Don't let that be any kind of excuse - there are ways around everything!
Not a lot of options for what?
I am on a sheep station in western NSW 250kms from the nearest bigger town. We only food shop once a monthish. For the first week or so we have lots of fresh fruit and veg but then as that starts to be not so fresh then we move onto frozen veg (and fruit too) until we get to town. At the moment we also have garden in that helps with fresh stuff. We will have tinned stuff as a last resort as usually there is salt added and it's probably the least healthy option of the healthy options (if that makes sense lol)
As far as exercise - there's so much you can do without a gym or even equipment. Walking for a start is a brilliant exercise .. graduate slowly into a jog for more cardio work. Do body weight exercises like lunges and push ups for example. Get hold of some workout DVDs for rainy or hot days .. also great to do these after dark when the kids are in bed. If you have a smartphone then look up fitness apps - Nike have a brilliant one that will walk you through different workouts (I think it's just called Nike training).
