I’m still hungover from the weekend. When did Halloween turn from eating sh*t loads of candy to drinking sh*t loads of alcohol. Either way, I hate it. I think it’s time for me to throw in the towel, grow up, and just start staying in on Halloween. When you’re still hungover 2 days later, it’s time to reevaluate your life decisions. That’s just how it is.

Last weeks workouts were a normal week of workouts, doing my normal CrossFit thing. Since I have been traveling so much, I’ve lost a ton of strength, especially core strength. So movements overhead, like push jerks, are more challenging than they used to be. But I’m happy to go lighter and pretty much just move through workouts. Especially since I’m traveling again this weekend. And maybe drinking. Damn alcohol, you creep up everywhere.

Be sure to check the bottom of the post! I have a simple at home or hotel gym workout for you plus new music AND some sweet new fitness apparel that is perfect for the winter that’s rearing it’s ugly head.

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. Being hungover is the worst! Totally depends on what you were drinking though; I love wine because I don’t get hungover, but any other alcohol and I’m down for the count the next morning no matter how little I drank.
    I wanted to say that I really appreciate these posts, and I love your attitude toward working out. I am pretty out of shape, and adopting your attitude of just “going through the motions” on days where I don’t want to work out has really helped keep me on track! I feel like there is this pressure to go 100% on everything all the time, and that just doesn’t work! Your positive attitude and feelings toward taking it easy and not going 100% all the time are so realistic. I just really appreciate your authenticity!

    1. so glad to hear it, annie. these aren’t my most popular post (comment wise) so it’s nice to hear from people that they actually like it!! and working out, while going through the motions, is better than no working out at all!

  2. I’m not sure how old you are but I noticed around 27/28ish hangovers were at least 2 days. I just wasn’t able to bounce back. It’s the worst!!! But sometimes you gotta party. Hope Deorro was a blast!

      1. Just wanted to chime in and say I like these posts too!

        Also I’m 27 this year, and YES to it being the first time in my life I’ve really noticed epically awful hangovers. My best friend’s bachelorette party (1 week after my 27th birthday) was the worst wake-up call to adulthood of my life. #ouch

  3. Love these posts Juli. Keep em coming! Those touch and go deadlifts sound like fun…I’ll have to give it a shot tomorrow.

  4. Love the shoes in the bottom pic.. though I love all of your outfits! What color are those? I don’t see the same ones in the link….

  5. I wish I could say you get used to the hangover thing, but oh, it only gets worse. I’m about to be forty now, and even the buzz is ruined for me because I already know what will happen in the morning, and the next morning, and the next morning….

  6. I love that you post your workouts!! Especially the on the go/hotel/home workouts, as I don’t have access to a cf gym at this time 🙂 So, thank you! And as always, your honesty and transparency is refreshing and encouraging.

  7. Hey Julie!
    I want to try the partner workout…is it 100 burpees, etc. PER PERSON? Yikes!
    Love your blog. Thanks for all the great ideas and tips!

  8. I like that you post your workouts and I want to try some, but honestly I dont understand what a lot of your lingo means. I like in this post how you linked to you tube videos for some of the excercises, would be helpful on other terms for those of us that dont frequent a CF gym. Love your posts though.

    1. thanks for the feedback, jeriann. that’s just A LOT to look up and link, but i’ll try to link more. but if you are ever stuck, just search the movement on youtube and you’ll have a ton of videos to help you go through the movement perfectly!

  9. I just started crossfit and So far I really like it. It’s been helpful and motivating to read your posts and now be able to understand what you are talking about. Thank you

  10. Juli – I really love these posts, especially the at home/hotel gym workouts you post. I don’t really have the time (or money) to frequent CF or Orangetheory classes right now so I really appreciate these. I did the one you posted above yesterday and it kicked my ass. I also would love to see more “What I ate in a Day” posts- those are really helpful & so fun to read! Thanks for blogging – your authenticity and humor is refreshing!

    1. you got it! just kept tabs on what i ate today to share that with you guys next week! so glad you are liking my workouts, I absolutely love hearing that and it keeps me wanting to create more!
