If you lightly stretch out your calves after your jog, it'll help loads with the soreness. Give it two bouts of ten seconds per leg.

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.

I'm struggling now with jogging.. lastnight I did 30 minutes on the spot and my muscles are killing me at the bottom and back of my legs. It's too sore to run today.. I did 10 minutes earlier which of course wont help me in any way... any ideas?

I'm also wondering if anyones used the "Twist Board" or maybe you call it the "Balance Board" - stand on it and twist yourself left to right. Does this work..? I purchased one today from Asda. I was twisting on it for 10 minutes tonight and used my 5lb weights doing arm curls.

I'm going to start having a yogurt drink + apple for breakfast. I have chicken near enough everyday so I'm good for protein. Most days I have either carrots and peas or red pepper and onion. Going to start buying some healthy ready meals aswell. I also drink water everyday, no fizzy drinks.

I feel so stuck with losing weight, I feel like nothings working..
Give it some time and it will work.

You could also do sit ups, push ups, lunges or those killer burpees.

If you haven't started already, logging your food is a good idea since eating the right foods is the biggest factor in losing weight.
