Moms Taking Time to Exercise

Do You Find Time to Exercise?

Shower? Not today. Moms sometimes have a hard time crossing everything off their to-do lists, and one of the first things that gets dropped is exercise. Some svelte ladies claim that running around after their children provides them all the cardio they need, while others carve out a chunk of the day dedicated to the sneakers and an elevated heart rate. Whether it's pilates, jogging, weight training, or yoga, a lil time dedicated to a healthy body can also keep a mommy sane and happy.

Do you find the time to exercise regularly?

I know I could find time if I tried but sometimes I just want to sleep. I work fulltime and have a 12 year old and I am forever running him from one place to another.

I go to the gym on my lunch hour four times a week and I go on bike rides with my kids.

I exercise by running, walking, jogging with my son. He's at the age when he just is so curious when I want to go for a walk/a run, he just has to come along with his bike or run after me. He has abundance of energy and can outrun, outbike, outjog me every time LOL. It can go for hours too, so that's my only exercise. I've managed to lose all my baby weight (yes, it took time), and definitely maintain it thanks to my son LOL (plus eating better).

I try to -- but it's not always easy. My daughter keeps me pretty busy, plus work, so sometimes once she's in bed, all I want to do is tidy up the house and relax. I have a Wii Fit which makes it easier and more accessible to exercise when I want, but I'd like to find the time to have a weekly yoga class, or go for a walk/run at night. Luckily I am fairly thin now, but I really need to tone up!
