What’s in My Gym Bag

Gym Collage

A key factor in getting to the gym is packing my gym bag the night before. Every night I make sure to re-pack it with a new outfit, my gym shoes, and all my other essentials. It takes 5 minutes to do and in the morning I just have to grab the bag as I walk out the door to work.


So what’s in my bag?

  1. My Under Armour thin-silated jogger jacket. It’s thin enough for my warm up at the beginning of my workout and warm enough for when I walk out of the gym to my car.
  2. Workout Leggings – These shown are from Fabletics. I love their gear. Stylish and affordable.
  3. Shirt – Usually I have a t-shirt I thrown in. My favorite t-shirt from last week was my “The Struggle is Real #Pray”. It was an attention getter.
  4. Sports Bra – Not Shown but a huge necessity.
  5. Belkin iphone workout band – Can’t run without it!
  6. Ear Buds
  7. Water Bottle
  8. Essential Items always packed are – Hair brushes, hair ties & bands, deodorant, feminine products, extra socks.

Let’s not forget the Gym bag itself! How about this print? Don’t you just love it! It’s a Thirty-One bag that I am so sad to say is no longer available. I suppose it was an exclusive offer but I really wish they would sell these bags all the time. It’s the best bag I’ve ever used for the gym but it also gets use on quick weekend trips too.

Some of the features that I love about the bag are:

  • On on side of the bag there is a full pocket which I throw my keys, gloves, and phone in.
  • The opposite side has a towel/yoga mat carrier
  • It’s got a separate shoe pocket which is the best part. Lets be honest, who wants their stinky shoes in with their workout clothes?
  • Opposite side has a mesh Water Bottle pocket
  • Two medium mesh pockets Inside for all my lady items.
  • Bonus space inside of the bag to stuff anything you would ever need

High Five on Friday 1.23.15

Today I thought I would post some of my “Spring” wish list items with you all! When I was at the mall on MLK day I couldn’t believe that all of the stores have already started transitioning to their Spring lines. I mean, that’s okay if you live in a region where spring actually starts in Late Feb/March but here I Iowa us poor folks have to wait until sometimes May for a chance to wear these items. I suppose that’s why I will continue to invest in leggings!

  1. &  5. I am obsessed with these two skirts from a company called Lularoe. I hadn’t really heard of them until I started following Becky over at BYBMG. Number one is called the Cassie skirt and Number five is the Madison. I can not wait to get my hands on these! And I’m a bit obsessed with black and white right now…
  2. In the fall I purchased some super chic light tan booties that I wear quite often. I would really like a pair of black ones, they are on my list!
  3. I am in desperate need of updating my hair color. It’s been… 6 months. Literally I have three shades going on. My root color/natural hair, a section that is about 2 inches that is a warmer blonde, and then the ends of my hair are a light blonde. I’m a HOT mess. Usually when I ask for color they pair my with a “warm tone” blonde but I really want to try a “cooler” blonde. Nothing too light though.
  4. My poor coffee tumbler was left back in Delaware during our visit at Christmas. I seriously feel as if I’ve lost a piece of myself. It’s silly really, I got the tumbler for free at a College fair 4 years ago and it had the Community College Logo on it from some school in Wyoming but it became apart of my every day life. It was plastic so I could heat it up if need be. Well, I told my mom not to mail it because it would be silly when it was free to begin with. I am in the hunt for another cheapo coffee tumbler that I can throw in the microwave if need be. This one shown is Starbucks and was $19.95…. pssshh.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend ahead! I’ll be in my basement getting some painting done! Want to see what the hubs and I are working on? Visit this link.
