I have a very good friend here in the real world, Jackie you know who you are. And she decided that we should tackle our expanding Mummy tummies seriously and dragged me along to a circuits class a couple of months ago. Actually, as she knows me well enough to know that I am a lazy bitch with a hankering for chocolate I am not sure she is a good friend to do this to me!!
It is hard, really hard. I sweat, complain (when I have the breath to do so) and leave on jellied legs. But, having a young, fit, not hard on the eye instructor with a nice bum makes it all a little bit of fun too. That, and the fact I can actually see a difference now. I can get into some of my size 12s, not without a bit of a muffin top you understand, but that used to be there in the 14s!!!
Anyway to the purpose of this post. To workout I wear leggings and a tee-shirt - normal workout wear. One session when he had us attempting suicide by plank - I do not exaggerate, I thought I might die, or at least need the attention of strapping paramedics - I got to thinking about my underwear, as you do.
My Mum always used to tell me to wear good knickers in case I was in an accident. Some that matched my bra ideally and to the gym I wear big undies - they help to hold my leggings up when I am
leaping about moving in pathetically slow motion. But I wondered what if my clothes had to be cut from my body at the gym???? I wear two sports bras to the gym, one just won't hold these puppies back so it is bad enough that I would look as if I had one massive rectangular breast and there is no way I can match the knickers to them. Fucking hell, it would look like Bridget Jones fat sister had been working out! Nobody, and I mean nobody should ever have to see these knickers. I keep them in a secret drawer at home and put them on/take them off in secret so there is no way the wider world of my gym class should be able to see them. And what if someone took a picture with the wide-angled lens on their mobile phone??? Oh God, it makes me sweat just thinking about it.
So, my question is, what knickers should one wear to the gym? A sexy cami-knicker would just give dreadful knicker lines as would anything made of lace. You would be forever pulling a g-string out of your arse - not attractive. What about a pair of tight silk boxers??
