Retirement is Fattening!
Wednesday, April 02, 2014
I am really enjoying my husband's retirement. He is home and doing a lot of deferred maintenance around the house.
We also take a nice long walk every morning that we can. We both are enjoying the walks and we notice that the more we walk the better our stamina. We can now walk longer and farther without getting as tired. I know that is good for us and that as we get more stamina we will be able to walk to even more places.
Some of our favorite places to walk are to places we like to eat at. Then we can sit down and enjoy a meal or a snack before we have to walk home. Now the trick is to learn how much we can eat and not gain weight.
I have been gaining about a pound a month since he retired. I know that is not a lot of weight to gain, but it is sure a lot of weight to try to lose. It is 3 pounds since January! That is not good. I know I am having more exercise, but the weight seems to be sneaking up on me. Yesterday was the start of the new month and I am trying to figure out a way of eating that will not cause the weight gain. My diet has not really changed a lot since his retirement, but eating out just a little extra seems to be a problem for me.
