I'll start off by saying that fitness doesn't need to be going to the gym or doing anything specific. JUST MOVE YOUR BODY! Many people, myself included, get discouraged because they don't know where to start.
My favorite way to get active is getting outside with my family. It can be difficult especially since it is colder right now, but bundle up and get moving!
My current routine works mainly because my toddler still naps twice a day for 1.5-2 hours. Do what works for you and your routine.
Currently I'm using this bike which I received as a Birthday gift from my wonderful husband. I bike for 30 mins to an hour a day. I also do weighted arm workouts while I'm biking along with a different body weight workout for each day.
I also use my FitBit to help track my steps and activity. I aim for 7,500 steps a day, which can sometimes be a challenge since I stay at home, but I do like a challenge.
Please add me on MyFitnessPal and FitBit if you have them so we can motivate each other.
