Motivation Tuesday: Take the Gym with you!

If you haven’t noticed, my Motivation Monday posts have had a recurring theme: staying fit on vacation! The easiest thing, obviously, is to snag a hotel with a decent gym. But what if you’re going somewhere where a hotel-with-gym is nonexistent?

I’ve ran into this situation in France, Belgium, Cambodia, and Indonesia. Unless you’re a baller & staying at a big western hotel, you gotta improvise.

A jump rope & burpees seem easy, but pose a problem in a hotel situation. If you’re on the bottom floor, you’re golden. If not, the poor people below will hate you thumping around.


I’m really excited to try out the Dyna Pro Resistance Band during my trip! I’m using the green 15-20 pound band. Initially, I thought it would actually weigh 15-20 pounds, but this gem is light as a feather. It just adds 15-20 pounds of resistance, which is great for my workouts on the road. I’m so looking forward to my adventures and keeping in shape during them!

And, of course, taking tons of pictures 🙂

Happy travels,



Aloha and welcome! I'm a small business owner, athlete, and mom-to-be in Honolulu, Hawaii, seeking to live the kindest and most compassionate life I can. From plant-based recipes to low-waste beauty to business lessons to travel, this blog is all things real life.

    1. Hi! Thank you so much for nominating me for a liebster! And stopping by my blog 🙂 sorry for the late response, I’ve been traveling around Europe and have been pretty disconnected from everything. As soon as I’m home, though, I’ll be back into it! Just wanna let you know I didn’t forget/ignore 🙂
