Forty-third 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.

This year is not going as well as last year.

I’m about 5 pounds heavier than the same time last year.

I’ve been doing a lot of stress snacking lately, and staying home to do grading really resulted in my weight going up.  Without the discipline of bicycling up to campus every day (and skipping lunch most days), my weight has not only stopped going down, but started up again.

I  averaged only 2.8 miles/day of bicycling in March, down from 4.83 miles/day in February, and 5.13 miles/day in January.  My walking is also down: my Verily study watch from Project Baseline reports 117k steps for March (3900/day) down from 190k steps for February (about 6600/day) and 240k steps for January (about 7700/day).

I’m going to take a walk today (wearing my COVID-19 mask) to get in a little exercise. I’m also going to have to come up with some way to motivate myself to exercise more—not just for this cower-in-place period, but longer term, so that I can continue even after retirement.
