As a busy woman and a mom, exercise may seem like it doesn’t have a place in your schedule, but busy moms who do exercise know that it’s vitally important for personal self-care and sanity. Exercise gives you an opportunity to shut your mind off, be away from the children for a time, and work out some stress. Getting started on an exercise program may seem overwhelming or inexpensive, but the truth is that there are only a few key things you need to purchase to get started. You can run outdoors, purchase some workout DVDs, or use internet guides to help you if you don’t want to get a gym membership. One of the most important things you’ll want to purchase is a supportive running top and a sports bra if it doesn’t have a built in bra already. The Clymb offers discounts of up to 70% off retail so you’ll be able to find a quality top there. Here’s why you need the support for your breasts.
Stretching of Ligaments
Surprisingly, the sports bra was only recently invented in 1977, and despite its prevalence nowadays, many women aren’t wearing a sports bra with enough support. Breasts are made up of fatty tissue and are supported by skin and fragile ligaments. These ligaments don’t stretch, so high impact exercise or repetitive movements can cause the ligaments to loosen up. A good sports bra is a key investment to any workout wardrobe – running tops, aerobics outfits – because the last thing any woman wants is saggy breasts.
Back and Neck Support
Women who are more heavily endowed will especially benefit from a good running top and sports bra, because the weight of their breasts can cause upper back pain, neck and shoulder pain, and breast pain. Though the price tag for a good workout top and sports bra may be daunting, it’s important for lessening the risk of injury and pain during your workouts.
Even if you don’t experience pain while working out with inadequate support, small uncomfortable results can lead to more painful, damaging injuries along the way. Sports bras and supportive running tops fit tight enough that they typically don’t rub, even when your body is constantly moving. They are also made out of materials that soak up moisture, so your sweat doesn’t exacerbate the problem. A good bra and sports top will last quite a while, so invest in something that will last – and help you long-term.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
