I recently wrote that I had promised myself I would wash my face, floss, do my knee physio exercises and my pelvic floors every night.
I’m not doing very well.
I also lasted exactly 7 days of dry January. And 1 day of the 30 day crunch challenge.
It was all a bit much.
But my friend Laura recommended this great app that helps you do your pelvic floor exercises. I love it! It’s called Squeezy and it’s made by the NHS. You get an alarm three times a day and it times your “squeezes”.
A lot of the time I’m in the middle of something but I do it normally at least once a day, often more.
It’s like a fun game!
Before I was preggo I never did my pelvic floors..I saw Samantha talk about it once on Sex and the City and thought oh ok it’s for older ladies. And never thought about it again.
When I was pregnant I read I should be doing them every day but blah blah blah I couldn’t be bothered. Occasionally I’d run for a bus and have a little accident (the truth of pregnancy) and thought oh yeah I should do that. And then didn’t.
Then I pushed a baby out and had an episiotomy and had to be all stitched up and now I can’t hold in my wee for long..I CANNOT run for a bus or jump on a trampoline (these statements are evidence based).
It’s time to get serious.
There’s no point in telling pregnant ladies to do their exercises cos it’s too boring..they won’t do it.
They can just get this fun app instead when their baby’s one like me.
