I'd really like to do this but I'm REALLY just starting out - I have very weak core muscles and have a general feeling of lethargy - its been ages - does anyone have good ideas of where to start *those who have already accumulates 500 mins in less than a week are incredible! But, since they are so out of my league, I'm looking for other beginners. Thanks!

Start with 10 minutes a day and add from there! It is recommended that people get their heart rate up 30 minutes per day so that would be a good goal to work towards! :)

Thanks for your response. Any suggested activities while playing with a 2yo or pushing a double stroller? Or should I try to do something while they nap? If really like to be more energized (without more caffeine, ESP during the second half of the day). Thanks!!!

Take walks with them!! I did that daily after having #3! They loved being outside and it's a great way to get moving!!

You could also try a workout DVD before they wake up. I always feel better all day when I workout in the morning. Jillian micheals has a DVD... 30 day shred that has different levels. It's a good workout!!!

You could turn on some music and dance silly with the kids. Mine love that!!! Anything to get moving helps!!!

Okay I'll update my original reply with what I can remember so far for the month. This should be fun.

I'll say 1250 just to see where I'm at. We can go back to 4/1 for counting? If so I'll have to look at the calendar, and come back to post from then.

 Yup! I did! :)
