I have been pleased at how easily I have found half an hour to do the exercises each day: instead of feeding the chickens after I have dropped the YFG off at school, I go out and do them at 8am once I have done the lunchboxes and made sure she has breakfast on the go. The EFG leaves at 7.55am so I know she is ready and off. The chickens take me about 15 - 20 minutes at that time of the day, so I am back in the house by 8.20, usually still in PJs, so that is when I rush upstairs and put on some exercise clothes and stick my hair up in a ponytail, and clean my teeth. We leave for school at 8.35am, and I am usually home by 8.45 at the latest - and as soon as I walk back in the door, it is exercise time! I'm done by 9.20, and then I hit the shower and get ready for the rest of the day.
It doesn't work as smoothly as that on days when I need to be somewhere early, but I can juggle it around a little. And for the summer holidays when the kids are lounging around a little more, I will just be doing it a bit earlier, before they surface in the mornings!! Any rude comments, and they will be banished from the lounge or made to join in.....
The bare minimum.
