Long time lurker, first time poster.
I have been following the SimpleFit program for a little while now, although I had a couple of months off at the start of the year with injury, a death in the family and a seemingly endless stream of house guests.
Moving on and putting all that behind me, I'm back into it and focused. My biggest obstacle now is also my main motivation. My daughter.
I work shift work, and setting aside a time to exercise uninterrupted is a luxury I don't always have. As a result, I am often forced to workout while looking after my little girl.
I don't mind exercising in front of her, as I think it's important that she grows up thinking exercise is just something you do. Also, we have fun together. I let her crawl over me when I'm doing push ups, give her a shoulder rides while I do squats and so on.
The problem is that I often take an hour or more to complete a workout that should take 15 to 20 minutes. I really enjoy working out with my little girl, but am I compromising my workout too much? What can I do to make working out with my daughter more effective?
