I did a couple things this week. They are each small things but I have high hopes. I'm going to make a note of my present situation so that I have a baseline.
Thing 1: I bought a Fitbit and started logging everything. Having data about my life makes me happy. Since I got it to talk to my scale as well I can see (for example) the 10 pounds I lost in September 2014 when Cat was in such dire shape and the 30 pounds I've gained since then. I can hit my anxieties over the head with actual numbers.
Thing 2: I bought a Steam Link, which is a little $50 box that will let me stream games from my PC downstairs to the TV in the exercise room upstairs. Conversely, it speaks Bluetooth so that it can relay mouse/keyboard/gamepad events back down to the PC.
These two things are important in combination because they are similar to the situation in 2001-2002 while I was writing my dissertation. I lost ~50 pounds during that interval by skiing on a Nordictrack in the living room while playing games on the TV. The greater part of that was while playing a particularly trippy game called Rez. It was perfect for reasons I'm sure I'll go into in a later entry.
Two days ago, Rez Infinite
was released on Steam.
Like I said, I have high hopes.
