I have to say that I miss the gym! With going to Physical Therapy, I've only been allowed to do my PT exercises. So the gym has sort of been off limits - unless I want to go there and lay on their mats to do my workout. So instead of driving to the gym, I've been doing my  PT exercises at home.

But here are 5 things that are in my gym bag.

1. The first thing in my gym bag is my headphones, and my workout gloves. But honestly, I usually forget and leave my gloves in my bag (ha). But I try to have my weight lifting gloves with me for my strength training workouts. Lil Man doesn't like how my hands feel with callouses. :-)

2. Next is my Dot&Dot Small Packing Cube

I usually pack a change of clothes in this small packing cube so that I can easily pull it out and have everything together in one place. 

3. And most of the time I don't take a shower (because I'm usually just picking my son up and going home), but I always have my Shandali Ultra-Sport Towel just in case I need it.  

It folds up super small and doesn't take up a lot of room. 

4. Toiletries - I always have a small bag with shampoo, soap, lotion etc. And my body wipes. I usually use the body wipes since most of the time I don't get a chance to take a shower. I like to use the ones that people use for camping. I find they transport well and don't dry out too fast. 

5. And last but not least, a lock for my locker. 

So, what's in your workout bag? Or if you workout at home, what are your must haves?

  1. Nice list. Headphones are always important to have. I like the packing cube idea to use for clothes. Definitely would help keep everything all in one place.

  2. I have never hear of Dot&Dot small packing cubes. Just read your review on it. Now I want one. -L

    1. I love mine! I have two different sizes and use them for everything!

  3. I could use those packing cubes for my trip to Florida. I'm going to look into them..

  4. ooh, i like the packing cube! what a great idea. Thanks for linking up with us!

    1. I immediately fell in love with the packing cube ha! I love your linkups!

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
