I don't mean doing exercise in your car, even though some abdominal bracing and Kegels would be a great option for busy moms. What I mean is looking at the time when you travel to and from work and figuring out if it isn't better spent at a gym on the way.
To be at work at 8 a.m., I leave home at 7:15 a.m. and spend 45 minutes in traffic. If I left at 6:50 when traffic is better, I could be at the gym close to work at 7 a.m. That would leave me with a good 45 minutes I could work out at the gym, before running to work, not to mention I wouldn't have spent the extra time sitting in traffic, shortening my muscles and breathing car fumes.
If I left work at 6 p.m. when everyone else is leaving, I would spend an hour in traffic. Instead I go to the gym and leave there at 7:15 p.m. when traffic is easy and I make it home in 15 minutes. See? Less time in traffic and suddenly I have all the gym time in the world?
More ways to make your gym time shorter? If you work out in the morning, sleep until you need to get up and go, jump in your gym clothes and carry your work clothes with you. Shower at the gym and save from your morning rituals time. If you work out after work, just go home in your gym clothes and take a shower there. Less time in the changing room means more time to work out or spend with your loved ones.
