First day with the BodyMedia! And you know what? I love data. I know my nerdiness is showing, but hot damn! That’s fine. It just gets me so excited to make graphs and analyze data. I’m totally geeking out.
Today was kind of a typical lazy Saturday for me. I spent a lot of time sitting on my couch, but I also went to a friend’s house and got my bike tires pumped up. Once I’ve got some money, I really need a nicer bike. But in the meantime, peddling around town with two flat tires was brutal. I biked 8 minutes and was gasping for air. My quads were working so hard. I thought that would be my annual bike ride. Luckily I have competent friends and once I got some air, I was good to go. After dinner, I went for a short ride around the neighbourhood. It is so freeing to just glide down a hill at top speed.
Even without the bike ride, my calories burned were a lot higher than I anticipated, especially since I spent a lot of time on the weekend just lounging around. I suspect I’ll be doing some serious diet re-evaluation this week.
In the meantime, this article on the connection between loneliness and overeating appeared in The New York Times‘ Well earlier. I found it to be particularly relevant, even though it appears to be written for the elderly. What can I say? I’m an old soul.
