Working in the Workouts: What do the experts say?

Filed under: , ,

owen and mommyEach week, Debbie will share her goals, challenges, successes and tips on how to fit in fitness when caring for a rambunctious toddler.

I admit, I haven't been stellar with my exercise routine the last week or so, and another admission -- my creativity is wearing out, fast.

So this week, I turn to the experts at Baby Center (I use the term loosely) for some ideas about how to make time for exercise.

Did I gain any insight? Sadly, no, but it made me feel good about what I am doing. I've incorporated some of their ideas, which really work better for younger babies, like using a stroller or carrier for hikes and walks. I've also gotten childcare so I can walk, which they suggested, and used exercise videos (my good ol' yoga).

Although the other ideas don't work for me, you might find Baby Center's tips of using a gym with childcare or joining a stroller exercise class fits you and your baby.

Me? I'm sticking to me strength training in the mornings and my walks and yoga when I can get it.

Do you have any ways that you fit in the exercise that we all haven't thought of yet? Please, enlighten us!
