I always find the best time to workout is after the kids go to bed for the night. i tried getting up extra early but they would wind up getting up early too lol. you'll find the time :)

What is a 77.5 month old?  By that age, talk in years.

Oh!  You mean a 3-year-old.

Before mine wake up I go to the gym I'm there from 5am till 6ish. My husband leaves for work at 630..my son usually wakes at 4 for a feed then sleeps till 7 or 8. So I have just enough time to shower then start the day. My son is 5 mos and I have a 3 yr old and a 4 yr old also..u can do it..k
I'm way too busy during the day so early morning is the best.

LOL I stopped reading after that because I was trying to figure out how old the child was. Wow.

Do it when he's awake.  Put him in the stroller and go for a brisk walk, or better yet, in the carrier.  That's how I did it from infancy.  I started doing DVDs at home, even after he was mobile, while he was awake.  When he was 18 months old, he'd do short bits of it with me.  He would interfere, and it would get frustrating, but he eventually learned how far away he needed to stay.  At this point, it works best to get up early, for me.

You can also break it up.  It doesn't have to be 90 minutes, and it doesn't even have to be consecutive.  You can do a Jillian Michaels DVD in 20 minutes.  That can be a great start!

I'm guessing she meant to put 7.5 months

That would actually make her a 6 and a half year old... Not that the age really matters to the scenario.

You can always encorporate exercise into your daily routine. Dance parties, walking the park, crawling, lunges while cleaning up lunch, etc. and just fit things in when you get a free moment. Exercise doesn't always have to be a long routine in one chunk!

Maybe look up the Stroller Strides group. :)
