Yes, today is the first day of my new exercise routine. It's time I got serious about cardio and did some of it ! When I took my running class they recommended that we have three days of cardio. This could be anything but running. For the last 3-4 months I have been breezing into the gym to do my training with Shayla and then heading straight home. Not anymore! On training days I will follow with cardio. Today I did the elliptical for 30 minutes. Let me tell you at 8 minutes I wanted to jump off the thing and go but I thought I would go to 15 and at 15 I stayed until 30 minutes had passed. Yea 1 day of cardio done.

As far as training went she kicked butt with me. We did lunges, squats. and abs along with shoulders. Some new ways to do them.

Yesterday I went up to run on the treadmill but was having some problems so ended up doing 15 minutes on treadmill and 15 minutes on the bike.

Saturday afternoon I went to a nutrition seminar that was very enlightening. I learned a few things that I hadn't known and it helped to reinforce how important a healthy nutritious diet is. Now that summer is here and the farmers markets are around it is a great time to try and add more fresh fruits and veggies to your diet.
