Ncurrieram keeping my wallet tightly shut for a few days. I am living on a budget as I am moving out of the city in a few months time. Absolutely no shopping for anything other than household stuff. So I dug out a large tote I used to use as an overnight bag. BTW here is a picture of the bag I wanted, but resisted.
Now, I prefer keeping my bags light and carry only the essentials. My handbag too holds only minimal things. The gym is just 5 minutes away from home and makes it easy to run back if I realllllly need anything.
I am not an exact fan of taking a shower in the gym. I get back home for the shower. I pack a second set of clothes( and my makeup bag) only on weekends, when I use the steam room. So my gym bag stays prettty light on most days. And when I get home, I put my dumbbells inside it thus keeping my workout stuff from straying about the house.
And no energy bars or post workout smoothies either. I cant eat right after workout.Plus I think smoothies are too dense and filling. No can do.The lemon juice works just fine for me; during workout, and after too.
Coming to what I pack, here is a list of what I stuff inside my gym bag( rather gym tote) :
- 2 pairs of socks
- 2 sets of hand towels
- 1 good deo
- Foldable hairbrush
- A one litre water bottle( filled with lemon juice w/o sugar)
- Mobile, keys and wallet
So yeah. That’s whats in it. Ill add some pictures of my actual bag shortly.
And here is my current bag:
