“Spring Fling” Kettlebell Circuit Workout

What a week!!! We left for Iowa early Friday morning and spent a long weekend with family and friends.  After a loonngg 10 hour drive we arrived back to Ohio late Monday night – Tuesday and Wednesday have been a mad dash to work full days, get unpacked, grocery shop, laundry and basically get our lives in somewhat order :)

It was worth it, though.  I was able to help prepare and attend my best friend’s bridal shower.  Her wedding theme is loosely “gatsby” so you get the bridal shower theme too.

Cute, right? I just love my bestie.  (Fun fact: she was my maid of honor at my wedding so you know how VIP she is to my life).

Sunday was spent with the fam celebrating Easter: Mass, my in-laws family potluck, & a dinner at home with my immediate family (including practiced yoga on the deck together!)

Like usual, my eating and drinking is always a little more excessive when I get the chance to go back home.  I generally don’t stress about it too much- I am having too much fun with my family and friends! Fortunately I can work it off when I get back with killer workouts.  I gave this workout a try last Thursday morning and I can assure you that it’s a nice and sweaty one ;)  Using kettlebells…my favorite!   

All you need is a kettlebell, so if you have one of your own you could totally take advantage of this spring weather and do it all outside! Or you could even use a dumbell :)  This spring weather is giving me some new life, so I am having fun with more intense-circuit style workouts to match my mood lately.  Give it a go and see if you feeeeel like SPRING when you’re done!
