So....I'm a runner. But, I can't run. My sister and I got in a fight and she is no longer watching my daughter. My alternative childcare (her nana) will have her until she starts daycare in a week. My daughter has had a nasty stomach bug for a week now preventing me from having the option to take her the gym and nana is too exhausted to watch her after I get off work....so I've gained about 3 pounds or so....and boy can my clothes feel it...

My jeans feel like a Picaso......painted on.

I can't wait to be able to workout again. I just don't feel like myself....and my stress outlet is exercise....BOO!!!!

Okay.....rant over.

As a single mom with 100% custody, living room workouts are your friend. Fitness blender is on youtube.

You can get Level 1 of the 30-day-shred on youtube for free - it's about 25 minutes and it's a really good workout. :)

Its not that really. I have plenty of videos and weights and all of that, its the motivation I lack when I can't do the type of exercise that makes me happy. If I know ANYTHING about weight loss....you won't do it unless you find something you can stick with. I lost 100 pounds when I was 17..... and then I lost all 47 pounds of my baby weight in 6.5 months.... but now weigh about 2 pounds heavier than pre-pregnancy....(all ass I believe... )

I just know that what brings me joy.....(and pain) is running...and weights... and I won't do it unless I can motivate myself.....

I suppose when I'm wearing maternity clothes again I will find my motivation!!!

JUST KIDDING! I have a run planned Saturday and if my sitter cancels....my daughter is well enough now for the gym nursery.... and I'm a little on the desperate side!

I second fitnessblender! I love Kelly and Daniel! Jessica Smith also has a great indoor jogging workout. I know, I know, not the same, but still exercise!

I hope your DD feels better. Stomach bugs are the worst.

Check Craigslist for a treadmill (and other fitness gear). If you're patient and set your max limit, you can score good deals.

Hubby and I have purchased the following over the years:

Home gym (weight stations, etc) - $40
Treadmill - $50
Stationary bike - $20

Garage sales are good too, but CL doesn't require driving around aimlessly.

P90X has some really great cardio / weight videos. I am on the 3rd we of P90, but i switched to the 30 minute videos on Sunday, so its like i am starting all over again.

before I got my thyroid checked out, i gained about 10-15 pounds in a month and a half. I know that Fat Fat Fat feeling.

Shelly,

How is Piper in a jogging stroller? Maybe you could see if one of your running buddies would let you borrow one?? They are kind of pricey and I think not worth buying since kids grow out of them so fast. If not, I'll bet you could find one on Craigslist or a secondhand store.

Watch Craigslist for treadmills. Esp this time of year, people are giving up on their resolutions and get rid of them. I have two that I got off of CL and paid less than $150 for both total. One is even a gym quality proform. I love it.

Hope Piper feels better soon.

Get one of those running buggy thingies and take off....unless it is too cold where you are.
Then I suggest a little Zumba. It's fast paced and is actually fun. It's not the same as running, but for a rainy day (or bug flu day) it's an good alternative!!!

My treadmill was $100, hardly used. However, HEAVY. HARD TO MOVE. You may have to calculate moving costs into the cost of the machine.

Also, if it has been kept in a basement or garage, watch out for a mildew smell.

I don't want to discourage the craigslist option, just give you advice based on my experience. Mine is great, just needed extra cleaning and a tuneup.
