Gym Bag of DOOM

I've been doing a lot of thinking about what I take to the gym lately. My shoulders and upper back have been bothering me, and I think it's because of all of the stuff I carry in my gym bag every day! Seriously, when I got an official gym bag months ago, it had just the basics of gym-going staples. Now, it's expanded to a 20 pound beast that I don't know what to do with!

What's in the bag?
  • Running skirt
  • Shorts
  • 2 t-shirts
  • Sports bra
  • Extra pair of underwear
  • Flip-flops
  • Athletic shoes
  • Bath towel
  • Hand towel
  • Brush
  • Loofah
  • Hair dryer
  • Trial size shampoo, conditioner, and body wash
  • Combination lock
  • Tampon
  • Water bottle
  • Lotion
  • Sun screen
  • iPod
  • Not pictured: running sunglasses, gym card, extra socks
I mean, looking at the picture, it seems like a lot. But it all fits in the bag, and I can't think of a single thing in there that I don't use on at least 50% of my workouts. I just wish it wasn't so darned HEAVY.

What does the inside of your gym bag look like?

I hit the gym after work, on the way home so I don't have to lug all of that stuff to get ready with. If I did, I probably wouldn't go! :)
