What’s in my Gym Bag

Today I’m sharing what I typically carry in my gym bag in case you’re new to a gym and want to be prepared! This affordable gym bag is a great size to keep all that I need in it, without leaving too much room for me to carry the kitchen sink. It’s not structured, so if that will bother you then I also love this one on sale! My favorite protein bar is this one in vanilla creme. I typically eat this in the morning after coffee, but I like to keep one in my bag in case I didn’t eat enough to get me through my workout.

My favorite gym accessory are these wireless headphones. You don’t know the struggle of regular headphones until you’re trying to do burpees with your phone tucked into your sports bra. With wireless headphones, I can sit my phone in my bag and keep on keeping on without getting tangled up in a cord. If you’re still not sure about investing in wireless headphones, I recommend the Flip Belt to store your phone in instead of an arm band. Personally I think arm bands are uncomfortable, especially when you’re working out your arms #swole. I still use the flip belt when I go for a run because it stores my phone and keys on me. I could be a lot better about foam rolling, but I usually just do it during my warm up for leg day.

I recently got this canteen from Swoozies and I’ve been loving it! It’s has definitely helped me drink more water throughout the day because it keeps your drink cold for hours. Inside a makeup pouch I keep extra bobby pins and hair ties because it’s the worst when your hair tie breaks on you mid-workout or you forget one! I also keep a elastic headband in case my baby hairs start acting up. Along with hand sanitizer, it’s always a good idea to bring along deodorant and face wipes to freshen up afterward for the days you aren’t going straight home. Some other items not pictured that I like to bring with me to the gym include a small hand towel and a heart rate monitor.


Thanks for reading! Is there anything I’m missing in my gym bag?? Let me know in the comments below.

  • I haven’t stopped listening to Taylor Swift since the concert on Friday. It was seriously the best concert I’ve ever been to! Sorry BSB and Britney 🤷🏼‍♀️ If she’s coming to your city I can’t recommend #reputationtour enough! Have you been yet??

A big thank you to @joulesclothing for gifting me this gorgeous dress.

Click the link in my bio to shop this look. My top is only $16 and I’m wearing Valentino dupes🍓Happy Friday friends!  #liketkit http://liketk.it/2wUX5 @liketoknow.it
  • I challenge you to buy something way out of your comfort zone every now and then because you never know what may surprise you! This olive cropped jumpsuit was my surprise this week. Tim was even a fan and I thought he would hate it! He described it as “elegant but bossy” 🤣 Like this photo if you think he should narrate my next try on haul. Also, I have a lot of new faces around here so I just wanted to say a quick hello to my new friends👋🏼💕.

Coming to my YouTube channel this Sunday is an @oldnavy try on haul. I found so many cute basics for fall that are a heck of a lot better deal than the nsale 😜. I normally size down in Old Navy but I wanted the top to fold over the not so cute waistband.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.

My heels are a Valentino dupe from @amazonfashion and look just like the real deal! I linked the exact outfit on the shop page of my blog.

  • Is it possible to be impulsive but also an over analyzer? Because I feel like I am somehow! If I finally decide I need/want something, it has to get done right away. If my mind is on a project, I won’t take a break to eat until it’s done. If I’m on a health kick it’s all or nothing. If I’m craving cookies, I will slip on my flip flops and head to the store.

Last week I started shopping for a new blog design, and this weekend I made it happen! I’ve sat at my desk since 10am yesterday tweaking every little detail, and it was so worth the task. Take a peek at the new site and let me know what you think! The features look best on a desktop, but it is mobile friendly, too.
