Cardio. It Does a Body Good.

I believe in cardio. It’s been getting a bad rap as of late. Some fit pros say strength training reigns supreme. They poopoo cardio saying too much of it can atrophy our muscles. This logic rarely applies. Do you know what “too much cardio” is? It’s like running for over an hour, many days in a row. Most of us will never be tempted. Some fit pros say cardio makes us crave more sugar. This logic only applies if the cardio is in the not-jogging-but-sprinting-zone, when the intensity level is very high. This also rarely applies. 

If you ask me, we need MORE cardio.Cardio is medicine. Cardio circulates. It moves the lymph. It detoxifies. It strengthens the heart and lungs. It builds coordination. It releases endorphins. It burns calories. It lifts our mood. It raises our vibration. 

It was cold and dreary today, so did not take my dogs out for our usual morning (cardio) walk. All day I was feeling low energy and uninspired. Then, I rehearsed a cardio workout in my bathroom mirror. Now I feel like a million bucks! It’s almost 7pm, but better late than never, right?

Recalling the famous milk advertisement…”Milk. It does a body good.” I’d like to steal that tagline: Cardio. It does a body good. 😊
