When I have days like that I kinda tweak the routine. Like when I wash clothes I will go down in the basement get the clean clothes out of the dryer and put the wet in the dryer, I go back up stairs and get the dirty and back down to the basement. It makes for and extra trip for every load. I also have a 15minute work out that I "try" to do a couple of times a week.
Also try to get out and go for walks. Your kids will love it and it does get easier the more you do it. If you don't have a double stroller just do it the way I did, wear the baby, put the 2 year old in the stroller, and the 4 year old can walk. It seems hard but in practice it is truly easy. Also start taking all of the kids to the grocery store. That will free up some babysitter time to maybe go to the gym. Because Mommy remember you are still important too! Think about if you trade the hassle of taking the kids to the store (believe me I get it I have 7, 5, 2 and the baby) for some time just for you, YOU ARE WORTH IT!
