Hello,
I'm new to working out. I have nine children but by the end of the summer, I don't want to look like it. I don't have much time and I lose my excitement for working out easy(the children distract me). Any advice/ motivation/ direction you can give would be awesome.

Thanks in Advance!

Linda

Only thing I could think is get the smaller ones in bed a little earlier and get the ones old enough involved a little let them work out with you my 5 year old gets mad if I wait till he goes to bed before I workout that's all I got cause 9 kids would be a workout in itself or work small workouts in your daily routine if ya can get alone for line ten mins a day ya need some cardio like jogging or something like that good luck stAy strong

Linda, first of all I wanna say I'm proud of you for taking action towards your goals!  I have three of my own and raised 3 more!  At one point all 6 at the same time for a year! Second, I'd like to encourage you to make just 5 minutes for yourself each morning to connect with your best self before you start your busy day.  Third, I would advise you get all the children involved!  Make it a family project & you are guaranteed success!  If you need help, ideas, motivation, or direction- I'd be glad to offer some for you.
