When Data Reveals Truth Like A Slap In The Face

Bookmark and Share

Sometimes I need a good hard slap in the face to see the truth. 

My Apple Health Data revealed how truly miserable of a situation I was in and it may have even saved my life.

My health plummeted in August

This may be the shortest blog post I've ever written! 
When having to discuss certain real-life situations I've been dealing as of late, I keep it really short and simple - I show my Health app dashboard. I don't have to say another word. 

You can pretty much pin-point where the balance in my life started to spiral downward based on my activity level, you can see exactly when it hit bottom, and exactly when it started to get better. I was pretty much stagnant from late May - early June through the end of August, probably no surprise that my body started to deteriorate at that time. And since late September, I've been doing much better.

When I look at this picture, I am so grateful for the events that transpired in September and look forward to getting my health, and my life, back on track! I'm in physical therapy and I've been making an effort to exercise. For the first time in a long time I can see the horizon again - and not just a computer monitor.

I know (or I hope) I will never make the same choices I made in the past.
