Do you have time to

work out?? I wish I did. I have two young kids and my husband works alot. I can't wait to be able to hit the gym & hang for a while & not worry about rushing home! after two babies even though the weight gain came off my body is not the same that's for sure I feel like I still have the weight & flabbier.....I have tried to crank the music & do aerobic activity but its too hard with the kids around....how about you?

  • It's not so much the time, it's having the energy. I work full time then come home to a 4 year old and 8 month old. By the time we get home, get dinner going, eat, get the kitchen cleaned up, and get the kids in bed, I'm exhausted. We spend our weekends running errands and working around the house so there's really no time there. My DH & I have been talking about trying to get dinner on the table earlier and then going for a walk afterward with the kids. Now that it is supposed to start cooling down, it will be nice, and I know our kids will enjoy the "excercise." lol

  • Pffffffft.
    No. But I was sedentary before, as well. I tried to do some at-home videos, just got up earlier than the kids, but I felt too silly flapping around LOL

  • Yes. My husband and I make it a point to go the gym or go play sports every day for at least 2 hours. It makes me feel like I accomplish something for myself every day

  • I work out everyday. I make time to exercise, if I don't, I feel gross. Even finding 20- 30 mins a day to exercise is better than nothing.

  • I work out at home for the same reason. If I had to get to a gym, it would never happen. I have a stationary bike, a bunch of DVDs, and several workout games for the Wii. And I schedule an hour every day, it's the one thing I do for me. Yeah I get interrupted but for the most part the kids have learned that this is MOMMY TIME!
