So good running shoes are a given when you are running, walking, working out, etc. If you can't afford expensive shoes, make sure you look up some of those good Dr. Scholl's products for heel and arch support. You can customize your shoes with the support you need and easily replace them when it wears out. Here are some places to get good shoes at good prices:
I have also recently learned that it's REALLY important to have a good sports bra. Remember that I have never consistently worked out in my life. Before kids I never felt the need. I was never an athlete and I never liked the gym. I was thin and could eat what I wanted, end of story. Now it's a totally new experience for me.
Sports bras were never a concern for me. I used to wear them just because they were easy but now they are necessary for working out. Plus it turns out that when you gain weight, you can gain bust too. Instead of a nice 36C that I was for years, I'm now a 40DD. Yes, that's right! It's insane. I tried buying a sport's bra at target and the XXL barely fit and had no support.
What do you do in this situation? Well I called my athletic sister-in-law that has the same issue. She told me to go to a store to have a fitting done. She also suggested a sport's bra with underwire and I didn't even know they made those. I found a Bali outlet at Tanger Outlets. A woman measured and fitted me and I found a Champion underwire sports bra that actually fits and holds the girls in place. It's amazing! Unless you have experienced this, you have no idea how good it feels! It was also 40% off. Plus they gave me an extra 20% off when I proved that my birthday is this week. It was $48 and I got it for $20!
My ultimate goal as a lose weight and hopefully I'll lose bust. I would love to get back down to my original size….we shall see.
