Just popping in to share my journal and this quote…

“Low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better.” Barrie Davenport

  • 5:40 a.m. 1/2 banana with peanut butter smeared on it
  • 7:15 a.m. Post workout shake (1 scoop)

  • 8 p.m. Quick homemade “tortilla” soup. I took leftover taco chicken and added it to homemade broth with some leftover farro and then topped it with avocado, scallions and cilantro.

Activity Journal

  • 6 a.m. Workout: Worked to a 223 lb deadlift for 1 rep. Not my best. I just wasn’t feeling it. I also did the Scaled Open 15.4 workout of 10 push press + 10 power cleans. I did 86 reps.


  • Good on the water
  • supplements taken

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I love that quote. So often I have heard that you can be happy, you just have to work at it. My own self-confidence has been in the toilet most of my life. But as I grow older it gets better. The healthier I get physically the better my emotional self gets.

      IT’s so true and for happiness too! I mean you can’t just flip a switch but you can take small steps to build happiness and confidence!

    Wonderful quote, and a perfect day for me to read it. Thank you Roni. By the way, sunflower seeds in a salad (in your food journal above) is SO delicious. I always forget that.
