Here’s the latest installment of Loni Works It Out, where OK!’s Beauty and Health Editor Loni Albert chronicles her trials and travails as she attempts to slim down like a superstar. Follow her on OKmagazine.com every week and on Twitter!

No pain, no gain. Feel the burn. Pain is weakness leaving the body. Be all that you can be. Every journey begins with a single step. That which doesn’t kill me can only make me stronger. Okay I’ve run out of cliché motivational workout phrases and lyrics, but I think you get my point, yes?

After my week off, I am back in the gym full-swing, hitting it hard, working it out like nobody’s business! And my New Year’s resolution? To not complain to Trainer Bill when he: tells me to lunge with 25 pounds in each hand, hold a plank for an extra 45 seconds, or adds 50 pounds to the leg press, etc. I’m sucking it up and making it happen and even though it hurts and it’s really really hard, it also feels really really good to see just how much I can accomplish. Oh, and it’s totally working.

Check out how I’m doing it:
