  • yes, because I refuse to become a lazy lump at such a young age. My DH can watch the boys for the hour or 2 I'm gone and it gets me outta the house.

  • i cant even find time to shower half the time. I feel like I have to beg borrow and steal for a shower or sleep, so needless to say I have a hard time finding time to excercise.

  • I try to do pilates with my LO running around me or go for a walk with my LO, but leaving the house and going to a gym...? Never! I don't have the time for that, muchless money.

  • If you really want to get fit, you will find a way that works for you, even if it requires you to get up before anyone else to get it done.

  • I get up at 445 am and do my workout before work and before I get my son up. I do it to get it out of the way for the day and so I dont talk my self out of it. I feels so good being able to do it then.

  • When I worked full time with kids, I took the kids to daycare a little earlier a few mornings a week to get a workout in.

  • I used to hit the gym at 0500 when my kids were little. Now, I work very little and the kids are away in college and beyond, so it's easy to work into my daily routine.

  • Not lately. I used to though. I would just get up 30 minutes earlier in the mornings and do a workout with my Wii.
