Blown what? Really, what do you think you blow if you don't exercise for some period of time?

If you miss a few workouts, you don't instantly gain back all the weight you lost. You don't instantly lose all the strength and endurance you've gained. To the contrary it's probably a good thing for your body to have a rest week every once in a while.

And even if you do miss enough workouts that you do undo most of your progress - still, what have you blown?

Definitely, go easier on yourself. Missing workouts, just like eating off plan, is not a sin or a crime. There's nothing to feel guilty about. Just put it behind you and go do your next workout. Absolute perfection need not be your goal; but even if it is, there is no moral failing implied, no punishment due, for not quite attaining absolute perfection all the time.

* Say "no!" to my whiny inner five-year-old.
