Today is going to be a cardio day. Yesterday I did cardio and a shoulder workout. I have found my strength to be lessening with my pregnancy. Has anyone else had that problem?

I have found that it takes a lot more energy to lift what I used to and I get tired really fast. Cardio seems to be my favorite workout right now. Today I will be doing a mix:

  • 15 minute elliptical
  • 15 minute treadmill run
  • 15 minute rowing
  • 15 minute treadmill cool down

Even though I have been feeling tired, I am determined to continue my daily workouts. If you are not a cardio fan, here are some of the benefits of fitting cardio into your routine.

  • Improved muscle mass
  • Reduced Risk of Osteoporosis
  • Improved heart function
  • Improved blood cholesterol¬† and triglyceride levels
  • Increased metabolism
  • Natural mood booster

Do you need any other reasons to fit in your cardio today??
