My twins are 5 now and big sister's almost 9 and I can say that it (i.e., everything, esp. sleep) gets easier. But finding time to exercise is still a challenge, as I work FT outside the home and have a 1 hr commute each way.
I'm fortunate to be able to walk or do other excercise in the morning while my husband gives the kids breakfast. Historically, I haven't been a big morning person but recently, I've been grooving on getting up early to walk (before the heat kicks in) or do the elliptical, which we have at home. (And which I got on for the first time since the twins were born recently - yay for me!) I also wear a pedometer and try to weave extra walking and stairs into my day, e.g., getting on the train a stop past home and/or getting off a stop before the office, or combining w/errands at lunchtime.
I'm just now incorporating strength training into my routine and am finding lots of great resources for at-home workouts. In addition to the demos and videos on Spark, the RealAge site has some good ones, including these two: www.realage.com/WorkOutCenter/Articles.asp
Good luck and keep us posted!
