|An Overly Simplistic Model But Still Sort of Interesting|
For those who like details, the slope was -0.046 U/min, the y-intercept was 35.3 U and correlation coefficient was -0.65. If I included only March, rather than January through March, the correlation coefficient was -0.68. The mean TDD for January was 32 U and was 30 U for March. Total cycling time was only 90 minutes more in March although the intensity was higher. My weight was about 5 pounds less in March. Again, one of the most important and obvious variables affecting TDD is calorie intake, which is not included here. But still it was fun to plot this out since the data was readily available. Maybe I will be better about logging total activity time, including other forms of exercise, for a period of time. If I am super motivated, I might even track calories although I can only stand doing that once in a while.
