    Do you exercise? What do you do and how often?

    Yes. I walk daily, use our eliptical every other morning and bike on weekends. I also own a kayak that I love. I use the Wii fit when its cold outside to get me moving, usually during the warm months we're outside all the time so not so much then.

    Right now I sit on my butt. I can't wait for slightly cooler temperatures so that it's cool enough in the morning to go out walking again. I really enjoyed walking 2-3 miles most days last winter and spring, but unless I'm willing to go walking before the sun is up it's just not going to happen right now.

    I do try to walk daily and I try to take the stairs up to my office every morning (12 flights), but I really could be doing a lot more.

    Yes, I try to exercise 5 days a week. I am a Zumba instuctor, so at least two days a week are Zumba. Lately, it has been 3 days a week. I am trying Piloxing on Thursday! I also attend a Turbokick class every Friday. I am big into group exercise. An elliptical or treadmill will not do it for me. I just thrive on group stuff. It makes me work harder and knowing people expect me to be in class makes me go. It helped me lose 40 pounds a couple of years ago, and it helped me lose the weight I put on with the twins. Now, if only it could fix what the twins damaged (abs and pelvis).

    I was doing Zumba until I got pg and then stopped. I only did it one time a week - sometimes twice. Now I just walk a mile a day at lunch and chase after Deacon.

    The only exercise I'm getting right now is chasing around a toddler. We have an elliptical that I used to use on a pretty regular basis but I haven't used it since before I was pregnant. I was taking Jordan for walks everyday before the temperatures got ridiculous. I am with Jackie, patiently awaiting cooler temps. Maybe one of these days I will join the Y or something so I can try out some fun classes. I'm still too overprotective to let Jordan go to the gym daycare.

    No. How horrible is that?? Pre-kids, I'd exercise minimally. Post-kids, I just haven't figured out to fit it into my schedule. DH works crazy hours and by the time he is home, I am just not motivated to do anything because I am usually doing housework or playing catch up with work. Now, on my off days we are pretty active, but I'm not doing anything regular in the sense of toning or cardio, like I'd like to do!

    Yes. I work out 5-7 days a week. I run 3-6 miles a day, with 1 long run of 7-14 miles a week. Plus I lift at the gym 3-4 days a week, alternating arms and legs.

    If I could get my diet under control, I might actually look like I workout that much.

    That's my big challenge too, Amber.

    Yes, I exercise, mainly by running 3x a week. Just started a 5k running clinic recently and have been going to the group runs being held by the local running store Weds and Suns. Right now I'm running about 3k each time.

    I have also been walking home with Evie in the stroller about 3-4 days a week. I really enjoy this time with Evie, and even tho it's all uphill, it's totally worth it for the quality time talking with Evie.

    I am thinking of trying out early morning yoga, maybe next week. I feel like I need a destressing, stretching type of workout to counterbalance running and work (and maybe life, too...?). I would rather do yoga another time but with Evie, I just don't have any other time. I wish she was old enough to do mother-daughter yoga.
