I'm trying for 2 hrs cardio a day because apparently any less and my body just stops losing weight (medical issues may affect this perhaps?) Typically I do 2 workout classes but if I can only get 1 in or (heaven forbid lol) none in then I hit the gym on the bike. Classes I'm currently in: Bollywood Bellydance, Step Aerobics, Yoga, Aqua Fitness, PiYo, and Karate but I'm thinking about adding Zumba if the instructor is good so that I have less time on the bike. I really like the Fit, Firm and Fired Up DVD when my classes don't incorporate strength training (most of the dance-y ones really don't for instance) and try to fit at least 1 of those videos (10 minutes) in if I need to. Weekends are my down fall :( I try to spend as much time with the hubs as possible and that often means that I forgo my gym time or let myself laze around when during the week I'm up and going going gone all day most days with the gym, my business and cleaning/cooking at the house. Working on that issue.

I am both a gym and at home workout person; I do currently have a trainer so I go train with him two mornings a week; I am currently in my last package at Fitness Together then I will be off for the Summer and in the pool more and able to post on my swimming teams that I am on on this site; it is hard for me to post on every team board but I am gradually getting there. I like working out at home as sometimes when I go into the gym it is crowded and the mirror is being hogged and then again that always happens our gym at our complex is small; and some of the people that come in there are weird so I stay away from them and working out at home gives me the chance to use my equipment; I wish I had an exercise bike or a treadmill at my condo but I don't have room for one.

Our post has a new class at the gym called "Flaunt!". I finally got the courage to go last night to try it out and OMG! I had a blast! It was a little weird at frist being a room full of women and only allowed to moan vs grunt when you're in pain but it was a blast. I thought I did okay and it was easy yesterday but today I'm feeling the burn. It's like yoga + cardio + exotic dance all put together. Does anyone have that at their post?

I prefer a gym but since I work nights affording daycare during the days is just not possible for me so I workout at home during naptime. I try to do an hour to 90 minutes since the little ones don't sleep for very long anymore. I did just pick up a set of dumbbells to help increase my workout.
When I do get to run to the gym, lately I've been finding myself in Zumba classes then on the actual equipment.
