As a mom of two, I can say for a fact that a good ab workout CAN in fact help to sinch the mid section somewhat, although I agree that mostly it's good diet and exercise to burn calories that will make the difference. Having a kid under your ab muscles stretches them out. It can even separate them. I can't tell you exactly what to do, but any good mix of ab exercises will help. i'm sure if you google post partum ab workout you'll get a good idea. There are also endless numbers of body weight workouts out there that you can do at home. Look up Zuzkalight on youtube or bodyrock.tv as far as I know there's a lot for free there, also of course the exercise videos by coach nicole.
The other thing i would advise is not to obsess too much about one measurement, much like obsessing about the scale, it can actually hold you back by discouraging if you don't see the results you want in a short time.
Keep at it. You are doing great if you actually do it after your kids to go to bed. Kudos to you. I couldn't do it, I need the gym.
Never giving up! I CAN do this. I WILL do this. I AM doing this!
