  • Id say it's normal for you, but if you skip a workout then do crazy shit like vomit a meal up or skip meals to make up for it you may have an issue.

  • LOL, yes I get like that too. I try to work out everyday but I know that sometimes that is an unreasonable expectation. Just tell yourself that skipping a workout here and there is OK.

  • Yes! I started out at 167 lbs and a size 12 in Dec. 09'... within 9 months, I had lost 57 lbs and over 50"... 110 lbs and a size 0. I injured my foot running recently while in training for a 1/2 marathon and now I'm on "injured reserve". I am doctor ordered NOT to work out AT ALL for 2 weeks....this is the end of week 1... the meds made me sick so I can't take them and my foot is still in pain...one more week...that is all I keep chanting to myself. I will die if she doesn't release me next week. I'm a runner and a Beachbody coach..my life revolves around fitness, health and my family! I have gained 2 lbs back recently and while I *know* it's only water weight...it is driving me nuts that I can't work out and have it gone asap. I understand!

  • I feel guilty, blah and cranky if I miss a workout. I'm currently in the wind down period of training for a marathon and on my last long run (25 miles) my knee started hurting pretty bad. Knowing I'd worked too hard for 13 weeks to be stupid and continue running on it, I took it easy Mon - Wed. I did spin class which didn't hurt my knee but doesn't give me the same sweatfest as running does. By thu I felt bloated and cranky. BUT with lots of stretching icing etc my knee felt better. Normally I'd have done strength training and spin on Mon/ Wed and run 10 miles on Tue, so I really scaled back an felt like crap! So yeah, I hate messing with my workout schedule!
