Fifty-fifth 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 has fluctuated a bit in the past month. I had a bad cold for a few days and did not eat much, and probably got a bit dehydrated. The weight I lost then came back quickly.

The long-term trend still has me at the high end of the “normal” range, and I’d like to be at least 12 pounds, and preferably 16 pounds, lighter than I currently am.

For January, my bike riding averaged 0.88miles/day—not only was I not going up to campus, but my cold has kept me indoors even more than usual.  I’ll try to bike up to campus a few times in February, as well as doing more grocery shopping.

I’ve averaged about 5k steps/day over January—way down from the 6.7k/day for Oct—Dec. A big chunk of the steps still comes from doing the “secret walks” once a week, but I no longer have the additional extra walk with my friend—perhaps I can restart that soon, when Omicron subsides a bit here.  My wife and I have finished doing all the walks in  Secret Walks & Staircases in Santa Cruz, by Debbie Bulger and Richard Stover and have started making up our own routes. I’ll post about the walks on the blog as before.

In about a month I’ll have to give the “project watch” back to Project Baseline, as the study is coming to an end, so I’ll no longer have a step counter nor a wristwatch.  I’ll either have to get a new watchband for one of my old watches (the bands are all broken) or get myself a new watch.  I’m trying to decide whether to get a FitBit or some other fitness tracker—none of them seem well designed for monitoring both bicycling and walking (they’d need to be ankle-mounted for that, and there is a stigma associated with electronics on the ankle).
