How's your food intake?  You can't out-exercise a poor diet.  But it will help for sure, and I'm glad you are incorporating strength training!

 i'm on weight watchers actually, I eat lean protien like chicken, pork. sometimes beef. alot of fresh fruits and alot of veggies. i'm thinking i may need to incoperate some more protien to help recover from muscle soreness oh and potasium. but banana's give me awful heart burn.. what else is good for potasium?

What about beans, legumes, nuts, quinoa, and other non-meat sources of protein?  Fish is also good, and tuna is actually a good source of potassium.  I have a list of high potassium foods (click here).  Basically all fresh fruits and vegetables have at least some potassium.  Potassium also works to lower your blood pressure.

Water is actually more important for muscle soreness.  Make sure you keep moving, too, to keep blood flow going to your muscles.  After you lift weights, a little protein is good, and after you do cardio, more carbs than protein (usually a 3:1 or 4:1 ratio).
