You may have heard the famous quote “What gets measured gets managed” (Peter Drucker). This is especially true when it comes to health and fitness, but there is a caveat. When measuring becomes a stress and begins skewing what is being measured, or worse, begins taking the enjoyment out of the process it is time to rethink our perspective. The most obvious example of this is stepping on the scale to track body weight. In itself, this is not a bad tool to use when it is taken in to context and understood as such. However, the issue arises when we begin using it as our sole means of assessing progress and start creating an emotional attachment to the numbers.
