Unless you have to get in your workouts.
Which I do.So how do I squeeze these in when the whole family is home all day, or running around to different activites? Well, sometimes I schedule it.
Other times I try to get up before everyone else does...although this is harder than you'd think. Sometimes the kids actually get up earlier than we do, and even if I manage to get up before everyone else, the dogs make so much noise running downstairs and being excited about breakfast that someone else usually ends up waking up. And seriously, I really like to try to sleep in on the weekends. Even if I'm not that good at it...
Sometimes, I simply take advantage of when my husband has to run errands, and I have him take the kids with him. Other times, when we are home, I just try to find a time when everyone else is otherwise occupied. Then I squeeze it in.
When all else fails, I try to involve everyone in a workout together. We play hide and seek. We play a sport outside. We use the Wii and play "Wii Fit" together or one of the "Just Dance" games. You'd be surprised how many calories you can burn during a serious session of Just Dance! Otherwise I throw in a workout program that I know my kids can do with me.

It can be challenging to get it in, especially when you'd rather play and take a break. But just like all things that are good for us, we need to learn how to make this a habit, and not a chore.
So how do you get your workout in?
