National Bike Month Weigh-in

I’m a few days late to post this, but trust me, I did weigh-in on Sunday. As part of National Bike Month, I am committing to ride my bike to work daily (weather permitting). As the month goes on and I ride daily, I am going to track my weight and body fat % to see how things change with the increased activity level. I will also post the amount of gas I did not use assuming I did not drive my car (a 2007 Honda Fit that gets roughly 29mpg in my daily driving). This is going to vary somewhat from reality, since the route I may take by bike can differ substantially from the route I take driving. An efficient auto route does not necessarily equate to an efficient bike route and vice versa. Also, riding a bike is fun and I have fun alternate routes for bike commutes.

May Is National Bike to Work Month!

Sorry for the long interval between posts, readers. Grad school is hitting me hot & heavy. My thesis proposal got accepted (after half my data was collected already) and now it’s time to move on. Lots of computer work has been done this semester, and this summer will bring lots of processing and number crunching in order to meet a hopeful Fall 2011 graduation deadline. I had wanted to finish by the time I was 30. At this rate, I might be able to make it before I hit 31.
