You know when you have “one of those weeks”, where you just can’t pull yourself out of your crappy mood? That was my entire week last week. I don’t have many of those weeks. Whenever I feel myself falling into one, I say, “Hey Juli, stop sucking at life” and then I move on with my day with a smile. But last week, it wasn’t happening. I felt fatigued, sad, and just incredibly lazy. I’m not sure if the book tour finally caught up to me, but I was dragging ass and my personality was lame sauce. It wasn’t until I spent the day shopping and eating butternut squash risotto that I was finally able to shake my sh*t attitude about life. It’s amazing what a good fitting pair of bell bottom jeans can do for a soul.

Anywho, because of that attitude, my workouts SUCKED. I ended up not even going one day that I had planned to go because I just didn’t give a f*ck. I don’t like that feeling. Why would I not care about taking care of myself? That’s dumb. But the comfort of my pajamas and a blanket and my dog was just way more inviting then a workout with pistols. But to my point, what do you do to pull yourself out of a mood that just won’t quit? Tell me everything!

Just FYI, no “What I ate in a day” post today because I’m traveling today to LA so I’m going to post “What I eat while traveling” tomorrow and show you what goes on in a JB day. Do you hate when I say JB? Me too, my friend, me too.

Sunday – Workout during open gym



Pull ups

Overhead walking lunges with 25# plate

It took me over 25 minutes to finish this and blisters on my hands from not doing pull ups for over 1 month. Poor decision on my end

Monday – Planned rest day – Spent the day cooking for the blog, cooking up some Red Thai Beef Curry for you guys!

Tuesday – CrossFit Class

7 Front Squats (165/105) – I did back squats at 95#

7 C2B Pull Ups – I did regular pull ups

7 Burpees

*Start where you left off each round. I finished 6 rounds +4 reps

Wednesday – Unplanned Rest Day – I worked on the blog, emails, then pouted like a real son of a b*tch. Then I made Fall Harvest Chopped Salad with Apple Maple Vinaigrette and I liked life just a little bit more.

Thursday – CrossFit Class

15 mins To Find A Heavy Split Jerk.From Rack. – I worked up to 135#

*While your partner runs 200m, do as many bear complexes as possible until they get back in the door. If you drop the bar, you must perform 5 burpees. Score is total number of bear complexes both partners complete.

Me and my partner got 57 reps at 75#

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. I think you were taking care of yourself, by staying home and snuggling with your pup, if that was what you needed at that time. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You do plenty on other days.
    I have those days too, and try not to feel guilty about it.

  2. I was right there with you last week with a piss poor attitude. There was even one point during the week, I was like what the hell is wrong with me this week?? I just try to focus on the positives all around me and that will pull me out of my slump. Snuggles from my pup seems to help too 🙂

  3. I had the same moody week last week as well! Deserved a real slap in the face to snap me out of it. Luckily, I forced myself to be productive this past weekend and run all the annoying errands I had been putting off. I wore an awesome outfit to work today, the long distance boyfriend arrives tomorrow, and I’m back on track!

  4. Ugh it is so hard to get outta that pit. Usually I go on a drive and jam that music with the windows down. Thank goodness it’s been nice and warm still.

    Going to see Misterwives on Friday at Gothic. Check out Our Own House.

  5. Hi Juli,

    Kind of random but wondering if you can give any insight on getting your L1/coaching CrossFit. I’m about to sign up for the level one and I would love to hear about your experience and how it has been coaching since. Thanks so much!

    P.S. Finally tried the ‘almost 5 ingredient pizza spaghetti pie’ and it was delish! Just had some leftovers for lunch!!

  6. Love your blog and your humor!!!! Quick question my wife started crossfit and loves it. she has been having shoulder and knee pain. A physical therapist said to quit crossfit. would you agree or seek second option. Thanks

    1. i wouldn’t agree with that, but i’m also not a physical therapist. i’ve hurt in CF before and changed how I worked out (lifting lighter, skipping certain movements) and those pains went away! sometimes you gotta figure out what works for you!

  7. I love your honesty and transparency! It’s refreshing to hear that not everyone has their sh*t together all the time! When I’m having a pitty party for one, I find I need to recharge by just “being” for a couple days. Allowing myself to not to all the “to-do’s” and the “have-to’s”… They’ll get done in the next day or two and life carries on! I also allow myself the time to do things that bring me joy that I don’t usually find time to do like read, watch a movie, take a bath, take a walk without distractions, have jammie days , etc! Thank you for being you!!

  8. With your 40-30-20-10 workout, was that 40 of each, then 30 of each, and so on? I feel like that is the obvious answer but I then I wasn’t really sure!
