As others have said start with walks or put another way, start slow. Not saying this is gospel or anything but you need to ramp up you exercise and the change in your eating habits. trying to go too far too fast will result in frustration and make it difficult to stick with it. So I'd say for right now, take some walks. After the little one is in bed or you can hand the little one off to Dad take some time to yourself to get in a more vigorous work out (when you are ready!).

Don't stress the coordination issue. I'm willing to bet that the first time any one of us on this board started exercising to videos there were several movements we were terrible at. Thing is that only lasts for the first few times through it. You will get more coordinated and figure it out. It simply takes time. I've mentioned before that I started with the original P90 and my balance issues were such that I had issues with the side kicks and figuring out how to get the body to move properly on punches. In a few short months thanks to better fitness and better coordination I can do most of the plyo jumps in the various p90 series. Had I tried them even 6 weeks ago I'm sure I would have ended up on my face.

(I checked the fitness tracker and "Playing with Kids" apparently burns 10 cal/minute. Now I'm thinking 'is it creepy to ask people if I can borrow their kids for a half hour of exercise'? Because although that sounds TERRIBLE ... tag sounds a lot more fun than many of my usual workouts!)

Walks are a good start - I do know that there's various paces of 'dance' in the fitness tracker, too, so maybe put on some tunes you like and dance about with your kid? It may be harder to track, but you could also play more active games - tag comes to mind - to up your activity level lightly and to tire the little one out?

I agree with 'Chelle..a stroller may do wonders..Maybe doing some core work and or fat burning that your little one can do with you: Maybe if you both treat it like a game...let us know!

HI!
I am having a small issue with exercise. I have no rhythm and cardio exercises are difficult for me to do unless I have 100% concentration and that is hard with a 2 year old "exercising" with me. Does anyone have any suggestions on other exercises? Thank you!!!!!!!
