Back To The Gym

I woke my inactive butt up at 4:50 this morning and went to the gym. My hubby went with me too (even though I felt bad waking him up at 5:00) and that was nice. Felt like it was a few months ago when we went every morning...however, with my son having to be at school by 7:00 a.m., the workout has to be started an hour earlier. I remembered to start off slow since I haven't been to the gym in oh, 3 months. I only did cardio because I only have 45 min in the morning. When my husband starts his job (hopefully soon since he isn't earning anything and money is getting tight!), my son and I will be doing the gym thing in the evening when I get off work. Then I will have my normal 2 hrs to exercise. Since my son won't have football to keep him active in 2 weeks, back to the gym it is for him as well.

I find that I get bored with my workouts. I need to switch things up and do a class or two. I always here about Zumba and how much people love to do that. I used to do Body Pump class and LOVED that. I couldn't walk for 3 days after, but it was great for toning. I also used to do an ABS (Abdominal and Back Strength) class that REALLY worked that area and it was good. I'm not a big fan of kickboxing, not sure why. I love to swim and may start doing that again since I won't look too bad in my swimsuit now. My swim class that I did really helped me before my wedding...lost several inches just by swimming.

I really need to get busy on my arms. My right arm isn't too bad, but my left are is SO flabby looking. I have always had big arm so there is a lot of extra skin there and I don't want wings when I am done with my WL. Suggestions? Anyone have any great exercises to tighten up that area? I know I will have some skin issues, but I am trying to get as toned as possible to alleviate the issue.

So what is your favorite way to exercise? I need some new ideas!!
