This post RV Fitness is about how simple it is to lose weight and stay in shape while traveling.
Living in an RV has changed my perspective about fitness. I no longer believe in dieting or restrictive eating.
I think its bad for you in both your physical and mental health.
But, what I do believe in is moderation. Anything you can do in moderation is probably ok.
And, the definition of moderation that I am using is, the ability to do something within reasonable limits.
So, I eat what I want…within reasonable limits.
I walk, go to yoga, pilates, the chiropractor and I get regular massages. I do these things because I had a back injury years ago. I don’t believe in taking muscle relaxers or pain killers because it appears that people can’t take these in moderation.
These services are all readily available when you are traveling. Yoga and Pilates studios always have a drop-in fee. So, you can go to one class and don’t have to join or commit to a longer commitment. The chiropractor may be more complicated or may not be. Usually, you just pay a higher fee for a first-time appointment.
Don’t ask me whether insurance will pay for these services because I don’t believe in health insurance. See my post, Tapping Out.
So, because of my back and the fact that I don’t want to buy an entirely new wardrobe I keep my weight down. It’s pretty straightforward…if my clothes start to feel tight I stop eating as much and I increase my walking, biking, etc.
When I bike I can even take the Pugsanimal in his dog buggy. Ours is pictured in the photo above.
So, if you think you need to get in better shape or need to lose some weight, do it.
Don’t make a big deal out of it. Just go walk around more than you normally do and don’t eat so much.
RV fitness. It’s simple.
And, if you think it’s not simple then you are just creating excuses to stop yourself from walking more and eating less.
Remember it doesn’t cost anything to walk and it is definitely cheaper if you eat less.
