This One Thing Doesn’t Hold Me Back

There are few things that I let get in my way when it comes to working out. If I sign up for a class, I wake up and I get my butt in the studio doors. Rarely do I go more than 2 days without a good sweat session. However, there are many days when I don’t feel like it.

Now, those days often come after a rough night’s sleep. Don’t let my smile fool you… We had a rough night before I took this shot. However, I put on my workout clothes and went to the gym because I hoped it would make me feel better. It did.Exercising

Before sleepless nights, those days where I wouldn’t want to exercise would often come during my period. In a recent survey of 500 U.S. women ages 13-24, 75% admitted they frequently decided not to play a sport or exercise specifically if they were on their period. I know I’m a little older than this survey but I can’t remember ever feeling this way in High School or College.

I haven’t had mine since last March which is so weird to think about. This is because I am still breastfeeding. Once I start weaning Tommy off of breast milk it will return. I did however have to wear pads for weeks after his birth and panty liners when I began exercising again. It was not something I enjoyed doing, but I didn’t let it keep me from exercising. I still remember that first workout like it was yesterday. I had never experienced such an endorphin high after just 20 minutes on an elliptical.

I love that the body shape panty liners are designed to twist and turn with your body. They are thin with a super absorbent core to lock fluid away. They also are made with an OdorShield® technology to neutralize odors before they start.

My workouts started as long walks with Tommy in the stroller and graduated up to running, spinning and strength training. I was nervous about the pads and liners being noticeable in tight workout bottoms, but they weren’t!
