Denise have a great visit with your sister.
Music mom, welcome.
I do a fair amount of cardio every week. did a 6-7 hour hike yesterday. I do weight workouts too. a lot of people have more luck with weights than they do with straight cardio. I think a mixture is best. also do 2 yoga classes a week. I try for a balance of cardio, weights, flexibility.
weight workouts build muscle and firm up jiggly bits in the process. women especially are not happy with their arms and weight work can improve that area nicely. it adds variety to your workouts and makes you stronger, a lot stronger if you stick with it..
