Shelter at Home: Are you working out more? Or, less?

While sheltering at home, are you working out more, less or about the same amount?

I'm working out more, 7 days a week many days twice a day. However I am also eating more. Also my job was a very active one at a restaurant, so now that I'm not working I'm getting less activity in my day overall even though I'm working out more. All that to say I gained a lb or 2 in the last month

I could have written this, except my job was in non-essential retail.

Iím working out more, just once per day but 6-7 days per week and an active rest day with restorative yoga and stretching. I am a morning WO person - not going to happen if I donít do it first thing. Itís easier to get in a workout when I donít have to take kids to school then commute to work.

Iím eating better, too. I need to start bringing my lunch to work instead of grabbing something there.

I am working out less, but only partly due to stress. This time of year I work a lot of hours, so it cuts into my workouts. I was doing good at walking outdoors everyday last week, enjoying the warm and sunny days. We now have about 15 inches of snow, so tomorrow it will be Shovel Max and still snowing hard.

Less but mainly cause we moved in March and my gym stuff was the last stuff to get moved.

I'm ramping it up now so I'll be working out a little more than I was.

I had been depending on the treadmill at the Y for an almost-daily walk.

Real life walks seem to have lead to other things. Even did Jari Love's Original Get Ripped last week.

I'm working out the same amount. I've found what my body can handle work out wise so I stick with it. I could try to add more, but then I would be wiped out!

Some weeks, I exercise more. Some weeks, I exercise less. At least with formal workouts. Add in the walks around the neighborhood DH and I take and it's probably more overall.
