I am dropping in to share a workout with you guys exclusively from my Bootcamp program. This workout is from week three of the program and is designed to get that heart pumping!

After you complete the workout finish off with 30 minutes with 30 minutes of cardio, whether it’s a running, walking, spinning, Zumba, you name it.

The holidays are upon us and there are goodies everywhere, not to mention high stress levels. Stay focused with a good workout.

This workout can be done at the gym or at home.

August – {Nutritiously Sweet}

It’s a new month.August means summer is almost over. I have to say, I am quite happy about that. It means pregnancy is almost done and in the Fall I can resume “normal life.” Well not entirely as I will have a new role under my belt – Mommy.

That being said, I am making some slight changes to Nutritiously Sweet for the month of August and then September, expect to see new things! Changes are in the works, so stay tuned.

For now, while trying to figure out balancing life with a newborn, posts will not be as frequent but will follow this particular order:

Monday’s: Marvelous in My Monday {MIMM}

Tuesday’s: Off {or Baby related post}

Wednesday’s: Food related-  {WIAW post, recipe, grocery haul, etc.}

Thursday’s: Off {or Thinking out Loud”}

Friday’sOff

Saturday’s: Fitness/ Health – {Fitness tip, workout, playlist, etc.}

As a tidbit, I’d check the blog on Monday’s and Thursday’s – they’ll definitely be a post to check out both days, either from that day or day before. You can also subscribe to Nutritiously Sweet for email updates!

NEW LAYOUT officially begins Monday, August 3rd.

Sunday Funday Day HIIT!

It’s Sunday, so it calls for a Total Body HIIT!

Now that I am almost 35 Weeks pregnant, I really don’t have much energy nor the ability to do crazy workouts.

However, this 20-Minute HIIT workout helps me get my cardio and strength training on. I used 5lbs weights for this, but feel free to use whatever you’d like.

For this workout there are FIVE rounds; each round has two exercises performed for 60 seconds EACH! Repeat all five rounds twice for a 20-Minute heart pumping workout.

Feel free to rest in between rounds (I maybe rested for 10-15 seconds, if needed). Remember to warm-up and cool down after. And… GO!

Happy Sunday 🙂

Kettlebell Total Body Torch [Workout]

I’ve been having a blast using kettlebells!

Between doing TIU Kettle-toning and some of the Purely Twins Kettlebell 30 day challenge, I decided to make up one of my own kettlebells workouts to incorporate in my week.

I like kettlebells because not only are they good for strength training, it’s also great for cardio. Your heart-rate will go up and you’ll be sweaty, so be sure to fuel properly before and after.If you don’t have a Kettlebell, you can use dumbbells. I use a 10lb Kettlebell (sometimes 15lbs if I have the strength that day). This workout is a total body torch and works a little bit of everything – back, glutes, shoulders, abs, you name it. 

If you need form on any of these Kettlebell exercises, check out this website!

Warm-Up: 40 (to 60) Two-handed Kettlebell Swings (I divide into 4 sets of 10 or 15 and rest 30 seconds in between)

Workout: Do 3-4 Sets!

  1. Squats to Press w/ Kettlebell – 12 Reps
  2. Single-handed Kettlebell swing – 8 Reps (Right Arm)
  3. Single-handed Kettlebell swing – 8 Reps (Left Arm)
  4. Upright Row – 12 Reps
  5. Kettlebell Lunge to Press – 8 Reps (Right Leg- Press up as you lunge forward)
  6. Kettlebell Lunge to Press – 8 Reps (Left Leg)
  7. Deadlift (Sumo Style) – 12 Reps
  8. Kettlebell Plank With Row – 8 Reps (Right Arm- Start in plank then row)
  9. Kettlebell Plank With Row – 8 Reps (Left Arm)

Cool-Down: 10 Minutes, your choice. Sometimes I do THIS yoga segment.

And there you have it, your kettlebell torch workout this morning! It usually takes me about 30-40mins to complete (depending on how many sets and YOUR speed). 

Remember to consult your doctor before performing this and any exercise routine.
