I will admit, I have never been very big on going to the gym. After my first daughter was born, I had to lose about 30 pounds. At the time, my best friend was going to the gym almost every day. She encouraged me to tag along with her and within 3 months, I had lost all of my baby weight. That was the last time I entered a gym until about 6 months ago. My daughter is getting married and I need to lose a whopping 80 pounds. I knew I could not do that with dieting alone.
Working Out Is Fun! LBL? Not So Much!
I joined a gym and went once or twice a week. I felt like a fish out of water and had no idea what I was doing. I happened to connect with a woman who is a professional bodybuilder. I told her my goals and she helped me create a workout that was the perfect beginner gym workout for women and would get me results. On the days I was not at the gym, I would find activities I could join in with the family that would get me moving. Fast forward 3 months, and I have been going to the gym 5-6 days a week and I have lost 14 pounds and 10 inches!
The Uninvited Guest At The Gym
I was so excited about working out. You know, finally getting that weight off I have been carrying around for so many years. And then “IT” started to show up at the gym. Yep..my LBL. As soon as I got a moderate pace on the treadmill, I would get the urge to pee. And, yes, I have even leaked a little. Or, Picture this…you are at the park with your kids. Everyone is playing freeze tag and having a great time. And then it happens…you get that sudden urge to pee. You even leaked a little and there is no restroom in sight. Ugh! Now what? Well, I think I found my new BFF when it comes to LBL! The Tena® product line from CVS and CVS.com.
Bye Bye Light Bladder Leakage Worries!
For the past 10 years or so I have suffered from Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). Trust, me, it is no fun! But the Tena pads and Overnight Underwear are my secret weapon in fighting LBL. But it is a secret too good to keep to myself! With Tena, I can actually go to the gym and have the confidence to push through my workout. With the Tena incontinence products for women, I get to live life on my terms. I don’t have to make compromises due to my LBL.
Tena gives me protection for the Unexpected Leak™ and they are as comfortable as they are effective. And gone are the days I have to miss out on an important moment or experience because my LBL had me searching for the closet restroom! What do I love more than how Tena keeps me dry? Saving money on the Tena products from CVS and CVS.com with rebates from Ibotta! Currently, you can get $2 cash back on Pads/Liners/Underwear and $4 back on Overnight Underwear. Now that’s awesome!
Free Workout Printable
I know how intimidating it can be to start a fitness routine. I am going to be 54 this year and it has been more than 25 years since I have regularly worked out. With the help of my bodybuilder buddy and her beginner workout for women, I am doing great! I am so proud of myself! And the best part is this routine is not complicated nor does it take forever. I start out warming up on a cardio machine (the treadmill is my go-to machine) for 15 minutes. From there, I do strength training for about 30 minutes and then do 15 minutes on the treadmill again.
