Good Morning!

Yesterday I had an awesome breakfast before running some errands.



Egg sandwich with cinnamon cream laughing cow cheese and on a whole wheat sandwich thin and fruit.  Satisfied.  The laughing cow cheeses are my best friend.


Lately I have been trying to switch up my workouts to include some running.  How I ran 11.7 miles at one point in my life (Yes, 11.7 to be exact) I will never know!  This number will never leave my memory thank you very much!

The other day I whipped out my new tank “Sore today, Stronger tomorrow”, that I got at the Blend Retreat and headed for a run, and boy was it hot!  I did 3.3 miles, woo hoo… That was a lot for me!


Soon enough I will be in Florida on the beach soaking up the sun, possibly with a margarita in my hand 🙂  Don’t be jealous.  I do intend to do some working out whether it be running, or getting in some crossfit type workouts.  So I don’t have any excuses when I get to Florida I went ahead and wrote out some workouts that I will be doing.  Since I will be gone for 7 days I have to do some sort of exercise or I will go crazy.

Here are some travel workouts that I put together that should keep me busy for a while, and maybe you will try them too.

travel WOD

You only need 3 things for some of these workouts:  A set of dumbbells, a Kettlebell, and a jump rope.  If you don’t have these you can certainly do them without it.  If it calls for jump rope you could do high knees or run in place, or just run  🙂



I wish I had 15 or 20 lb dumbbells, but 10’s will have to do.


If you don’t have a kettlebell you could do just leave out the swings or you could do some other kind of cardio like sprints, or mountain climbers!

My suggestion: Invest in one!  I have a 25lb Kettlbell that I bought at Dick’s and you can take it anywhere!

tabata travel

I love love love tabatas.  I used to do them all the time and they are so fun because you are constantly doing something and before you know it 25 minutes is up and you will get a great sweat in!  If you don’t have a kettlebell you can do regular sit ups!


Manmakers , well they suck, but they are a good full body workout.  If you don’t have a set of dumbbells you can just do it without them!  They are kind of like burpees, nobody really likes them, but they are great for you and you are USUALLY, maybe not always. happy after you complete them.  If you LOVE burpees, you are just a freak 🙂

KB 30

Now, this workout you really do need a kettlebell.  If you don’t have one just skip this workout 🙂  Like I said before, you should invest in one.  They are small and don’t take up a lot of room!

Do you like to workout when you travel?
