A Look Inside My Gym Bag…and My Calendar

November 6, 2013

Holy moly– do you realize that Thanksgiving is only about 3 weeks away!? Excuse me while I go do a happy dance…

Ok…I’m back.

As I was packing up for the day this morning, I had a proud moment. I have completely simplified my change-in-the-car-on-the-way-to-the-gym-routine. It’s awesome. I drive a Honda Element and the door panels come up to about my shoulders when I’m sitting in the driver’s seat,  so I am fully able to change pants without anyone in traffic knowing. << score! Also, my back seat is pretty large so I can easily sit in the floor and change into my workout top totally out of view. <<score again. I could change at the gym (duh!) but I’m usually in such a hurry leaving one job and hurrying off to the next that it’s just easier to drive and change pants at the same time (I love multitasking and being on time!).

All I really pack anymore is my outfit, training shoes, deodorant, Moroccan oil (FL humidity does some crazy things to my hair!), a wrist wrap for lifting heavy stuff, chapstick, gum, hand sanitizer, and wrinkle release spray (this stuff is magic!). I also didn’t have them in this picture, but I always pack my Burt’s Bees Face Towlettes for post-workout sweat wipe-off as well. Keepin’ it easy!

gym bag: inside!

The outfit: lululemon Scoopneck Tank and lululemon Wunder Under crops

inside my gym bag: stuff

1: Inov-8 F-Lite 185 training shoes: I got a great deal on these on The Clymb, but you can order/purchase them from a number of athletic shoe stores

2: Travel-size hand sanitizer

3: Downey Wrinkle Releaser- does just what its name implies.

4: Dove deodorant– gets the job done and I love the “powder” smell.

5: Moroccan Argan Oil– this stuff smells  great, works wonders on frizzy hair, and magically hides split ends

6: Gold’s Gym Wrist Wrap (sold as a pair)– since I’ve had quite a bit of pain throughout the year from an injury, I pretty much always use these to provide some stabilization and protection to my right wrist when I work out

7: The CVS version of Burt’s Bees chapstick- it’s about 1/2 the price of the brand name stuff

8: Extra Peppermint Gum- I buy mine bulk at Costco

I love my workout bag, too. I bought it about 6 years ago at lululemon because it hold a weekend’s worth of stuff plus has special straps for a yoga mat.  gym bag

I’m totally lusting after this bag which is currently on lululemon’s website:

The Happy Hour Hatha Bag
