    I did my first bit of exercise yesterday in quite a long time!

    Oh dear! My thighs are killing me! Every time I get out of my chair this morning I feel the need to groan lol

    I only did 20 minutes of kettlenetics and was knackered ~ show's how unfit I am! :eek:

    Got a rest day today and then got to do it all over again tomorrow!!!

    Good for you- well done on that first step

    Make sure you are warming up/down properly and stretching after exercise as this will help with the ache the next day.

    Think of the benefits of this- looking better, feeling fitter, getting leaner.....living longer!!!- a few aches are well worth that

    Well done! It gets easier, the main thing is to keep exercising but to build it up slowly. Also, make sure you drink 2ltrs of water a day, especially as it helps to repair the muscle :)

    I am drinking lots of water and I did the warm up and cool down on the dvd ;)

    Good luck to everyone with upping their fitness too

    Kettlenetics is a 4lb kettlebell that comes with 5 dvd workouts, you swing the ball and lift it up and down while doing the exercises. It's quite knackering lol but I did enjoy it

    Aches & pains are gone today but I'm doing it again tonight so they may well be back tomorrow lol

    I've been meaning to buy a kettle bell for some time now as it takes up alot let space than barbells/dumbells etc. Well done for taking the plunge by the way! I miss how refreshed you feel after a workout. I havent pulled my finger out yet but I may well get started tonight! Thanks for the inspiration..

    I've just been out for my first jog in a year!!! I used to be a very keen runner, but had surgery on my neck 4 months ago & was off sick for a year!!! I would try & keep active by powerwalking with my dog, but the pounds have piled on ......hence SW & now jogging again, as Im now happy my head wont fall off my shoulders & the metal plate wont pop out !!!

    Wow can't believe I'm being an inspiration - I feel great that a hardened couch potato can get up and do something and inspire others to do the same - I'm even more determined to keep it up now! And if I can do it anyone can ;)

    After a while, it'll stop hurting when you exercise, and then you'll want the pain just so you know you're pushing yourself! :p

    My thighs are still hurting after running 500m for a bus at the fastest I've ever run (seriously, you'd have thought the bus was a giant burger with large fries and a vanilla milkshake!) and a bit of bedroom body magic... And that was on Friday! Walked 12k today, what am I gonna be like tomorrow?!

    After my first 'proper' swim (only managed 14 lengths, i used to do 100) in years i got up next morning and could barely move. I was so grateful i live in a bungalow as i would never have made it downstairs lol. 3 weeks later i am up to doing 30/40!
    Good luck :) stick with it and a nice steady gentle walk might loosen you up a bit!
