|Ghirardelli 60% cacao chocolate chips. My munching habit..|
But this year is pleasingly different—I'm unsure why that is. I haven't gained one pound. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. I cycled 10 miles a week throughout January and February—not a huge amount in the overall scheme of warm weather cycling—but certainly more than past years where I completely stop for 3-4 months. I also walk every morning and evening, contrary to last year where I walked/jogged only at 5:30 a.m.. Either way it's the same total distance.
So, I presume it has more to do with an increased metabolism; I exercise more frequently. But whatever the reason, I'm thrilled. Especially as this aging body could have the tendency to gain weight as I enter my 50s. I'll just keep up the activity and see what happens.
Heaven help me if I have to cut back on the chocolate.
