What do you stash in your gym bag.

First up....my amazing neighbor is trying to steal my husband.

She brought over the yummiest quiche I have ever had.

I don't blame Billy for coveting a wife that makes food like this.  I guess my normal 1 lb of roasted broccoli and potatoes with ketchup and sprinkled in skittles isn't very appetizing to him.  I better go home and make him butter filled cookies to make up for this.

IMG_3859.JPG

She said that she made it with eggs, half and half, cheese, ham and the magic ingredient that made my heart tingle.....CINNAMON.  Try it, so good.

She also made us little banana pudding cups.  Guess why I was super excited about these....

1. They were delicious.

2. They have bananas on them and Billy hates bananas...that means two for me.  I guess I need to reavaluate my New Years Resolutions about the whole 'others focused' thing.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One of my favorite presents that I have ever gotten is this gorgeous gym bag from Billy a few years ago.

IMG_2599.JPG

Besides the gum wrappers, Boston Marathon course elevation maps and a picture I drew and colored of me finishing a sub 3 hour marathon......these are the things that I keep in my bag that I take to the gym with me every. single. day.

1. Body Glide- I chafe like no other.  The back of my arms are the worst so I put this on everywhere!

2. 3 pairs of headphones- Heaven forbid one doesn't work and I have to go musicless.

3. Along with #2 I always have two ipods with me.  If one is out of charge, I am in luck.

4. Magazine or book- to beat boredom on the elliptical.

5. Extra socks. My feet sweat a lot.

6. 7,000 bobby pins and 14 rubber bands.  I hate it when my hair gets in my face but luckily there is enough grease to hold it back on its own.

7. Food.  Banana or shot blocks. I hate being hungry. Oh, and of course a waterbottle.

8. An extra pair of running shorts.  For some reason I used to always forget to pack these when I went to the gym after school. Just because the cardio cinema room at the gym is dark doesn't mean anything. You live and you learn.

9. 48 batteries.  I would freak out if I didn't have a good battery for the microphone when I teach spin.

10.  $1.25 just in case I forget my water bottle and need to buy one.  I would die of thirst five minutes into my workout without one.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tell me what is in your gym bag!!!!  Or what do you take with you to the gym/workouts?

What are your favorite quiche ingredients?

-I am loving this cinnamon thing and loads of cheese is a must.

Onions and peppers in my quiche! No gym bag for me right now. Trying to save some money, but sadly my workouts don't happen without a gym.

That was sooooo funny about the picture that you drew.... because I believe you!!! I have most of that stuff in my gym bag plus a lock for the locker, tampons, my inhaler in case I get an asthma attack from exercising (hasn't happened in YEARS), deodorant, body spray and bandaids. I love your gym bag!! I had a bag similar to that but then everything in it started smelling because of my shoes :(

girl you better get baking! hehe, I kid. I don't take a bag to the gym, but do carry headphones and ipod in my pocket. I usually eat a banana on the way there.

I'm not really a big quiche fan, but that looks good! I'd have to say I'd like one with mushrooms, since mushrooms are noms.

Hah, can we see your drawings on the blog? I carry my shoes, ipod, magazines, water & snacks. All that broccoli is so good for you - we were just talking in class today about how broccoli type veggies help your body get rid of cancerous toxins. I love me some broccoli!

I'm afraid I am going to need the recipe for that banana pudding cup immediately. It looks like a mini banana cream pie, and those are my favorite. Yum.

And I'll just go ahead and confess right now that I don't have a gym bag...

Yeah...I'm a slacker.

Extra socks, extra running shorts, 84,000 bobby pins, 4 headbands, 16 ponytail holders, chapstick, deodorant, face wash, flip flops, two swim suits, swim cap, three pairs of goggles, ipod, emergency snack, three dollars (not really sure where they came from?) and a tampon (or three...).

I am such a little girl scout. Too bad I almost always still forget something important haha!

this post saved my workout. had you not mentioned "ipod" i would have forgotten to charge mine...and if it was dead, so would have been my run!

in my gym bag i also have a lock for the gym lockers, a couple of towels (in case the gym gets stingey and won't give me extras) and my swim gear, which for some reason, i always have with me.

