    I go to the gym every day. I drop my eldest at school and then go directly from there to the gym. The other two go in the gyms creche. I found I have to do it this way otherwise I'll find an excuse not to go.

    I'm also doing Weight Watchers at the moment and finding it surprisingly easy.

    For me:

    I put DD in ergo and push DS in the pram. I do this while dropping DS to daycare and again when I pick him up late arvo.

    This is the only way I can do some sort of physical exercise. I dont diet. ( it stresses me)and I am to lazy to go to the gym.

    I have the "nike training challenge" app on my iphone. It takes you through a workout like a personal trainer would do, can do it in the living room. After DD is in bed I plug the iphone into the stereo and do a 30 minute or 45 minute (if I'm feeling extra energetic) session.

    Most of the training sessions start with a 5 minute warm up (jogging on the spot, walking lunges etc) then 20 minutes of things like 1 minute plank, 30 seconds pushups, 2 minutes alternating lunges, then 5 minutes stretching. There are videos on how to do each exercise in case you're not sure what you're meant to do. And the models doing the exercises have fantastic fit-looking bodies which always make me feel extra motivated

    There are easy, moderate and hard sessions so you can work your way up and never get bored.

    My wife and I go to the pool twice a week. We take turns swimming laps for half an hour and watching the kids. If you had another mummy friend in the same situation perhaps that would work? Although you need the right pool. Ours has a great baby pool that's ok for the 4yo too (has fun fountains etc) plus a playground right outside if watching three or four kids in water is too hard - we do it with two and its "not relaxing"

    I bought a treadmill and put it in the lounge room. I use it when the kids are watching their morning Dora, napping or go to bed of a night time. Before that I used to use the gym crèche, but I swapped to Anytime Fitness which doesn't have one.
