I am one that prefers to workout by myself....so doing videos at home suits me. No need to go anywhere, find child care, or dress for a gym. I add variety by changing up my videos regularly (though I definitely have my favorites). I also try new videos for free from the library.
As to motivation, I would definitely find what works for you. Maybe you and hubby can plan a few workouts per week together. Knowing that those are coming up helps get through workouts that you may need to do alone.
What about a workout partner, walking buddy, or youngster to help you out? I would rather walk with my 11-year-old son or teenage daughter or have them ride their bike alongside me We rarely do it, but it is a nice diversion, especially in the nice weather.
Finally, on days when I have a hard time getting started, I promise myself I will do 'just 10 minutes' of my workout. If I feel like continuing, I will. If I can't continue, I come back later and do another 10 minutes. And so on, until I'm done. Usually, once I start, I don't want to stop!
Good luck to you!