Killer bag! Love it! I have to have a headband in my bag to hold back the flyaways. Socks and a sports bra are necessary. Give me my shoes and do I really need anything else? Oh, shorts, yeah. Inappropriateness!

quiche - veggies!! Your neighbors are fabulous! I do need to move to P-town!

I have 2 bags, one for the girls in child care and one for me. In there bag is a diaper and wipes, and an extra pair of pants and undies for the 3 year old, as well as their snacks and drinks. In MY gym bag are my clean clothes to shower into, my toiletry bag, my mp3 player, lifting gloves, lock for the locker, phone, my water bottle, and my running shoes if I am running that day. I only wear them outside if I am running outside. Glad you are feeling better!

For me, the question is WHAT IS IN MY PURSE!?

You should see the stuff I pull out of there! On Friday everyone was laughing at me as I pulled random objects out of my purse like my old cell phone that's no longer in service, receipts from 5 years ago, a pair of socks (?), scissors, a christmas card, a tangerine...

I really need to clean out my purse.

You are so super prepared with your gym bag!! Last night I didn't have a hair tie so I had to maneuver about 20 bobby pins into my hair to hold it up. Such a pain in the butt.

Pretty much what you said minus socks & magazines. Sadly, I used to bring school books or flashcards for cycling indoors. Studying at the gym got me through a lot of classes!

My "gym bag" is usually a plastic grocery bag with some clothes thrown in it. My gym has towels and toiletries, plus water fountains everywhere, so as long as I am properly clothed, life is good.

Hmmmm, ham.

Ummm I carry ipod and earbuds, backup clothes, food. lots of food!!!! oh and hair products. and deodorant!
that quiche looks and sounds AMAZING!

I also always have two iPods! My new Nano that I bought myself, and the Touch Shane got me for Christmas two years ago. I love it, I can listen to music without wearing a huge MP3 player, then I can watch Glee! :)

I LOVE quiche. My husband had never had it until we got married, now he's converted!

In my gym bag I have pretty much the same thing as you + an extra set of clothes. I always manage to forget one key item, so I just bring everything with me in duplicate.

I take a lock for the lockers, an Anti-bottle (http://vapur.us/), change of clothes, Ipod, book -- nothing too crazy or special :)
I often bring candy to eat for each 10mins I work out :)

In my gym bag - way too much!
Spin shoes, extra socks, bathing suit/swim cap/goggles, towel, miniture bottles of shampoo/cond/bodywash/deoderant, a few packs of gu, ear phones, water bottle, extra underware. If Im going straight to work from the gym then I take curling iron, make up ect.

My husband makes killer quiche. Probably very unhealthy as he uses like 3 eggs and whipping bream. His magic ingredient is NUTMEG! Give it a whirl! Nothing beats a ham and cheese or broccoli and cheese quiche...I am the person that steals other people's crust too... oh well!
my gym bag: not nearly as stocked as yours....
diaper and wipes
People/Runners World Magazine
Whatever book I am reading...Catching Fire right now
Ipod
headphones
water bottle
Clif Shot- Espresso or Mocha
towel
body glide

I don't carry a bag to the gym because my house is only about 5 minutes away but I do carry a bag to school on the days I run with the girls. Pants, sports bra, shirt, pullover, socks, shoes, garmin, cliff bar, banana, powerade zero, gu, pony tail holders, bobby pins, gum, and sometimes my iPod and headphones.

I am so lucky, I either run outside or walk across the street to the gym. This girl doesn't have a gym bag!

I loved your list. Honestly, I bring all the necessities, and then I never end up needing them. Weird fact about me: I can't work out on a machine if I don't have a towel to throw over the screen.... I can't STAND watching the minutes and miles tick by. I like to zone out and just go. Weird, I know.

Love quiche. Mmmm ... breakfast for dinner tomorrow.

What's in my gym bag? Hilarious question.

A diaper and a few wipes.

And that's it. No music, food, water, or gear. I have the baby changing in case I get summoned to child care to fix up a problem. Nothing else would keep me from enjoying my "happy hour" at the gym.

Hope your mouth is feeling better.

I love bacon and mushrooms and LOTS of swiss cheese in my quiche. So delicious!

