Congratulations to Roberta Hutcheon who was the randomly selected winner of the “Plus Up” Your Gym Bag giveaway! Thanks to everyone who entered. I’m sorry to hear that so many of you do not have actual gym bags. I have at least 3 stuffed in my closet that I received as part of various promotions from different companies. I feel like I should launch some sort of gym bag relocation program.

Disclosure: The cost of the “Plus Up” Your Gym Bag makeover for me and the upcoming winner was covered by Kellogg’s FiberPlus.
As I teased yesterday, I recently got the opportunity to “Plus Up” my gym bag from Kellogg’s FiberPlus. They gave me a coupon for a free box of FiberPlus bars and $75 in gift certificates to buy whatever else I wanted.
After putting off this makeover to the very last day and then reading Lanie’s comment that the bag “needs glitter,” I was momentarily tempted to run to Michael’s and spend $75 on a Bedazzler and glitter glue. Or I could have followed Lady Gaga’s lead and made myself a meat gym bag or meat sweat suit—made from lean cuts, of course.
Instead, I went to Target. I always end up buying stuff at Target that I didn’t know I needed. After cruising the aisles, this is what I threw in my cart:

I have never been on a makeover show, and I probably never will be, but my gym bag recently leaped at the opportunity to be made over (or would have if it weren’t an inanimate object). Here is the “before” photo:
Going clockwise from the left, we’ve got a towel which should make you happy the Internet doesn’t yet have smell-o-vision. There’s also a pink water bottle, deodorant, a lock, my pace/distance tracker, and a change of clothes which includes sports socks, a sports bra, and running pants all made from sweat-wicking materials. These are the basic things I use before, during and after my workouts.
That’s the gym bag as it is now, but tomorrow you will see it after the “Plus Up Your Gym Bag” makeover it got from Kellogg’s FiberPlus bars. Or you will as soon as I go and buy stuff for the makeover. Look at me, daring to put the “dead” in deadline! (If you have any ideas for what I should buy, do comment.) You’ll also have a chance to win [...]
