Healthy Trucker Check-in: Week 1 — Walking & Sharing My Journey

I haven’t weighed in yet this week, but I’ve done pretty well. Not perfect…but pretty well.

One thing that has been different this week is what I have shared with my husband. We have taken the time to walk/jog together 4 times this week. Two times were simply for the exercise, and two times were to exercise and get dinner.

See, that’s one of the things that kind of makes me angry. So many truckers whine and complain about how hard it is to eat healthy on the road. It can be, but just use a little imagination. We very often can find a place to park and then walk to our place for dinner. And then of course, we get to walk back [to the truck] also. It’s been good to actively share part of my weight loss journey with him.

That being said, I haven’t put in as many miles this week as I would have if I had just done my DVD’s on the truck. So I do feel a little lax about that. But hopefully this next week I’ll be more creative and motivated to do more.

And about eating out — you can find something healthy to eat just about anywhere. You just have to make the right choices!

Since I am sitting here waiting to be unloaded, I think I will get off and get in an early walk/jog.

About Tammy Croce

Hi! My name is Tammy, and I'm an over the road truck driver. My husband and I started team driving in January of 2006. We took a year off from July 2011 to July 2012, and have only recently gotten back into driving. I've battled with my weight my entire life. When I got back into driving, I gained some weight because I didn't make good food choices or set aside the time to exercise. But I've decided to change my ways, and this is my journey to becoming healthier through diet and exercise. I hope you'll join me for the ride!
