Moms who exercise

When do you find the time.

I have a newborn and plan on working out once I hit the 6 week mark. But when?? I plan on getting on the treadmill and working up a good sweat so then I have to shower afterwards.

I can wait till Dh comes home but thats around 7, then we have to eat dinner, etc, etc. !

When DS was an infant and I was on maternity leave, I would walk with him every day. Once it got colder, I started walking and jogging on the treadmill in the evenings after DH got home. I also incorporated some workout DVD's on other nights.

Now that he's older, I run with him in the jogging stroller and take pilates classes at a place which provided childcare. It wasn't easy in the beginning but it is totally doable.

Ditto - but I will say I didn't get up the energy to start this until DS was around 6 months or so. Up to that point I was just getting through each day in sheer exhaustion. I now get up at 5:15 3-4 days/week to work out and it helps my energy levels tremendously.

I am finally getting the energy to get up earlier now that DS is 7 months old. I have been doing workout DVD's in the morning while he is still sleeping.

Re: Moms who exercise

Dh works mostly from home - so it's a bit easier for me. But on the days that he goes in - I am ready and dressed. when he walks in - I walk out to run. I used to be a morning person, but all those early morning rises makes me not want to voluntarily get up early to run.
