So everyone knows that beginning any workout regimen is gonna leave you sore. But as I've continued its no big deal. I definitely don't miss being sore but does that mean workouts are getting too easy or I'm just awesome at what I'm doing (jk). Keep in mind that I try to change up my workouts daily and please answer if you can. Thanks!

Of course it is! If you didn't get sore, then you didn't work out right or enough.

Soreness after a workout means that wherever your pain is your body's building lean muscle over it. So you notice after your soreness goes away, if you do the same workout again, you will find it much easier

Hence the saying, "no pain, no gain."

Yes, I think if you aren't getting sore at all, you have to kick it up a notch. You should definitely feel some tiny bit of pain after a workout. I've been sore all week since my first workout (in a long time) on Tuesday, but I've done a lot of stretches and worked through it (mindful to not pull anything). 

Congrats on not being sore in your current workouts, because that means you accomplished and kicked booty at that level. Just kick it up a notch now. :)
