|Description||Description of ANTLER pilot intervention: a 6 week intensive program which combines the following goals - Ability of participants to utilize a smart phone application for self-monitoring behavior change of physical activity, fruit/vegetable consumption, and sleep. This would include entering data on fruit/vegetable consumption, hours of sleep and monitoring feedback. - Ability of participants to wear Actigraph accelerometer 24 hours/day and complete a sleep log for measurement of physical activity and sleep. - Ability of Nutrition Data System for Research (NDSR) software to collect adequate nutrition data. The intervention is a unique combination of two individual counseling sessions and the utilization of a combination of a smartphone application and the use of a Fitbit physical activity monitor. The individual sessions will provide a tailored personalized intervention including problem-solving and goal setting for increasing physical activity, consumption of more fruits and vegetables, and getting more sleep. Healthy Lifestyle Coaches (RN or Exercise Physiologist) will be responsible for conducting the individual sessions for a limited caseload of participants. Individual sessions will - utilize motivational interviewing techniques to enhance motivation for meeting individualized physical activity, dietary/nutritional and sleep goals - identify specific barriers and supports leading to tailored intervention to increase program success (The Arthritis Comprehensive Treatment Assessment) - provide emotional support Self-monitoring of behavior change - On a daily basis, participants will log fruit/vegetable consumption and hours of sleep via a smartphone application and receive feedback - On a daily basis, participants will monitor their physical activity via the Fitbit and receive feedback on the smartphone. Online activities will include communication between the client and coach in between and after scheduled intervention visits.|
