Back in my Groove and High 5 Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

I am happy happy happy because hello, Spring!!! I had no idea that my grumpiness was weather related until Spring arrived.  Did I mention that I’m happy?  So so so happy!  I may also be happy because I ran FOUR times this week, and two of them were on my lunch breaks.  Getting outside during the daylight is such a mood booster.  

I’m linking up today with Happy Fit Mama to share with you the posts I’ve read this week that are deserving of a virtual high five.

But first, 5 from Instagram:

  1. Happy sweaty selfie after my lunch run, boy did that run ever help my mood!
  2. Went to Canadian Tire to buy light bulbs and came home with a new 20lb kettlebell instead. Ooops!  I can’t wait to swing my new friend around this weekend 🙂
  3. On the weekend I had a great kettlebell workout on my deck, I’m totally digging this weather!
  4. Another great outdoor run in the daylight!!
  5. Amber woke me up Sunday by the sound of her rollerblading in the house.  When asked why she was blading inside she replied “Because I’ve already finished my homework, Mommy”.  Who can argue with that logic?
