The Mysterious Racerback Solution

For those of you who have been following since the beginning, or those of you who were kind enough to go back and read from the start would have read one of my very first posts about “Jelly Moulds and Racerbacks”; today I reached another mini milestone that relates directly to that post.

My post described my inability to wear racer back sports bras without almost injuring myself to put them on (I swear a Rubik’s cube was easier). They were difficult to get on and just as difficult to get off. Now I’m nearly 10kg lighter and as I’ve committed to running, I thought I’d better give them another try. So many people had told me that they are excellent support for my girls.

I put on my bra like normal, then for some reason, I just reached back over my head and I could reach the clip. It was simple, it just clipped together. It appears that I was not flexible enough and had too much fat in the way to do this earlier. This was a huge win for me!! Not only did I get great support but I also jogged/walked 9km in 93 minutes. To top it off, all of this happened before 9 am. Twelve months ago, there is no way I would have been out of bed on a Saturday before 9, keeping in mind, 12 months ago I was carrying around nearly 20 more kilograms than I am now.

So with that said, I also need to mention that yesterday I gave one my friends Nae a run for her birthday. Before you all jump to conclusions, no I’m not making her run it, I offered to run in her honour for her birthday. So this morning’s 667 calories burnt goes to you Nae!! Happy Birthday! So this means I still need to smash out a workout for me – and that’s what I’m going to do this afternoon!

As the kilos are coming off, the confidence is building, I think I’m up for some progress shots shortly, so I’ll be sure to share them with you.

Also, as a teaser, I’ll be sharing a gardening concept that’s just been introduced to me that allows you to harvest only what you need, with only 20% of the room normally required with only half the effort. Stay tuned for my attempt at explaining Square Foot Gardening – it’s addictive!!
