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.
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.
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.

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