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.


  1. Congrats for staying off the scale! And dang, those videos just make me HURT watching them. It's amazing, truly!

  2. As hard as you train, you should get on a RumbleRoller ( It gets deeper into the muscle and does a better job of breaking up adhesions.

  3. Hi Ron,
    I had a look at it, had never heard of the RumbleRoller before! It looks like it could be useful...I may just order one. Thanks :)
