Many people assume we stay-at-home moms have all the time we want to care for our responsibilities and have time left over to spend on ourselves. When I first became a stay at home mom, I thought I would have time. Time to keep the house clean, the kids orderly, and be a fun mom that was fit and healthy.




Even though it is always my goal to be the best I can each day, I don’t always get there. There is so much unexpected motherhood work that happens each day that is necessary, but takes time away from what I want to get done. Don’t get me wrong, I want to care for my family however I need to, but I do have to push aside my hobbies, projects, etc., often. I know it is only the season of motherhood, but it can be hard to set aside that part of me many days.

Exercise is one way I try to fit in time for myself. I have not been good at fitting in regular exercise since my second child was born. There were no regular nap times to fit in a good workout, but I found a way to have fun working out, on my time, even on the busiest days of being a mom-Fitfusion.

Trying to fit in exercise as a busy mom is tough, but streaming videos at home with no commitment is a great way to get a workout in even with children at home.

Exercise for Busy Moms

I streamed my Fitfusion workouts before lunch because that is the time of day when my children are best behaved. I used the Ipad, and my children even tried the workouts with me on rainy days.


Some days they let me exercise with a Fitfusion cardio video for 30 minutes, but most days, at least one baby needed to be held, so I worked out holding a baby-built in weight training.

Don’t worry about time. Fitfusion has so much variety in available video types, you can find workouts that are short or long depending on how busy your day. Do one in the morning and one at nap time if you want a longer workout-any exercise is great, no matter how you fit it in.

Inexpensive, no time commitments, no boredom from working out to the same DVD every day, no need to drive to a gym, no expensive equipment-I loved it!

The folks at Fitfusion asked me to share a before and after picture with you to help show my progress after using Fitfusion for 4 months. (I am not too excited about this part, but if it can show you the benefits to this resource, then I am ok with it.)


When starting a workout program, take a before picture and another after 3-4 months to see your progress. Check out a review of Fitfusion at The Stay-at-Home-Mom Survival Guide.

My before picture was taken when the twins were 7 months old, and the after photo was taken after 4 months of using Fitfusion videos for my exercise time.

I was able to work out about 3 times per week. (Of course I was holding two babies at one time, carrying loads of laundry up and down the stairs, breastfeeding, and the other heavy lifting work we moms do during a day that helped burn calories too!) I encourage you to take a picture of yourself before and then after a few months of working out to help realize the progress you are making. It is fun to see the difference.
