High Five Friday

Jumping on the High Five Friday wagon this week because sometimes you really do just need to celebrate the fact that it's Friday and you've made it through.  5 also represents many parts of my week so lets begin:

The number of states I visited in 2 days:
My week was all about work.  I'm in week 2 of a new role and while I love it, change is exhausting.  Especially when that change has you in 5 states in two days with a 4 hour delay!! oh and did I mention I did it all in 3 in heals?!

The number of minutes I lasted on the treadmill:
So when I actually did make it home all I wanted to do Wednesday was hit the gym hard.  The kids were cooperating so I intended to hit the treadmill but after just a few minutes, I realized my head had won out in the battle of focus.  It just wasn't there.  So I went to pure cross training and strength with the TRX system, which I LOVE.  Here's one of my favorite core moves:

The time I left work to get to my work function:
Thursday was more work related functions after work which meant no physical activity so I'm really looking forward to weekend of just leaving it out on the trail.  It's been calling my name all week and rain or shine, I will be out there...hopefully logging MANY miles. 

The number of glasses of wine I intend to have this weekend:
Yes, I'll spread it out over the course of three days but after the week I've had, I think I kind of deserve it!

So in the essence of starting off this weekend on the right foot I have two pictures that are sure to melt your heart (at least they did mine).  The first was actually taken by my significant other Monday when he was home with the kids, eating grahm crackers.  The second is MiniE's first real ponytail.  Can't you just die!?

Please Daddy can we have a graham cracker?
