I Need to Rearrange My Day

A typical day runs like this for me:
6:00-6:30//get myself dressed
6:30-7:00//get Jack up fed, dressed, and changed
7:00-7:15//get stuff the day ready
7:15-8:00//drive to work and drop Jack at daycare
8:00-4:30//work, pick Jack up, and drive home
4:30-5:30//blog while Jack naps
5:30-6:00//play with Jack and start supper
6:00-7:00//eat supper, clean up, play with Jack
7:00-8:00//clean up, play with Jack, bath, laundry, just random house stuff
8:00-8:30//feed Jack and get him down for bed
8:30-9:30//watch tv or take care of things I didn't get a chance to do

As you see there is no fitness whatsoever in that schedule. I use to be a walker. Every day when I got home from work I would walk. Getting pregnant stopped that immediately. I spotted a lot early on and was too scared to exercise. Plus I had worked all day and wanted to sit.

Jack is now 5 months old and I'm still holding on to 30 lbs. I need to put exercise back into my life. I'm the kind of person who can't just eat better and lose weight. Exercise is a must in order for the scale to budge. I just don't know where to put the time it would take to workout for at least 30 minutes a day. After much thought about how my day works, I decided that I need to start walking as soon as I get home from work like I use to. During that time I've already been up and moving so what's 30 more minutes? Plus Jack is asleep during that time and if it is nice out then I can pop him in the stroller. If he is asleep, I can jump on the treadmill. 
Now I say all of this without actually doing any of it yet but it's a nice thought. I'll keep you in the know and tell you if I'm able to stay on track. Of course, my new problem is when will I blog. My plan is to do better about writing posts for the week on the weekends. At night before bed I can read my favorite blogs. I'll hopefully figure it out and lose those 30 lbs!
