You can do the strength training before they get up in the morning. You can do the cardio WITH them - go for walks, ride bikes, etc. If they're young enough, don't forget that many gyms have a kids' area where they can stay while you work out.

Depending on their ages they might be ok being left alone for 30-45 minutes a day. Otherwise, it sounds like you'll be pretty active going places with your kids, so don't forget that makes a difference, too.
I do it the same way I do it during the school year. I either do it before they get up or after they go to bedor *gasp* I make them fend for themselves for 45 minutes or so while I do it.

Now that the summer is here, the kids are out of school for the break. That being said, I will be extremely busy. As a stay at home mom of four, I will have some mornings to sleep in somewhat, but I also will need to keep kids busy during the summer. Camps, zoos, parks, pool, friends and cousins will be much appreciated during the summer by both me and the kids! I will need to find a plan of my cardio workout due to the schedule change. Maybe early mornings? Like 5ish or 6ish? Any ideas of how you do it in the summer?
