I thought it would get easier

Is it just me, or has working out been getting a little harder?

Maybe I did it wrong at first, but I definitely feel the burn more now than I did when I first started.

Last night I did pilates, (which is usually pretty easy compared to the 30 day shred) and it took about all my energy to be able to finish 30 minutes!

Am I doing something wrong, or does this happen for you guys too?

Yeah it usually gets worse before it gets better for me too, I notice I get better form the more I do it, making the workout even more intense! As long as you do feel bad pain (like lower back pain, that is not muscle or joint pain) you are probably fine :) It gets better, I promise!

I'm so sore, I can't even type right now.

Pilates was a good choice. You need to allow your body a day to rest once a week! Otherwise it'll use up all of it's energy and you'll be like Helena! hehe -JK! :)

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
