McFatty Monday - Here We Go!

I am 6 weeks post partum and it is time to get back to normal. Posting more, going back to work, feeling better, and exercisng!

Does anyone know where I can find the time to do the 30 Day Shred with a toddler and a newborn? Anyone?! I thought maybe I would get up and do it this morning before Brooke woke up but Molly wanted to cuddle for awhile. My next option is during Brooke's nap. Even if Molly isn't napping I can put her in her bouncy seat and hopefully my sporadic movements will keep her entertained for 25 minutes. Of course, Brooke did not nap at all this weekend so what if she decides to make it a pattern? Option three would be working out tonight after Dustin is home. We only have one TV and as much and I want Dustin to watch me work out -- Oh wait, I don't! -- I will probably have him take Brooke on our nightly walk and do the work out while he is gone.

So I will weigh myself this morning so that I have a starting point, and then hopefully next week I can report some good results!

Good luck to you! For me, the first couple of weeks were the hardest... And finding time to fit the workout in is difficult - but shortly it will just become part of your daily routine.

You'll make it work! Thanks for linking up with us! I will be back to check your progress and root for you!

I just started the 30 day shred yesterday..great work out!
I don't have wee ones anymore so I can see it would be challenging to fit it in..but you can do it..remember it is only 20 mins!!

Check Craigslist for a cheap TV set for another room to work out in :)

We actually have a TV with a DVD player built in, but it is in the catastrophic basement. Maybe I should clean myself a space to work out in.

Good luck!! I remember when my daughter was pretty young - I'd put her in her swing and do the 30DS. She just kinda looked at me like, "WTF are you doing mom?" I guess I look awkward while working out. :) I know it's got to be hard w/ 2 kids to fit in a workout ... but you can do it!!

You go girl! 6 weeks pp, I was definitely NOT worrying about the weight.

Keep us posted!

It has been a little bit of a mixture for me. When I was on maternity leave the best time was during my toddler's nap. I tried doing it with him up a few times and it didn't work so well. He was cute and wanted to join in but then I'd be tripping all over him. Now, it's more of getting my husband to entertain my son while I fit it in during the evenings after work. Luckily my baby is super easy and just goes with the flow of whatever I'm doing. Good luck, hope you figure out a time that works well for you.
