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.

How has retirement changed your fitness and nutrition.

Have you used the additional time to fit in more exercise? More computer time?

More social eating?

There is no such thing as the final success in life. What is really meaningful is the courage to face the next minute, the next hour, the next day.
