Get Healthy Now Wellness Center Member of the Month - March
Congratulations to Dave Funk for being Get Healthy Now’s Member of the Month for March. This month’s theme is Healthy Nutrition. Keep reading to learn more about how Dave’s uses healthy habits to keep him motivated while pursuing his health journey.
Dave has worked at U of L for 6 ½ years as an Assistant Director of Student Records in the Registrar’s Office. He specifically remembers his first week because it was during the flood in August of 2009. His favorite hobbies are working out and writing.
Within the last 6 months, Dave was able to achieve one of his fitness goals by running and completing his first half-marathon. He is motivated to complete another half marathon in the near future. Dave also strives to maintain his health improvements by establishing healthy eating habits.
In relation to March’s wellness theme of Healthy Nutrition, Dave improved his eating habits by doing the Whole 30/Paleo Food Plan, which cuts down on all or most processed foods. He admits that he has gotten better at cutting down on processed foods, but plans to step it up in 2017.
What keeps Dave coming back to the GHN Wellness Center? “My mental well-being is what keeps me coming back. It’s my bit of daily recess and stress relief. I love the InCycle classes. I hate it about 10-15 minutes in, but when I’m done, I feel incredibly accomplished.”
What’s on Dave’s “Bucket List”? Dave wants to write and publish his own novel and hopes that it’s actually good.
Hip-hip-hooray to March’s Member of the Month, Dave Funk!
