I have my new gym bag and it is fantastic!  I took some pictures so you all can: 1) understand my previous gym bag misery; and 2) appreciate how excited I am!

Here is the bag I have been bringing to the gym for the past year and a half.  You can laugh - it was free.

And here is everything I attempt to jam into that bag.  Everyday.

In the summer I can usually fit everything but the second water bottle (protein shake for New Rules Days) and the New Rules Book.  In the winter, I have to carry my outdoor running layers separate.  As you can imagine, it is a very tight squeeze.

Are you ready?????  Check this baby out!

I imagine that this is what it feels like to buy your first house.  Look at all that space!  I could actually bring a towel!  And I will be able to fit winter running gear.  AND MY PHONE, KEYS AND WALLET.  No more extra purse to drag along!!  And did you check out the two tiered separate shoe department?  Heaven.

Can you feel my excitement!  I am psyched to head to yoga today! (yoga mat carried separately)


  1. love the bag, where did you get it?

  2. I ordered it from zappos, but they have it at ebags too. Its the Nike Varsity Girl bag - it was only $35!

  3. I love Kelley Armstrong's books!

  4. Thats funny Julia - that book is really good but I have been reading it for, like, 2 years! Its my "stationary bike book" for days I am too lazy to run.
