So I’m not a working mom. I am a stay at home mom. And while I do like the running stroller occasionally, it definitely is more work, and sometiems a pain because my son doesn’t like it. So it can be a hit or miss.

As for when to work out, I know alot of people who work out during their lunch hour, perhaps that will be a possibility when you have children?

Well when I was working a full time job, I worked out during lunch. My gym was 5 minutes from there so I would just work out on lunch a couple times a week. I would go back to work with a wet head, but who cares.

This is a good question, one I’ve been wondering about too.  I’m 39 wks pregnant now and I can’t really see myself having the energy to work out after picking up the baby from day care.  I also don’t know what my husbands schedule will be by then.  I think the lunch hour is a common time to work out.  I might try that when I have the baby.  It sounds like when you have a baby you might have to sacrifice your work out routine and create a new one.  Maybe there is another gym/yoga class you can take closer to home?

This doesn’t always work for brand new moms, but a lot of moms with older infants/toddlers work out during their nap times.  That could work for you on the weekends.

I would also strike a deal with hubby that he watches the baby for a half hour or so to get in a quick workout.  Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred is awesome and is about 30 min with a warm up and cool down included.
