Also, looks like I will be going to an indoor waterpark in March, I haven't worn a bathing suit in years. I just want to not look like a beached whale, hopefully this will continue to motivate me!
You and me both! I just found out we're going to an all-day staff retreat at a Nordic spa in mid-March. I'm not super-self-concious about my body, but **** I hate my thighs. Motivation, GO!

I feel your pain! The first time I did my bootcamp DVD the next three days were hell. I couldn't sit in a chair without lowering myself down, lol. I rested for 2 days, did yoga, then the bootcamp DVD again and I was fine!

Stick with it, it gets better!!!

Now that people are mentioning being sore, I remeber a question I had. In Anatomy we learned that this is called DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and is basically caused by little tears in your muscles. Since it is muscle damage should a person wait until the soreness is gone bfore working out that area again? Would working out despite the soreness cause more damage?

Short answer is no, working out with DOMS will not do more damage. Long answer coming after I get off my conference call at work (unless somebody else beats me to it.)

Had a few bad days over the weekend away from home, so I am going to finish eating some leftovers today and starting a 3 or 4 day fat fast tomorrow.

OH GOD HELP ME. I like cream cheese but not that much.

Wish me luck, please. Maybe I'll even lose some weight, which I hadn't really managed to do for the last 3 weeks.

Um, yeah. I'm going to have to try this.

I don't remember where we were talking about froyo and dairy, but I looked up CherryBerry's ingredients, and they use corn syrup. I didn't look through all of them, but the Classic Tart contains sugar and no corn syrup. Judging by their flavors, I don't think their supplier is YoCream, but nearly all YoCream flavors contain corn syrup. The NSA ones don't have sugar or corn syrup, obviously, but they do have artificial sweeteners. Working with frozen yogurt has taught me way more than I ever needed to know.

Adding on to the froyo discussion, if you want some really good frozen yogurt, go to Pinkberry. And I'm not even saying that just because I work there (I don't). Their ingredients are much better than other places I've been, and in turn their yogurt is AMAZING.

What bootcamp dvd do you have? I've been trying to find one I like but can't.

Okay, so on the subject of DOMS:

DOMS is, like many things, a spectrum. You might feel a little sore (like I do today) or you might feel REALLY sore (like I did yesterday, when it was incredibly painful on my shoulders/arms/chest just to reach down to pull up my pants.)

If you're just a little sore, buck up, stop whining, and get on with it.

If you're moderately sore, do a serious evaluation. Are you being a pansy and using "I'm SOOOORE!" as an excuse to skip a workout? Or are you edging into "really sore" territory? If the former, see "just a little sore." If the latter, see below.

If you're REALLY sore to the point you're having mobility problems such as struggling to reach down and pull up your pants:
First, the important thing to note is that working out while sore has NOT been shown to damage your muscles. Working out while sore HAS been shown to potentially delay healing, cause swelling, and prolong the amount of time you're suffering from serious DOMS. And if you're sore and it REALLY hurts and you're trying to power through your workout as usual, you very well may subconsciously perform differently to try and avoid the pain - your brain wants you to avoid the pain! PAIN BAD! So say you might do your squats wrong because your back hurts and isn't moving the way it normally does. That's a GREAT way to actually hurt yourself, and I'm not talking microscopic-tears-in-your-muscles hurt.

So what are your options? For a lot of people who push themselves hard routinely, if you skipped a workout every time you were REALLY sore, you'd skip a LOT of workouts... so don't skip a workout. Change your workout.

a) Go lighter or easier. Instead of loading up the bar with weight, do your squats with just the bar itself - or even just body weight squats. Ain't nothin' wrong with a body weight squat. If you were planning on a five mile run today but your legs are just shy of literally killing you, go for a five mile walk instead (or I tend to go on a shorter, slower run.)

b) Alter the muscle group you're using to avoid overworking the muscles that are making you want to cut off entire limbs. This is tough with a lot of workouts, particularly when you're on free weights; a proper squat is going to work **** near your whole body rather than just your legs, for example - but just because it's tough doesn't mean it impossible. Your calves hurt, so do push-ups and pull-ups instead. Your arms hurt, so ride a bike, go for a run, or do some leg lifts. Guarantee there's an exercise you can do that will still get your body moving and working, but won't put additional stress on your super-sore muscles.


It is INSANELY important to not cheat yourself out of muscle recovery (and growth) by not properly feeding your body, not drinking enough water, and not getting enough sleep. So do that too. And don't forget the mantra of "if it hurts, don't do it." But be realistic with yourself on what "hurts" versus "feels uncomfortable."
If you're in serious pain and everything really, truly hurts, rest.

But for most of us struggling with DOMS, most of the time... buck up, buttercup, and go work out.
