My Name is Earl

  • First, the weigh in results for this week are in. I cheated missed two meals this week but followed the program fairly close for the rest of the week. The most egregious "break" was the barbecue that I went to last weekend where it seemed that I couldn't stop eating grazing on chips, dip, and the like. Even so, the scale showed -1.8 lbs. A little disappointing on one hand but OK on the other hand.
  • As I write this, my back yard is the line between a tropical storm warning a the tropical storm watch. What's the difference? I don't know. We'll find out late Friday/early Saturday when Hurricane Earl is supposed to scoot by. I've been doing mini workouts this week getting my body used doing radical things like sweating and the like. The exercise ramp up continues.
  • I wanted to give an open water swim a try this weekend. Hopefully Earl doesn't make the Long Island Sound like swimming in a washing machine. If it does, splashing in the pool is the option.
  • Earl's leftover wind will make the planned bike rides interesting as well.
  • Keep safe everyone!

-1.8lb is good. Keep up the trend, just ditch the chips.
Hope Earl comes and goes without much fanfare.

I'd hit the pool instead of the Sound. Tropical Storms/Hurricanes make nasty weather and nasty waves. Congrats on the weight loss!

Good luck training! I think you are going to see more of Earl than I am. With luck, neither of us will see much of him. All I can think of when I hear Earl is the Dixie Chicks song.

A WATCH means it is possible to have tropical storm conditions.

A WARNING means it is expected.

Sooooooo. I guess part of your backyard is safer than the other?

Good luck getting a safe swim in.

We didn't get anything from Earl other than a bit of a home run derby at the Phils game last night due to the residual winds. No rain. Just clouds Friday night.

Phils won last night and had a chance to TIE Atlanta today but just lost to the Brewers.
