There are a few things that people don’t tell you that happen after you have a baby. The first of which is after you have children, you might no longer have the ability to be “leak-free”. That’s right, my girl friends and I often joke about this, but it is a real thing. Especially when you're working out!
Running, jumping and squatting can definitely result in a few mishaps but thankfully I have found Stayfree™ Ultra Thin pads (click for a coupon!). These Stayfree pads can be worn any time of the month for extra protection for incidents that might happen when you're being active. With their new technology that locks in liquids, you can have extra piece of mind no matter what you are doing. Now this is a good thing!
Another key thing to remember is that stretching before and after any physical activity is so important, especially as you get older. Our muscles are definitely not as flexible as our kids' so making sure your body is limber and actively warmed up prior to engaging in exercise is extra important. When I was younger I could do anything, but now stretching my muscles before and after activity is essential.
The final secret to staying in shape at any age is proper hydration. I never realized how important it was to your body to drink enough water. This is hard for me, as I do not really like the taste of plain water. However, I have found by leaving a container with flavor-infused water in the fridge has definitely helped me drink enough water throughout the day. Water flushes toxins, controls calorie intake, and hydrates your skin. All good reasons to drink eight glasses of water a day.
So there you have it, a few secrets to working out throughout your life Most of these are things that we already know but sometimes you need a helpful reminder. Be sure to have a look for these Stayfree™ Ultra Thin pads, they definitely give you the confidence you need to get moving!
