My name is Rachel, im 22 and a mothere of an 8 month old wee girl called Sophie (she is 8 months on the 19th). With being a mum its quite hard to get out the house for exercise because you need to think about taking the baby everywhere, my partner works mon-fri 9-5 so I only really get time to get out to the gym for a swim at night.

I go swimming twice a week and on one of those nights I do water aerobics. I am going to go to zumba and a spinning class too but I wanted something I could do two or three times a week during the day when Sophie has her nap so I just bought online an aerobic step and a couple of workout dvds.

They will be arriving on tuesday, so excited to get started.

I am on day 3 of my diet and I feel great, I will admit to having 2 glasses of white wine last night because my partner and I had a couple of old friends over but I was out for a brisk walk with the pram for 45 minutes this morning.

How is everyone doing?

@mzKiki....Thanks very much. I am so excited, I wish I had got into this frame of mind alot sooner. I want to set a good example to our daughter too. I just ordered a hula hoop and dvd. In half and hour you can burn around 200-300 calories depending on how good you are, so for me it will around 200 because I cannot hula hoop but I want to give it a go because it will be a laugh doing it.I read online about people losing weight with hula hooping and having fun too.its good for getting rid of love handles and toning your tummy... CANNOT WAIT. Im full of energy today!! How are you getting on with your diet??xx
