Real-People-WorkingOut

What Should You Do If You Miss a Workout?

I get a lot of questions about what to do if you miss a workout. Sometimes workouts get skipped because you’re sick. Or because you’re traveling. Or for some other reason, like a snow storm.

If you miss a day (or two, or three), just get back at it as if nothing has happened, starting with cardio, and a basic weighted workout, push ups, squats, abdominals. Miss much longer and you have got a decision to make. You can either start the program over from scratch, or ramp yourself back to the place you were when you stopped.

Ultimately, when you get back to your program, what you do is really about what will keep you motivated. That said, doing your( cardio on the treadmill)  full program as scheduled is the best way to make sure you get full benefit from it. If you just miss a few days, it’s fine to resume where you left off, but if it’s been weeks, you’ probably have lost most of your gains fitness-wise, so it’s worth starting from scratch in order to get the most possible gains and to avoid injury. Personal Training is a great way to re- energize your program. I can develope a whole program for you to change those old  moves that your muscles have developed a memory for. Everyone reaches a plateau.

 If you have been off more than 5 or 6 days, ramp back up slowly or you’ll risk getting so sore you can hardly move by exhausting all of your fast-twitch muscle fibers. 
Just remember, NEVER give up.

There is nothing like a lazy Sunday when you have a meal cooking all day in the crock pot and the aroma of food is in the air, or coming home from work on a weeknight and having dinner ready when you get home. This  chicken chili is a delicious, high fiber meal. It's so easy to make and it is great wth low fat sour cream. This makes a lot and it is even better the next day for lunch!

Forgiveness is the economy of the heart. . . . Forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.

Forgiveness definitely can erase anger and hatred, as long as it's sincere and not put on as a show.  Saying "I forgive you" and truly forgiving them in my heart are two different things.   
We can give our hearts a true gift when we forgive someone, for the heart will no longer be burdened by our negative feelings towards another human being.
