    Could you maybe incorporate the lunch hour and parking your car further away? Park 15 minutes away from your work in the morning and then walk to pick it up at lunchtime? Still getting 30 minutes and not taking your whole lunch so you dont have to take work home?

    I have a skipping rope that i use when i cant get away from the house. It is quite a workout and burns calories fast!

    I've got some great boot camp style workout DVDs which are really great- they're by Lindsay Brinn and they're 10 minute workouts and are HARDCORE. I used to do them three times a week and do 2-4 segments per workout. They go so fast and you get a killer workout. What I would do is get into workout clothes and set the DVD up before DS went to sleep, then once he was down go out and hit play.

    Could you get up 15 mins earlier? Star jumps, russian twists, jogging on the spot, planking, squats, push ups, sit ups. Skipping rope is a great idea as well. Then just do another 15mins when ds goes to bed.??

    OMG there is a gazillion awesome workout sessions you can do at home on 'youtube'!! I use them when the kids are sick and stuff and Am unable to use the gym creche. Take your pick and some just train using your own body weight and things around the house. There are great ones that only take 20 mins or half an hour and you still get a great workout! You can even pop one on when your little one is around- I know mine are quite entertained by my various poses lol!

    Or do a 30day squat challenge/ab challenge or something similar - these are great!

    Do you work somewhere with stairs? When I lived in inner city melbourne I used to run up and walk down the stairs of my apartment block and do some crunches etc at the bottom. Could you do this at work?

    I have Lindsay Brin' postnatal boot camp 1&2, and Shed 5 fast. A few others too but they're my favourites. I got them off Amazon.

    Hi, my day is similar to yours except I don't have a baby. I try to walk a few days at lunchtime, just a gentle walk. I have a few injuries so I don't exercise at a high intensity but even just a 20 min walk is great. I manage my weight and health through nutrition

    It's hard work.

    Can u get up slightly earlier (like 15min)get home slightly later and join a gym during lunchtime or jog or walk at lunch?

    If only 3 days a week?

    I guess it will be earlier once spring time hits coz you'll be able to take your ds for evening walks.

    Or are there any outdoorsy mummy exercise groups near your house that you can join where your ds goes with you? That way on weekends you could do this with bub..

    Hugs. It's tough I know..
