I have been fortunate enough that I have never been overweight, which is probably why I can get away with eating a lot of high-carb/refined sugar foods (much to the chagrin of my wife!). However, I am in my mid-50s and am more than aware that that refined sugar and all those carbs are not doing my arteries, or most other internal organs, any good.
I try to weight lift every night (I am not a morning person, so although I have great admiration for those that can wake up at 5:00 am and do a workout, I do not share such dedication at that uncivilized hour). I have a lot of equipment in my basement, so there is no excuse for me to go down and exercise.
As for throughout the day, I try
to move around every 30 minutes or so, which, let's face it, when you're in meetings or trying to meet project deadlines or providing support at any given time day or night, is not always easy. But most days I manage to move as much as possible. I also try not to miss my half hour brisk walk at lunch (I work downtown in a small city, just off a lake, so there are trails to walk, etc...).
