Exercise - Does Baby Lifting Count?

“Exercise, what exercise? Who has time?  Can I get fit through baby lifting?”


Mommies struggle with fitness every single day. They have to make choices because their time is so limited.  In our 2006-2007 survey, 67.1% of the moms felt that they didn’t get enough exercise. Is that so hard to believe?


Hey, the demands of motherhood are harsh.  It’s extremely challenging for mommies to maintain their physical well-being.  The child seems to need support almost every waking moment and then once the child is sleeping mom must play catch-up on all the things she hasn’t done.  Even if they’re fortunate enough to have hired help, mommies still have many things that must get done and only so much time. What’s the first thing that’s sacrificed? Exercise! 


“Spending hours satisfying the kids and others: lifting, rushing, organizing and other things keep me busy enough.  By the end of the day, that glass of wine and the couch looks a lot more tempting than running to the gym.”
