Fifty-second 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.

My weight is about where it was a year ago, though the variance may be higher this summer than last.

I’m pleased to be out of the “overweight” region, but I still have a lot of pandemic pounds to lose. I’d really like to get rid of another 16 pounds, which could take me another 9 months at my current weight-loss rate.

For August I upped my bicycling to an average of 2.3 miles/day—which is better than the previous months, but still too small—about half what I did before the pandemic. Some of that bicycling was going to Audrey Stanley Grove for Santa Cruz Shakespeare staged readings and the season announcement for 2022. This year’s staged readings were ok, but not great—both plays seemed to be in early workshop stages and needed some more rewriting.  The best of the 2019 staged readings (The Formula) is being planned as a full production (a world premiere) for 2022.

I did get in about 225k steps in August (about 7.3k steps a day), slightly up from July . A big chunk of the steps comes from doing the “secret walks” once a week, though last week’s walk did not get written up yet, because we were not able to figure out the reverse route at one point and so cut the walk short.  I walked the confusing part in the forward direction yesterday (plus some more walking on an alternate longer route home, plus walking downtown for dinner, so I got in 17k steps yesterday). I now know which trail to take, and so my wife and I will retry the walk this weekend.
