Still Alive

You're probably wondering if I'm still around after announcing my big intentions yesterday to exercise. Well, I'm still here--quite sore, but still here! I have to say, it was a good workout. I really enjoyed the video and I would recommend it if you're in the market for one. Vince and I have watched the last few seasons of The Biggest Loser and really enjoy it (as we sit on our couch stuffing down chips or something equally healthy). There's lots of drama, of course, it is a game. But it's really great to see how the contestants improve their health and transform their bodies and self-images. It's inspiring even. It was fun to see some of our show faves on the video, too.
So, I think I'm going to stick with this. The dvd program is broken up into three different workouts: weeks 1 & 2 , weeks 3 & 4 and weeks 5 & 6. So far I've only done the first one. It has a warm-up segment, the main workout, and a cool down. I was familiar with most of the moves in the warm-up & workout segments (not that I'm coordinated enough to have mastered them yet), but the cool down was all yoga stretches which I've never done before. I really liked them! It was a nice way to wrap up the workout.
So there you go: The Biggest Loser Workout, Cardio Max.

Hey! I'm glad you survived TBL workout...I've seen it advertised and considered getting it. I've watched the show for several seasons now and am always inspired and amazed at the transformations that happen to the people on the show. I just finished reading Bob Harper's book "Are You Ready!" It was pretty good...I think I'd really enjoy the workout DVD. Might have to give it a whirl! STick with it, girl!
