Honestly, I haven't done this one in a long while. It totally kicked my butt. I drank two tall glasses of water and was sweating like a pig! I can tell I would have done better if I slept better last night and if I ate more high energy food to prepare myself. However, I feel so much better doing it all the way through without quitting early. I got a second wind around the 5th cycle (there are 8 total) so that really helped me finish without feeling overly exhausted. My husband did it with me too and oh my he's whiney! He's a hardcore rock climber, mountain biker and hiker but when it comes to Cathe, his wuss gland gets all swollen and he calls her names during the workouts. Which is funny. But trust me, I have days where I also yell at the TV from the pain. But it's sooo worth it. :-)
Anyone else workout today or do anything active? Walking, dancing, cleaning house and yes, sex is exercise too! Anything that gets your heart rate up and burns calories is good for you and it all counts for something IMO.
