10 Minute HIIT Workout

results-or-excuses-GRIT-By-Brit

Hey gang!  Hope your week is off to an EXCELLENT start.   Here’s a 10 minute HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout video that I shot in Central Park NYC.  The workout is intense and efficient!   You need to 2 medium/heavy dumbbells (at least 8 pounds for women and 15 pounds for men).  To get the most out of the workout, do NOT take breaks unless I say so! 🙂

HIIT works because it forces us to push to our highest level of perceived exertion for short periods of time.  This increases our anaerobic threshold, which burns a TON of calories during and AFTER the workout.  Try  the workout for yourself and let me know what you think.  It’s  a great way to get sexy for summer!  #heygurlhey #heyboyhey

3-Day Detox Cleanse by Dr.OZ

Dr Oz 3 Day Detox Official

So, some of my best friends have been ranting and raving about the great results they’ve had with the Dr. Oz Juice Cleanse.  Have any of you tried the cleanse before?  Were you successful?  Obviously, I have serious FOMO (fear of missing out) and have to try it for myself.  I already went shopping and bought all of my ingredients (see pic below).

I’m especially excited about bathing in Epsom Salt every night! Growing up, my mother (a true country woman) would ALWAYS make me bathe in Epsom Salt to help soothe mosquito bites, achy muscles or open scrapes from playground accidents.   No matter the issue, an Epsom Salt bath was her go-to cure.

What’s really interesting about this “cleanse” is that the drinks actually include A LOT of food.  I spent $90 at Central Market today buying all of the ingredients.  If you look closely at each of the drinks, they each include almost 4 full servings of fruits and veggies – that’s AMAZING!  I have a feeling that the drinks are going to be very filling 😉

Also, I’m infatuated with Coconut Oil right now.  I like to use it on my skin and in my hair for deep conditioning, but never have I ingested it.   This will be a first.  Last, the almond butter, almond milk and flax seeds are nice additions to help ensure I get sufficient protein   Altogether, this cleanse is HEALTHY, BALANCED and LEGIT according to GRIT by Brit!

Follow me on Twitter @GRITbyBrit for my pictures and progress updates over the next 3 days.  Also, please share your cleanse stories if you’ve decided to try it too!

Hope you had a great weekend – CHOOSE to have a great week ahead!

My coffee table covered in fitness magazines & my hot green tea! 🙂

In January I love to revamp my workouts by pouring over fitness magazines and checking out all kinds of new exercises.  This past weekend I spent a lazy rainy Saturday afternoon putting together a hodgepodge of my personal favorite exercises to create a Total Body Trifecta (3 complete 50 minute workouts).  I plan to do 1 work out each day for the next 3 days.  I love these workouts because…

  • They each burn 500-600 calories
  • I can finish them in under 1 hour
  • They engage all of my major muscle groups
  • Each one has lots of core work to tone my tummy!

Try my ‘fitness trifecta’ and let me know how it goes.  You will see and feel results!  Enjoy 🙂

Here’s the workout I did this evening.  A good mix of cardio and resistance training.  Not too intense, but enough to “keep it tight.” 

Happy Tuesday – enjoy!

Where Da Ballers At?
