Things that make your muscles sore

This from the lady that, until a year ago, worked out 5 days a week....what happened to me?????

One of our sons got married and after the wedding was over, I just stopped....just like that...cold turkey. It isn't hard to stop exercising cold turkey, no patch needed, nothing, just quit. So, one year later......cellulite for the first time in my life on my thighs, but on my stomach??? I didn't even get stretch marks from pregnancy. O.K. you get the picture, I'm out of shape.

So, Friday I held a baby for maybe 45 minutes....mostly sitting and rocking. Saturday morning my arms were sore. Saturday, my husband and I took our bikes and drove them out to 30-A where there is a nice bike trail. We rode bikes for about an hour then loaded them up, drove to a little market restaurant and had fried grouper! Sunday morning, my legs felt like wooden poles..oh, why did I give up exercise! My muscles obviously have atrophied!

Sunday started out normal, we went to Sunday School and Church, came home and rested a little while. I started out to go see my mama with my purse, keys, sunglasses, cell phone and a bag of garbage in my hands. It had been raining hard and small amounts of water had come under the garage door. As I got right to the garbage can, my foot slipped in the water and I came down HARD on my thigh/hip. So of course I screamed for my husband in fear that I had broken something....o.k. he says I'm a little dramatic. He picked me up and I could walk. I got my senses back and went to mama's, but it really shook me now I have a huge black and blue thigh muscle! I'm guessing I really have worked out this weekend! I'm limping around on that leg, again so my sweet husband can tell me how dramatic I am. My daddy always said it was no use to feel bad if you don't moan and complain....I always do what my daddy taught me.

I hope you all had a great weekend.
