I have recently narrowed down the necessary items for my gym bag. One of these items you may not suspect to be in here but I have loved the change!
When I first starting going to the gym, I had a lot of free time. Now that life has gotten busy, I have had to streamline my habits so that I can get the most benefit in the least amount of time. For example: bringing my gym bag into work so I can change after I get off and head straight to the gym. Anything I can do while multitasking is a huge help.
Taking my health more seriously this year has been a whirlwind. I have tried to figure out what I need to do to help the outside and the inside. It takes time to analyze what you need to help your body function. To help my body function better and my time at the gym the most beneficial I have narrowed my list to these 6 simple items.
What’s in my gym bag:
A water bottle: Water is so important before, during, and after a workout. I like to have a cute water bottle to make me excited to drink my water. Silly but effective.
Protein: I ALWAYS have a blender bottle and protein ready to go after my workout to refuel my body and allow it to recover in the most effective way.
Hat: Sometimes when you leave the gym, your hair is not so cute. Sometimes you walk into the gym and your hair is not so cute to begin with, on goes that hat.
Facial Spray: I have a natural tea tree oil spray for my face after I workout. This kills any of the bacteria that is on there from sweating and touching the equipment.
Gum: After a workout and a protein shake, I need a good flavor in my mouth. Gum is the easiest way!
Supplements: I have added some supplements to my routine that have helped with my sleep, digestion, and overall balance. Among these supplements have been THIS probiotic. It disintegrates in your mouth and can be taken anytime during the day. I have these in my gym bag because I forget to take them in the morning. The Olly Nutrition Quick Melt probiotic stick helps with balancing your digestion, clearer skin, and adding needed nutrients to have balance. THIS probiotic has 10 billion live cultures to help you get healthier. Best part: it has no added sugars, no artificial colors, and are also vegan!
