Know that your body is going to revolt at first. You’ve been lounging on the couch all winter so don’t expect your body to be joyous about this newfound fitness regime. It needs to be jump started and that may take a few weeks. It will take a while for your body to get used to exercise. Within six-weeks, your body will have adapted and can now endure harder and lengthier work outs. Even when your muscles are screaming at you “STOP!”, don’t. Go at a slow but regular pace and it will get easier! Remember, you didn’t gain all the weight in a day, it will take more than day to take it off! Your body will thank you!
