Hello Muscles!

So after taking a 10 day break while I was sick I hit the gym yesterday. Funny how every time I go back to my weight lifting class I'm so sore again for days.

So, when something is hard do you think it's just easier to stop or if you keep working at it it will get easier?

Just wondering? No one else has posted for days so I thought I would give who ever is reading this tonight something to think about.


  1. I think we've just hit the totally insane busy time of year. It's really going to be a challenge to keep up with our healthy habits when we don't have the usual amount of mental energy.

    Yep, going back to something you haven't done for a while, it can be a challenge. But I find that I enjoy a good "burn" once in a while, when you challenge your body beyond it's usual comfort zone. It's a great feeling afterwards, even more mental/psychological than physical.

  2. Yes, yes, yes on all accounts. I have been slacking on a lot of things lately and feel that constant reminder that my body is out of sync with my healthier ways. When it comes to exercise, I try to push though the hard things, like when I am running up a hill, I always try to make it to the top before allowing myself to let up a little. I think in the long run it is easier even if it is hard at the time. Does that make sense? Speaking of hard things, I need to get back to my weight training. I have been super slacking on that. Sore muscles here I come!

  3. Cammy! I am so glad you are back with the blog full force. I have missed you. I for sure think that it is better to keep plugging along, like Cammy said. Usually practice makes things much easier in the long run. Although, taking a break isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes our bodies can get burned out, and we need to take a recovery week to allow it to push past that.

  4. I've been a total slacker the past two months, just can't seem to get myself motivated to exercise consistently. My muscles are never sore even after I've been off for a few days. Clearly I'm not working hard enough.
