Before I became a blogger I swear to you, I hadn't traveled for 8+ years... I was too afraid to take time off work!

Now, I am beyond-words-grateful that I am able to travel as part of my job. It's AMAZING... but to be honest, I always have a little anxiety leading up to the trip because it's HARD to keep up a healthy routine on the road. PLUS! Just because I'm traveling, doesn't mean I can full-on go on vacation-mode...I still have to work ALOT!

So in order to keep myself highly motivated to work, eat healthy (ish), and fight jet leg , I make sure to choose ONE healthy meal a day and get a workout in when I can!

Gyms can be hard to find when you’re traveling, especially in Japan. So unless there’s one in your hotel, it’s really pricey to get a drop-in pass at a gym. 

Therefore hotel room workouts a.k.a do-it-anywhere workouts really come in handy

Here’s one you can do anywhere! I did it on an edge of a cliff house and it was pretty damn epic.

I made it BBG style and used a 1L water bottle as a weight. I did this work out 3x while I was traveling on the road with Ian and it definitely made me sweat and feel good!

HOW:

Set a timer for 14 minutes and complete the first circuit as many rounds as possible (remember to focus first on form, then on speed). Rest for 1 minute after the timer goes off. Then, move onto the second circuit and set the timer for 14 minutes and repeat as many rounds as you can!

Circuit 1 (14 minutes)
