  • I think that you have to make it a priority in your life, if you just let it sit on the back burner and say "I'll do it tomorrow" you'll never do it. I started going back to the gym (I'm a gym rat lol) when my son was around 10m old, I basically decided I wouldn't go back until he started walking...so if he hadn't walked until 15 months that's when I would've went back. Prior to that I worked out at home during his naps. I'll have a newborn in September and have the same rule...when she can walk is when I'll have no problem going back to the gym (I should mention that most gyms have free childcare for members). But before that I'll just be working out each day during naps. The fact is that even five minutes of exercise here and there makes a difference.

  • I would love to get strated on an excersise program. I just have got myself in a routine. I have a 2 yr old who takes uo 90% of my time a 4 yr old. So it is very hard to squeeze everything in!!

  • Thankfully my daughter is still young enough that I can throw her in the stroller and go for a walk. Sadly I work 2 jobs and don't have much time to exercise around my jobs and my family. We try to make it a family affair when we do work out tho. We go for walks or we go to the park with my stepsons and we make sure to be really active.

  • What i am finding is the best is that I get up earlier than everyone else and workout. That is time for myself and gets me ready for the day.
