I broke my femur in four places when I was 23 years old; it now causes me problems with balance when I am walking. I exercise the gluteus medius and I can walk again.

Best advice I ever got. When Hungry for a snack, eat a Banana. Thats it ! almost free in hot enviorments.
Want a beer ? Eat a Banana in between beers, and you will not be able to drink 4 and never have a hangover ! Proven. Belly full of potassium (Bananas) and only 4 beers will leave you fresh and awake in the am.
(NOT THAT YOU DRINK BUT YOU LOOK LIKE IT)
A Banana instead of a chocolate bar or a ice cream,chips or anything.
Andy cut the cheap carbos. Eat some fish and bananas and do a little swimming or something.
I spend a lot of time in 3 foreign cities located in Thailand, Colombia, and the Philippines. For each of these 3 cities, I know where the public facilities to work out are located along with a running track. So I consider this when I decide on the location I will be living within the city.
For the traveler new to a place, this is something to scope out ahead of time, if possible. For the Philippines, before I arrived I asked on an internet forum and got a good answer.
I too miss sit ups, and push ups. Apart from my own health, I have always found it useful to look fit, just to help potential aggressors to pick on the next guy, not on me -)
