Run Forest Run

I've got an confession to make. These last few god knows how many months - if I'm being really honest since late last year - i've been extremely slack with Weightwatchers. I haven't lost any weight but I haven't really gained anything either. I'm losing two pounds and gaining two pounds week in week out. I seem to be extremely good eating wise during the week and then throw caution to the wind at the weekend. Enough is enough. I've got far too many pretty clothes in my wardrobe taunting me that I can't fit into - still with the tags on sob - and I need to take action. I've decided exercise is key. That way it won't matter if I have the odd burger slip up - life is too short - as hopefully i'll be counteracting it with getting sweaty and toned whilst running a few times a week. I've set myself a target of running a 5k by November eeeek! So when I was offered the chance to review a Panache sports bra, it came at just the right time.

I must admit I had my doubts when it arrived as it looked huge - I'm not very well blessed in that department. But as soon as I put it on, it fitted like a glove and I felt very secure with the three hooks at the back. There's no danger of me knocking myself out but there is a chance of me feeling very uncomfortable in a normal bra. This hardly felt like it was on my body and I didn't get a sore chest like I usually do when I try any form of exercise. I found the bra straps very comfortable with the padding and had no dreaded digging in.

The bra goes all the way up to a H in a wide range of colours including black, cranberry and grey. The cranberry one is such a gorgeous colour. Who says something can't be practical and stylish?

The lovely people at Brit Bloggers were also kind enough to send me a little running pack to help me conquer the paths. The pedometer is such a great little tool and it helps to spur me on as I think just 100 more steps... The clip on mp3 player came in very handy and helps to motivate me along the way. It's a lot easier to forget the pain I'm in when the Backstreet Boys are blasting in my ear!

Have you ever tried a Panache Sports Bra before?


  1. Oh wow, this running pack looks awesome! I love the sound of the sports bra but I have a teeny rack so they don't move much anyway haha.
