How can I be a healthy trucker?

Dear Carolyn, I really love my trucking job but am worried about the future. I am at least 75 lbs. overweight, have high blood pressure and probably sleep apnea. I try to eat a healthy diet and get a little exercise, but it’s hard. The hours are long and boring and if it’s in my truck and not nailed down, I eat it!
