Happy Birthday Megan

by Meghann on February 3, 2010

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday everyone!

First things first I need to get a BIG Happy Birthday shout out to my friend Megan!

Megan turns the big 2-3 today!

Happy Birthday Megan! Hope its a great one! :)

This morning my training schedule called for a ‘easy 2-3’ mile run.

I completed the 3 miles in 28 minutes and decided I wanted to get in a little strength training in before my shower. Being tight on time I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to test out the new DVD the folks at SparkPeople.com sent me to review.

IMG_8201

The Spark Fit, Firm & Fired Up DVD is comprised of seven 10 minute targeted strength work outs and one 15 minute cardio blast session. It is essentially set up where a person could do one of the 10 minute work outs each day of the week.

IMG_8202

Or they have a nifty section of the DVD that combines certain work outs depending on what body part you want to work on and how much time you have.

I selected the arm combo work out for this morning. It was a twenty minute session that combined the ‘All About Arms’ and ‘Pump Up Your Upper Body’ segments.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed these works outs. The moves were basic, but with my lack of strength training experience I appreciated that. My 5lb weights made each move a bit of a challenge and by the end I was happy with what I had just accomplished.

I wouldn’t use this DVD as my total day-to-day workout, but its nice to have to supplement short runs or on rest days when I need something light and easy.

Check out the bottom of this post for your chance to win your own copy of The Spark Fit, Firm & Fired Up DVD!!

Can I just say that I think Tina is a genius? Her easy and creative recipes never cease to amaze me! This morning I discovered another winner of hers when I recreated her Baked Oatmeal in an Instant.

IMG_8214

Pure genius I say!

I seem to have quite a build up of instant oatmeal packets in my cabinet that companies have sent me over the years.

Like this one.

IMG_8204

Truth is I never know what to do with it because I don’t like hot oatmeal, especially of the instant variety. :/

Thanks to Tina I now have that solution!

I followed her recipe exactly and it produced a fluffy bowl of baked oatmeal goodness.

IMG_8206

IMG_8212

I topped the baked oatmeal with honey peanut butter, pumpkin yogurt, and 1/2 an apple.

 IMG_8221

This was too good for words! I happily licked my bowl clean. :)

Thank you Tina for continue to inspiring me everyday! And Happy 2 Year Bloggiversary to Carrots ‘n’ Cake!

My favourite work-out dvd is the 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels. I did it two nights ago and am still sore from it. Though my knees feel like a baseball bat have been taken to them! My knees aren’t that great to start with!

I’ve been dabbling around in DVDs–Billy Blanks, the “500 calorie” workout, but I think overall, Jillian’s 30 Day Shred is the nicest, cleanest butt-kick in a short amount of time.

I’m a big fan of the 30 day shred… I’ve never done the full 30 day challenge for it, but I love using it when I’m snowed/rained into the house, on vacation, etc. This DVD looks awesome, too!

My favorite is the No More Trouble Zones DVD as well! It’s a great workout that always leaves me feeling really strong but what I really like is that I enjoy doing it! I’m not going to keep doing something that’s boring so this is obviously key.

The spark DVD looks similar in that it’s broken up into sections, I’d love to try it!

I have actually never done a workout video until recently which happened to be the biggest loser yoga video. I tried it b/c I’m a newbie to yoga and was a bit of a chicken to actually attend a class without knowing anything about yoga positions. I usually just attend classes (circuit training, bodypump, spin) at the gym instead or run outside so I don’t have a favorite but have been thinking about buying some.

I have to agree with a lot of readers and say that my favorite new work out is “The 30 Day Shred” — I like how quick it is, and I’ve learned lots of really effective moves that I use for quick “every day” tone-ups — like the walking push-up :)

I never use DVDs but I have done a few YouTube videos (which are basically the same thing!). And honestly, the only two I have done are the 30 Day Shred and Spark People. I didn’t even know SparkPeople had a DVD out!! I actually like SparkPeople video a little bit more bc I’m not a hardcore worker-outter (pardon my brain fart) and Jillian’s “encouragement” is sometimes a little hurtful.

Great baked oatmeal by the way!! =] I’m curious though, is the texture that much of a difference? I know you said you don’t like hot oatmeal, but wouldn’t this be considered hot, too? I don’t experiment much in the kitchen so the whole new texture, taste, etc. thing is kind of new to me.

My go to is a video called Body Sculpt by The Firm. It’s a total body work out… all weights! The moves are slow… so you can lift HEAVY! I ALWAYS feel this one the next day… and the few days after! It’s killer!

I love the Leslie Sansone walking DVDs… if for no other reason than I don’t have to THINK while doing them. 4 easy moves and some of the longer (faster) DVDs are sort of intense cardio.

I also LOVE the 10-minute Solutions series. What can I say? I’m a busy girl! I love DVDs that allow me to do 10 minutes – or MORE! Love combining shorter segments. :-) This DVD seems perfect for that!

I agree that No More Trouble Zones is a great strength training workout. I also am inexperienced at strength training, whenever I try to do it myself I get REALLY bored really quickly and I like how she always puts two moves together so you really feel the burn. You also hit EVERY muscle on that dvd. I get a little sick of hearing her talk sometimes, so i usually just mute it and play my own music. workout DVDs are great for me though cause they are so quick and save the time of going to the gym! I just wish i had some mirrors up cause i think that helps a lot too!

Quick Fix Arms & Legs or any Minna Lessig video. She’s so fun and isn’t afraid to let loose and do silly dance moves. Love her. But i wish I could find them all as DVDs. I found them as VHS’s. booo :)

I have disliked oatmeal all my life, but your recipes make me want to try it again!

Onto the DVD, my favorite DVD workout is a “Ball and Band” workout set that I got for cheap at a book sale- but this Spark workout DVD sounds great! I love the option of picking certain segments- it’s like 8 DVD’s in one!

I haven’t done workout videos in a while, but I did just order the 30 day shred from Amazon. Maybe it will become my favorite. I’m not a fan of working out inside, but I definitely need to add more strength training to my workouts. Amy

I wondered if this DVD would be worth buying. I sometimes watch their videos online to do the short 10 minute workouts and they are nice to jump start your morning or if you only have a short time. My favorite DVD I own is Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. I should check out her No More Trouble Zones.

No More Trouble Zones is ROUGH, but I love it. I notice a difference in my thighs and abs immediately.

My favorite DVD would be the 30 day shred. It’s a tough, quick workout that I can throw in the DVD player when I’m too lazy to walk to the gym. I also have a yoga DVD that I love (cannot remember what it’s called!!); I use it on days that I feel tight and need to loosen up.

Baked oatmeal sounds like a wonderful idea! I have a love/hate relationship with instant oatmeal – every once in a while I get a craving for it, but I usually only get about halfway through before finding it gross and ditching the rest.

My favorite work out DVD is my Dirty Dancing dance/cardio DVD. I used to take dance classes and its my favorite way to get in my daily work out.

I have an old workout video that I just love to pieces. It’s called Emergency Workout by Minna Lessig. (http://www.amazon.com/Minna-Emergency-Workout-Lessig/dp/B00005BJXP/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1265257905&sr=8-3)

I used it to lose my first 50 lbs, so I’m guessing nowadays it’s not as hard core as I’d like (and my copy is VHS so I don’t use it anymore!) But it’s my favorite because it got me on my journey to health. :)
