#ad #SeizeYourPoiseMoment, Poise, Poise thin pads, rite aid, sofab, light bladder leakage, working out, gym essentials, gym bag, For anyone that follows my blog regularly knows I have been on a weight loss journey since the beginning of this year. If you’re visiting my blog for the first time, welcome. ūüėČ My journey so far has been successful but I have had some down times as well. Just recently I joined a gym and was scared to death to go.

Not only was I¬†scared about how I looked when I went (thinking I was the largest person there), but I¬†was¬†also worried that I may have a little accident. When I say accident I mean leak a little urine. =( After having 5 kiddos and being overweight I experience light bladder leakage at times especially when I sneeze or strain and didn’t want that to happen while at the gym.

On my way to the gym one morning I stopped at my local Rite Aid store like I always do. I always pick up a quick protein snack and a snack for my little one that visits the gym daycare while I work out. On this particular day though I decided to pick up a couple of Poise products to give them a try. I picked up Poise Thin-Shape moderate absorbency pads and the Poise Impressa Sizing Kit. They were easily located on the back wall in the incontinence aisle near the pharmacy.

I was kind of excited about the Poise Thin-Shape pads because even though they are 40% thinner than their original pads they give great protection without the extra bulk! The last thing I want when working out at the gym is feeling like someone can see a bulge in the back of my pants. I also like that the Dry-Touch top layer moves moisture away from your body, increasing comfort and the Thin-flex design moves with your body.

To be honest I still feel a little scared when I walk into the gym but I do have¬†much more confidence than before. Now that I take Poise Thin-Shape pads with me¬† I don’t have to worry about anyone knowing that I just had a little leak and I can go on with my day and my exercise routine comfortably.

Here are my gym bag essentials that help me get through my workout:

  1. Sneakers– Having a great pair of sneakers that is comfortable can really help a lot. No one likes to have sore feet, especially when your working out.
  2. Deodorant– Just because your going to get your sweat on doesn’t mean you have to stink. ūüėČ
  3. Water Bottle– It is always a good idea to drink water especially when your working out to avoid dehydration.
  4. Athletic Socks– Now that good weather is here I have been wearing my flip-flops to the gym so I have to bring a pair of socks with me to change into.
  5. Wireless earbuds– Any earbuds or headphones will work just fine. Most gyms have TV’s attached to the equipment that you can plug into to listen to music or TV shows.
  6. Ipod or Music device– I have found that listening to music really helps me keep moving.
  7. Poise Thin Shape– Great to have at the gym especially when doing strenuous exercises!

    Glad you found a product that works for you and your bladder leakage!

  • Angie

    Luckily I have no bladder leakage issues, but I hear that people who have had kids do. I need to get back to the gym so bad!

  • Robin Rue

    This is a great list! Even though I don’t experience the light bladder leakage, I have friends that do, so I will recommend this product to them. They look so slim.

  • Ashleigh @Dash of Evans

    Congrats for joining a gym. I love to go to classes–otherwise I find myself getting stuck in a cardio rut. BodyPump is SO fun if they offer it there–its a weight lifting class with fun music. This checklist is great, I always forget something..usually headphones!
