I Lost 5 Lbs!

I’m a working mom and am desparate to find other working mothers that face the same daily challenges to becoming/staying fit and healthy. If you find yourself in the same boat as me, maybe we can join forces and fight the fat together!

Hey! I’m right there with you Nancy. Except I work from home, right next to the refrigerator ;-) i’d like to lost some weight and get in better physical shape. My 40th birthday is coming up and I don’t want to turn 40 heavier than I’ve ever been!

I just quit my job and I will stay home for the next 3 months. I found it easier to exercise when I was working. Now my kids take all my time :-/ and they won’t even nap (grrr).

When I was working, I was walking every day to get some lunch. And as I had to eat every day ;) I knew I would exercise every day :) Good thing to have no food at work.

On the other hand, chasing my toddlers IS a form of exercise…

I totally underestimated the level of activity I had at work. Moving to working from home has really taken sedentary to a whole new level. I have a 5 and 6 year old ;-) Congratulations on your time with your little ones- you never will get two (at least I won’t) that little again so enjoy it!

@hodgepode > Mine are 3 and 1 and I know I’m done with kids ;)
you know, I have a friend who is 33 and she started to seriously workout because she wants to be in the best shape of her life when she turns 40. I think that’s a great goal!

Working, single mom here! I work about 9-9.5 hours a day and come home to a very busy 3 y/o. I’m looking for someone who can motivate me to get back into shape. I suffered an injury at work almost two years ago and have slowly put on the pounds. Two years ago I was done to 176lbs and feeling good…then I was hurt. Just need another mommy motivator who can send me a note saying go to the gym today or don’t eat so much chocolate in the afternoon! HELP! LOL I need to get back on track.

I Lost 5 Lbs!

I am a working mother too.. I have 4 kids so finding time used to be hard..until My two girls are in second grade so I drop them off in the morning, load my two boys up in the wagon, walk a mile maybe 2 depending on my schedule that day. Tan and then back home to do the Insanity work out routine(by beachbody) After that i have about 2 hours to clean and get ready for work before picking up the girls from school dropping them off at their Nana’s and then heading to work.. I am a very busy I work until 10pm sometimes 11pm then its shower time and bed so I can do it all over again the next day. There have been some days when I don’t want to get out of bed at all but I push myself through.. im tired of being a lazy failure. I have finally found my will power but a lil extra motivation wouldn’t hurt.. So I am looking for some friends on here. Feel free to add me:)
