  • Walking is one of the most beneficial exercises as long as you get your heart rate up enough. Invest in a jogging stroller (however, I am not sure how old a baby has to be to ride in one...there may be a weight requirement). The only thing that has worked for me to lose all of my baby weight is a combination of exercise and food journal. I use a free website called livestrong.com that tracks your daily caloric intake and output. It is a great program that has helped me shed 15lbs now. It is so easy...no gimmicks just tracking your food and staying within your allotted calories. If you are looking at videos to try I know The Firm has some quick weight workouts (30 minutes) that you may want to begin with. I highly recommend Cathe Friedrich videos, but tend to be more for the advanced exerciser who has about an hour to spare. Good luck!

  • Try Turbo Jam, just do as much as you can when you can, it will at least help tighten things up!
