I have been with LBC for 8 weeks and so far I LOVE IT-- the support, the meal plan, the flexibility, the variety, the workouts, the why's and clarity to all my questions-- becoming a LBC Client is the best decision I've ever made. Now before LBC I was a runner. Not a natural runner, but rather started running in 2009 for the first time and shortly after started running half-marathons and marathons. I lifted too, but I'll be the first to admit I was a cardio junkie! I loved it! Yep that's right, I loved cardio! I loved dripping sweat, feeling my heart race, and the feeling I felt after convincing myself I was "skinnier" after each 45 minute cardio session (running or stairs). Now my plan has me doing no cardio. Logically, I understand the reasoning behind it. I've read all the related articles and posts on days when I need to remind myself that my body DOES NOT NEED cardio to reach my goals. I know the program works and I believe in it. I have mostly good days but a few bad days sneak in when I just miss it and I so badly want to go for a run or sweat it out on the stairs. I haven't deviated once and broken down and done cardio, though there have been days (like today) where that's all I want to do! And I'm pretty sure this vent-session is probably a result of my weekend in Vegas where I ate off plan for a few days so now I'm feeling a little blah. I've read a lot of posts from clients who hate cardio and don't miss it at all...But does anyone out there miss cardio like me? And if so, now that you aren't doing cardio the way you use to back in your cardio-bunny days do you feel better about your body? The same? Worse? What changes have you noticed? It's only been 8 weeks for me without cardio (I ran my last half-marathon like 10 weeks ago or so) so I would love to hear from someone who once loved and depended on cardio too but now no longer uses cardio to reach their goals. Thanks guys!
