This year is my year to get well. I’m making a concentrated effort to work towards wellness. This includes changes in my diet as well as to my routine. I never thought I’d be a person that looked forward to workouts at the gym, but I confess, I do.
While my gym workouts have suffered lately due to, well, life, I am making changes to my monthly planner to be sure to include them. If I put in my planner, I’m much more likely to follow through! If I just hope to get to the gym, chances are, it won’t happen. I have to be intentional in planning my days. How about you??
Keeping my gym bag packed and ready to go makes workout days easier. After washing my gym clothes, they are packed right into the bag. When I clean my protein shake bottle, I put it into the gym bag. I have two sets of personal care items so that one set can remain in my gym bag. It’s tough to get the gym and be ready to workout and find that I’ve forgotten my ear buds or worse, my shower items!
These are the 15 items that I always keep packed in my gym bag. Keeping that bag packed is key to keeping me on track with workouts and gym time!
15 Must Have Items for Your Gym Bag:
1. Workout clothes
2. Hand towel
3. Ear buds, music
4. Workout plan
5. Protein shake, blender bottle
6. Cottonelle® Fresh Care* Flushable Cleansing Cloths
7. Quality workout shoes
9. Shower items
12. Hair ties or headband
13. Quick snack
While our gym is cleaned regularly, I like to keep a pack of Cottonelle cloths with me to wipe down the equipment, especially the free weights, before I use them. We’ve had our share of illness this year and I’m doing what I can to stay well!
With extra time spent at the gym, I find that shopping time is somewhat limited. This is why I like to make a once per month trip to Sam’s Club. I can stock up on our groceries, and my workout products at the same time! A new (to me) feature of Sam’s Club is the pick-up option! How cool is this- you can place an order online and your order will be waiting for you when you arrive! As much as I love wandering the aisles of Sam’s Club, I will admit that the time savings is great using this option. Sam’s Club also offers a subscription service that is another time-saver! Check it out!
Stock up on Cottonelle cleansing cloths at your local Sam’s Club. They are located next to the paper towels and toilet tissue. This mega pack is a great value. There are 11 packages with 42 cloths in each pack. The packs are just the right size for portability! They fit perfectly into your gym bag so that you’re always prepared!
There are some bonus uses for those Cottonelle cleaning cloths! After my workouts, many times I have to run into the grocery store. Since we’re just coming out of cold and flu season, I’ve been in the habit of keeping a package of the cloths in my purse. A quick wipe-down of the cart handle means no germies for me to pick up. When I buy meat, I put it into a plastic baggie at the meat counter. Another cloth to clean my hands before touching anything else in my cart.
And, here are a few more uses of these versatile cleansing cloths! Spill a bit of food onto your clothing? Grab that Cottonelle cleaning cloth to spot clean it before the stain sets. The cloths make great makeup removers too. They are also wonderful to quickly clean hair color from the skin when getting rid of the gray. 😉
By keeping my gym bag packed and ready to go, I find that it motivates me to get my workout in. Anything we can do to make fitting exercise in during the day is a benefit! Anything that you’d add to my list?
