Good happy morning!! I know those words don’t really go together and people out there who are obsessed with grammar are very unhappy with that sentence, but I’m still writing it! No need to email me about my poor writing skills. Because I’m over here happy as a clam, waking up in my own bed and now on the couch with my dog while I type up this post! I am one happy panda when I am home to my two favorite guys and our little house! I absolutely loved being in Austin, but being home is definitely my favorite place to be. A part of me still wants to live in Austin, but after experiencing 4 days of 102 degrees with full humidity, that will only happen if we are ever able to afford a lake house. Because I don’t know what else I would do there. Other than eat…which is all I did all weekend.

So obviously Austin is one of my favorite places to visit. It’s buzzing, they have amazing restaurants, the people are awesome – it’s just the best. The problem is the humidity would take a bit to get use to, especially in the summer. And after being there over the weekend, I can tell that if I moved there, I would have to get my life together and not just eat then sit inside all day. Because that’s all I seemed to do. Eat, eat, quick workout, then eat some more. I was definitely carrying a bit of water weight yesterday and not feeling my best. But sometimes, vacations take over your life a little bit.

But for me, I’m never getting those days and experiences back, so I’m not upset about the choices I made. I’m just back on the healthy choices train now that I’m back at home! I’m pounding water, I’m making simple healthy meals, I’m staying away from sugar, and I’m back to my regular workouts. So in no time flat, I can get back to feeling like myself again…so I can hop on a yacht in the Caribbean and play this game all over again. Even with an extremely busy week and a half before I leave for the Caribbean, I’m making sure that I’m still fitting in my workouts and taking care of myself before I leave!

My point is – enjoy your vacations, enjoy the little moments and enjoy every bite. Then get right back to the habits that help you feel your best and make you thrive! Try not to see those little moments on vacations are regretful decisions. Instead see them as time you will never get back so they were enjoyed in the best way possible. And today, set the tone for the week and get after your goals right away! Today is going to be awesome! I can feel it!

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 honestly have no clue! my friend is going with a group of 10 and 2 of her friends dropped out so she asked me to come along with. i don’t even know what the company is called that runs this type of trip haha! but i’ll be doing a recap with all the details once i get back!

    2. Alex – look into the Moorings – you can hire a crew or if you are certified, do it yourself. They have locations all over the world. We’ve used them at least three times now in the BVI and it has been amazing.

  1. I think that trying new workouts in new gyms is one of the funnest part of traveling/vacationing! I mean…. my own personal experience of burping up delicious BBQ while attempting to sprint at a gym i dropped into is just a fun vacation side effect. YOLO. 😛

    I hope you’re gonna write more about Crush Fitness! I’m curious about it since Austin is a place I plan to return to soon.

    1. i’ve actually talked about it before when i went there last year. it’s very similar to orange theory, but with no rowers or heart rate monitors. it’s a great workout!

  2. I heard you mention a trip to Boise is in your future and let me tell you that is one of my absolute favorite places! Everything downtown is within walking distance, there’s great hotels, so much great food! It’s added more and more unique restaurants over the years. Can’t wait to see where you go and what you do there! Fork is amazing if you eat there, but you can’t go wrong eating downtown for sure.

  3. Just wanted to say thank you for posting hotel and travel wods. I was at a conference all weekend and didn’t want to get up to workout just because I didn’t feel like planning out something to do, and then I remembered that you posted a hotel wod a few days ago so I looked it up and did that! It was a good little workout – I was in and out and then felt good about my day. So, thank you!

  4. It’s super encouraging to hear that even on a trip with three other Paleo-committed ladies, you still didn’t eat your best, and you don’t regret it! It’s always good to hear that it’s okay to enjoy those moments, especially coming from someone where eating clean is so integrated into your life. Thanks for sharing – I love your posts and IG stories 🙂

  5. Thanks Juli. I’m on vacation in Europe for 3 weeks and did your hotel workout this morning. Short and sweet as I didn’t have much motivation today, but feel much better for doing something 🙂

  6. Sweets Addict

    After reading your email…. this is my favourite post of the week!! So strong (and skinny!) Cheers to your weekend too!

  7. Hey Juli! I’m going to Austin in a couple of days and love trying new workouts when I travel. I usually do Orangetheory and love that kind of workout, but how does it compare to crush fitness? do you have any recommendations for cool class-type places to try when I’m there? If you have any suggestions at all, that would be awesome! 🙂
