Anyway, as night was beginning to fall, I had to venture out to get more medicine. And while I was out, I was determined to purchase a new scale for the mission. I felt like I was missing a part of me, the last few days, without my scale. Even though I was feeling sick, I was going to make sure that I would have a working scale by tomorrow morning's weigh-in. I decided that I was going to do things a little different in tonight's post. Instead of writing out everything, I am going to share with you my experience of, searching for a new scale, through various photos.
I was debating on whether or not I should go to the gym tonight because I wasn't feeling to good. But I decided that the show must still go on, so I dragged myself to the gym. Plus, I wanted to make sure that my new scale was as accurate as possible. The first 2 photos you are going to see, is after I am done with my workout, testing the scale at the gym with both a 15 & 20 lb dumbbell.
|15 lb Dumbbell, the amount displayed|
on the scale is 15 lbs
|20 lb dumbbell, the amount displayed|
on the scale is 20 lbs. The dumbbell
looks like it is leaning to one side
because I had to take the picture
on an angle to get rid of the glare of the
light. The dumbbell is placed equally
on the scale.
|Me stepping on the scale. The weight |
displayed is between 233 & 234 lbs
|Me with the broken scale|
|Me with the brand new scale|
|Me weighing-in on the new scale!|
It is just about the same weight that the
scale at the gym displayed! A successful
transition into a new scale!
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
