Working Out Is No Longer Working Out.

This weekend, while standing in checkout line at the supermarket, I couldn’t help but be reminded of my failure (so far) to stick to my healthy New Year’s resolution to get back in some semblance of shape. Even my favorite guilty pleasure, US WEEKLY, featured Trista of Bachelorette fame beaming from the cover with a perfect, size 2 beach body – complete with ripped abs – a mere 5 months after her baby’s birth. Meanwhile, my three-year old poked my tummy last night and asked if I had another baby in there. I really do want to get back on the right fitness track, but between work and home, needy colleagues and kids, my “exercise time” gets whittled down to nothing. What is the secret to getting regular exercise if you’re a working mom?



Believe us, we feel your pain. If only juggling a thousand responsibilities a day resulted in 6-pack abs! One thing we do know is that trying to measure your own “success” by another person’s yardstick is a recipe for failure. In that spirit, here are a few tips that are designed to help working moms get moving in the New Year. And for all of you working moms who have figured out the secret recipe for carving out exercise time, please share your thoughts with other Mommy Track'd readers.





Don’t forget - all of you working moms, please post your thoughts or issues about staying on the right fitness track with other Mommy Track'd readers.
