How do you know you had a good workout?

You hurt. EVERYWHERE. Even stretching is painfully uncomfortable. So did I over do it? Yes. I did stick to the Body for Life plan this whole week. I just got in from my 20 min cardio this morning. Six days. It is a start.

For some reason I stopped last December. Overwhelmed. Stressed. I'm not really sure. I've been at the gym sporadically since then. It is time to push hard again.

Now I need to get the diet component back in line. I've been doing this over the past couple of weeks, getting used to smaller portions, more meals, etc.

Overall I feel great, even though I cannot move without pain and groaning.

Asperger's support group in 30 mins, wash cars, and parties tonight. Sunday will hopefully be surfing, sun, and sleep. :-)

Que tenga un buen dia! (hope I got that right)


  1. WELL DONE! Sounds like a good week ;o) And good luck!!

  2. I love that feeling of falling into bed after a good work out - your body and mind are just ready to sleep!

    Keep up the fun and good work!

  3. The good thing, if there is a good thing to being so sore, is that you are clearly quite an active person to begin with. Good luck with this endeavor!

  4. Laura,
    Thanks. Hopefully I can make the effort to keep it going. While I stay active, it isn't the same as a good workout.

    Don't you know it. :-) If I can just get through the stress I have I could actually enjoy a good nights sleep for a change.

    I have learned the key to getting through the soreness is to keep moving. :-) I can do that.

  5. Is hurting a sign of a good workout? Or a sign that you slacked off for too long ;)

    Just kidding. Sort of.

  6. Delightful,
    I've been slacking! I freely admit it. The first step to fixing a problem is recognizing there is one!


    I would of course love to know whether you are so direct with everyone or just me. ;) I might have to start doing some google searches.
