Default My exercise routine

Hi everyone,

So for about a week and a half now I've been doing the elliptical for 60 min and some weights afterwards. I'm usually pretty beat at the end of the work out which lasts abt 1.5 hours. If I do this everyday I'm assuming I will start losing less calories because I will get used to the elliptical.

Does anyone have any recommendation on exercises I can do to switch it up? I live upstairs in an apt building so I feel like I can't do those Insanity workout tapes when i get home (which is always at night) and I have incredibly weak knees so running always leaves me feeling dead tired and in pain after 3 minutes.

Any suggestions? I'm pretty bad at this workout thing. Also, this is probably a stupid question, but I know you can't spot reduce, but if I did the bike only instead of the elliptical would my arms be flabby in comparison to my legs? This is why I usually stick to the elliptical because I'm using both my arms and legs and feel like I'm getting a full body workout. But should I try different machines? I can't afford a gym at the moment so I'm using what my apartment complex offers which is a treadmill, bike, elliptical, and weight machines.

Thank you!
