In the 16 days since I started back at Planet Fitness, I have only missed 2 days. Yesterday was one of them. I am realizing that it is important for me to give my body a day of rest after breaking down tissue. What is equally as important is wearing the right workout clothes. A valuable lesson was learned today…
After working on strength training, I hopped on a treadmill to get in my cardio workout. Shortly after starting I noticed a sharp pain underneath my breast. I tried the ol’ discreet wiggle adjustment hoping that perhaps things just got twisted up while using the strength training equipment, that seemed to do the trick for the remainder of my workout. As I got into my car and started to drive home, the uncomfortable, stabbing pain returned with a vengeance. I was trying to manuever my vehicle through traffic and trying to prevent my possible death by undergarment at the same time. Anyone that owns a underwire bra, knows and understands betrayal. One moment you are happy and comfortable and the next you find yourself doing Michael Jackson’s moonwalk and other dance moves to avoid piercing your flesh. When that metal wire snaps in half, it feels at though you have been taken hostage at knife point. With that being said, for your own safety, and perhaps the safety of others, I recommend wearing a sports bra to the gym or wherever you are working out.

Every woman has had to deal with ‘death by undergarment’ at one point or another. 🤣😂
