When doing cardio, some get caught up in the number of calories burned doing certain activities. When that happens, a person is likely to stick to only doing that exercise. That can cause you to end up with a plateau, boredom, and/or your body getting accustomed to doing the same thing every time. For those reasons and many more, we need to keep trying new cardio exercises and activities.
this weekend’s challenge is to focus on trying at least 2 new cardio exercises from your list or choose from the one posted below
Also, keep journaling/notations about your workouts along with your feelings and thoughts about your workouts (old and new). Doing this will help you be more mindful of your workouts and allow you to see in writing the types of exercises and activities you enjoy doing. Journaling can be a great tool in most cases! With this challenge, you will hopefully have some notes or a journal that will help you put together some alternate workout routines for when you need a change.
Below is a list of some cardio exercises (in no particular order). You can choose any of these if you are not sure of what to do this weekend. tell us what your choices were................
2-Swimming, Water Aerobics, Walking/Running in the pool
7-Dancing, Dance Class (Zumba seems to be a favorite with many people)
14-Train for a 5k (or 10k)
19-Fit TV ( turn on Fit TV and do whatever workout they are doing at that moment)
20-Cardio DVD’s (Netflix and your local library are great resources for trying new videos without having to purchase them)
Enjoy your challenge!
“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
