Both, depending how busy I am (I work freelance from home). So sometimes I go to the gym when DS is at the childminder and sometimes I go when DH is around and can look after him. They do have a creche but it's rubbish.

a few sit ups and stretches in the evenings and 20 mins on an exercise machine and an exercise video twice a week

Not enough really

i try and do 2 x 15 mins on a cross trainer 5 times a week. i do it when the kids are at school with MTV blaring out - i either do 15 mins or 5 songs and some of those raps are very very long...

Erm... I don't, other than a bit of tap dancing one evening a week when dh is at home. I would find it hard to find the time. I spent years doing swimming training, so I've decided to have a bit of a rest for a couple of years. When dd is in pre-school I'm going to get fit again as I have a surf board that's rusting in the shed.

Sounds like a great idea to have a treadmill at home. Aren't they very noisy though?
I'm trying to regain my health after being ill with asthma during most of January and early Feb, then having a miscarriage. I try and go to the gym every 2-3 days for an hour or so--a mixture of cardio and weights or just the cardio if am in a hurry. Makes me fel good and counteracts some of the comfort-eating I've been doing since the m/c.
Would you like to return to dancing when your dd is older?

Aikido 3 x a week at the dojo, keeps you damn fit!

I run 3 times a week, well I'm just getting back into it after my 'Christmas Break' . I really struggle on a treadmill and much prefer the road but the weather has been a bit of an issue. There's a few more of us here , a couple of good runners and some just starting out.

I think its because I can change pace easier, step it up or down, whenever I need to. Also I run with a friend and we gossip (well grunt at each other) so it passes the time. I find the treadmill a bit monotonous even with MTV, the downside to the roads is the weather though, I often look like Nanook of the North lol!
