I'm cleaning out my drafts while the kids sleep- It must have been the shame that prevented me from posting this one. Needless to say, I haven't been jogging since.
I'm not one of the lucky few who looses baby weight (or any weight) easily. For me it lingers... for... like... ever.
Recently, my dad and I decided it was time to start jogging again. It'd been about 3 years since we had sweated it out on our favourite fire trail. So i dug out my sneakers and we set off.
It was not quite like it used to be. I remember an easy run, a little bit of chatting, tiny bit of racing and me always winning. Not this time Gadget. I almost died. Dad, 3 years on - still strides it out with the best of them.
As I was choking on the fat that surrounds my throat I had a moment of intense clarity. I realised that maternity bras to not offer adequate support to loaded milk jugs and that post baby bums require their own supportive device.
