"I should be working out more than I am but it's a miracle if I get my teeth brushed by six in the evening let alone go to the gym. The amazing thing about motherhood is it makes things like going to the gym pleasurable. Normally it's a chore but to have half an hour on your own, even if it's surrounded by a lot of sweaty depressed-looking people, is great."
