You can do ab work with dumbells standing up and bending from the waist (for the sides), twisting your shoulders.

Can you do situps on a ball?

Standing and lifting your knees or doing kicks uses abs.

Zumba or belly dancing type movements

Glad you're here!

He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.

Congrats on your new babe!
I'm just starting out my spark journey (for the second time...tried 4 years ago and didn't manage to stick with it)
I know how much I don't want to give up nap time to wrok out. Could your better half maybe take over baby care when he/she arrives home from work so you can do a video?
No idea on ab work. I'm still struggling to get into the 10 minute walk groove. Speaking of which...it's cold here too (Ontario, Canada) and I still try to get out for a 10 minute walk every day. It's only 10 minutes so you can just bundle up and walk around your block.
Or try taking a walk when things get crazy and you just want a break from everything. I know when I had a newborn I had a lot of moments like that, where a ten minute break was exactly what I needed.

Slow and steady wins the race.

I had been a member on sp about 2years ago and I'm back since having my first natural child ( I have a wonderful stepdaughter). I had my beautiful baby girl in August and put on A LOT of weight.....basically I ate everything and now......well I'm struggling to take it off so I came back for some support and accountibility.

I'm trying to get back into working out, but I must do this at home during nap time....unless I find a way to incorporate my lo into it. I have some videos I used before and a stationary bike but I live in the midwest so anything outside right now is out of the question since it's too cold.

Also, I broke my tail bone during delivery and lying on the floor is still proving challenging so if anyone has any suggestions about ab work I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks and I'm glad to be on board.
