I'm not really sure how this whole forum thing work, but I am working out because I am a single Dad. I realized not to long ago that I was in the worst shape ever, and I needed to start working out and getting healthy so that I could be there for my kids when they need me. I will try to keep you posted on my progress, and I'll through in any exercises we do as a family.

Being a single parent is tough but it can get done.  Its all a balancing act and a little sacrifice. Working 10 to 12 hrs day with a 1 hour commute to and from.  Homework with my son pack lunches, shower, prayer, story time, he sleeps and I go for my run or my exercise sometime both. Routine and planning are essential. My exercise is sacred to me need it to unwind amd relax and make me feel oh so good. Wonder why I never started before. Best of luck...

We have no option as long as it gets done. I really like it in the morning but as it is I already wake up at 5am. So I say just put on youe tennis shoes and get it done. In a couple of months you'll crave it....

I'm having a very hard time this week.  I can't seem to find time to work out.
20 Sep
Maybe easy stuff after they go to bed? A 2 minute plank or stretching? Its hard but keeping even a little going helps.

I know that it is hard to work out as a single parent.  I would try to workout before I woke my daughter up before I went to work or when she went to bed.  Keep the faith.

You are doing a good job. Your a good role model for your daughter as she sees you turn into super dad. I am a single parent of 2 girls & my youngest is 1 yrs old. I totally understand your challenge. Stick with it. I am learning every thing we do together is exercise too. Use the playground, great free workout center  :-) good luck!

I'm so excited I got to work out twice this week, and I know I'll get to work on Saturday.

If you want to fit in more work outs. Take every little piece of time that's free and work out. I do a lot of the 3-10 minute work outs. I'm not single but I'm the one who takes care of my daughter majority of the day.
12 Oct
Thanks for the advice. I will defiantly do that.
13 Oct
Total agreement with Alex - ido most of the care giving for my 3 kids. I even do a workout while they watch the freakin disney channel. But i get ot done, im with them and it beats sitting on a couch! I found that once i got creative witb small bits of time i could workout a lot more.

My daughter likes being part of it.

I created a very simple work out for a single parent.  I recommend that you complet it before you eat breakfast.

Imma single mom of 3 lil ones 4, 3, 1 yrs old. Its hard to find time to work out for sure! But kids love to be like there P's when they are lil so let them join in tho somtimes that is a lil distracting. My favorite thing to do is sneek it in when doing everyday your things. Like when the kids are in the bath I will do pushups by the tub and stretches...its hard and I'm not very motivated...but I'm working on it..  you can do it! Just stay focused

Lol sorry I was distracted while writing that...

This week I lost my focus halfway through the week.  I am working on a cardio work out to burn off some of the fat covering my abs.  I am eating about 5 to 6 times a day and I have noticed a difference.  I also wanted to say (to those of you who are Christians) that this week I was reminded of how much I have to work at my relationship with Christ.  Just like I workout everyday or every other day I must take time to be with God.
