Let's talk sports bras. I'm in the market for a new one. I'm pretty sure what I look for in a sports bra is different than what most other people look for. See, I don't have tata's that need to be tamed or a handful that needs to be contained (for those that don't know those are name brands). This may be TMI for some but I barely have any boobs. In fact, if it wasn't for my lovely fibrocystic disease I'd probably have less. That brings me to my problem. I need a sports bra that is padded. You laugh, but they're not easy to find. They're necessary too. Otherwise, I look like a man. They just make you flat as a pancake if you don't have much to work with & there aren't pads. I have a couple of Reebok bras which are ok but they give you the whole uniboob look. Not pretty. Although, uniboob is better than no boob. I have a couple of that brand that starts with an M that I can't remember right at the moment. I really liked them. I liked the way they fit & I was lucky enough to find some at TJ Maxx for $12.  That's the one good thing about not needing a sports bra for all of the regular reasons, I can find them pretty cheap. The problem with those bras is that the padding is removable. I don't really get that. If you need the pads you're not going to remove them. I didn't think it was a big deal but after they've been washed a lot the pads start to come out during the wash cycle. How this happens is a mystery. Kinda like the whole one sock always disappearing. There's a very tiny spot to put them in & out. It's HARD to get them back in that spot & arranged correctly. I need a bra that has pads that aren't removable. I really don't think this is too much to ask. I plan to look online but I thought I'd ask for suggestions here. Maybe it will save some time. Oh & I'd rather not pay $50 for one.

My workouts for the week:
Sunday - 4 mile run. I got a little faster
Monday - Weight workout while watching the finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Please Lord tell me the rumors are just rumors & Faye WILL NOT be part of the cast next season.
Tuesday - Yoglates
Wednesday - 3.5 mile run. I got a little faster. I had 1 mile that was 10:39!
Thursday - Yoglates

Good Friday is a holiday for my company for the first time ever! I'm very excited!! We have big plans - At some point I have to run 3.5 miles. I have a coupon for Dick's & JCP so I plan to use those. I don't like to let coupons go to waste! We'll have lunch & then there's the little thing about picking up 40 lbs of chicken. More on that later.

Good thing I've kept up with my workouts this week because  my eating has been a little sketch. I had 2 Groupons or Living Socials or whatever that are expiring this week so we had to use them. We had Mexican Tuesday night & it was DELICIOUS!! Not low calorie but good. Tonight we're going to Capital City Grill.



  1. You might try Athletica...a little pricey but good.

    Just remember that having big ta ta's sounds like a great thing, but sooner or later they are going to be sitting on your stomach.


  2. I have no boobs at all, either. Seriously. I have never had a padded sports bra (but will look for one now!) but I like the Champion brand that they have at Target for like $15. They come in tons of different colors and they fit so well. They wash well, too, and I think they don't really "squash" me down, but they do keep things in place. I love all the bright different colors. You could try one for cheap anyway! :)

  3. This is such a funny post, Traci, lol. anyway, I used Soma bras and they are very comfortable but I am not sure how their sports bra are and if they have them....Christine
