It started with a sneeze, actually three sneezes. If I sneeze three times in a row, I'll pee. Everytime.
Lucky for me, I don't typically sneeze three times in a row. What I did find, however, is that certain yoga poses will make me pee a little. Just a little, but enough that it made me uncomfortable. Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* Briefs for Women, makes it possible to downward dog without having to dash to the bathroom.
It's hard for me to phantom that I'm young enough to have a leaky bladder, but according to a survey by the National Association for Continence (NAFC), 1 in 4 women over 18 leak urine while women ages 30 to 70 have lost bladder control at some time.
Many women, like myself, don't see an occasional accident as a problem until it's too late. Embarrassment is another reason for skipping the doctor for proper diagnosis, but incontinence is slowly becoming less of a taboo subject.
While I'm adjusting to this new addition to my work out gear, I find that buying Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* from Walmart.com is less stressful then adding them to my weekly shopping list. I can go online, place an order and pick them up in the store already paid and ready to go.
I don't feel like I'm over forty, but my body likes to remind me. So, as I work on strengthing my body and my pelvic wall, Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* Briefs for Women, gives me the confidence I need to get through my workouts. With three sizes and two colors, beige and black, these lower rise, thin briefs keep up with an active lifestyle and no one will ever know what you're wearing.
To celebrate, I'm gifting myself with a Pamper Yourself Basket.
I'm not a morning person so I started working out before bed. When I finish my workout, I like to pamper myself. I'll light some candles, take a hot shower, and slather on my favorite lotion before slipping into bed.
If I have to workout in the morning or midday, I use my favorite smelling dry shampoo to get me out of the house on time.
Cutting back on sweets and increasing activity are just two ways to stay on the right track. Remembering to find quiet time for myself is just as important. Treating myself to a new water bottle, a magazine, and my favorite granola bar is the perfect way to pamper myself without the guilt.
