  • Same Food Every Day

    1) cut tomatoes and avocados 2) eat out of a measuring cup :)

    For days I had the same: oranges, and then tomatoes with avocado, with occasional grapes or apples. It is around 6-8 pounds or ~ 3-4 kg (bulk), $5-7 a day, buying smartly in California.

    What are you guys having these days?

  • Lucky Sun Hours

    Unexpectedly, the Sun went out, and I was happy all the way to the pool, in it, and back.

    7K Walking (total), 1.5K swimming.

    This is me, Lena, in the bright Californian sunlight after a swim.

  • After a Swim

    This is me on the way back from pool after swimming. This is me, Lena, after the usual 1.5K  swim.

    I've been swimming in an open pool for many weeks now, almost every day, almost the same distance - 1.5 kilometers.

  • Pool Swimming

    My watch with 33 rounds (25 yards x 66)

    Swimming in UCSD pool, I started to count laps like in running, by rounds, to make it easier. So now, I touch the lap button on my watch on the start point only. I mostly swim a mile or so, in breaststroke, almost daily. Today I made 33 rounds (50 yards or 45.7 meters each, 25-yard laps x 66).

  • 1.5K Swimming Improvement

    My watch after swimming 1.5K in 40:42 (25 yards x 66)

    Happy about my first time swimming 1500 meters in under 41 minutes! Today I got to swim very late because of traffic and waiting in a post office (no Sunshine for my new sundress), but I was faster than yesterday by 1 minute: 1.5K in around 40:42 minutes vs 41:59. Not so

  • 3K Swim in 86 Minutes

    UCSD Pool

    After yesterday's 45 minutes swim in the cold and seaweedy Pacific ocean, in a restrictive wet suit, today's flat blue water surface seemed unreal.

    I made 2 swimmer's miles (132 x 25 yards) or 3000 m in over 86 minutes. The day before yesterday I made only one, but in

  • 1500 Meters Swim in 42 minutes

    UCSD open air pool, 1.5K

    Suddenly, my time on one swimmer's mile (66 short laps/lengths of this open air pool) has improved by 3 minutes! After making that 6 km swim I went back to 1.5 km a day to the same time as before: around 45 minutes, and today it was under 42!

    Additionally, for the first

  • 6K Pool Swim

    6K Pool Swim

    I did not want to stop swimming, and wanted to check whether I could double my usual these days distance. I did not care much about the style and speed, I just wanted to move forward in water, because nothing better waited for me outside on this emotionally excruciating day.

    264 length

  • 2 Minutes Faster 3K Swim (3.7K Total)

    Today in the pool I repeated yesterday, made 132 of 25 yards (3K or 3 km) in 1:29 (89 minutes vs 91 last time), then swam till 148 (3.7K). Started with most lengths in 36 seconds, in 50s went down to 38-39, by the end I was already over 40.

    Yesterday I

  • 3K in Swimming in Pool

    3K in Swimming in Pool

    Today I doubled my distance in the pool and made unplanned 3000 m (3K) - 132 short lengths of 25 yards in over 1,5 hours. It is relatively slow, but very enjoyable. For the comparison, Olympic 2012 men made the half of it in around 15 minutes in freestyle, so I am about 3 times

Body Weight, Obesity, and BMI

Body weight - person's mass or weight. Body weight is measured in kilograms, pounds, or stones and pounds. Body weight is the measurement of weight without items located on the person

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health.

People are generally considered obese when their body mass index (BMI) is over 30 kg/m2, with the range 25–30 kg/m2 - overweight. 

BMI, body mass index - a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height. 

Obesity increases the likelihood of diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.

Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food intake, low levels of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility. A few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications, or mental illness. Evidence to support the view that obese people eat little yet gain weight due to a slow metabolism is not generally supported.

On average, obese people have a greater energy expenditure than their thin counterparts due to the energy required to maintain an increased body mass.
