NROL - Week 16 - Friday

Fat Loss IIB today, with 30 second rest periods:

[superset w/ full rest]:
snatch grip deadlift 3x8x70
push up (on knees) 3x8xbw

[superset w/ full rest]:
Bulgarian split squat w/ overhead db press 3x8x10
underhand lat pull 3x8x70

[superset w/ full rest]:
Romanian deadlift w/ bent over bb row 3x8x50

I am so glad today was that last day of Fat Loss II. I hated it. I'm off next week, on "vacation" with my inlaws, and when I return home, I'll be starting Hypertrophy I. I am really excited about this one. The sets and reps and rest periods are a bit different, and I'll have to consult my notes every time I work out. There's a pattern but I doubt I'll remember it. The way I have it set up, it will take 6 weeks to get through Hyper I, then another 6 for Hyper II. I'm not sure if I'll break in between.

I spent the morning filling out my log with the remaining NROL programs. It took about an hour to enter all the exercises and sets/reps, and in some cases, tempos. Some of the workouts look really, really daunting. I'm excited, though. And since I've put them all in the journal, I'm 95% committed to following through!

My husband brought home half a garbage bag full of ice cream - sandwiches, drumsticks, all the good kinds I like. I don't know if I'm angry or jealous or what. I know I could eat every single one of them in a day, and I want to (even though it's been snowing all morning). This is going to be a horrible temptation and test of my willpower. Of course, I can have one, but they are huge portions. My husband won't "split" one with me.

6:20 AM - apple & cottage cheese

9:30 AM - chicken breast w/ mashed sweet potato, coffee w/ cream & Splenda

12:45 PM - turkey sandwich w/ mustard & mayo, carrots, coffee w/ cream & Splenda

5:45 PM - scrambled eggs w/ onion, green pepper, taco sauce, sausage w/ gravy

8:45 PM - turkey sandwich w/ mustard & mayo

Oh wow...why did your husband bring home a whole GARBAGE bag full of that stuff? Does he know about your struggles? Man, if my husband did that I must admit I'd be livid. It's one thing to have a small amount of something in the house that you feel is fairly safe but to have a whole buttload of the stuff is a bit overwhelming. I'd be tempted to throw at least half of it out! Oops...perhaps I shouldn't give you any ideas! :)

How long will you be gone for? I hope you have a good vacation! Do you get along with your in-laws?

That's mean of him to do to you! Well you could split one with yourself if you are really dying. Eat half and throw the other half away. That's what I would do.

Good luck!

He doesn't believe I have a problem. It really doesn't bother me. I have to learn to make my own (right) choices and can't stop the rest of the world from living, you know? I bring sweets into the house all the time and don't usually have a problem. My M&Ms are still in the freezer, unopened. Not having things in the house doesn't stop me from wanting them. If I really want something and we don't have it, I'll go buy it. This stuff was just given to him, so if I do end up eating any (which I don't think I will - I am in a really good place right now, mentally), it would be the cheapest binge ever :)

I'll be gone from Tuesday night until Sunday night. I get along great with my inlaws. My MIL loves to sabotage my diet though. She doesn't understand that once I lose all the weight, I can't go back to eating the way I was or that just a little can hurt if I'm not careful. I'm going to blog about my strategy in a few days, but for the first time in years, I am not worried about how I'll eat while I'm on vacation, and I'm not afraid that I'll screw up. I won't.
