(This is the third in a series of interviews with the top women fitness bloggers I could find!)
Sally has a great blog at InDenialHealth.com. She uses humor, experience and good advice to help motivate and encourage people to change to a healthier lifestyle.
I asked Sally the following questions about her blog:
1) Why did you decide to start your blog or how did you start it?
Actually, my blog started out life in another form as a health and technology site. This came about due to my profession as an e-health administrator. What we started to notice was that our stories on health and trying to find motivation were really popular. Our technology stories eventually gave way and we made the big decision to start a new site with a new name and new direction. This coincided with me getting older and realizing that I’m finding it harder to stay motivated with my health journey. In actual fact, aging is probably one of the most important motivational factors we have to getting fit and healthy but for most women it’s put on their list of *Must Do’s*!
2) What do you think is the biggest obstacle that keeps women from engaging in a regular fitness routine and/or from living a more healthy lifestyle in general?
Themselves. Women put everyone and everything before their own wants and needs. Kids, partners, work, home and family are all more important to them and that’s why we are so amazing!
Unfortunately, we are wired this way as part of a primal instinct to protect. This can be very challenging living in a modern world and I think many women put the thought of their health in the back of their minds and just hope that nothing bad happens. And it works for a while, until it doesn’t anymore. The irony is that the very best thing we can do for our family is to make sure we are well, happy and healthy.
3) What do you consider to be the most unique or helpful thing about your blog?
Our blog is a little different in that we recognize for many people, being healthy or coming to terms with a health condition can be challenging and often people try and live in denial, hence the name!
We hope that indenialhealth.com can provide information that is helpful to others without all the hype that you often find on health related sites. Our wish is that we can really connect with people who are either coming to terms with the need to be healthy or those who are still working towards making positive change.
