culture for them to be over weight and it was frowned upon if they were too skinny. strong intentions were to get thin for there families to play with there children and not be tired out in the end from playing. and also to have better health.

5. Association / dissociation
1. I would recommend dissociated strategies. this will help with your surroundings and how to work with them in exercising. 2. I would choose association strategies because it is focusing on your body and the person will be self- monitoring.

1. Precontemplation ("couch potato") stage:
looking for activities that are fun and exciting. also planing it into your schedule
