Well, we’re finally here! CONGRATS on making it to Week 6 of the #SummerSWEATseries. Can I just say how incredible proud we are of you? All of your Instas, posts in our Facebook group and encouragement through the series has really made it above and beyond of what we’d ever thought it’d be.

When Lee and I first had this little idea, we never EVEN IMAGINED that we’d have over 2,000 people join our Facebook group, make the meals, participate in the workouts AND inspire others. You blew us away; and for that, we thank you.

Above all, we hope that you’ve felt inspired and motivation to move your body and eat a little cleaner. Making your health and happiness a priority is hard work, but I know you can do it. You’ve come this far, so don’t turn back now!

So who is ready for a serious detox after the 4th of July? I know I am!

I’ve been in Alabama for nearly two weeks with Tony because we’re in love and can’t get enough of eachother. Just being honest haha. In all seriousness, one of the best parts about my job is that I can work from anywhere and so this Summer I’ve been taking full advantage of that.

Of course I always make sure there is a gym nearby so I can either use my Classpass or workout on my own. Typically I’m a HUGE fan of group fitness classes because I love the competitiveness and fun atmosphere, however the #SummerSWEATseries has really changed how I workout. I don’t know about you all, but I’ve been LOVING the program we put together and look forward going to the gym every single day to work out on my own. It’s actually FUN and is starting to become a habit in my daily routine.

I’m so unbelievably excited to bring you the second week of the #SummerSWEATSeries! Can I just say that I’ve been blown away by your tremendous effort and motivation?! I LOVE seeing your photos in our Facebook group and on Instagram (use the hashtag #SummerSWEATSeries).

Last week I did a few of the workouts myself. My overall favorite was the 10 to 1 lower body + abs workoutI was able to get it done in 30 minutes and was a hot sweaty mess when finished. If you follow me on snapchat (ambitiouskitch), you probably already saw me working out in my living room screaming that my ass hurt.

I just recently signed up for Classpass in Chicago, so I’ve been checking out new studios and doing workouts I’ve never done before. This coupled with the #SummerSWEATSeries workouts have left me completely exhausted. Yesterday I even took a nap for 4 hours. And I’m usually anti-naps. On the bright side, I’m definitely seeing results, especially in my legs. It’s amazing how much a week of clean eating and intense workouts will do for your body.

But let’s get to this week’s workouts because again, they are AMAZING!

Hi! I apologize for the downtime on my site today. What a mess! Anyway I’m back with an epic Wellness Wednesday post that I was able to tie into the #SummerSWEATSeries. If you’re following our program along, I hope that you’ve been enjoying the workouts and meal plan. I’ve been doing my best to prep the meals and do the workouts; it’s been SO MUCH FUN! In fact, last night I made Lee’s Kung Pao Chicken and it was AMAZING; I can’t wait to have it for dinner tonight.

Ever since we started the Summer SWEAT Series, I’ve realized how much I needed to have a program that was realistic enough for me to stick to. Each and every time I’ve tried to follow a diet or meal plan, I always end up bingeing on the things I have felt were off limits. That’s why when we put this meal plan together, we thought about the foods that we LOVED to eat (including dessert!). And the workouts? Well, they’re definitely tough but the Facebook group is keeping me motivated, so thank you for coming along on this journey with Lee and I.

Even though we have planned workouts, I know that there are some days were I have a million things to do. Especially lately! And what does that mean exactly? Well sometimes I’m not able to get in a good 30 minute workout and really get my sweat on. Other times I’m traveling and don’t have all the equipment I need to make the workout as effective as it should be. That’s where this 10 minute FAT-BURNING workout comes in! I picked a mix of my favorite tough cardio and leg workouts to create an easy to follow calorie-burning workout!

Best of all you can do these moves ANYWHERE; there’s absolutely no equipment required! And trust me, this workout is going to get your heart rate up and bring it back down again quite a few times. #SWEATFEST

I think some of you may have been getting a sneak peek on Instagram and Snapchat of the new project I’m launching with Lee of Fit Foodie Finds. FINALLY I’m able to tell you more about it including details, what’s included, how you sign up and why you should!

 Summer SWEAT Series - a 6-week fitness and nutrition plan by two healthy food bloggers Ambitious Kitchen and Fit Foodie Finds #fitness #health #cleaneating

So here we go…

While Lee and I were on a trip together in March, we chatted about creating a 6-week fitness and nutrition program. It’s a little obvious why we wanted to create it because if you couldn’t tell, we are both incredibly passionate about those two subjects. It was easy for us to envision because both of our blogs focus on living a healthy, balanced lifestyle. We both also include clean eating recipes, indulgences and workouts. (Yes, we believe that there is always room for dessert!)

After months of hard work, little intricate details and some serious Skype sessions we are happy to announce that the Summer SWEAT Series starts June 14th. This is just an introduction to what’s involved! Below will give a little more detail into the series, but always feel free to leave a comment if you have a question and we’ll get back to you ASAP!
