what to carry in your gym bag, packing a gym bag
Looking back on all my previous posts, I've never shared a ‘what's in my gym bag’ with you all! These types of posts (purses & gym bags) are some of my favorites to read from other bloggers because, well, I'm nosy and want to know if there should be anything my gym bag that might be missing!


If the week allows for it, I'll usually go to the gym on my lunch break, and then to 7-Eleven to pick up some hydration like LIFEWTR. I know that it's not always an option for many folks, but my gym happens to be in my building so that eliminates a lot of time for getting to and from the gym. I take about 45 minutes total for the workout & that leaves me with 15 minutes (give or take) to get back to my desk and eat lunch!
what to carry in your gym bag, packing a gym bag

Here's a peek into my gym bag:



To Quench my Thirst and Refresh



LIFEWTR: If you know me, then you know I love color. If the bottle that my water comes in is colorful and fun, then it makes me more excited to drink it. Please tell me I'm not alone here. When LIFEWTR came out with their artist-created bottle designs, I stopped into 7-Eleven to scoop some up. We probably have a 7-Eleven on every other corner here in the city, so if there is ever a day when I need an extra boost of hydration before or after a workout, I can grab something quickly.




Makes Me Presentable



Dry Shampoo & Deodorant: 45 minutes doesn't give you a ton of time to refresh, so I rely heavily on my dry shampoo since I don't wash my hair until I get home. I also switched to the aluminum-free deodorant which I feel really good about using. I actually have two detangling brushes - one I keep in my purse and one that I keep in my gym bag - these are my absolute favorites!


I always carry a bit of makeup with me to touch-up from the class - nothing too fussy, just my cc cream, pressed powder & blush. There's always a chance I have an event after work, so I like having my makeup with me in case I need to touch up for that and the earthy palette I used is perfect for that!


Don't forget clothes



I can't tell you how many times I've forgotten to pack a sports bra for a workout, so now I always keep an extra one with me in my bag. I also recently picked up these pretty pink sneakers that are light enough for workouts but are my favorite to wear when I'm running errands during the weekend. Of course keeping it all together is key, and I've been using my bag for the last few years. It's taken a beating so it might be time for an upgrade to the one pictured.




My favorite is seeing the fun LIFEWTR bottle during my spin class, and the odds of me drinking the entire thing during my workout are pretty good. Drinking one during the entire work day is another story. Sometimes I find myself needing an extra spark of creativity - especially if I'm trying to create a new marketing piece, so it's nice to look at the bottle and see an artist's inspiration!

  17. That's awesome that you workout during your lunch break, girl! It beats going after work, which I know can sometimes be easy to skip because you're so tired from the long day and plus, it usually gets very crowded! I love the designs on the water bottle, how fun!? It's such a great way to entice people to choose a healthier beverage because no, you're not alone in wanting to drink out of a cute and colorful bottle, many do, including me! Plus, they make for really pretty photo props, haha! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead. Ps: I LOVE the pear details on your sweater!

  22. Lunch time workouts are where it's at! Best way to squeeze in a workout, and then have it complete when the work day is finished. And I've been loving that water lately, the bottles are so fun and colorful <3

  23. Lunch time workouts are great. I have never had LifeWTR, I will have to pick some up today at lunch. I'm sitting here laughing at the 7-Eleven comment because I walked past two this morning on my way into my office. They are everywhere. LOL.

  24. I'm a lunchtime workout girl, too! Although, you have it way easier since the gym is right in your building. :) These water bottles are so cute!

  26. How convenient that your gym is in your building!! I can be home for lunch in about 8 minutes so I go home and walk or do a workout video some days. It's amazing how much more refreshed I feel for the afternoon when I do!

  27. I love your picks especially that workout bag. I recently quit the gym and have been working out at home mostly or going to a barre class here and there on the weekend but one of my favorite barre studios is opening up within a 10 min drive from work at the end of the summer so I might try to start making lunch workouts a thing.

  29. How nice that the gym is close enough for you to go to during lunch! That's awesome. My gym bag is full of similar things, but bluetooth headphones are a must have for me. They're the best!

  30. These are great additions. Since I travel a few miles to the gym I do not pack extra clothes. I do make sure I have my ipad, ear buds and a drink though! #client

  34. I wish I could work out on my lunches when I am at the office. I am a sweater and there is no way I could get in a decent workout and shower and get back to my office in time. I got one of those waters with my lunch at a restaurant last week and thought they were pretty cool! Hope you have a great weekend!

  35. A sports bra is always what I forget! A friend of mine gets to go work out on her lunch. I wish I could do that!

  36. Fun to see what you pack! My hubby goes to the gym at lunch, but I can't seem to make that happen. I am impressed you do!

  39. A good quality sports bra is a must!! Good idea on the dry shampoo...didn't think of that one. The LIFEWATR looks interesting and good to know you can easily get them at a 7 eleven. I'll definitely pick one up soon since all I drink during the day is tons of water and those bottles are nice and big. Have a lovely weekend!
