TBL Cardio Max - Week 1 Day 1.

I did my first workout this evening with The Biggest Loser: Cardio Max DVD and it was great! It was actually more difficult than I thought it would be. I'm starting out at Level 1, which is a 5 minute warm-up, 20 minute workout and a 5 minute cool down. The workout itself is non stop moving with legs, arms and abs being worked all at the same time.
Here is how the video works with increased intensity.
Week 1 - 2 : Level 1 = 30 minute workout
Weeks 3 - 4 : Level 1+Level 2 = 40 minute workout
Weeks 5 - 6 : Level 1+Level 2+Level 3 = 50 minute workout
I took "Before" pictures today but I'm not brave enough to put them up here yet... maybe I will if I get good results; we'll see! I have a book I'm going to keep as I go through this 6 week video to track my daily weight and weekly measurements (which will hopefully be decreasing!).
Here are my measurements and starting weight.
Bust: 39.5 in
Waist: 32.5 in
Hips: 39 in
Arms - 12.5 in
Thighs - 23.5 in
Calves - 15 in
Weight: 152.3
I will be doing this video everyday; ending my six weeks on June 16, 2013. I am going to do a weekly post on Mondays with my measurements and weight difference. Along with this video I am watching (very carefully but in a healthy way) what I am eating to help push along my weight loss and make me more healthy overall. I don't really know what kind of results to expect from this program but I am hopeful that this is just the beginning to a long fitness/health journey for me.


  1. Good for you Beth! I am excited to read about your progress! What kind of cardio does the DVD have you doing?

    1. Thank you Sarah! I'm really excited and motivated to get in shape! Level 1 is all aerobics (including a lot of arms and full body movements-with 5lb dumbbells). I've read that Level 2 is high-intensity sports/athletic drills and level 3 is non-stop kickboxing. I'm looking forward to the kickboxing! :)

  2. I am getting tired just reading about this, very impressed!

    1. Haha! Thanks Hilary! I think the last two weeks are going to be tough!
