What’s In My Gym Bag | Summer edition 

Hello, it’s me!

Yes, I am back, back again. Yeah she’s back, back again… OK I’m done.  But, YES, the past few months have been an absolute whirlwind for me with everything from moving, to deleting my IG (blog post on this coming in a few days), to starting  a full time Engineering job.  Sadly, blogging had to take a backseat for a bit.  For someone who is type A x 1000, it was extremely hard to say the least to let something I 1. love and 2. use to build a community essentially fall off the face of earth for a few months.  But, I 100% had to in order to get my roots set with everything new happening, find myself and where I need to be mentally, as well as physically, and reduce stress and anxiety.

To put it bluntly, yes I had to take time to do everything for myself.  Which is one hundred percent OK, and it is what I preach, so it would only make sense if I followed that, right?

Now, for what you came here for.

I promise some more #juicy posts will be coming in regularly, starting with an explanation on why I changed Instagrams, but today let’s start FUN.

What is in my gym bag? Summer edition.

Because, well, it’s summer! Also, be sure to scroll to the end for a special video 😉

Also, must clarify … my gym  bag is *also* my life bag, AKA it goes everywhere with me… to the point where I have permanent brush burn on my arms from where I rest the handles sometimes.  Slide into those DM’s for  proof.

Quest Beyond Cereal Bars

Quest Beyond Cereal bars

I like dez very much for a few reasons. One, they remind me of those cereal granola bars, but have protein, no sugar, and in my opinion taste better.  Two, with my digestive system issues, I don’t do so hot with protein only bars, so these are the perfect combo of protein, but not too much protein, still with fiber, and a few carbs mixed in there.

Three, they keep me full.  Which is honestly  so hard for me to say about bars.  Four, I found these guys  at 7-Eleven!  What? YEP.  I can grab them anywhere, it makes it so easy  to just pop into the corner 7-Eleven (participating locations), grab a Quest Beyond Cereal Bar with a super cheap coffee and head off to work.

Should  I add the bonus of not having to  go  into a supplement store and be overwhelmed by the store clerk chirping your ears off about some health benefit of something or another?

I cannot tell you the number  of times Quest Beyond Cereal Bars (& their 7-Eleven inhabitance– again, participating locations ) have saved my mornings.  Check ’em out, check ’em out.  Plus, you’re going to want a few for the super easy breakfast recipe at the end of this post 😉

Makeup remover wipes

I never paid much attention to skin care (face palm) until this summer.  However, taking your makeup off before a workout works wonders on the skin.

Nuts | current choice -> cashews

Jump rope

In case I get held up at work and miss a workout class.  Or, decide that it’s to darn gorgeous out to go workout inside.

No explanation needed.

Spare socks and sports bra

I don’t really have an explanation for this.  Sometimes I get an  urge to workout later in the day after I’ve already gone to CrossFit, and who wants to put  on a damp pair of socks or sports bra from that morning?

That’s all I got  for ya! I guess my bag is pretty boring,

plus I’m sure you don’t want to hear about the band-aids, Gas-x (emergencies ok), allergy medicine, and hair brush I have in there 😀

Now time for the extra good stuff:
