Transition #18:

Kegel exercises become a legitimate part of the fitness regimen.

The upside?

I’m doing them here:

trashbagswhile I pick out trash bags.

And here:


while I paint the stripes in the nursery.

And even here:


as I push Sylvie on the swing.

And you’d never know.

Added bonus: no need to shower or change or even stop what you’re doing.

I’ve heard there are other advantages, too. Wink. Wink. Ok, let’s not beat around the bush, it’s not peeing in your pants when you’re 50.

    You’re absolutely right! Now if only I’d remember to do what my ob/gyn dr. has been saying for years! Only problem is that my muscles don’t seem to obey me the way they used to, either!

      Yep. But I hate doing them to be honest. I hate it. UGH!

    As soon as I read your your first line, I subconsciously began flexing, lol!

      Ha! They actually go through me a little bit! It’s funny. I love exercising every other muscle those (that?)–not so much. My OB suggested doing them every time I have to wait for something. When I think about all the waiting I do –like waiting for my kids to find their shoes or get into the car, I don’t think I’d be able to even use tampons anymore if I did all those Kegels! HA!
