Bikini season is soon approaching my friends which is why I’ve been making more of an effort to hit the gym and get active! You all know I’m not a gym junkie but I do see the importance of living an active lifestyle and whether I like it or not, I really do feel better after a good sweat session. So with that said I figured I would share what’s been in my gym bag lately including my go to snack that I have before, after, and any time in between going to the gym- it’s just that yummy!
I discovered barkTHINS® during my bachelorette in Palm Springs of all places and it was seriously love at first bite. When we came home I searched high and low but could only find it in one store- until now! For the first time Canadians are now able to get their hands on the dark chocolate thins not only in multiple locations but in all four flavours- coconut & almond, almond with sea salt, pumpkin seed with sea salt, and pretzel with sea salt!
What I love about barkTHINS® is A. it’s dark chocolate and B. barkTHINS® are Non-GMO Project verified, Fair Trade IngredientsTM certified, and contain no artificial colours or flavours. Whether I’m eating it from the bag or crumbling it and adding to my yogurt, you can’t go wrong! #snackingelevated
Before I get into what’s been in my gym bag these days I need to point out that I don’t shower or get ready for the day there so I only pack only the essentials which have saved my butt on more than one occasion. I guess that’s why they’re my essentials!
Runners + Headphones
If I forgot these two I would seriously have to turn back because working out in my ugg boots just isn’t practical and having no music at the gym is like eating a cone without the ice cream- am I right??
I honestly don’t know how many times I’ve forgotten socks when going to the gym. It’s the worst. You would have thought I would have learned my lesson but it was only this year that I started packing an extra pair and guess what? I haven’t forgotten a pair since! They must be a good luck charm.
This one is kind of a given but it wouldn’t be a what’s in my gym bag post if I didn’t mention it!
Ever since discovering that Canada offers all four flavours I have been carrying them in my gym bag ever since. No joke. Whether I need a quick pick me up before or after the gym these have come in handy numerous times. There is nothing worse than having an intense workout and being left feeling famished so luckily barkTHINS® is there to save the day! #betterwithbarkthings
Hair ties, bobby pins, face wipes, and tampons are things that every girl needs in their gym bag. We’ve all had to go through those moment of having an annoying stray hair or having to ask someone if they have an extra tampon so why not just skip those unnecessary situations and pack em!? Let’s just say I’ve learned from my mistakes.
I’d love to hear what you keep in your gym bag and if you’re a fellow chocolate lover be sure to pick up a bag of barkTHINS® during your next grocery shop!
barkTHINS® can be found in Canada at the following locations…
