I don't have kids, but I can tell you what I do to squeeze every bit into my busy day that I can.
I take the stairs at work as much as possible. On my lunch break, I walk in place for 30 minutes as I read my Kindle. I walk in place for at least 15 minutes in the evening while I watch a one-hour TV show with hubby after dinner.
When the baby is napping, that's your prime time. Housework burns calories (lunges while vacuuming, up & down the stairs, squats while loading & unloading the washer, dryer & dishwasher, etc.) & I'd count every minute.
Best of luck to you!!
Blessings, Nillapepsi (Sheila) :-)

Hi all! Wasn't sure where to post this, so I'll try here. :) If you've been reading my blogs at all, you may know I'm expecting my first child sometime between now and the middle of April. (It's a waiting game now!)
One of the things, combined with all the craziness of being a new mommy, that I really want to do - is to make sure I don't loose my 1,000 fitness minutes streak. I've had it going for over a year now - heading on 2; and I'm looking for any ideas on this score.
I'm REALLY proud that with the pregnancy and everything I've managed to not miss a single month. Any ideas for how to continue this with the new baby would be REALLY appreciated! Thanks everyone!
