An arm workout that will leave you shaking


Monday- 3.5 miles with Jessica outside

It was so beautiful out! We both ended up wearing way more layers than we needed to so we stuck our extras in our mailbox. I’m loving the actual fall weather here in UT.

Laundry day= random workout attire, yoga capris and an over sized race shirt

I can’t wait to see how the boys do=) Oh, in case you’re wondering what the mall looks like from a toddler’s perspective, J stole my phone and took this.

After J’s nap we headed to the grocery store. I was picking out fruits and veggies and J kept pointing to the carrots. I told him I put some baby ones in the cart, but he insisted on a big one. So, I bought one big carrot. He worked on the for a good hour and loved it! Such a funny kid. . .


All in all it was a great start to the week. I even went to bed early, like I fell asleep at 7:30, woke up at 8:30 and was back to bed by 9.

what are your favorite arm workouts? how often do you workout your arms?

Do you like baby carrots or large carrots?





About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

    What a fun day! I do 2 arm workouts a week, I love how strong they make me feel! I would have to go with mini carrots, I eat them basically everyday and they are much easier to eat than a large one!

    I do not work out my arms enough (other than rock climbing)…All over strength workouts are going to be my goal for this winter.
    We are having the same weather in Denver!!

  3. Baha, loving the carrot! That is totally something I would do! 😉

  4. I just read your post regarding new running goals and that’s great! Good for you for challenging yourself! Baby carrot lover all the way!!

  5. I will have to try that arm workout! Insanity definitely left me shaking and extremely sore but I like that kind of stuff… 😉

  6. I just started using the Nike Training Club App too! And I love it, all the workouts are sooooo hard! As for carrots, I like the baby version. The big ones always end up tasting like dirt to me! ick!

  7. I love working out my arms! I try to do it one to two times a week. I used to hate working out my arms, but now I love it! Your Monday sounds super productive, way to go!!
