I am more disciplined now than when working. I'm just about forced to exercise daily in order to pull my step count up to near what it was when I was working. I have the time to more carefully track nutrition as well and do much better with that now. I don't rely nearly so much on convenience (junk) foods. Although I haven't really fully exercised the privilege, I now have the time to be more adventuresome in my walks. We are surrounded by mountains and many, many trails that I want to take advantage of. I need to find a walking/hiking partner for those escapades though for safety's sake. We are fortunate to have a lot of safe walking areas in our town including a few miles of rail-trail, so I stick to those so far since they are well traveled and if I did flop over I'd be found quickly. Not so on the Appalachian Trail and the many side trails. Now the trick is to live long enough to enjoy the freedom.
