hello!

I was just wondering what you burned on pure cardio... I'm just curious because I know you are already pretty small and in good shape. I just did pure cardio and I only burned 385..I hear all of these stories about these huge 5 or 600 cal burns with pure cardio.. Am i not pushing myself hard enough or is it just that I am semi fit with not a ton of weight to lose? 

Any advice welcome! Thanks ladies!

Ciara-

That is about what I burned as well. Most of the time, people that are burning 600 calories either a) have a ton of muscle mass ( mine is 32% lean muscle mass) or b) they weigh more and will burn more because they have more to lose. 385 is a respectable burn for a 40 minute DVD, so be happy! :-)
