  • Let's see how Rebecca Pratt handles it with 3 kids fulltime!
  • all that running around in itself is a workout routine. get creative with it and enjoy
  • Great advice for everyone, I am going to put some of these into action. Before I got off track with my weight loss and exercise goals, anytime I was waiting in line, I would to stretches or sway from side to side. Making the most of every situation. Keep Sparking y'all
  • Wow - no one has commented on this oldie for a year. Use your drive time at red lights - how can anyone consider doing something so incredibly stupid yet alone advocating it. When you are driving you need to pay attention. Wonder if the "expletive" who cut me off right after a red light was still flexing their feet to hit the gas.

    The best way to have a healthy lifestyle and work in what is important is to say NO. Kids need creative play time not just organized sports .... interesting that what is supposed to raise healthy kids has instead resulted in an explosion of obesity. And then you read about free range kids - like there is something wrong with kids walking home from school alone - or going to the park or - name that activity. How do we teach kids today to be responsible if they are "kids" until they go away to college (where now they don't have to work).
  • Up front and pure honest help for the CEO moms who keep American homes up and running like they should be (no pun intended) : )
    My past experience as a CEO working mom applauds you for the great tools you've placed on the table!!
    Thank You Becky!
  • This article struck a deep emotional chord for me, because she describes my life. When I had little children at home, I used to wonder what those stay-at-home moms did with all that free time once all the kids were in full day school. I tell you what, those few hours every day disappear quickly just running a household, and then the kids get out of school, and I am on duty for the next 7 hours doing the same things she describes above.
    Thanks for the article. It makes me feel understood as I am about to squeeze in some exercise while I watch TV and then fold laundry.
  • I don't think that modern life necessitates filling every minute of the day. The description of the person's day in this article sounds like she's barely above water. It's only when you slow down that you can truly appreciate what life has to offer. Thank you, Glenn
  • GREAT !

    THANKS for sharing
  • Good article. I try to get exercise in a little every time I am doing something.
  • I do a few 'sink push-ups' in every room I clean.
