  • work out with your little girls......sit on the floor and play with them...lift them, bycicle your feet with them...etc....look on youtube for mommy kids excercises....also walk with them.....AND.....walk by yourself by walking out the door and telling your husband that they are his children too, and he WILL watch them...

  • I got one of those yoga balls and there are a lot of exercises you can do on them...I think it only cost me about $15. There are tons of instructions and youtube videos out there for exercises on those. Also, I think mine even came with a booklet of workouts. It is definitely the only piece of workout equipment I have ever used on a regular basis, and for the price, I think its worth the risk!

  • do you have a video game system in the house? every system has a workout game. in fact, i think all systems have a dance game. i've tried dance games for xbox & wii. both were really good workouts(whether or not you can dance). lol

  • I really loved doing Tae-Bo! That worked awesome for me. You could work out at night. When I was younger I worked out at night (which I might go back to doing if I can not get off of my butt during the day.) Just as long as you work out you should be fine no matter the time.

  • Mama, it's really hard to work out when your kids are little. It does get easier as they get older. But the fact that your babys father won't watch them is an issue! He needs to step up, be a dad, and support you!

  • Not sure how old your girls are but you can do DVDs while they nap if they still do, if they are old enough that they don't nap then they can join you. My 4 year old loves to exercise with me, she doesn't do exactly what I am but she tries and she knows to stay out of my way.

  • Definitely get a good DVD. I love Jillian Michaels's DVDs, especially 30 Day Shred. Get some hand weights, resistance bands, and an exercise ball, and you'll have a full gym! If you can afford to invest in a double jogging stroller, they're awesome for walks and if you pick up the pace and jog, they're good for that too. You can also put on some music and dance with them at home, which they'll love! My son does the 30 Day Shred with me (as far as his 2 year old attention span can handle, anyway), and it's fun for both of us.
