Quest for a Ta Ta Tamer

The other day I professed my desire to one day run a 5K..... I am horribly envious of those who find running to be a natural thing. I mentioned my feet and knees in my other blog, reasons I don't run....well, here's something else to consider....
I've heard from running folk that a good pair of shoes is the most important thing. I don't disagree. I am of the opinion that I will also need one kick-a$$ sports bra.

In earlier blogs, back when I was doing Jillian's "30 Day Shred" , I would put on 2 bras before each workout. This helped, but would chafe a tad, and were very uncomfortable. Let's not even talk about the fact that I looked ridiculous! No chance that I would ever step outside the confines of my living room in that get up!       ( Vanity strikes again)

Then, I heard a tale about the PERFECT sports bra, called the Ta-Ta Tamer from Lululemon...(apparently, it actually does what it says: TAMES THE TA-TA'S! My sister (who does run) has one and swears it's the most amazing bra ever.

I have searched high and low for one in my size. I've been to 2 of the stores in the city closest to me, I check online daily ( sometime two or 3 times).....I've even searched on Ebay, willing to pay more if I can just find it in my size.

I mean, if I were to try running , I'm sure I'd hurt myself.....possibly anyone near me, due to the uncontrollable bounce factor. This bra is readily available in smaller sizes.....but a chesty girl  like me needs it way more than skinny yoga master. ( sorry, little bit of thin-envy slipping out).

The search continues.........

Back to the Blog

It's been awhile, over a month since I even logged in. Not to say I haven't written anything, but I've been posting elsewhere. It's all been about my exercise journey and weightloss.....not all fit for viewing by the public. 

There's more to life than my recent lifestyle changes, I'm still working on trying to find a balance.

The school year is (finally) coming to an end. I'm really looking forward to not fighting with the teachers about my little square pegs ( kids) not fitting into their little round holes....oh wait, not true. Sihdney has yet ANOTHER OT assessment in mid-July, in preparation for Gr.1. 

I have a huge rant brewing inside me, after night #2 of obnoxious teens partying in the yard next door. To be fair, maybe some of them weren't obnoxious, but the loudest ones always wreck it for the group. It seems they were having a Bush Party....but instead of having it in the Bush, they had it in the comfort of the yard nextdoor. The fire was burning, the smell of melting plastic in the air. Seems they had a group of boys who thought yelling "WOO!!!!!!!!!" at the top of their lungs was a good way to attract girls ( doubtful). The empties are strewn all over their yard, but on the brightside, my fence isn't broken this time. 
Not sure where the adults were....perhaps they were sleeping, in the house, but with the noise, I don't see how. Today I am going to find out the after hours number for the Bylaw Officer.... yup, I'm going to be a funsucker.
