'I Count(TM): 10 Simple Steps to a Healthy Life': Time and Money-Strapped Americans Find Balance, Better Health with New Book
Date:2/26/2009

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- There are some people who seem to have it all: success in a career, a great outlook on life, a sleek physique ... an all-around "glow." While it may seem that luck is always on their side, the key to their success is a tried-and-true model: set a goal and work to achieve it. "I Count(TM): 10 Simple Steps to a Healthy Life" (published by iUniverse) reveals that by applying this concept to health and fitness goals, dramatic results will be achieved.

Authored by two former high-profile professionals, the book speaks to career-oriented individuals through the program's STAR(TM) Process, encouraging followers to Set, Track, Achieve and Reward daily wellness goals. Like a successful business model, the program focuses on meeting daily metrics, holding the reader personally accountable for making this daily goal.

The heart of the program is walking -- a low-impact, inexpensive exercise that can be done just about anywhere. Teeming with compelling statistics on the power of walking, "I Count(TM)" encourages readers to set and track goals measured in steps, achieved by walking, running, biking or any number of exercises. In addition, the book provides realistic, affordable tips on health topics from nutrition to finding others to support your goals. Co-authors Susan Parks and Patricia Bonavia share tips, tools and best practices to make the journey a success -- without having to devote countless hours and dollars.

"Fitness can be achieved, no matter how busy and budget-constrained you are," said Susan Parks, co-author of "I Count(TM)" and Founder/CEO of WalkStyles, Inc. "When I started working 15-plus-hour days, I made a commitment to myself to walk 10,000 steps each day. I made this happen each and every day, and through this, found fitness, balance and focus." Parks engaged her co-author Patricia Bonavia to track her steps and the two began to compare their progress. "Even with my responsibilities of leading a financial institution and being the mother of two, I found setting wellness goals gave me the discipline to do something healthy for myself each day," Bonavia said.
