As a SAHM of three boys for the past 10 years (well, it started out with one, LOL), finding the time to exercise, especially when they were babies, was very difficult. In fact, I didn't start exercising until my oldest was 1 1/2 because he was a horrible sleeper and I was tired alot! I lost 35 pounds before getting pregnant with #2 and that summer I got a bike seat for my bike. Boy did adding that 35 lb back on because of the baby did really increase my workout! When #2 was just over a year old, we got a bike trailer, but then I got pg. with #3 and wasnt able to bike with it, but did use it for a jogging stroller. That sure did come in handy when we wanted to bike as a family.
Now that my babies are 5, 7, and almost 10, it is fun to be able to go out and play with them, but it is also nice not to have to wait until nap times to exercise.
