What is the best stomach exercise for a Busy Mum?

I joined my first gym when I was about 19 years old…
I remember coming back from a January mountain bike ride absolutely freezing cold…
I thought instead it would be more comfortable to sit on a bike in a gym and be distracted by MTV videos…
One of the gyms we went to increased our focus on being in visual shape and being a very shy 19 year old I would feel better being ripped and toned…

Yes there are exercises classes called legs, bums and tums, it means you are working those areas, to see results you have to combine it with a sound eating plan.
It can sound a bit that we are focussing on our appearance too much, but when we lower body fat, our health improves…
