Intersex” is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn't seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male.
An intersex is born with a combination of male and female biological characteristics, such as chromosomes or genitals, that can make doctors unable to assign their sex as distinctly male or female.
Some features peculiar to intersex individuals
* External genitals that cannot be easily classified as male or female. * Incomplete or unusual development of the internal reproductive organs.
* Inconsistency between the external genitals and the internal reproductive organs.
* Abnormalities of the sex chromosomes.
* Abnormal development of the testes or ovaries.
* Over- or underproduction of sex-related hormones.
* Inability of the body to respond normally to sex-related hormones.

Process goals > Outcome goals
Making a positive change to your health and lifestyle doesn’t just happen, if you want to lose 3 stone or be able to run a 10km you don’t just wake up 6 months later and it has happened, you have to make changes every day to move you towards your outcome goal.
The day to day habits you change can be achieved by setting process goals as seen in the picture. Process goals are the bricks that build the house.
However sometimes those process goals can be just as challenging if not more so than the main outcome goal and when this is the case often or not nothing gets done and the goals are never met.
What I do with my own clients and what I advise other PT’s to do with theirs is to simplify those goals further.
A question I ask is “On a scale of 1-10 how confident are you that you can do this on a daily basis”
If the answer is not a 9 or 10 I will move on to my next question...”how can we make it so simple it is a 9 or a 10”
At that point the person will be able to adjust and manage their habits based on their confidence level and skill set.
This allows for far greater adherence and a higher success rate than if you just took their initial answer.
Habits and process goals can then be tracked using a habit diary.
