Make working out a priority In Mom World, the pecking order usually goes something like this: Kids, husband, grandparents, dog, neighbors, dry cleaner, Mom. That has to change if you really want to work on your physique. "You've got to take time for YOU without feeling bad about it," insists Madeline Glasser, 25, mom to 12-month-old Emmalyne and a blogger at FoodFitnessandFamilyblog.com. Think about it like this: You're not taking time away from your little one; you're setting a healthy example for her to follow, now and when she's an adult. Prioritizing herself helped Glasser blast away the 32 pounds she gained during her pregnancy. She joined a gym with child care, takes a boot camp class, lifts weights, runs, and walks her baby and dogs nearly every day. Can't make it to the gym? "Throw in a DVD during nap time," says Glasser.
