Once I get in to a routine, I can't stop. If I stop, I know that I won't start again. I'm a creature of habit I guess. I can't let anything stop my gym routine because I know it's so important for my health. I have different bags packed for different things, and I always have one packed for the gym. If I suddenly get an open spot in my schedule, I want to be ready to go or to stop in while I'm out and about. Here are my gym bag essentials that I always have with me so I'm prepared.
Gym Bag Essentials
I almost always have my hair down, so I always have hair ties or clips to keep my hair back. I always have a bunch of those because we all know how they walk off and get lost.
I use this before and after working out. Even though I come home to grab a shower, I still have to smell myself on the way home!
U By Kotex
Remember when I said that I have to stick with my routine? I can't take a few days off for my period. I don't want embarrassing leaks, so that's why I always use U By Kotex. Right now, you can get 15% off U by Kotex at Target with this Cartwheel offer.
I always keep a water bottle in my bag, even if I already have one for the day.
With my curly hair, I don't like to take a shower at the gym. I come home to get a shower, but there are some times that I have to stop at the store after the gym. I use dry shampoo to absorb some of the sweat.
Again, to freshen up a little bit. I have wipes for my face, and I also use SweetSpot Labs on the go wipes. SweetSpot Labs also has a 15% off Cartwheel at Target offer right now too.
