Wknd Recap + sore arms=good workout


saturday- 2 miles on TM + 30 min arm workout

Saturday I spent the morning cleaning and scrubbing floors but as soon as I was done I was ready to workout. I really wanted to focus on arms, so I just warmed up on the treadmill then got to a killer arm workout. I did the following exercises with no break in between until my arms felt like jello.


bicep curls

assisted bicep curls

plank(45 sec)

shoulder press

plank rows

I love doing workouts like this when I’m crunched for time. I know what area I want to focus on so I do as many reps as possible with no break. The next day I’m always SO sore. If I’m not sore after weights I feel like I didn’t do enough, so mission accomplished.


Wknd Highlights

Friday we tried a new pizza place called Pier 49. I give it 3 stars out of 5. It wasn’t bad but def not the best.

J did chores and saved up his money so we could go to the dollar store and find a kite. I’m not sure what his deal was with finding a kite, but he cleaned his toy room in record time to earn money haha You know what? The dollar store had the exact one he wanted! BUT, he found a blow dart gun and couldn’t resist.

Went to dinner with my in laws at another new place(to me) called HuHot Mongolian Grill. It’s buffet style so you make your own bowl of whatever kind of pasta. I thought it was really good. I used the terriyaki sauce and piled it with mushrooms, broccoli, and cabbage(I had already eaten half of it).

Papa taught J how to use chopsticks. He even ate his Sunday morning crepes with them.

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.
