Getting Into Shape

Now that my daughter is here, I am desperate to get back into shape. How did you do it?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: When my daughter was a baby, I needed to exercise, but I felt very guilty not paying attention to her. So I put on an exercise video, but with the volume off. Then I played one of her children’s CDs and put her in her bouncy seat or on a mat. She would listen to her music and watch me exercise. I think she thought I was dancing for her!
