I am lucky to live in an area where I can go running around the neighborhood and avoid coming close to any other people, and also lucky that happens to be my favorite exercise. If we are told to stay inside, I guess I will have to switch to running on the treadmill (and I know I am incredibly lucky to have access at all times to a treadmill which hardly gets used because I run outside most of the time).
Being cooped up indoors is giving me more time to feel bad that I'm not doing nearly as much strength training as I should be (I get plenty of cardio), so I've started to make a spreadsheet of which exercises I do when I occasionally lift some light weights, since I tend to just do the same ones all the time. So far it seems to be working and I'm trying to get in about 10 minutes a day.
As for impacting my diet - I've been food shopping once in the last week and a lot of the normal staples for me were not there (e.g. eggs, bagels, frozen veggies and fruit, potatoes, frozen ravioli, frozen meatballs, etc.). I'm feeling stressed by the whole thing and bought a dozen donuts on clearance. It has taken us several days to eat them, so I wouldn't say I have binged, just not something I would normally get and sometimes I like treats when I'm stressed out.
I'm still trying to eat fairly healthy foods. I have a bagel for lunch every day. I run in the mornings, and I like to have a bagel after a run. I only have one bagel left, but we have flour and a yeast packet, so I guess I will be making some bagels from scratch. This is something I can do, but have not done in several years. (I'm not saying bagel is a healthy food - just something that is a major part of my diet and something I would dearly miss if I had no access to. I can go a few days without a bagel, but my alternative favorite lunch is cheesy eggs or an omelet and that is currently out of the question because there were no eggs.)
But the real question, folks, is, how in heck do we find toilet paper?
I am also staying at home & all the gyms here are closed & I can't go for running also. I am trying do some exercise at home to keep myself busy & fit but it a it tough to workout without equipment's.
I'm a little late to the party, but for anyone looking for indoor exercise/walking type things, you might take a look at YouTube for Leslie Sansone - she's got a lot of walking videos and you walk with her. She does a variety of exercises along with simple walking in place, leg lifts, etc and gets the whole body going. I actually dug out my DVD the other night and will probably start working on that in the coming days.
We have a stay at home order here, too, but we're still allowed to get out and exercise - walk, run and even play golf, etc so long as social distancing is practiced. I've been walking every day, but I'm losing my walking partner tomorrow morning so I'll be on my own, too. I do have a treadmill and was going to sell it, but I'm thinking I might hang on to it now as I can use it during the summer when it's too hot to walk outside.
As for food - we've only been out for groceries a couple of times... the stores aren't stocked all that well and what produce there is, is quite expensive. I do have frozen fruit and veggies in the freezer so can get by for a while, but the frozen food section of the store was nearly empty.
We, typically, have an abundance of fresh produce stands around here, but those aren't here this year and the main produce market we, typically go to is closed now.
I've actually kind of "gravitated" to the "not so good for me" types of food that my husband usually prefers, which includes a lot of sandwiches, pizza and other junk simply because I'm tired of trying to figure out what to cook... :-)
In spite of not eating all that well, I've not gained any new weight recently, but neither have I managed to lose any of the weight I gained last spring on one of our trips up north...
My sleeping pattern will be changing with my neighbor leaving, so that might change my eating pattern, as well. It can't get much worse, so it's bound to get better.
~~Stay safe and wash your hands~~
I try to eat healthy food and do at least some exercises because I really miss this
