Cady Jones

Description of me

My name is Cady Jones I am an Elementary Education major with a concentration in Math. I am from Overland Park, KS

To me my family is the most important thing and I love them dearly. I have a young son named Braxton who just recently turned one and I spend all spare time with him.

As a family sports are a big deal whether we are watching them or playing them we love doing it together.

What Physical Activity is to Me

I do enjoy Physical activity, however I am not someone who enjoys going to the gym. I prefer to get my physical exercise through sports or fun activity of some kind. I am always more motivated in physical activity when someone is with me to help push me. Sports have been a big way I got my physical activity because I loved the competition and it always pushed me to go and work harder.

I think I am this way because from as early as I can remember my parents always stressing and emphasizing the importance of being physically active. They always encouraged me and my siblings to get involved in sports and to play outside rather then to watch tv or something.

Over the years my habits have changed a lot. I no longer the the sports I always did when I was growing up. I think thats because of no longer having the time being a student, working and being a mom i just don't have the time like I used to. Now my physical activity is going on walks with my son and playing with him.

When I was younger I definitely think our SES was a factor. I was fortunate enough to have parents who could afford to have us kids playing multiple sports not all parents could afford that. Now I think my busy schedule is what plays a role in the amount and type of physical activity.
