Excersise question

Hi all! I've been thinking lately that I really should start working out. At the moment I have no car, and most gyms are far from home, so that is not an option. I can walk, taking Fede with me in the stroller, but it is winter here, and some days I don't want to expose Fede to the cold weather.
So I thought that maybe I could get a work out DVD, and do stuff at home. Any suggestions? Is there anything for post partum gym?

No suggestions Mari! Though babies are more resilient to the cold than you might think. You probably could go for a walk most days (as long as it isn't SUPER cold) with Fede well-bundled!! Sometimes people go walking in malls here in the winter--I don't know if you have a big indoor mall near you.

I'm not sure beyond that, though, but I'm sure others will have suggestions. I know Megan is really into certain kinds of exercise.

Do you have or can you get a Wii Fit?

I love my Wii Fit. Especially the yoga, it's great for stress.

Unless it is below zero and you are freezing I think Fede will be just fine outside, especially all bundled up in the stroller! I don't have any DVD tips but I know there are quite a few geared specifically for after pregnancy so I am sure someone will have a good tip:)

You are probably right... Were I live we are not used to many below 0 temps, but people is still "scared" of cold weather, specially with children. But anyways, I'll give the walks a shot!!

Hey Mari! DH and I have done some of the Jillian Michaels' workout DVDs, and I like her '30-day Shred' DVD because the workouts are only 20 minutes long, which is totally doable! She's kind of tough, but she promises great results if you stick to it. DH and I don't do it every day, but I can definitely feel a difference. GL!

YAY EXERCISE!!!

Okay, so I like to exercise as Adrienne pointed out, hehe...

I heartily second the Jillian Michaels' recommendation. The 30 Day Shred and Yoga Meltdown are great for squeezing in a workout during baby naps. Her other workouts are a little bit longer, but they're great, too. They're all extremely effective!

The other thing I like to do is run. Do you have a jogging stroller? We got ours for pretty cheap and it works great.

Oh, and I do less strenuous yoga a few times a week. I like the Yoga Zone series, because each DVD has two short (15-20 min.) workouts, so again I can squeeze them in during naptime.

Oh, also, I do the hundred push-ups and two hundred squats and two hundred sit-ups challenges. You can find them at hundredpushups.com.

GL!
