    I understand it is hard to get up early. Today was a little easier for me to get up at 5:00 am because of the time change, my body felt like it was really 6:00. I will hopefully and prayerfully be working soon so I don't know when I will be able to find time to exercise I'll see how all that works out.

    My suggestions would just be to get in exercise whenever you can. Maybe just getting some really good music and dancing around the house for 30 minutes, your boys would probably have fun dancing with you. If I didn't have the great cd that I have there is no way I would be able to get up and go walking when it is so cold out. But I look forward to having the time to myself and enjoying my gospel cd so much that I don't even feel the cold. My husband has been good enough to volunteer to get in our son's bed just in case he wakes up, which helps.

    I think as long as you keep fighting you will get there eventually. I've had so many ups and down with my weight, but I know that if I quit I would be a lot bigger so even where I'm at I consider myself successful. Keep treking on.

    I can imagine that with four boys it would be very hard to find time to exercise, I have problems finding time and I only have one. I used to get up really early to go out walking, I have some really good cd's that I love listening to so they inspire me to walk. Lately my son has been getting up earlier and now that he knows how to open doors I can't go, so most of my exercise is done by taking him to the park. Sometimes if it is not too hot I will walk for a half hour with hime in the stroller and then I will let him play and try to get some physical activity in with him.
    I can't imagine that you're not getting at least some exercise by chasing your little ones around. I bet you have a ton of patience.

    Welcome! I'm from PA also. I see you have a Kenton in your family - so do I! I don't believe I've ever met another Kenton!! Very different name. Good luck on your journey and have fun!! Enjoy the beautiful autumn colors of PA. Kelli
