Disclosure: This post is brought to you in collaboration with JustGoGir l. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are totally my own!
There are many discussions we have here on this blog. We talk about marriage. Parenting. Sex. Money. Food. Fitness. There are few things that will make me blush or a topic I won't broach, especially when I know it is an issue that is common to many.
Like bladder control.
Heck yes, I said it. And don't start looking everywhere but the screen or humming the tune to your favorite television show to avoid the topic. Because, you friend. YOU, right there. I know you know what I'm talking about: the lack of bladder control that comes with time, age and birthing babies.
Can I get an amen?
I chatted about this topic a few years ago, sharing that most daily activities (jumping, sneezing, laughing, coughing, yelling, moving in general) was enough to cause an unwanted trickle. I can't help it. The two beautiful girls that I gave birth to did a number to the ol' bladder. And it seems that no amount of strength exercises seems to help it bounce back.
I think we can all agree that one of the worst Bladder Offenders is physical activity. Maybe it's the elliptical machine at the gym, the Zumba class you are taking or the serene run you just set out on. Whatever the activity, if there is even a minimal amount of jostling involved, you are most likely going to enter the Compromise Panty Zone. I am not too proud to admit that I encounter this problem at some point in a majority of my runs.
So what is a girl to do?
She gets JustGoGirl pads.
No, I am not ashamed to be sharing this on my blog. Why? Because I know 90% of you reading this secretly wants to know more because you suffer in silence too. And it's something very real to me. So I'm keeping it real.
I was given a chance to try out JustGoGirl incontinence pads, and I have to admit, they are pretty genius. Brooke Solis, the creator of JustGoGirl, shares that after pregnancy she couldn't do the high-impact work out she wanted because of athletic leaks. Her experience lead her to designing a pad for physically athletic women. Because if you've ever tried to go for a run or complete a fitness class in a regular pad, you know the embarrassment and discomfort that ensues.
The JustGoGirl pad is light, which is important for a body in motion. Despite being thin, it is absorbent (thank goodness!), accounting quickly for the trickles that may transpire. But most importantly is their shape: a teardrop contour that offers full coverage in the front (where you will, ahem, need it most), and tapers in the back. Why is this important? Because if you are wearing tight-fitting running shorts or yoga pants, the last thing you want showing (or dealing with) is a pad bulge.
Oh yes, I went there.
I can attest they are comfortable to wear and work like a charm. That's right friends: you can trampoline all the day long, and you'll be just fine.

So who is ready to confess?
What activities have you been hindered the most from doing, starting or trying because of athletic leaks?
