Thirty-seventh weight progress report

This post is yet another weight progress report, continuing the previous one, part of a long series since I started in January 2015.

Except for weeks when I’m making a deliberate effort to diet, my weight seems to increase about 7 pounds a year.

I’m now back to about the same weight as I was a year ago, but I’m going to try not to repeat last summer’s and last fall’s weight gains.

Because of the days (weeks!) I spent staying home grading, I only averaged 3.03 miles/day of cycling in June, and I’ve had to stop running (at least for a while, see Running hiatus), so my exercise level has been low.

As I said in last month’s report “The end of Spring quarter and the beginning of summer seem to be bad times for weight gain—I think that the heavy grading load results in less physical activity and more snacking. Then the lack of bike commuting kicks in and my level of physical activity drops even further.”

I’m still thinking of paying UCSC $22.84 a month to use the OPERS “Wellness Center”, so that I can do low-impact running-like motions (treadmill and elliptical machine).  (The rates go up to $30/month in September.)  I’ll probably check that out tomorrow.