I love the idea of cinnamon in quiche! I have never actually made quiche, but I'm a fan of the standard ingredients that you listed....and now cinnamon?!?!

In my gym bag, I have only the essentials---extra socks, shirt, toiletries, mp3 player, lots of hair doobies....deodorant. I think that's it.

i don't even own a gym bag. if i have a bag, it's a leftover plastic shopping bag. what a sad life i lead :)

body glide is the jam. i used to get horrible cuts (also from having sports bras that were too old). i basically can't run in a sleeveless shirt. so sad.

Mine is ALWAYS loaded with food and water bottles "just in case". And my fat chopstick that looks like a gluestick, along with extra headbands because my hair does NOT stay!

P.s. your gym bag is hot, where can I find one?!

My gym bag is really scary...

*Garmin,405, foot pod, HRM
*terry cloth shorts to wear while blowing the hair dry pre work.
*7 pairs of underwear, as you forgot shorts, I have a habit of having to go comando to work..not cool in 4F weather.
* 2 ipod
* 2 headphones
* Kor Delta Waterbottle
*extra socks
*Cor Silver face soap
* awesome round brush to fix the hair
* many headbands
*dry shampoo
*baby wipes from Costco.

I think a small county could live out of my gym bag!

My gym bag is a bag my mom picked up from a garage sale last summer. Its huge and from old navy and I pack all my stuff in there. I empty it every night. I carry all the stuff I need and usually I forget something like today when I forgot socks and had to stop at Brians on the way to work to get a pair of his socks to wear. Last year I forgot a towel that was fun.

I'm currently looking for a cute gym bag...I want a Lulu one but the one I wanted is sold out! I guess other people liked it a lot too. Blessing in disguise because it wasn't cheap!

Can you inspire me to run longer distances because seriously right now I'm in a rut and just wish I could go bang out 20 miles no prob.

On a more realistic note...did you get my comment back to you on my blog?? Would you likey some Apple Butter of your own??? Let me know, I can surely mail you some! I have an unopened jar :) or pumpkin butter, if you'd prefer! Holler at me girlfrand!

Hmm... I don't have a go-to gym bag - which is probably why when I try to do something silly like go directly from the gym to work (or vice versa), I inevitably end up forgetting a key article of clothing and have to spend the day in a sports bra, or running socks.

A couple years ago, Brent biked to school and when he got there he realized that he had forgotten his pants. He had to teach all of his classes in bike tights - including the class that he was covering for another teacher!

I pack my gym bag from top to bottom with the same things everytime:

1. Tennis shoes
2. Flip flops
3. Towel & wash cloth
4. Socks, underware & sports bra
5. Black workout pants, sleeveless t-shirt, and a t-shirt to go on top
6. Shower bag filled with makeup, soap, deoderant and hair ties

There is a lock on the gym bag and one in my car. I carry my ipod, droid & shuffle for music. I have recently forgotten my headphones so tonight I am putting one in my car and once in my bag.

I agree with Tina, PLEASE get on twitter.

I always keep in my gym bag: toiletries, lock, towel, little terry wrap thing, 2 wet clothes bags, flip flops, blowdryer, hair brush, 100 ponytail holders, qtips (im a freak that HAS to have them after a shower), Powerbar gels, gym hand towel (for sweat), first aid kit, extra socks, extra undies, and lotion

I throw my makeup and clothes in there the night before.

I love all your gym bag gear (and the gym bag itself is SO cute!). I don't currently belong to a gym but we have a decent one where we live. I'm so anal about charging my iPod and my Garmin for outdoor runs. I'm not a big fan of quiche - never have been. I remember being a little kid and sleeping over at a friend's house. Her mom served us quiche for dinner and I sneakily put most of mine into a napkin then flushed it down the toilet. :)

I have a lot of random recipes and gum wrappers, bobby pins, lip balm, and my extra iPod (glad to know I'm know the only one with a back up *just in case*). I quite often forget one element of my outfit or another when i pack my bag in the morning, so maybe I should start keeping an extra one of everything in my bag?

Extra socks, flip flops for the shower, shower supplies, swim cap, goggles, ear plugs, ipod, a few dollars, and I still always seem to forget something.

