Last weekend (not this past weekend), we helped some people we know move. Oh man! What a work-out!! Haha. It was really hot, which also didn't help. It was much better moving stuff in the evening, than in the afternoon. I tried to help as much as I could, but I was a bit disappointed to be faced with how out of shape I am compared to when I was helping people move in university. But it does motivate me to keep exercising to improve my fitness level.

I knew that I would be sore afterward. The next day I was really sore, which made me worried for the dreaded second day after. I tried to stretch out the muscles and I do think it helped. The second day I woke up in the middle of the night and had to go to the bathroom - oy! I could barely move! Haha. But by the morning I was able to move a bit more.

I tried to kind of keep walking around through the day (slowly) and I think it helped. It didn't take too long for the soreness to subside.

    Isn't it great when we use those muscles that we thought we used all the time and WHAM, NOT!! LOL - glad you are feeling better!

    In the future, don't forget that moving includes physical exertion, not all that different from working out. So prepare for it just like you'd prepare for working out - wear the right clothes and supportive shoes, be sure to warm up before starting, drink plenty of water, take short breaks now and again, and cool down at the end. That should help.

    It is amazing what we find out we've not built or moved much when moving. I love my new fitness center/gym because it is functional fitness which makes all that stuff easier. Keep truckin'
