Trop Storm Barry Check in!



Recommended Posts

Anyone else riding out Barry? For most of us in the south we’ve done this many many times now. Post Op Day 5, only house in our neighborhood with power, hoping to hold onto it! So if you’re getting hit by Barry too, let us know you’re alright!

Oh my gosh...If I were further south in TX or LA, I'm so focused on my sugar free or 'sugar grams greatly reduced' popsicles, I might be tempted to rent a generator to protect my 'stash' ;)

All kidding aside, I've been through typhoons before, one of which had winds that were in the Hurricane Harvey realm so I understand. Our gulf coast areas here in the South have become experts at preparing (as much as one can) for these things.

Those of us further north of the gulf...worry over everyone each time though....

Still have power. Enjoying a few strained sips of the gumbo we cooked for the kids. My in-laws were frying fish, chicken and everything under the sun when we checked on them earlier it was rough to smell. Our horses (labradors) are enjoying all this unlimited time inside. But kids & ourselves are a little stir crazy genes the trip over to the in-laws earlier.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
