In general, I am really bad at drinking the amount of water my body needs. If I get to choose between coffee and water, I choose coffee. Not good, I know, but I feel like water alone is just so boring. I like flavoured or sparkling water a lot better.
I stumbled upon this bottle on Instagram and I really like it. It is from the brand Shedfat (http://www.shedyourfat.com/infuser-bottle.html). Fruit infused water should be really healthy, and this bottle makes it seem really easy to create your own flavour by mixing different berries. For the best result you’ll have to leave the berries inside the cold water for at least 30 minutes before drinking.
I don’t know if it makes a difference, really. But I would probably choose organic berries to be sure avoid any chemicals.

Among clutches and handbags, my gymbag is probably the one I use the most. Let’s take a look inside.
Inside, I have my black Adidas trainers, which I use in the gym with only one exception: Squats! When squatting, I use my Reebok Crossfit shoes because they support me much better than the trainers. There is a huge difference, I believe. I use the yellow leather straps for deadlifts. It irritates me when my hands are slipping the barbell, but I feel I can easily lift a heavier weight. Especially when it’s warm outside and the gym is hot like a sauna. Here the straps can be a help, but usually, I deadlift without the straps.
Sometimes, I bring a banan and a proteinshake with me to the gym, but mostly I just hurry home to blend it all into a well-tasting smoothie. I have protein powder in many different flavours, and my favourite flavour right now is caribbean chocolate (coconut taste) or strawberry/white chocolate. One banana, 30 gram whey, and water. Simple, but yet so tasting. I should post a picture of this soon.
I also bring my membership card (of course), a padlock, a hair band and my headphones. My set of headphones is essential when I am doing cardio. I usually powerwalk to an episode of Modern Family or Glee. It magically makes the time goes faster.
My good old running shoes I use when I am doing cardio or powerwalking outside. I like to walk in the nature, and these shoes are often very muddy.

I find there is something cool about this jumpsuit from Rivia Sports. I am not sure if I would wear it to the gym myself but it just looks so comfortable.
These are my gorgeous high heels for the competition in September. I bought them online and crossed my fingers they would fit me. Luckily they fit like they were made for me, and I couldn’t be happier.

My sports bag is pretty old. We are talking 3-4 years now, if not more. It’s from Nike and when you think about how much I have used it, not only for the gym, but also on weekend trips and holidays, it is still in an amazing condition. Here are three gym bag versions I would consider buying if I needed a new one.
