Yep, so much stuff has happened. Mostly three years of being out of my mind, literally. So like this blog, I've finally clawed myself out of a stupor after finally finding the right medication. Sometimes I was able to do some work, but my mind really wasn't in it, which is a pretty big problem for a knowledge worker. My current therapy: working out any moment possible, and of course still knitting. So now this is being revised as a training log with interludes of knitting.
With my love of aliases, I'm still Thomasina to the knitting community, and now Yelsel to the fitness community. Go figure. Anything I put under the internet is immediately attributable to me - the joy and curse of a unique name. I don't write anything I would be ashamed to have associated with me - I just would like to enjoy a bit of privacy. Not that many people will read this, but it is so, so easy to google. This is mostly my training record, and a record of my knitting projects for my own enjoyment.
My goals: Complete "New Rules" in the next 6-8 months. Increase muscle strength and increase lean muscle mass. Also, decrease % body fat to be healthier and show muscle definition. Ride in the first Century ride of the season (last weekend in April) and raise enough money to do the AIDs charity ride - SF to LA, 545 miles in 7 days, the first week in June.
After the break: the weight and exercise story. Next post catching up with the knitting story.
