SparkFriends make the good times even better! Thanks to all 23 Sparkers who shared in my victory yesterday!
Back to my reliving of how I got active which will lead up to a blog on how I pack a gym bag. I wrote about keeping athletic shoes and socks in my trunk and getting out of the office, usually to a park, for lunch, and walking around the block or downtown for breaks. As I got more active one annoyance was how often my bra straps fell down off my shoulders onto my upper arms. I disliked walking while tugging on bra straps. When I was overweight my rounded shoulders made this problem significant. I didn't like wearing a sports bra all day and really didn't need that level of support for a walk, but I did need the straps to stay up. At one point I used shoe strings to tie up my bra straps behind my neck. That helped. But then I found a bra style that works great for me, Playtex Secrets style 4738. It provided almost as much support as a sports bra and the straps never fell down. While the bra that works for you may be different than the one that works for me, I encourage you to keep looking until you find just the right one. It really makes a difference.
