My children exercised with in crazy ways since they were young. That was the day of Jane Fonda. They still keep in shape, walking, jogging, playing sports and pull up, etc. They do better than me, but they are in their 20's! You just need to make time for yourself, start now.

Does sound pretty good if your maintaining weight. If you want muscle the 20 minutes is okay it's best to hit the strength training all at the same time to show faster result then 5 minutes here and there.
I understand you have the little one preventing you from doing so in time. As he gets older and things change extend your Strength training.

Sounds like you know yourself pretty well and have scheduled what works best for your needs at this time. Even though you are not trying to lose weight per say, aerobic exercise is important for cardiovascular health.

Hi! I am trying to put my fitness schedule together for the New Year and need some help or suggestions. I was not sure if there is a great fitness board or team to get advice on?
I am a stay at home mom to a 20 month old child who has already given up all naps. This leave me very little time to workout. I plan on getting up early for my cardio and then throwing in 5 minutes of strength training throughout the day a couple of times for a minimum of 20 minutes a day. I am currently at my goal weight and I HATE cardio so 20 minutes a day is a lot for me. I am just worried that this is not an intense enough workout routine to reach my goals. My challenge is going to be 6 months long but I would like to see an improvement within 6-8 weeks ( I‘ll be going to the beach then). I am also going to be almost 100% clean eating as well. This new diet is going to be really hard at first so I don’t want to burn myself out with the workout too! Below is my current fitness plan and goals. Does anyone have any suggestions? Do you think this is intense enough? Any advice will be helpful! Thanks in advance!
Cardio *5x a week 20 minutes
*Legs - 20 minutes legs (sparkpeople's schedule) 2-3 days a week alternating with arms
Arms *20 minutes of arms (sparkpeople's schedule) 2-3 days a week alternating with legs *20 push ups
Abs- Everyday *sit ups 50-100x *oblique’s 20-40x
Here are my fitness goals so far: Goals- *Overall tone *Maintain weight 115-125lb *Light 6 pack (flatter & tighter midsection) *Tighten butt and thighs *Lessen cellulite *Ability to do 20 push ups (My upper body is very weak so this is going to be harder then it sounds; I‘ll increase this goal as I go along)
