Fatblogging: Walking the Infinite Loop

Remodeling during the winter has been unkind to my girlish figure.

Terribly coincidental, my Mii rolled onto the screen in Wii Fit this morning.

Step #1. Do something. Anything.

A 10 minute walk a day around the infinite loop is, at the very least, a start.

Today (3/19) was 2x around the infinite loop. Next week, the cycling to/from work begins, assuming I have finally shaken this stupid early spring cough (can’t tell if I’m ill or this is just allergies).

And I got an unexpected hour of gardening in late on 3/20. Need to photo-document the unbelievably dangerous device we use to turn fava bean plants into the best green fertilizer ever.

    Don’t do that. Walking makes you just more hungry! It’s a trap.

    Heh, I can guess where you parked, and that you stopped in the company store, from the two little dimples on that track. 🙂

    hey bill, what about your bike and commute to work? i really miss your stories about those little path burrs that you counter with kevlar, bullet proof, auto inflating, auto changing, these-are-the-tires-that-only-jack-bauer-would-use type tires.

    The way I keep my very thin (2D thin) figure is 1- watching what I eat, ( but not where I eat, I tend to graze off of cliffs). 2- a short 20 minutes of calisthenics each day including hiding on the Apple campus (which has been very difficult since they removed my beloved icon garden, I get the feeling they’re trying to get rid of me).

    Anyway, since starting up the calisthenics routine (and some dumbbell work) in late November last year I’ve dropped 1% of my body fat and 6 lbs. which is pretty good considering the holidays and all.

    Keep up the walking, I’m sure it’ll help. At the very least you’ll at least get a little outdoor time each day.

    Wow! Clarus follows you! I’m very impressed.

    next step is to visit the parts of campus outside the loop.

    we’re part of the company too! it’s not THAT far!

    Walk a loop for me, will ya?

    I don’t know how fast you walk, but 2 loops are probably not enough to produce the result you’re expecting. IIRC, walking the loop is a 10-minute thing at most. It’s after 30 minutes that a sport activity can help increase the muscle or reduce extra-weight.

    If you think my expectations are anything but “get off my ass and do something, anything, to stretch the legs, get outside, and aid a bit in post lunch digestion” combined with “amuse my friends by making fun of my fat ass”, then you are entirely wrong.

    BTW: This morning I rode my bike a little over a mile to buy donuts.

    I recently invested in a Water Rower which is very attractive piece of equipment/furniture that I keep in my apartment and since my apartment gym has fitness equipment with it’s on built in TV screen _but_ a very poor selection of channels to watch on them I can exercise on my Water Rower in my apartment whilst I was TV. Certainly has made me more active in recent weeks.
