You know you need to exercise; right? The problem - baby care, house care, and other issues like work and relationships make it tough to find the time. Some problems and solutions:  You don't have the time (or money) for a gym membership: You don't really need one. You can walk, jog, or bike outside, in the fresh air. If your partner can hang out with your baby for an hour, outside workout time is time for you. If you need to take junior along a good front pack, jogging baby stroller, or baby bike seat (for older babes) allows you to workout with your baby in tow. You're too tired: Working out when you're already exhausted sounds like a terrible plan, but in actuality, regular exercise will energize your body and life. When you first start a regular exercise program, you may feel more tired, but give it a few weeks, and you'll start feeling a rise in your overall energy level. You can't commit: To stay at optimum health, you should exercise for at least a hour six days a week. That seems like a lot when finding time for a shower is hard. The good news is that studies show it doesn't matter when you get that hour a day in, so long as you do. For example, you can go for a brisk 15 minute walk in the morning, ride your stationary bike for 20 minutes in the afternoon, do some squats in the kitchen as you cook dinner, and then go for a 15 minute after dinner walk. You can break exercise up and reap the same health benefits. Next up - the exercises new mamas need to stay healthy.
