  1. Notes: Data are means (SD) or amount (%). All p’s > .05. 95% CI PMD 95% CI Mean Difference. Only pre-test numbers were assessed for covariate analysis. Frequency of exercise was measured on a 5-point Likert scale ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree. Alcohol usage was measured by number of days per week. Social ladder perception, motivation to change, and expectation to change were measured in scores between 1 and 10. Compliance is the number of days participants answered the daily surveys
