It is always when you are trying to do something isn't it.lol Sorry for your predicament. Mine do the same thing and I have a 1yr old, a 2yr old and a 4yr old.lol Something I do that works for me is to do it while they are eating breakfast. They can see me working out in the living room and they have a good time rooting me on. Also if you do any aerobics with any of the shows on tv your 3yr old might have fun doing it with you. Mine like try out what i'm doing. If that doesn't work the weather will be warming in a few months you could run her ragged at the park and then she will be to worn out to ask for your attention.lol Good luck!!!

Try working out when she's asleep like early am or late at night or nap time.

You know this is the time where you can turn the TV on and use it as a babysitter if you allow a little tv watching and if she even watches tv. Or do it while she's napping. Good Luck

Does she like coloring? I usually give my boys dry erase markers and let them draw on their board, it keeps them busy while I exercise. Also, maybe you could find an exercise DVD that the two of you could do together, she would probably like that
