Walk in a Group
In the months after Gabriel's birth, I bumped into lots of new moms in town or at the supermarket, and we'd inevitably find ourselves standing around moaning about weight gain and boredom. Finally, I started taking down phone numbers and organized a walking group. Every week, at least four of the six of us managed to make it out of the house with our babies in tow. We walked at least a mile, and all agreed that the fresh air and exercise worked wonders. I found that walking in a group, rather than alone, gave me a real incentive to get moving.
