Since getting out of the military and pursuing this goal of becoming a pilot I have put my health on the back burner. Aside from spring/summer 2013 which I worked out hard to drop some weight, I have steadily gained weight and every time I start working out, I let a life issue stop my routine. I am a week away from finishing training at Horizon, and have a goal of working out and eating healthier. I know, everyone says that they want to lose weight and etc, but this I need to do because I've just been feeling like dog dung lately and I know my lack of healthy living is the main contributor. The main issue I want to squash this summer is a dirty habit I picked up when I was in the military, that is chewing. I have found myself lately going through about a can every two days and about a can a day when I was in between jobs last month. I use that garbage as a crutch, and it irritates the hell out of me. It is a gross habit that I'm embarrassed of, but it has gotten to the point where I was even putting a chew in during our 5 min breaks in sim training last week. I also cannot drink more than a beer without a chew going into my lip anymore. No good for the wallet or my jaw. I have read back into this section to gain good tips on eating healthy on the road, bought a strong bags setup with a cooler to aid with that once I hit the line. I know lifting will be out of the question on the road, but have resistance bands and running shoes for my exercising activity on the road. Not yet sure where I'm going with this post, other than maybe wondering if anyone else has quit chewing? I have tried to quit many times, making it about a week at the most before I stop by the store and grab a can. I'm hoping that if I can start getting into shape again, that will ad to my motivation to quit chewing. Because the way I'm going, I'll be out of the game long before 65 without a mouth, high blood pressure and other health issues related to bad diet and no exercise..