I like quiche loaded with roasted veggies!

First, thanks for your SWEET comment!! I'm excited we're going to be blog buddies, too!

Now onto the questions...

1 - In my gym bag? Not nearly as much as what's in yours. I have one ipod, one pair of headphones, water bottle (sometimes 2), lock, antibacterial gel, and sometime Gu for my long runs.

2 - I LOVE QUICHE! Fave combos include: broccoli & cheddar, feta/swiss/or goat cheese and spinach, bacon and/or pancetta with any of the above!

 
At January 25, 2011 at 8:13 PM , Blogger Meg said...

1. shower stuff, an extra pair of pants (to be worn either during a workout or post-showering), extra headphones, two baseball caps (in case hair needs containing, and in case I take one out I'll always have another one), extra socks (just in case), and an empty water bottle that I can fill up if I forget my fav one.
2. omg I want quiche now. I make one with artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and feta. I also use fake chicken in it (because I'm a veggie), but it's supposedly great with chicken in it. and one serving is only 250 calories!

Hmmm-for fun I'm actually going to open my gym bag and look.

Gum, a whole bunch of single pieces strewn across the bottom.

A towel which is really grossly wet and I don't know why I left it in there.

One sock-in case I lose one of my legs apparently...

Body Glide-I practically bathe in this in runs over 10 miles. I have like permanent scars from forgetting it and people have genuinely been concerned about my well-being when I entered the shower at the gym.

Also-extra headphones that are so tangled I will never be able to use them again.

2 water bottles that have black spots in the bottom of them. I think it might be mold?? Yeah-I will probably still use them.

A screwdriver. I'm handy and know how to fix the stupid middle treadmill at the gym!

14 bobby pins and two ponytail holders.

Ah-thanks for motivating me to clean this out!

I have this really easy quiche recipe but it probably isn't very good for you...It calls for Bisquick, cheese, eggs, milk, and ham..we use spinach and no ham but whatever. I think that is it....so easy! Oh, and butter. told you it isn't good for you.

After I am all packed, I lay a big piece of paper on the top with the date of my "A" race, so when I get to the gym, maybe not feeling like going hard, as soon as I open my bag, I see that piece of paper as a reminder I cant slack off.

So I didn't forget my socks today, I packed 3 pairs just in case hahahaha!!! I also pack shower stuff (since I've been going before work), ugh but I did forget water. I always forget something! Until I get used to going in the AM I'm sure I'll forget something else.

I wish I had awesome neighbors like you do!!! Along with a lot of the same items you keep in your gym bag, I also keep a towel, chapstick, deoderant & body spay (for when I am leaving the gym and not going home - gotta try to cover up my funk).

I recently found you blog, and you are hilarious! :)

Do you recommend a certain type of head phones? I can't find any that I love....They always seems to pop out of my ears! I'm training for my first 1/2 marathon and really would like a good pair of head phones! :)

When I go to the gym, I bring:
mp3 player, water, hair elastics, Garmin + HR monitor + tank, shorts, shoes, bra, socks.

My gym bag is the black lululemon bag featured in my post from last night, purchased on sale (hooray!)

I don't usually bring fuel because I have never run on the treadmill more than 7.5 miles. Also, my gym is ~1.5 miles from my apartment. So really, I only bring the gym bag if I'm going to the gym right from work and can't change at home first.

i don't have a gym bag...now i feel left out. but if i did...extra socks, shirts, shorts, gu chomps, snack bars, water, lotion (i chaf like a mad woman too but have found out that body glide doesn't help; thick lotion works better! but may make you look like you pee'd your pants with the way sweat drips down your legs! hahah!) ipod/ipod band/earphones and...body spray.

I have the BEST zucchini broccoli quiche recipe! Officially I don't think it's very healthy because it includes LOTS of cheese, but you can kind of trick yourself into thinking it is because of the greens.

I mostly go to the gym straight from home so no bag...just a sweatshirt w/ my chapstick and car key in my pocket...and then of course I have my iPod and water bottle w/ me. When I used to bring a gym bag to work when I worked out there I had so much junk in my bag it was like Mary Poppin's bag! But at least I had everything I needed! :)
