My girls don't currently nap at the same time. Doesn't happen! =P I'm multipurposing my bike as a shelf blockade, though. I think I may get a video or something. Dance around the ankle biters. The ONE time I was able to get my 45 minutes it felt heavenly. My whole body tingled when it was over.

DH and I go to the gym 3 nights a week. Usually I take Logan with me in his stroller. We walk around the track for a while, and if the gym isn't busy I just park his stroller next to the machines while I work out. If it is busy and too many people milling around, we just walk while DH works out and then when he is done, he walks with baby so I can work out. Sometimes my mom or his will offer to take the baby so we can go without him.

I can't believe your gym lets you have child there. Midwesterners are so nice!

DH broke my treadmill (and his toe) yesterday while moving it. So I guess I will be finding a dvd to do now. I don't leave the house without Tessa because when I come back DH will just tell me how she cried the entire time. And the makes me really mad at him for not being able to handle her.

Dh is wonderful and watches Henry three times a week while I work out. I do 2 x 20 min sessions on the rowing machine and take a 2 hr ballet class 1xper week. It is my "me" time.

sorry that I'm taking the thread in a different direction but I had to comment. Lauren, I totally get you. I will need to be out of the house from five till midnight on tuesdays but Josh really needs to nurse to get to sleep for the night and the bottle just doesn't put him to sleep. My SO will try a tiny bit to stop him crying, but he gives up pretty quick so I know that my poor baby will be crying himself to sleep every tuesday night until May. Anyway, as far as exercise goes, I use my elliptical and I do crunches and free weights. I do it whenever josh naps. my two and a half year old is just in the other room playing or watching tv.

It's the local YMCA - they're pretty family friendly. They do have a daycare service but you can't take your child there until they are 6 months old, so for now he just hangs out with me in the stroller!

^^ that's awesome. I wonder if the local one here would be so accommodating.

No exercise for me currently, though I'd like to. I'm sure SO would watch him no problem, but he already does a bunch during the week while I work so I hate to give any more time up right now. He'sgetting better with the stroller so wwalks may be something we will start once we're moved, settled, with time.
