Yesterday I posted on Twitter asking for gym bag recommendations. I really wasn’t into paying the price for a Lululemon bag so what better place to find information than the internets!
I got a few recommendations (and one for the actual Lululemon bag I was trying to avoid buying).
The reason I need a new gym bag is because on an impulse, I went and upgraded my Boston Sports Club membership so that I can go to any BSC. I did that so I can start going to the gym at lunch. I know, right? How motivated of me. We will see how it actually works out, though I am extremely optimistic.
My hours changed at work, thus making it very difficult to get to the gym near my house in the morning, and let’s be honest, if I wait until after work to get my workout in, it just is NOT going to happen. I lose all motivation at the end of the workday.
Of course this means I will look like more of a hot mess during the day because I am not going to be applying makeup twice and I will have sweaty gross hair in the afternoons, but it’s a small price to pay for health, right?
Anyway, back to the bag. So I committed myself to the noon spin class today, so I needed a gym bag stat, thus eliminating the online purchase option. After attempting to find a reasonably priced bag at Citysports that had all of the features I was looking for, I got frustrated and left. I wanted a short-handle medium size bag with a “wet” pocket and smaller pockets inside the bag. Yes, I give up easily as I gave up after one store and ended up forking over the money for the Lululemon bag. $98 later (plus tax), I had a fancy schmancy gym bag.
It had everything I was looking for and to be honest, I just wanted to get my bag so I could get home to watch Gossip Girl. Priorities, people.
In other news, I have also taken up yoga again. I used to go every week to a studio in Cambridge, but since that studio closed, I had yet to find a studio that I actually liked. (I’m a yoga snob, I will not under any circumstances, take yoga at the gym. Both times I’ve done it it’s the most sorry excuse for yoga that I have ever seen). I finally found a studio near my house that isn’t great, but will do. I am committed to going at least once a week, twice if I am feeling motivated to attend a second class on the weekends.
I have also been on point with my food the last couple of weeks. I have been making my own protein bars for my breakfast and bringing lunch from home at least 4 out of 5 days.
I am on a STREAK y’all! Now let’s hope all this work pays off and I can fit into a bikini come June. I know that’s a long way away and I don’t have THAT much to lose…but the way this healthy living thing usually goes for me, that’s how long it will take me to get my butt into bathing suit shape. At least I’m being honest.
What healthy things have you done lately?
