I have had the same problem. It's gotten better in the past couple of weeks. I'm starting to find activities that my son enjoys too. So, now we take the really, really long way to the park. He loves the nice walk and the park at the end of the trip is priceless. He also likes swimming and playing tag. That really helped me. He now tells me that we need to walk, so even if I'm tired, he pushes me.

If you like the thought of running/walking, maybe you can try a C25k plan or a Spark 5k training plan. And then sign up for a 5k for about when you'd be done training. Usually, you can find a local event that isn't too expensive and discounts for early registration. My town offers a 5k in mid July. The cost is $18 if you sign up before June 26.

When it comes to regular exercise, it's important to find activities you enjoy. Then you're much more likely to stick with it. Do you like walking or jogging? If not, find something else to do like biking, swimming, etc. Don't be afraid to experiment with activities until you find things you like. Here are a few articles you might also find helpful:
