5 Items to Keep at Your Desk for a Lunch Break Workout


By Esta Fiesta (@EstaFiestaPR)

Sometimes getting sweaty before work just can’t happen and you’ve got to squeeze in a workout on your lunch break. Stash these five items at your desk to make sure you’re always prepared.

Cleansing Wipes Make cleaning up post workout a breeze by keeping cleansing wipes on hand. These also come in handy if you need to wipe off makeup before working out.

Baby powder If nothing else, keep a travel size bottle of baby powder at your desk. Baby powder can be rubbed onto thighs to prevent chaffing, double as a deodorant, and triple as a dry shampoo if you need it!

Bobby Pins An intense workout may ruin your do. Fix stray hairs or create a new look altogether with a few bobby pins.

Portable Fragrance Baby powder alone isn’t enough to make you smell fresh when you return to your desk – keep a roll-on or travel size of your favorite perfume on hand to reapply post workout.

Tube of lipstick You probably won’t apply a full face of makeup just for the second half of your workday. Stash a tube of red lipstick to touch up your look, or apply it pre-workout for a confidence boost! How often do you workout on your lunch break? Do you keep these, or any other products stashed at your desk?
