I did it! Hah! Me! I voluntarily (that is *by*choice*) stayed OFF my scale today for the ENTIRE DAY. #1DAYNOSCALE
I honestly do not believe there has been a day in the past 10 years that I have not weighed myself unless it was by force (no scale available). Not a single day.
And this morning, despite the trepidation, despite wanting to cry and throw and tantrum and say "I can do it if I WANT to," I talked myself through it. And when I finally convinced myself that I could step AWAY from the scale, I quickly got dressed and ATE something (pre-gym breakfast) so as to completely ruin any chances of having a change of heart and running back upstairs, stripping down and jumping on ;)
That's not to say that I haven't otherwise been freaking about it all day, but I'm dealing, I'm still here, I didn't MELT and I'm pretty sure I didn't gain 12lbs when I wasn't looking.
Tomorrow will be another day, no promises now of what tomorrow will bring. But I do know that today I did it, so I do know that I can choose to do it again.
And now for something completely different!
Training today went squat/bench/squat. Lots of squat. Lots of bench too, who am I kidding. A bajillion paused reps followed by 4 sets of 8 db incline press (also paused, gah) and my pecs are uhhhhh..let's just say *feeling*it*
Legs are too, and really I need to get my ass off the computer and right onto the foam roller, if there's any hope of movement tomorrow :)
And now for your viewing pleasure...
Last Bench - really focusing on form here, trying to keep elbows in, touch lower and keep the arch solid.
