Scales will never reveal how you look.
While scales are a useful tool, use the mirror to determine your true progress toward your goal. That mental image of what you want to look like, compared to your current physique, will let you know what is bothering you and allow your trainer to assist you properly more than any number ever will. While some trainers will ask you for a goal weight, we are going to start your caloric change at the same amount whether you want to be 10 pounds lighter or shed 100 pounds.
Take a picture BEFORE your first workout, then every 30 days. Sick the picture to your mirror to compare in between photos workout taking more. Use the same clothes. In between pictures, pay attention to how your clothes fit better or become looser. Remember if you take pictures to often it can be hard to see small changes. Over time though, those small differences add up to big results.

Oh, and I just realized as well...I tend post the next day. So while this post is about day -4, I am sitting in day -3.
The first thing I do is head to the websites and download the races schedules for the series I plan on doing. I have uploaded my word doc so that you can see how much of a rough draft this is. Right now the MCCS series is being posted, so I will have to add that later. I will grab last year's dates as a place holder. And, I still need to print the INBA Natural Bodybuilding schedule. While dates may change throughout the year, at least you will have a point to deviate from. I will update the upload at the same location as it progresses (just in case you plan on racing in Hawaii, San Diego and on the East Coast). ;)
Now what do I do with these? Well, that will happen tonight and I will post then. :) baby steps...
Also, follow how I use THRIVE each day for the first 28 days on my Shelf Reliance Independent Consultant blog. And, if that is not enough to keep me busy, follow our preps to sail across the pacific in June on my personal blog Raising Poseidon. Alright. So, off to write the first two days of posts! Cheers!
"The THRIVE food line consists of the same foods you would purchase at the market—fruits, veggies, meats, beans, grains, dairy, and the basics—only with THRIVE you don’t have to dash to the store every time you run out of essential ingredients such as eggs or milk." Read More...
I believe in these foods as they are as close to fresh as you can get if there is no fresh available. They are also a great, cost-saving way to help cook in your daily life. See how I use them here.
See you Thursday with a quick refresher on how your lower extremities work together, thanks to the ACSM Journal! :)
