Best workout for home

Working out in a gym has always been necessary for me but I find myself in a position now where I truly can't go because of my daughter (she's 8 months so places with daycare inside them won't take her) and the fact that my husband work opposite schedules since we have nobody who can help us with her.

I need to get myself back at a healthier weight and in better shape, so I'm looking for recommendations for home workout routines? I did p90x when it first came out and I wasn't in love with it, also I wasn't impressed with T25.

    What kind of equipment do you have? What kind are you willing to get?

    The YMCA will watch babies.

    Or when mine were babies I took them for walks in a stroller. Even after my third you would see me pushing them in a double stroller. Talk about a good workout! I also have a decent treadmill and get in workouts that way.

    I like Cathe DVDs for home workouts but you do need some space. You will need a step, band, mat and assorted weights.

    Anything long as you move. Fill two milk jugs with water and lift them. You can walk up steps if you have them. Toe touches. Anything really

    You can do a lot just with some basic equipment like a skipping rope and a few kettlebells. Skipping burns serious calories! Search google for body weight exercise routines if you don't have any equipment. There's also yoga and pilates. Lots of you tube channels - be fit, fitness blender, blogilates etc. I like 12 minute athlete - intense and short workouts which might be useful if you're fitting them in around caring for a baby.

    Or you could use your baby as a weight! :)

    Don't forget walking - especially if you're baby wearing or pushing a stroller it'll get you moving! Find some hills if you want a challenge.

    Fitness blender is my favorite exercise site. All videos are free. They have a terrific variety and if you want, you can choose to buy one of their schedules (very inexpensive), and they will hit all major areas. I'm currently halfway through their 4 week low impact program and I'm loving it.

    The Sworkit app is good for giving exercise routines. My favorite workout dvd is Physique 57.
