How do busy mom's find time to workout with a toddler running around to take care of? I can't afford a sitter just to workout but it's complicated trying to work out with a little one climbing all over youFellow workout mamas!

I workout when my son sleeps.

At first it was hard for me to but now my son has his coloring time n nap or bed time thats when I do it occasionally color time gets interrupted for cuddle time but you can pause your work out and resume it later.

Ive only been doing my workouts from here for a week and a half ive been doing a high intensity one for 8 min twice a day because thats all the time I have before I have to get kids to school but I try to do my first in the am after I get my oldest son off to school about 7 sometimes if my 2 year old Is awake she trys to climb all over me but sometimes she does it too but its better if you can get it done before the kids are awake period as my 6th grader makes fun of me

I try to do short workouts throughout the day.  Usually after I take my 6 year old to the bus stop but before my 3 year old wakes up. Then again when my 3 year old takes a nap and then at night when ALL the kids are in bed.

I have 3 kids and I also work from home, so I squeeze one in every chance I get.
