BTW - Thanks SED and LVC for the sound advice. I stayed home, went to bed early and feel much better today!

KIND - Get rid of that dang scale! From what you indicate, you're doing what you need to do to get fit. You'll be fine, keep your good choices in mind, do your walking, do the Yoga, etc. It'll be good!

Just for comparison - I used to watch the scale daily. I always worried about what I ate and did little, if any, exercise (you've got me beat there already).

If I was in "diet" mode, I used to be able to lose 20-25 pounds no problem over a 6-8 month period, but then I'd gain it back because I'd get off the "diet". Not healthy at all.

Fast forward to now. 7 months of Weight and Cardio training (Crossfit) and better eating habits (note: not a diet by any means, just making better choices and smaller portions). Guess what? in 7 months I've only lost 6 pounds...OMG only 6 pounds!? Call the diet police, he's not losing any weight!! Arghhhhh.

But on the other hand, I've lost 6+ inches in my waist, my arms and legs are the most defined they've been, ever. I feel better, I look better and I will continue this path. My BP is almost back to normal too. I'm more FIT.

It took me this lesson to get away from the scale. I only get on one now when I see my Doc for regular checkups.

You'll do fine, don't worry, be happy and fit!

Kind listen to me, your fear is normal :). Almost every person that I helped achieve their goals, I deliberately *set free* (as we referred to it) for four weeks, sometimes six. To teach them how to adjust to a life without a trainer who will train them and give them nutritional advice (though I tried not to, because trainers should train, they're not nutritionists). I've prepped them with lots of tips for activities.

You should like you understand what you need to do. Stop stressing, when you stress you develop cortisol which prevents you from losing weight :). Relax babe, whenever you feel this stress and anxiety of not having a trainer around, take a deep breath and tell yourself, I will do what I was taught to do, instead of a treadmill I'll walk, I will take yoga, which is a lot of fun and so good for you, I will make new friends in Yoga from whom I'll bounce healthy ideas, etc... you get the drift!

Stop stressing the pounds will start melting! :)

I second that. If you're tired, sick, blech. 1. If tired/not enough sleep/too many WODs in a row - you are not working out effectively - so you aren't really getting much benefit from strength or metcon. 2. If you're sick, you run the risk of changing the health of those you work out with (direct or indirect germ contact). 3. If you're "blech" then seen #1.

For me today would be a "rest" day. Too many workout days in a row. Plus I have a sore throat and feeling blech (catching up on sleep, new bug bites itching like you-know-what). However, it's an "active" rest day because I have to do my AF Fit Test in about 2 hours from now. 1 min each of pushups and situps, then run 1.5 miles as fast as I can. I'll pass, no doubt, but the mild OCD in me really wants that perfect score (won't happen because I cannot run it under 11:20, even when I'm full of piss & vinegar/rested/100% healthy).

itsbeen - active rest = going for a walk, a hike, an easy swims, take a yoga class, get a massage.

SED - You should never workout when you are under the weather. ------------------------ That's good enough for me...LOL

FBF - Being sick now on top of the ankle....not feeling very strong or wanting to go to box tonight. (went last two days no problem) Anybody know if it's better to rest when sick with a cold or should I "work" it out of my system?

What Vegas said.

I would have it looked at by your doctor.

Kind - sounds like a deltoid tendonitis. I had that. Took a few months to completely heal (cause I'm a stubborn SOB who refused to take time off) I put a tight band around the bottom of the deltoid muscle to apply pressure to take some stress off the tendon that attaches the deltoid to the humerus.
