Anything to Note =
I got home and still had my cardio to do. I was about to put something on the Wii when I remembered I once had a dvd workout somewhere on my dvd shelf. It was a Denise Austin dvd workout, a personal training dvd. I put it on and it was hilarious! It felt like it was from the 1980’s but looked at the back of the dvd and it said only 2004! My favourite quote in the intro was…
“Thanks to dvd technology you can now work out in your own home”
Thanks to dvd technology??!! In 2004??!!! I feel like we went back in time – I also felt underdressed…should have had on my leg warmers and headband….which later inspired my video upload of the day 🙂
I chose “moderate intensity” instead of low or high, thinking that I didn’t want to push it too hard, especially as I had just eaten, but clearly I was mistaken – I barely felt any sweat or increase in my heartbeat. It was not intense enough! I also had issues though – her workout required a lot of walking side to side, which was not possible in my living room, so had to modify and perhaps that meant I was not as committed? I am not sure that was entirely to blame though. It just wasn’t enough. I will need to try the “high intensity” program to see!
I also kept laughing at her constant smiling and cheesy lines of encouragement and commentating with her eye-popping! It’s too hard to…just watch this! I could not find the exact cardio workout online I did but here is a little taste…
