Cool Staying fit and healthy on the road?

If it weren't for my companies in office gym I wouldn't be able to sustain this wineo/beer belly! What can ya do? I love my wine and microbreweries. I'm headed to Kuma's Corner after I leave the office for a killer burger and glass of draft Gumballhead American Wheat!

How do you all keep healthy and fit while on the road?

Still dreaming of that never ending road trip.

We take advantage of the nice walking paths at the rv parks. We try to go for mid morning walks and a evening walk after supper.

I do a lot of fork exercises with down, out and up motions lol Just joking. On a more serious note my wife and I also enjoy walking both early morning and evening.

To be frank. We should do more than we do. I like to eat and besides what Joseph mentioned. about the up down motions of a fork or spoon. I'm ashamed to admit I don't work out. Unless you call tossing in poker chips a work out?

If there is safe riding near, I ride my bicycle. Riding trails are the best. We also like to walk a mile or two every evening in or around the park.

I have been trying to do what I call exercise while traveling. I do know that it is easy to overlook doing things to keep physically fit while traveling. I do some simple stretches, along with some other easy body lifting exercises. Some are from old school days and some are just things that seem to work.

I guess you could do what my wife, daughter and son-in-law did and do a 10, 30 or 60 day juice fast. They all averaged over a pound a day during the deal and have held the weight down for two months now eating pretty what they want. The are going to do a 10 day about every 90 days to keep things detoxed and in balance. The program really works. The average American works for years to get out of shape and this is the healthiest way to play catch up. So either now or prior to going on the road or even on the road this can be done. You have to use a professional type juicer to get the packed concentrated nutrients.

Just a thought.

We have bikes with us and try to do 20-50 mile bike rides a few days per week, we did race bikes in past so distance is not the problem, you always find some great interesting roads where you stay! We fly fish and run our dogs on the trails, its the best way to stay fit and keep our dogs fit, hiking is another way we try to see new places and stay fit.

Our base hub is in Montana and it offers all the outdoors you could ask for.
