Weight. Years ago I read an interview with Frank Zane Former Mr Olympia about the limitations of using the scale to measure progress. He suggested that you use photos of yourself in the same light, same conditions to more accurately assess your progress.

💪🏼
Your weight is a reflection of so many variables. Many fail to realize the number on your scale affected by what you ate last night, the day you’re on in your cycle, hydration, inflammation, digestion, muscle soreness, last bowel movement, fat and muscle composition, time of day, stress, RX you maybe on, hormones and so on. Those who let the numbers between their toes control their mood, efforts and self-worth are fighting a battle they’ll never win. .
👍🏼
I use photos (taken once a month) to assess progress. I take a bunch. I put them in a separate folder and I pull them up to see that I’m making realistic and manageable progress. How I LOOK used to be my main measure of health. I’m much wiser now. When I looked my best I was the most unhealthy. .
👍🏼
I now use a Health assessment Tracker I created to measure my TRUE health. I keep track of mood, skin, hair, energy, mental clarity, hormones, sleep, strength, flexibility, lack of joint pain, nutritional efficiency, drive, enthusiasm for life, headaches, fatigue, recovery time, metabolic flexibility and how I feel over all. What we look like is only one teeny tiny little fraction of what it means to be healthy. So before we idolize someone with the physique we want, remember a photo doesn’t tell us what’s really going on with their health. My mission is to redefine what it means to be healthy.

👍🏼 and out of curiosity - do you weigh yourself? How often? How much does it impact how you feel about your progress?

Can I just tel you how grateful I am for all the amazing team who helped me to naturally heal my hamstring Avulsion in just 6 weeks. I am so grateful today for the set back as it forced me to focus on other things like upper body and core strength.
.
💪🏼 You must believe in yourself. You must take care of yourself and you must understand that if you create the right environment your body is capable of miraculous things. Don’t believe statistics. They don’t matter.

🌸 Thank you for all your support and if for any reason you are dealing with a soft tissue injury of any kind and would like to know more about the team I worked with and a protocol that I followed… I did a complete review of it in a recent podcast episode for #thechaleneshow entitled “How to Heal Naturally”. I’m happy.

When I hear women say, “I dont have supportive females in my life,” it makes me sad. I can’t imagine what life would be like without the countless strong female friends I have met through fitness. 🌸 We have to be that which we want to attract. And ladies - you have to put it out there. Boldly support other women with a common connection whom you admire. Be a fan of those doing great things. Reach out. Send her a DM and let her know you admire what she’s doing. 🌸 Rather than seeing those with a similar business or Mission as competition, see them as allies - future friends - a success partner. 🌸 I’m so grateful for virtual vibrations that have brought so many supportive, strong, beautiful women into my life - women like this gem @KaisaFit and so many more I could list who I have met in the last 10 plus years just through social media. Those women you want in your life don’t have to be in your neighborhood. (Thank you IG)
.
🌸 The connection often starts with a common interest like fitness or business but once you go a little deeper you may find someone who, just like you, really just wants to help people, someone who struggles, someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously and someone you can trust.
.
🌸
Ladies don’t be afraid to reach out to the women you admire, the women you want in your circle. Ignore the fear. Drop the comparisons. There’s enough to go around. Practice generously sharing what you know and helping others to rise above you.

Today I shared a new shopping hack that I think your husband is going to thank me for! I also saved it to my Instastory Highlights under “Fashion” (look at the area just below my profile) Full transparency this is my first month of using the service but I’m kinda excited and I love a good hook-up.
.
If you’ve used RTR unlimited service - let me know what you think. Tag a girlfriend who deserves a hook-up! Oh and if you WANT MORE of these kinda hacks and tips be sure to like this post so I know what you’d like to see more of! ❤️👠🌸💅🏼💯

UPDATE: Details in my instaStory Highlights Under the Fashion Tab.

💋
What if there was a club for girls like us who like to shop but it was more like a library and you didn’t have to buy the clothes - you could “check them out” like a book? And bring them back the next day or say 4 weeks later. Hmmm
.
🤫
Such a place does exist. And I almost spilled the beans today on my Insta story. But then the devil tapped me on the shoulder and said, “keep this little secret to yourself! It’s too good!“
.
😝This is not an ad! This is not a joke. I really am torn on whether I should spill the beans and tell you how I got all these cute clothes (which would likely result in them being sold out in my size) or if I should keep my mouth shut and enjoy my new discovery?
.
😝 I suppose the right thing to do is share. So tag a girl you know who likes to shop and if I see a boat load of girls wanna this crazy shopping hack - I’ll will SPILL on my Instastory tonight!

Because diets = DRAMA. If this isn’t pretty spot-on with your diet love life, I don’t know what is. 😂 Tag a friend who would SO relate. #131Method @131method

Slow. Steady. Simple = Progress! Question for you: As much as I know YOU know better how often do you judge your workout by how you sweat? Tag a Sweaty Betty and Explain ....

When riding a bike - choose a practical heel. #normal #pinkbike #melissashoes

(Oh Man I just ruined the whole aesthetic of my IG page with this dark background - ya gotta hit those angles.) .
