Doing p 90x helps. I did twice and am doing Yoga, which helps you to have balance and strengthen your core.

Time to bring this topic back up because spring is on the way. I've done a good job of visiting the gym since last December. After wearing out my knees via basketball & downhill skiing I didn't think I would be able to run for exercise without inflaming the joints. I was wrong and all the tread mill running has been great for getting things in order. The weight work is putting some tone back into the old limbs also.

The other day we skied for miles and I was fit for more at the end of the day, how bout the rest of you guys?

If you stop moving, everything gets rusty. I'll see if I can conjure up some pix and tell you what I've been up to lately. milt.

Jiu Jitsu once or twice a week is a pretty intense muscular and most days cardio workout as well. There is nothing quite as taxing as a 5 minute period of fighting and groud fighting. I've been doing that for a few years now and I love it as exercise. Our instructor is a retired Marine Fast Team member, so he really likes to stick it to us Marine style and it hurts most days. It isn't quite enough in the cardio area so I have to jog once a week or so also.

In the summer...yardwork, woodsplitting for the woodstove, move this bush here, take that bush out there; in fact I did 6 hours of that today. Not to mention I do a swift walk for 12 hours every time I go to work; probably log about 6-8 miles there 3 days a week. I have a 3 yr old Yellow Lab,

You've got that right Milt and Jason, you won't have to worry about rust for a while with a lifestyle like yours.

Well, my experience is a little different than others.
One year ago (almost to the day) I quit smoking. With a new found wiggle room in the budget, I was able to pick up fly fishing again after about a 15 year hiatus. That has allowed me more outdoor time and a positive health impact.
On top of that, I have taken to eating as few processed foods as possible and sticking to whole food options; organic when I can, and as much veggies and fruits as I can muster.
My health in general has improved dramatically and I have lost a few pounds to boot. Soon I will be exercising more and working on stamina, but even if I don't do that, I still am much better off than I used to be.
I work 11 hour days as a machine designer and have a hobby farm to boot, so I have a hard time scratching out time for the gym, but I figure throwing around 50 pound bails of hay and feed are almost as good as weights. HaHa

I hope everyone has a great fishing weekend! We are supposed to have awesome weather here.

Congrats on quitting, that is the best thing you could ever do for your overall health. A close second is what you are doing already also, fruits/veggies and stuff that doesn't grow in boxes and bags! I was VERY fortunate to have a mother who gardened and cooked FOOD every day of my life; Thanks Mom!

I'm also one of the fortunate ones who can "enjoy" a cigarrete or cigar without every getting hooked on them. I almost always buy a pack when I go on long fishing trips; just a tradition that my brother and I have. Neither of us smoke more than a couple packs a year but we always like the campfire, the river, and the smell of cigarrette smoke when the fish aren't cooperating.

I get a lot of my exercise while I fish, via the kayak. I paddle 10-15 miles per week. With the river low and not much flow the last couple years I paddle as much as fish. For cardio, well my usual take-out is up a 45 degree hill for about 200 feet. Some of my fishing friends always ask with terror, "we aren't taking out at your place are we".

One of my responsibilities at work is shipping so that helps too.
Eating right go's a long ways to being healthy, not that I always do.
