Traveling Fitness

My family decided to take a road trip to visit some family. This was supposed to be a vacation. It still has potential, but is hard to classify as such when the 12-hour journey begins with a 13-month old vomiting all over the place. But we made it, everyone slept through the night, the vomit appears to have ceased, so the vacation can officially begin!
This morning, I did a quick workout in the hotel room, with no equipment. Here's what I did...
Lunges: 2 sets of 50 on each leg
Push-ups: 3 sets of 30
Wall-squats: Hold on wall for 2 minutes. Press arms against wall, and do bicep curl with no weights...the entire time (about 150 reps)
Tricep Dips: 3 sets of 20
Plank: Hold for 90 seconds
Total Workout? 20 minutes! Mood? 1,000,000 times better than when I went to bed last night.
How do you fit in your workout while traveling?

If I'm travelling to a warm climate, I like to go jogging. If I'm in a hotel, I'll use the hotel gym (if they have one). I've never been as creative as you with your equipment-less, in-room exercise.

Two sets of 50 on each leg???? Seriously Robyn! And I know that if I did 3 sets of 30 push ups, I may as well just lay flat on my face for the plank! Just six simple steps to a firmer, happier you!!! You should be an infomerical! Way to go though! I'm proud of you!
