What’s In My Gym Bag

Gym Bag Essentials | Get the most out of your workout by having everything you need in your gym bag. Here's what I keep in my gym bag to have the best workouts!

Good morning! I think I start out all of my posts this way, but I’m absolutely stoked for today’s post. It’s been on my list of posts to write for a good long while, but I haven’t felt exactly ready to share what’s in my gym bag. Now, my bag is complete, and I’ve figured out exactly what I need to have amazing workouts and avoid that “oh shoot how did I forget that” moment.

If you are a gym goer and a have a gym bag, I think you understand what I mean by that one. It takes awhile to narrow down what you like and don’t like to keep in your bag. From equipment to food, let’s dive right in to what I’m lugging 20 minutes campus on a daily basis that make my workouts so much better.

Quick & Easy Daily Makeup

Quick & easy daily makeup perfect for college students, post-gym routines, or if you're in a rush!

Hey y’all! Okay so I went back and forth for what seemed like hours about what to call this post. It could be makeup products for post-workout, it could be everyday makeup products for a busy college student, or it could be makeup products for when you don’t feel like wearing a ton of makeup. But I’m just settling on quick and easy daily makeup because it encompasses all of the options and more.

This routine takes me at most 10 minutes but usually it’s around a solid 5 minutes. It requires only four products minimum (blush and bronzer not included) which means it can be taken with you anywhere! Hence the reason I wanted to make this a post-workout makeup post.

Protein Brownies

High protein brownies perfect for any gym junkie.

Happy happy Friday! Let me just fill your feed with a slice of chocolatey deliciousness for a second. I’m going to give you a little bit of a backstory on these brownies. So my neighbor, long time friend, and fellow fitness junkie Libby, also known as @fit_lib on Instagram, posted about these protein brownies back in December. She posted the recipe in January and ever since then, I’ve wanted to try them out.

I finally decided (six months later that is) to drive myself to the store, pick up all of the necessary ingredients, and whip up a batch of these bad boys. This recipe was created by Libby, and I’m just sharing it here on the blog. Here’s a few disclaimers before we get into this post:

3 Simple Ways to Drink More Water

Three easy ways to drink more water. Drinking water is a easy way to be more healthy.

We all know that water is good for us, right? We all know that we probably don’t drink enough water. We all know that we should drink more water, but a majority of us never get around to it. Drinking more water usually ends up on people’s New Year’s resolutions as a part of their goal to be healthier in the new year. And just like most New Year’s resolutions, they disappear by the end of January.

I know people who never drink water. They survive off of juice, sodas, teas, and coffee. Anything and everything but water because they “don’t like water.”

You don’t like water? You mean you don’t like the substance that provides life and makes up 60% of your body?

New Split, New Goals

Creating a gym routine perfect for you: the push pull legs split.

Happy Friday, y’all! I’m really excited about today’s post because I’m about to get super real with you. I keep things pretty open here on the blog and on my social medias as well, but most of the time what you see are the happy moments, the “yearbook” moments, and the moments where I’m at my best. It’s just sadly the way social media works.

It’s easy to take a look at my Instagram and think I have my life together, every single one of my workouts is high-quality, and my diet is always on point.

Fun fact: sometimes it’s not.
