NROL4W Stage 6 - Wednesday - Workout A3

Stage 6A

slow negative chin up 3x1- 16 sec, 19 sec, 16 sec
60 s rest

underhand lat pull down (assisted chin up) 10x2 - 5 sets of these were unassisted
60 s rest

barbell split squat 3x6x90 lbs
push up 3x6
60 s rest

I am loving the chin ups! 2 activity points.

eggs w/ mini bagel [1 pt] & avocado hummus
cucumber slices w/ avocado hummus
yogurt & cereal w/ apple
chicken breast, raw vegetables w/ avocado hummus, crash hot potatoes [1 pt for extra oil]

80 ounces of water and three coffees. 30 weekly points remaining. I used both activity points I earned.

I don't know what the next couple days will bring. Hurricane Earl will be arriving tomorrow. I'm on the northern Outer Banks. Hopefully I don't use any lack of power (because I'm pretty sure we will lose it) as an excuse to go off plan. I have alternate means of cooking, and plenty of non-perishables. Still, I'm stressed.

Tomorrow's workout - I might take a rest day so I have time to clean my house before my father-in-law gets here, or I might do Mark Sisson's Workout of the Week.

Days Binge Free: 66

Man, you're SO much more optimistic than I would be. I'd be shitting my pants right about now, LOL! I hope that the storm isn't too bad and that it doesn't last too long. I'll be thinking of you guys!

Becky said...

There's not really much to stress about. The islands south of us will get crappier weather than we will. We're on the west side of the storm. That's good.

Jess said...

I'm a big baby, period, when it comes to storms. I have been through a hurricane before (Hurricane Ivan during our Honeymoon in Cancun) and it sucked. You're probably a seasoned OBX resident by now and you're probably used to these storms. I don't think I could ever get used to them. :(

Becky said...

We haven't had one come through in a while. But we can't leave so I'm not going to freak out. I'm just going to be prepared.

Jess said...

That's probably all you can do. What do they do about the schools? Do they automatically close them or do they just play it by ear until it gets really bad? I've always wondered that...

Becky said...

By 3 PM today, they'd already canceled school for tomorrow & Friday. This is the first time I've dealt with tropical storm/hurricanes during school. Normally it's nor'easters, and those we usually don't know about until late the night before or 6 AM the day off.

I forgot Sebastian's not been in school that long. Interesting!

Adrian's been getting out 2 hours early this week because it's too hot (it's been in the mid 90s). I wish we could have gotten an early dismissal for hot weather. They even have AC at his school?!

Becky said...

This is his third year there. It's just been that long since we've had a tropical storm or hurricane.

I wish we could get out early when it's in the mid-90s :p We have killer AC though. It's still hot as hell in the serving line in the cafeteria though.
