    A good week is 6x60 minute sessions at the gym, combination of cardio and weights.

    An average week is 5 x 60 mins.

    Somehow I still manage to put on weight

    Default Exercise... How much??

    Those that manage to do it regularly, how do you fit it in? What do you do with your kids?

    I'm interested because I'm sick of using my DS as an excuse to not be exercising more!

    Default Re: Exercise... How much??

    Each week I do-
    1hr bootcamp session
    1hr pump class
    10-15km running

    Wow Northerly, I'd love to clock up km's like yours!

    ETA- with the above exercise and daily calorie intake 1250-1450, I'm maintaining a BMI of 21

    I probably do about 5 to 12 hours per week. I'm a single mummy but am currently living with my mum. I book the kids into gym crèche but also head there sometimes after the kids are in bed if my mum is at home. I also play touch footy.

    I rotate between weights, cardio and classes like Bokwa to keep it interesting.

    If im exercising out of the house I do it after 6.30 or 7 when husband is home and they're just reading books or whatever in bed. Otherwise i'll use the gym equipment in the house. Having everything at home makes it very convenient for me. Theres no way I'd bother if I had to drag my **** to the gym.

    I'll also exercise when he's at preschool. Mind you im a stay at home mum so I dont have to fit any of this around work.

    or just put them in a pram with some toys and snacks.

    Really you don't need a gym.

    Like I said above, one of my sessions is a mum and bub class, so both boys come with me. All the babies are on a big blanket or in prams etc.

    The other session is when DH is usually home so he has them for the hour.

    I would otherwise still be using them as an excuse.

    I used to use the elliptical or bike for 30-60 mins a day plus at least 45 minutes walking
    The last few weeks none have felt too sick
    Hoping to get back into soon

    I do 2x1 hour PT sessions each week (assuming I can get there) and then run 10 to 15 km every weekend. DH has the kids. I used to run 20 to 25 km every weekend (prior to kids) and would love to get back to that but TBH these days I'm happy spending that time with the kids and DH (particularly now I'm back working as well).

    We also do lots of incidental exercise here.
