Exercise for busy moms

So, as everyone has probably found out from personal experience, you won't lose weight/get toned if you just watch what you eat. With each post-partum (ouch), it has been harder for me to "get back to normal" and each time I have started earlier. Not only do I try to watch what I eat, but I use Blogilates exercise videos or printouts and literally just five to ten minutes is ENOUGH. (Look up "Blogilates" on Youtube... they are all free, five minutes, no materials required)

I first found Blogilates printouts after Adelaide was born. After Rosie was born, I started doing the "100 challenge" videos, one a day. I really like putting checkmarks on things and trying to complete something. It's motivating. But seriously, a video a day. 5-10 minutes. And usually not even everyday. 

Right now I am aiming for 5-10 minutes Monday-Friday and I am using these printouts above. I am on day 5 and already feel so much progress. I have decided to do it right when my daughter gets home from school. I just pull out an exercise mat and do it in the living room, in front of the kids. Sometimes they try to climb on me and I shake off two or three. ;) I think it's a good example for them to see me doing things that are important for me, so I've decided to do it at the prime time of the day. 

I am sharing because this is so important for me and getting exercise in your life is life-changing, so maybe it might prove useful for someone out in internet-world. What do you think?
