so sore... how am I still moving?

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

How can I still be moving when I'm this sore? I can't hardly breathe without it hurting somewhere!
Lunges are the culprite I think.... and crunches of course! it's my butt and my abs that are killing me!

It makes me wonder.... at what point should I not be this dang sore? At what point does it get better and I don't want to quit! Shawn told me that when your body gets comfortable you need to change things up because you're not doing it any good if it's comfortable.... but I don't want to be this sore all the time! Its no fun! I mean I think I can handle it if it's for a couple of days, but to spend forever this dang sore... no thanks!

so at what point does it get better? If I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, I'm more likely to keep going!
Like yesterday on the elliptical.... I could watch the time and know that I only had 30 more seconds or whatever... I knew I could do anything for just that much longer.... so how much longer is "just that much longer"....

I don't want it to be easy, but its very discouraging to be this sore, and not be seeing the results on the scale or in the measurements and how my clothes are fitting.... heck at this point, I want to stay in my workout clothes because it hurts to change! lol!

    Thanks for the encouragement ~ it's better today, so it's just soreness and not something strained I think!

    I understand that chocolate milk, after a workout, is supposed to help reduce the soreness you feel after a workout. I love the sore muscles, the day after a workout. It makes me feel like I accomplished something. I am not usually in the amount of pain, that it sounds like you are in. That isn't normal. Sounds like you need to take it a little easier. Don't give up. Weightloss will happen. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Talk to your trainer about your soreness. Are you sore all over? Or is there a localized pain? If you're sore all over you need to cool down more and stretch after working out. If you have a localized pain you may have pulled something. Communication is key when working with a personal trainer. Keep him in the loop. Best wishes--hope you feel better! emoticon
