Last night, I had the chance of lifetime of meeting Aerosmith front man and American Idol judge, Steven Tyler!  Occasionally, I report for a nightlife TV show here in Boston but rarely do I get the gigs with the famous people.  I was very nervous to interview him but thankfully unfortunately there were so many reporters I was only able to ask him 1 question and that was “Could you please say, ‘Hi I’m Stephen Tyler and I love that Dirty Water TV?'”  He looked dead straight in my eyes so intensely I felt slightly awkward and gave the show our shout out.

I saw Mila Kunis at the gym again yesterday as well so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised I no longer get star struck.

A few days ago on YouTube I posted a new gym free summer vacation workout video.  If you haven’t seen it, then you probably are not a subscriber so go make sure you subscribe!  Anyway, here are the details.  It’s a beginner-intermediate workout based on a little Pilates and gold standard strength training moves.  You do not need any equipment, but you do need willpower on vacation to make it happen.

Here is the routine:

  • 1 crunch
  • 1 single leg bridge on the left followed by 1 on the right
  • 2 crunches
  • 2 single leg bridges on the left side, followed by 2 on the right
  • 3 crunches
  • 3 single leg bridges on the left side, followed by 2 on the right
  • Repeat until you hit 10 crunches and 10 hip lifts

Come down on to your side, knees at a 90 degree angle so that your knees are in line with hips, feet flexed.

  • 20 clams (open and close)
  • 10 leg circles to the front
  • 10 leg circles to the back
  • Repeat 2 more times
  • 10 V-Twist side crunches
  • Switch sides and repeat on alternate side

Finish with 3 sets of 12 pushups!  Rest for 45 seconds in between sets.  Here is a link to the Summer Vacation Workout video as well if you prefer to watch it on YouTube.

Questions: Who is the biggest celeb you have encountered?  Do you workout while on vacation?

    Hands down… Jake Gyllenhaal! Got photo taken with him during sophomore year of college. It’s still a great celeb story!!

    I also met “Uncle Rico” from Napoleon Dynamite and got a photo with him too. :)

    P.S. I really like the new font on your blog! In the process of making the WP switch myself right now.

      lol! Uncle Rico?! That’s pretty funny but Jake is an amazing one! I’ve seen a lot but only spoken to a few. And thanks! The switch is not that hard as long as you don’t mind getting comments from people saying, “None of your links work” lol…

    great workout! some new moves that i haven’t seen or tried before (i.e. the clam).

    my biggest celebrity story is having orlando bloom nearly cut me in line for the bathroom at a party (although, he was quite gentlemanly and backed off when he saw me there and said, ‘oh, were you waiting?’ *swoon*). actually, that entire party was full of crazy celebrities (randomly got to join some friends when i was visiting LA), so it was sort of surreal for little ol’ me. but it was fun!

      The clam is harder if you have a band to wrap around right under your knees. Add lots of reps if you haven’t done it before to feel the burn :) Also, that is quite the experience! To be at a party is much different than working the press line!

    I’m headed to the beach right now. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to try your workout.

    I’ve met several band members of bands but the only real celeb was Rachel Bilson when I was in LA last year. I didn’t talk to her though. :/

    I love the workout clothes you’re wearing in the video! Where did you get them from?

    I’ve met a lot of Austrian and German celebrities, but not any worth mentioning.

  • Katie

    This might be a silly question, but in the video you say to repeat three times…. is that repeat three sets of 12 push ups? Or repeat three sets of the entire routine?

    I’m on vacation now and remembered you did a video on it. I just finished it! The pushups were the worst and I hate when my thighs burn! Thanks for a good workout :)
