My brother is in the Marine Corps, so of course, he is super fit. (He came home, and we almost didn't recognize him because he's so thin! My mom and I were like, "Okay, all we need to reach our goal weights is the Marine Corps boot camp!")

Anyway, I talked to him about workouts before I got started again, and he said, "If I don't puke after a workout, I know I didn't push myself hard enough." I looked at him like he was a martian, lol.

So, I think it is probably a sign that you're pushing yourself really hard. It's not necessarily a bad thing, and I've been there before too, even with the chest pains. (Which I have chalked up to my heart not being in tip top shape, but I also track my heart rate while exercising to make sure I'm not going too far.) Good luck and way to go on the workouts!
