Cardio Max – Level 1 – Day 1

Did Cardio Max today for the first time. Wow. It’s tough. But I think I like it. For those of you who haven’t tried this DVD, Bob leads it and you customize your workout so you select what you want to do: warm up, Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and cool down. Once you select the workouts you want to do, they just play one after the other.

I only did the warm up and Level 1. I did some of the cool down, which is very yoga-inspired, but B insisted that I sit down so that he could do yoga on his own.

Anyhow, today was a pretty good day. Not only did I exercise, but I also ate quite well including lots of fruits and veggies. I drank lots of water, didn’t go crazy with anything and I tracked it all on my Sparkpeople page. Yay! This is the kind of day I needed. Thinking I might try the yoga DVD tomorrow.I am going to hurt tomorrow and even more so on Saturday, but it was definitely my kind of workout. Weights were optional, though if you’ll recall I only own 10 pound weights. I think I made it through about three-quarters of the video using the weights when they were called for but by the end I was pretty spent. My legs were especially burning.
