My legs shake during weight lifting workouts every time, haha. Oh squats. If I don't end a workout feeling like I got my ass beat, it wasn't a good workout. But then again I'm slightly insane.

When you push yourself to that level, that's when changes happen. It's good for you!

Starting the "transformation" weight loss routine. 25 minutes of intense workout 5 days a week. Also doing a low carb diet. I'm scared because my body is in bad shape (really bad back & feet, and moderately bad hips and knees) but I'm going to do this. I'm ready.

I love that feeling. I didn't when I started but now if I don't feel dead then I don't feel like I worked hard enough. Even the last workout of the program, I KNOW I should've been lifting 30s but I didn't and I'm still mad.

I never thought I'd be like this but omg must be sweaty and barely able to function to feel fulfilled!

So was mine 6 months ago. I could barely get through the 10 minute workout. Keep working, take one workout at a time and don't beat yourself up if you have trouble. You took a while to get out of shape, you won't get into shape overnight.

You're "I'm going to do this. I'm ready" is exactly the right attitude!

Thank you!! That's really encouraging! I wouldn't be too worried about the soreness or the pain part of it except that I'm doing the work out every weekday morning at 8 am and then I go in to work for an 8-9hr day. And I really don't want to be like...crying in pain at my job all day! LOL.

You're very welcome. Remember the old "no pain, no gain" adage? It's bullshit. Working out shouldn't cause "pain". Sure, it should "hurt", but there is a difference. If it was easy, it wouldn't be called a "work"out.

Soreness is one thing. Pain is another. You can push through soreness. You need to treat the cause of pain.

For me, today I did that 2.3 mile route again. I did it before breakfast. I did need to stop because I had decided to try a pair of orthotic inserts in my running shoes that I use in my walking shoes and my umpire base shoes to give a little more support. I have been dealing with some Plantar fasciitis symptoms lately, especially since I started running again. I get relief from stretching and icing and it doesn't bother me when I run, but I figured I'd try the inserts to give more support to the tendon. I stopped about 2 blocks into my run to remove the inserts because I was cramping where it was pushing. Who knows what damage I would have done if I had "pushed through the pain" on that. I just shoved them in the pockets of my shorts and got back on my way. No problems after that. I have taken a 20 oz soda bottle, filled it with water and froze it solid. Then after my runs and a few times a day, I get it out and roll it under my foot for 10 or 20 minutes to reduce inflammation. It seems to be working, because my pain level on waking was significantly less today.

I'm sore today. But I am finding this is a good boost to make me want to eat healthier. I packed myself a lunch today which doesn't seem like a big deal but it really is for me. I always buy lunch at work.

Thanks Eddie! I'll keep that in mind! It makes a lot of sense.

Just got back from my first morning of work out. The friend I'm doing it with didn't get a chance to get her weight room cleaned out so we decided to walk. What should've been 25 minutes ended up being 47 minutes and change. XD But I actually feel good. My back and feet got a little sore, but they seem in decent shape right now. And I got a charley horse in my leg while walking and had to stop and stretch it out, but it also feels fine now. Maybe I'm in shock or something LOL! J/k but it wasn't too horrible. I feel tired and a bit sore, but good.
