Weekly Workouts While on The Road
I swear, this is my last selfie. Maybe ever. But when you are on the road for almost 2 weeks by yourself, yourself is sometimes your only friend. That sounds totally sad, doesn’t it? But it’s the truth, so you better smile back at your friend in the mirror or you’ll be real alone.
What the hell am I even talking about?
So guess what? I JUST got back home to Colorado Saturday night, worked out Sunday morning, did laundry, grabbed some groceries, repacked, and worked at the gym early this morning before I’m off to LA today. I’m filming a segment with Hallmark Home and Family TV, sharing a recipe from my newest cookbook Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook, so I’ll only be in LA until tomorrow night and then back home around midnight. BUT THEN I’m off to Mexico before I head out on the second leg of book tour. Breathe. But you know what is killing me just a little bit inside? Ree Drummond from The Pioneer Woman is filming THE DAY BEFORE ME. I’m missing her by one day. One. She’s the only person I truly enjoy watching on the Food Network and I won’t even get to meet her. Someday, my friend, someday.
Do you know what all this traveling means for you? LOTS of travel workouts. As you’ll see below, all the workouts in this post were workouts I did in hotel gyms while on the road for the first leg of my book tour. All the gyms I went to had at least dumbbells, but I made sure to do at least 1 body weight workout for you people who want that kind! I’m thinking that even after I stop traveling, I’m going to share at least one travel workout in each Weekly Workouts post since I know so many of you have to travel for work! Hope you like that little new tidbit!
Sunday – After having my signing on Friday in Boston, then spending my entire Saturday hanging out with my fiancé, I worked all day Sunday on an upcoming project. So once I got back to the hotel in the evening, I was ready to do all kinds of stuff in the gym since I hadn’t worked out in a few days.
10 minutes walking unhill at 6% grade
Then 5 rounds:
15 dumbbell thrusters and 15 burpees
Then 3 sets of:
15 swiss ball pass thrus and 20 lunges holding dumbbells
And 3 sets of:
40 russian twists with med ball
12 dumbbell tricep kickbacks
12 dumbbell bicep curls
Monday – Travel day to New York then pretty much straight to a book signing then a late dinner!
Tuesday – Travel day to Pittsburgh where I ate an early dinner then closed all the blinds, put down the black out curtains, and passed up probably around 7:30pm.
Wednesday – Pittsburgh workout then another book signing in the town of Sewickley. Maybe one of my new favorite towns ever. If I liked kids, I would totally want to raise a family there, it was so adorable.
10 minutes walking uphill at 6% grade
Then 20 minute AMRAP:
10 bulgarian split squats holding a 15# KB in each hand (each leg)
12 KB snatches with 25# KB (each arm)
20 leg raises holding weight above head toward ceiling
Thursday – Travel day to Chicago then straight to the gym. It’s amazing how exhausting travel can feel sometimes, when you’re seriously doing nothing. All you do is walk, sit, sit some more, sleep terribly with your mouth open to the disgusting airplane air, then get a rental car and drive to your new destination. But it’s seriously exhausting. If you’re ever doing this, don’t sit down. Go straight to the gym because then you won’t be able to come up with excuses since you’re already in the gym. That’s exactly what I did!
20 lunges holding dumbbells doing a curl at the bottom of each lunge and 15 burpees
Then 3 rounds:
And 3 rounds:
Friday – Chicago workout with no equipment needed then had my last book signing for the first leg of book tour!
3 rounds of:
2 minutes hand release push ups
2 minutes air squats
2 minutes burpees
2 minutes jumping lunges
2 minutes v-ups
2 minutes rest
Saturday – Travel day back HOOOOOME and ready to welcome me was the best guy ever (the fiancé was on his bachelor party!). He couldn’t stop kissing, it was too much. I slept on the couch with him that night, I was just so happy to snuggle with him. Man I love that dog.
ALSO, I had a handful of fun packages waiting for me like swimsuits for Mexico and navy booties for fall, but I opened the best package of all right away: Vanessa Bajaras Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind. The book is truly OUT.OF.CONTROL. The beauty, the recipes, the creativity. Unlike anything out there, especially unlike any dessert book out there. I’m in shock. Right away I made her pumpkin bread, but made it into muffins and can I just tell you something, it was the best pumpkin bread I’ve ever effing had. Ever. Go get this book, it comes out in just over a week!! PS, we head out on book tour together soon, so make sure to come visit us both!
Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.
