I wish I had something to say about last nights episode of The Bachelorette, but I hated it. I hated her choice, I hated seeing little baby Blake cry, and I hated that Becca got to go to the Maldives and I didn’t. And honestly, who cares about my opinion, right? Right.


Well hopefully you care ever so slightly about my opinion because I have a strong opinion about working out. I think everyone should do it. No matter if you’re walking, spinning, running, lifting, dancing, prancing…I don’t care, you just need to move. Our bodies were made for it. But I understand that it can be hard to know where to start or know what to do when you’re traveling or even how to get a workout in when you’re stuck at home with a napping baby. So today I’m kicking off my new Sweat & Snack series with a workout you can do anywhere and a delicious protein-filled snack you can have afterwards!

Sweat & Snack: Greek Yogurt Protein Fudgsicles & Loop Band Workout

One of the main questions I get on the blog is what to snack on. And the other request is for workout videos. So I’m bringing those two things together for the best of both worlds. I want people to know that they don’t have to spend hours in the gym to get a great workout in. And that you can have healthier choices around the house when it comes to your snacks. And here we are – Sweat & Snack!

So let’s first walk you through the workout. For this workout, all you need is a loop band. I really love Alexia Clark’s bands (which is what I’m using in this video) because of the thickness and strength of them, but you can find a ton on Amazon or at any sporting goods store near you. Heck, even Target has some great ones that I keep in my purse! Once you have a loop band, all you need is your lovely body.

So here’s how the workout looks – 

  1. First you’ll 12 banded bicep curls (on each side), then 20 banded clam shells (per side), then 12 palms facing band pull apart, 12 palms facing down pull apart and 12 palms facing up pull apart. You’ll do this 4 times through.
  2. Once you finish your 4 rounds, you do 15 banded bent over rows (per side), 20 banded glute bridge, and 15 banded plank taps (per side) and you’ll do this 4 times through.
  3. Once you finish, you’ll rest 2 minutes, then you will do 50 lateral banded walk and 25 crossfit-style burpees then one more time through.

For modifications:

  • Use a lighter band or no band at all for any of the movements
  • If you have strengthened your are enough yet and crossfit-style burpees hurt the lower back, do not touch your chest to the floor. Simply kick feet back to a plank position then stand back up.

I’ve attached this photo below so you can pin it and save the workout for later!!

And now let’s chat about this delicious snack! Since it’s still summer and hot as balls outside, I thought it would be the perfect time to give you a little cold treat to enjoy after a sweaty workout in the park or your backyard or maybe just your house that doesn’t have air conditioning. Been there. This recipe has 8 ingredients and literally all you have to do is blend and pour into popsicle molds. Don’t have popsicle molds? I get it. Who has room for that sh*t? Pour the mixture into little Dixie cups and add some popsicle sticks! Boom. You’re DIY savvy AF. Eat these for a post workout snack or for a little afternoon post pool treat. No matter what, these fudgsicles are way better for you than anything you’ll find at the store.

Now go try this workout out and make these fudgsicles ASAP!! I can’t wait to get your feedback on this new Sweat & Snack series!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Juli this is my favorite series you’ve ever come out with. I travel so much for work and always need workout ideas with minimal equipment. Great job on the video- I’m actually excited to do a hotel workout this week!

  2. I love this new series Juli! I love how you keep things simple yet effective! I am looking forward to seeing this series in the future!

  3. So excited for this! I am a workout video addict, so I look forward to doing yours. Plus you said “hot as balls.”. Whenever I say this my husband asks just how hot balls are. Lol!

  4. Poor baby Blake, haha! I couldn’t stand how sad he was, broke my heart 🙁

    Ordering bands right now, can’t believe I’ve never thought to buy some to have at home!

  5. Juli,

    HOLY SH**TTTTT This is amazing!!!!!! Aside from this workout looking amazing you are a complete natural in front of the camera! The cooking videos are great and these workout videos are an extra bonus! Thank you for a great travel workout!! These are going to make Tuesdays even better.

    Can’t wait for next week!!

    Btw you look amazing and your arms are jacked and its beautiful. Thank you for being one of the many examples of how muscles look amazing on women and I hope when women look at you they see that there is no reason to be afraid of lifting weights and doing more than just cardio.

    1. omg thank you so so much! these videos are a lot of work so i really appreciate you saying that!! and thank you for the compliment! i definitely hope to inspire more women out there to lift!

      1. You are so welcome!! Tbh I have been living with eating disorders for about eleven years now and one of the biggest things that has helped me when I was in a bad space has been this blog and you sharing your stories and tips. I wont ever be able to thank you enough for everything and i’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way.

  6. I just did this workout and it was great. I haven’t been doing any Crossfit style workouts in the last few months, but I was able to get through both sets of burpees jumping up every rep. Looking forward to try next week’s!

  7. Love the band workout Juli, and you’re doing awesome with the videos!! Quick question on the popsicles….would these work as something other than popsicles, say like pouring it into a loaf pan and freezing, then scooping out like ice cream? Any other suggestions for someone without a popsicle mold? Thank you!
