Am still adjusting food. Losing weight slower than before, but I also need to drop the cashews . Am better at relaxing upper torso but still working on it.

Goals:
Ride bike each day for at least 20 minutes. It's good if I increase my milage, distance, and time ... but it's okay if I don't. Right now I'm doing good as long as I get on the bike and ride at any speed. Continue tracking exercise (and weight loss) on spreadsheets.
I'm reading The Sugar Smart Diet (because I may have some pretty intense emotional connections with sweet and fattening foods) and the author discusses a couple of small studies done where they found that eating either peanuts or peanut butter as part of the breakfast helps control blood sugar and sugar spikes all day long, which in part, helps with weight loss.

How this connects to you? I can't say for sure but maybe changing the time when you tend to eat the cashews could be helpful? Or changing the type of nut you eat might help.

But I have been walking some.

We have a stretch of nice weather coming up next week, so if my foot is better, I will go for bicycle rides after I get off work.
I've dropped a 12x12 box of ceramic tiles on my foot so I feel your pain (literally!). Are you wrapping it? Compression may help with some of the pain.

As for thread compliance, I walked 10,609 steps today.
