Dixibella its good that you are doing some kind of exercise and it sounds as if you were smart in taking it slow. Some folks decide they want to loose weight and go whole hog in the exercise then pay for it dearly the next day. Start off slow, and DO expect some soreness. You are working on muscles that haven't been used in awhile.
If you are sore you can take something over the counter such as Tylenol or Advil to help ease the soreness. Keep up the good work and kick the stinkin thinkin to the curb!
