While I’m cooking up that promised weaving post, I’m going to drag you through a bit of a general status update of life at the cottage.
Hey there. Once again my sincere apologies for lack of content – I do in fact have some linky things lined up, but thought it would be nicer to spread them out a little in between actual posts.
6 months fitness update
Official start date: December 2016. Goal: to battle fatigue and pains, dial body shape back 5 years. That’s minus 25% body weight and/or measurements whichever comes first.
6 months later I had hoped to report being halfway, but: 7 kg lost, 1 trouser size. That’s roughly 10%. 9-10 kg/15% to go and 8 cm around the hip for my 2013 form. I don’t think that’s too much to ask, it’s not like I’m trying to turn the clock back 30 years. (I weighed just 42 kg when I was 20, hard to believe now!)
Mini status of an elliptical nature
This week I discovered that you can block neoprene knee braces in hot water to accommodate thunder thighs and super calves. Because XL would have lost the actual support function, and I’m not going to sit still for a little “patella syndrome”. (all those dots mean my muscles are improving)
@Kerry I’m still at 60 second planks because of my shoulders, but my sideways are improving in style!
I’ll see if I can squeeze in a studio update soon, but I’m working (when I’m working) on mostly longterm projects at the moment, so there’s not many interesting tidbits for a blog post.
I’ve considered a newsletter instead so my most hardcore readers don’t have to check back to see if I’ve updated anything yet…
See you soon! <3
Another two months since my last exercise update. G started work again in Feb. so until the evening light came back on courtesy of daylight savings, our brisk walks were reduced to weekends or not at all because of sucky weather. I simply don’t get up enough steam when walking alone, a long legged companion is just the thing for keeping your pace! So crosstraining it is, which of course isn’t as time consuming or needs to be coordinated, so I get more studio projects done finally. Sometimes. I did imagine I’d feel more improvement on the energy front by now, find that second wind.
