We splurged this summer and bought a Wii just before the boys were born. I have been boxing on it for awhile, which is a pretty good workout. For Christmas I bought myself the WiiFit and promised myself that if I got it I would use it.
I try to use it after dinner once the boys are in bed for the night during the week, so after 8pm usually. On the weekend I use it while they are playing in the exersaucer and bouncer or during their nap. They are usually content to let me do my thing for about 30 minutes.

It took me until my twins were 3 to figure out that the best time for me was to get up at 0445 and head to the gym before my husband leaves for work at 0630. It sounds insane, but honestly I need less naps now that I'm working out 5x per week. My energy is up, stress is down and I've lost 12 pounds! I have equipment here at home but I get a better workout at the gym. I can't get distracted by laundry or email at the gym :)

I'm actually facing the same problem. I have 3 1/2 year old twins and a 6 month old. My intetion was to exercise when the twins were in preschool and the baby was napping but I end up racing around during that time trying to do everything I need to do without "help".

One thing I've tried is getting on the treadmill right after my DH finishes. I mean it's already out so that's one less hassle and we can switch off watching the kids for that time.

My kids are 5, 3 & 3. I work out after I put my five year old on the bus and before the twins get up. Sometimes I do a short sparkpeople video in the evening before I put the kids to bed. Then, they usually try to do the workouts with me. It can be quite fun!

Okay so I am ready to start incorporating actual work outs into my routine, but it is hard with the twins being 5 months old and having a two year old. What do you do to work out?

When I loose:

10lbs: Get a new hair cut

15lbs: Pedicure

25lbs: Get a massage

35lbs: Get a sexy outfit

40lbs: Night out with hubby in sexy outfit

45lbs: Have a glass of wine in a fancy bar.

50lbs: Get new clothes
