What do you women do for exercise? do any of you live close enough to get together?

I work out better on my own--if I'm with a friend, I end up chatting and not working out to my full potential. I do take a Zumba class twice a week which is with other people--I need my friends for that one because I feel ridiculous doing it, and I can't do it on my own at home because I just give up in the middle, but it's too embarrassing to walk out of a class so I have to keep going.

In addition to the zumba, which is only twice a week, I do the following 5 days a week:

Walk/run for one hour (usually about 6 miles)

60 lunges with 5lb weights (3 sets of 20)

60 curls with 10 lb weights (3 sets of 20)

30 triceps curls with 5 lb weights (3 sets of 10) I may have the name of these wrong--lift the weight from shoulder up then lower to shoulder.

30 butterfly lifts with 5 lb weights (3 sets of 10)

30 push ups (3 sets of 10)

30 sit ups or curls--I alternate daily

40 squats

40 pelvis lifts

On weekends, since I don't work out, I try to plan physical activities for my family--we hike, golf, play tennis, mountain bike, swim, rock climb (we have an indoor place for the winter), take nature walks, etc.

I go to my local Y and do kick boxing once a week as well as a parent child swim lesson. I love that they have child care. There is no way I'd be able to go out and exercise with out it. We live on the second floor of a four-plex so I can't do most at home exercises, not to mention my daughter doesn't nap much anymore.

I live in Peoria, AZ and workout daily with a Mom's group called Stroller Strides, it's a fitness group for Mom's and they are located all over the U.S and out of the country. I love it because I can bring my son with me and get an awesome workout and then we have a play date right after which makes it fun for the kiddos and you get to meet other Moms. I have made life long friends and lost over 70 lbs. in the process. I suggest checking it out it's a lot of fun.

I've been looking for an excercise partner for a while I'll even try mommy and me exercise classes but in the mean time I have been using "Fit in Six" on my play station 3, I started just to try it and now I'm addicted I do it daily and plan to get similar work out games!!
