It's finally good to be sore!

Friday, August 13, 2010

Sure, I've been sore for months. But this morning is different. This morning, I'm sore because I actually used muscles. I can feel the muscles in my legs, glutes, and abs! I had forgotten what a wonderful feeling it is to wake up in the morning and feel the burn. I push myself very hard when I lift. Even after a hiatus of almost 2 years, I remember how to push my body to its limits. LIfting until the muscle won't lift any more, then dropping weight & doing it again. I'm determined to not only lose weight this time, but sculpt my body into the shape I've always dreamed of. So how about three cheers for soreness?

    WooHoo! I have that good soreness that comes after a hard workout as well, it feels great to know I'm finally doing something for my body. The trick for me is being consistent. I wish you only the best and hope that you reach all your goals!
