Today, I decided to incorporate cardio and strength training back into my  exclusive yoga routine.  So I joined a boxfit class scheduled at our office gym.  The workout touted to lose around 1,000 calories per session.  Incredible.  I kept an open mind.

After just the first two rounds, I felt like I lost 5 pounds.  Really, I literally felt my wrist shrink and my wristwatch loosened.Resolution2

The class I attended combined the regular circuit training routine plus 4 minutes of continuous cardiovascular exercises done in rapid succession.  The circuit training phase consisted of mountain climbers, skipping rope, shuffling , planking and strength training working on the arms, butt and core.  The continuos cardio exercises include jumping jacks, squats, side jumping jacks, lunge, and push ups.  

A session of this once a week should be enough for me.  Thankfully, I survived the grueling workout.
