New Question

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


How do you feel when you miss a work out?


Fine. That's life sometimes!

Slightly guilty, but I usually find a way to be more active the next day.

Anxious and guilty. I can't stop beating myself up about it.

I was told to give up my scale by my nutritionist. She say's that's no longer my concern and I'm to focus on building lean mass.
I hate the idea, as I use it as a starting point in my evaluation. Each week I like to see what I weigh, review my work outs for increased intensity, time or resistance, review my nutrition and look at what made me feel better or worse. It's like giving up one tool but I suppose there are plenty of others in the chest. I have to admit I've yet to go one day without stepping on. Maybe I'll try tomorrow since I already weighed in at the gym this morning.

Train with purpose, train with passion...

1) I could, I wouldn't, I don't think you should give up the scale because it is one of many ways to judge how healthy you are.

2) I do not fear giving up the scale because I am not obsessed with weighing myself.

3) The scale is only one of many ways to measure success or failure, although I think it is the easiest more consistent way even though that may differ depending on your ratio of fat to muscle. You can also judge by how your clothes fit but if you buy bigger clothes then they are no longer tight. Taking your measurements takes more time but can be a little different depending on who measures and how tight the tape is held. Medical tests like blood pressure and cholesterol are better but you need to see your doctor for cholesterol,

Another day another step closer to a healthy life.
