P90X who is doing it?

I am using my sisters videos only can get in 3days a week need to keep doing it and stay motivated . I like the workouts but it is hard to do with 3 kids . as a sahm you would think I would have all the time in the day to workout .. Not .. I don't get on the computer much . I know that thought well if you have enough time to be on the computer then you have enough time to work out. I have a 3 month old girl 3and5 year old boys the boys like to workout with me but sometimes they are getting in the way. I can not tell them not to workout it is healthy for them.
Anyone trying the workout or anyother workout got any clues to what I am talking about!! I kinda feel alone here even though I know I am not the only mom trying to lose weight. I wish all of you out there the best being a mom is hard I am happy to find cafemom support when I need it Thanks to you all..

  • i am doing it. It's hard to find the time though, because the workouts are an hour to an hour and a half long, but i manage. I also row too, so with a 2 month old a 2 year old i pretty much have to wait for my hubby to get home. Today is week 2 so im not to experienced with it yet, but i'll get there. i like it. And i've lost 3 lbs the first week. yay :)

  • I'm not doing P90X, but I have done two other Beachbody programs. I started with Slim in 6 and now I'm doing Turbo Jam. I've been helping a few mom's set up routines to work around the kids and their busy schedules.

    A lot of Mom's will work out in the AM before kids get up, during the kids afternoon nap time or in the PM after they go to bed .. and some work out with the kids, or when the kids are eating lunch. You just have to get that heartrate up and do about 30 minutes at a time if you can squeeze it in. While eat workout may be an hour, you can break it down if necessary.

    If the kids work out with you, then you give each one "their own workout spot" ... like maybe put a small blanket on the floor as "their" workout area ... the blanket will help the 3 & 5 yrs old w/ boundaries. Once they are used to staying in their own bubble, they will stay out of YOUR bubble and hopefully you can do the whole hr.

    Good luck!

  • I just received my video's....I am really excited!!! I want to start as soon as possible but my schedule keeps getting in the way. The only semi free time is when my daughter is at preschool but that leaves me and my two year old. Running after him is a workout in its self.
