    How old's your little boy? My daughter's now 16 months, and I do a lot of going out for walks with her. On days when she wants to walk too I do a lot of marking time on the spot, as she understandably doesn't walk as fast as I'd like to! I also will walk as far as she'll want to walk, and then put her in the pushchair and go for a longer walk at my speed too. I've found it works quite well for keeping her happy, entertained and interested, as well as getting me off my butt!

    I've also just recently got my bike out to start doing that too, but I'm not yet confident enough to put her on the back. I have picked up a child bike seat off freecycle though, so once I've got a helmet for her then I'm hoping to do that too.

    Rachel hes 3.....and we walk a LOT, every day but its not enough. His short legs dont move very fast and hes now too big for a buggy so its a bit of a nightmare lol. Our local beach has an outdoor gym/park which is fab (and free lol) so we go there sometimes but again i cant really go for it whilst keeping an eye on Sonny! Someone mentioned the 30day shred dvd last week....anyone know if its any good? xx

    Hey babe I've got a 4yr old and a hubbie who works nights so understand what you mean as when I get in from work in the evenings I can't go for a couple of hrs to the gym.

    How about a couple of DVD's or if you have X-box I would strongly recommend EA Active - it is fantastic - pricey but I love it - is really like having a personal trainer!

    Hi, my hubby works abroad most weeks so when get in from work I don't have the time or energy to go to a gym. My kids are 6 and 3, walking the dig us great but the 3 year old drags his feet. Last summer we borrowed a bike trailer for him which was great - not only was trailing him behind me great exercise but it got us out cycling as a family. He is 4 in march and now too big for the trailer so the plan is to get a tag-a- long for the summer. If you've got a bike, why don't you check out eBay for a trailer or i think Costco in Edinburgh have them for £35ish.

    skipping, hulahooping, running up n down stairs are good, no cost home exercises i think. maybe something with one of these big balls?

    oh, and dancing!

    "Each day I count wasted in which there has been no dancing" Nietzsche said it, so must be true.

    No diet just running and weight training.
    would recommend basic muscle building exercises...it will raise your metabolism and burn more fat...
