No one has control over your choices but you! I know you will succeed in anything you set your sights on.

That is all (well except nice benching too)!

Bench looked good. Loved the Starsky and Hutch car! Rock on Jimbo.
Aw, you guys sure have a knack for lifting me up, which is why I share pretty much everything with all of you. Thanks so much.

Interesting idea to write a book - you really think my life is that interesting? I am thinking that that is something Lisa would also love to help with and be involved in. She is such a fantastic writer and it would be an honour to work with her on it. Eevn Steve i am sure would be able to help with editing!!

This was never supposed to be about money. I reckon as a businessman, he wants to see a rate of return on his investment. I can't swing the course financially on my own, so it's over on that front.

However, I am going to put alot of thought into a few things in the next few weeks. His offer also is valid for Mrs Squatter as well, so she is also thinking of a few things.

What hurt the most is that he thinks of the lifting and everything associated with it as just an entertainment thing and that I should be spending more time on my potential new career. Well, I did that already, and he shot it down.

I was able to dispense of my anger on the Monolift today. I am good as new!! Squats are so damn therapeutic!

SQUATS WITH THE CREW

I was able to direct my remaining anger at the lifts today. The boys were really happy with my effort today, and so was I. The double @405 is a big PR match, but back then I was 238 lbs and I am 210 today. Depth was not spectacular, but I was told legal. It was also kinda ballsy for me, as the 385 triple pretty much gassed me. However, when you have pro football players and the Boss Brian spotting and looking on, it inspires me to give everything I got and then some.

Best thing is is that I am still 100% healthy, lower back is just dandy, and bigger and better things are on the way. I could never say that before when I last did these kinds of weights.

Maintaining your strength, and increasing, at a lower weight is awesome Jim! Never, ever ever stop!


I want you to know that your strength through these times builds me up. You didn't jump off a building. Your uncles choices in life were based off his own circumstances, interests and motivations.


Don't ever do something, or not do, if you think you will regret it later!

Sorry I missed the whole thing Jim. You are amazing and awesome and you know what? Money doesn't matter if you don't have your health you have nothing. Your Uncle doesn't get it. He has never had such health issues to deal with. Anything like that always comes with strings attached.

You have to follow your heart and it will pan out. I promise you. I would be happy to help you in anyway I can.

I never will stop Ben! Lifting is in my DNA. I agree, he was being very selfish. It was a rough 2 hours for sure. Lots to think about for me. I am certainly done with regrets!

No need to apologize Lisa!! It always brightens my day tho when you are online here at MAB and especially in my journal. Indeed, job 1 this year was looking after my health, and is now to keep it. He indeed doesn't get it, and I couldn't convey thast to him. Just wouldn't listen.

Strong deads, benching and squatting Jimmy Tree Trunks!

Keep your head up Jim! Let your heart be your guide, not your uncle. You will figure it out.

SSSJ.....I had a job 20+ yrs ago that paid over $80,000 easily over 120,000 in todays money...I HATED IT!!!! One of the best things I did was the day I walked out. Next job paid 7.50 an hour.....went from corvette to a saturn, wife went from lincoln to a chevette....we went from a 14 room house to a trailer.......on the other side, I was home a LOT more, and my toddler son actually knew who I was.....since then I have done different things, for different pay scales, and always been happier with lower paying jobs that I liked doing a lot more...

Do what is in your heart, you passion, not only will you love it, you will be great at it. dont ever close the door on anything....you never know what lies in the cards!!

Great workouts by the way!

The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
