"On the Go" Vs "missed Approach"

When practicing multiple approaches in VFR conditions with a safety pilot, I typically tell the tower "Cessna 123, on the go" to let them know I'm done with the approach and climbing per "climb out" instructions given to me by approach control. I reserve the term "missed approach" for when I'm actually executing a missed approach. My safety pilot asked me the other day, why I say "on the go", I never really thought about it, I was just taught that way.

Do you guys in the tower find that confusing? Comments?

No it is not confusing at all to say you’re on the go. I would say it is more confusing to say you’re going missed approach when you’re not actually conducting a missed approach procedure.

Thanks for the clarification. That was my understanding, but I earned my IFR rating so long ago, I'm always second guessing myself when young whipper-snappers tell me something new. :)
