Since we've been back here at the house, I hate to admit it, but our eating and exercise habits have been for crap. In my heart, I think we both don't want to be here so much that we just enable each other in our bad habits. I'm much worse than Terry but we both are in much worse shape than when we were on the road.
While everyone else seems to love it here, it's really not our cup of tea anymore. When we're out on the road, it seems so much easier to regulate our food. And we want to walk, always something new to see. Here, not so much. When I was still working, I would drive down to the beach four times a week and walk along West Cliff Drive, but now, if we take the time, we can't seem to come back and get anything done.
A few days ago, we were talking bout it and decided it was time to finally buckle down. We're back on the straight and narrow food wise (which for us means cutting out sugar and most starches, basically low carb). This leaves us with what to do about exercise.
While clearing the house, we've re-discovered a set of DVDs called Walk Away the Pounds. This is a set we had some success with years ago and we've decided it's a good place to start. The beginning volume has you briskly walking one mile in twenty minutes, including warm up and cool down. The set continues till you're up to three miles.
For a few days now, we've been walking a mile, and hopefully, this will set us on the road to regular exercise. Within a few weeks we should be up to the three mile walk. Then, hopefully, exercise will once again be a part of our routines.
So tell, me, what do you do to stay in shape while you're on the road?
Wish us luck!
