Fit Friday - Treats from the Kitchen and Treats at the Track

Another wonderful week in the books. Kids are back in school, the mornings are crisp but the days are still warm. Summer is coming to an end, but there is still plenty of sun to enjoy!. Ruthie is here with a great summery treat and I am sending you to the track to enjoy this weather. Happy Fit Friday!

I can hardly believe summer's almost over and I'm not quite sure how Labor Day's just a couple weeks away. I feel like a broken record anymore... how does time go so fast? It won't be long until the leaves are turning and we are into autumn weather around here. SO, lets get the most out of the last days of summer with these Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits!! Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits on www.cookingwithruthie.com is a fun treat for your end of summer parties!
 Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits are quick and easy to make plus they can be made ahead, covered with plastic wrap, and kept in the fridge for up to 8 hours. Then before you serve them just add a dollop of whipped topping and two strawberry slices for garnish. Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits on www.cookingwithruthie.com is a fun treat for your end of summer parties! Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits are a dessert that's easy on the waistline~ Angel food cake is a pretty low calorie cake, light whipped topping and strawberries make this a beautifully light dessert... in texture and calories :) Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits on www.cookingwithruthie.com is a fun treat for your end of summer parties!

Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits are sure to be adored where ever they are served!

Happy Fit Friday! Much Love and Peace~ Nichole and Ruthie

We are full of treats for you this week! Ruthie has brought us a yummy treat with her Strawberry Shortcake, one of my favorite summer desserts. Now it is time for a fun treat, an awesome workout! I am still loving this weather, so we are heading to the track for today's fun treat!

The track is one of my favorite places these days, both for my own workouts but also for bootcamp workouts.

As always you are going to warm up and stretch anything that feels tight. You don't want to jump right into any workout.

Round 1:
Run 100 m
10 pushups
20 broad jumps
30 walking lunges
(these last two are going to keep you moving around the track)
RPT for 2 full laps

Round 2:
Run 200 m
10 pushups
20 single leg broad jumps (alt legs)
30 step and squat (big step forward then squat)
RPT for 2 full laps

Round 3:
Run 400 m

The track is a great place to get creative and get a killer workout!


Happy Fit Friday
Much Love and Peace~
Ruthie and Nichole
