I was at the gym today working out. At one point I got into a conversation with the trainer about how to measure your progress.
There are many ways to measure fitness. It really depends a lot on what your goals are.
I was searching for a simple way to talk about it. And then I had an inspiration.
I pointed first to my belly, and then to the barbell. “I think the long term goal,” I said, “is to take weight off of here, and put it on there.”
